Oni was away this episode, so Erin and I have a meandering (I do most of the meandering) conversation about friendship, coming out to friends and family about Paganism and the difficulties of meeting new people as you get older (at least for me). It is a long episode, so no music this time. It is a bit different from a regular show but we hope you like it.
In this episode Erin, Oni and I sit down to talk about the paranormal as entertainment. We discuss "reality TV", movies and our thoughts about it all, the good, the bad and the very, very bad.

The main topic is a spiritual reset, what to do when your spiritual growth has hit a plateau and you don't know how to move forward. Since I have been going back to basics in my spiritual practice, today's music choices come from that time in my early spiritual life as well. Enjoy.

In this episode I talk about my study of Shamanism, define or at least attempt to define Shamanism and talk about what makes a Shaman.
I cover the three types of Shaman: Traditional, Neo and Shamanic Practitioner. I talk about signs of a Shamanic calling and the Shamans world view.
The books I would recommend to read on Shamanism are:
Way of the Shaman by Micheal Harner an anthropological overview
The Complete Idiots Guide to Shamanism by Gini Graham Scott the best overall intro I could suggest
The Shaman's Doorway by Stephen Larson Transpersonal psychology and self help
Shamanism Archaic Techniques of Ecstasy by Mircea Eliade a classic of history and anthropology
