Shamanism is possibly the oldest known system relating to the human endeavour to know and heal oneself, going back thousands of years we find the term emerged our of Siberia and is allied to witch doctors and medicine men / women. Shaman's conversed with nature and the forces both within and without, as everything is animated by spirit.
Very unorthodox to present day medicine and our Western cosmology, shamanism has a very unique understanding of our relationship to the web of life and to the oneness of being, from honouring of birth to the sacredness of death.
In 1998 Elisabeth founded the Academy of Shamanic Studies (NZ). She aims to teach Shamanism in a way that honours the cultural heritage of each person as well as the spirit and vibrations of the land. Elisabeth's vision is to share the ancient Shamanic principles of oneness and our interconnectedness, so we can live in harmony, love, honour and respect for each other and for all life forms.
