About ShamanPortal

Welcome, and thank you for visiting ShamanPortal!

ShamanPortal.org is dedicated to creating a vibrant global community of people striving to teach and learn about the rich heritage of Earth and Spirit honoring practiced by all shamanic traditions. We believe that the wisdom of these traditions are essential to maintaining spiritual, mental and physical balance in our modern world.

ShamanPortal welcomes visitors to post upcoming activities; find opportunities to interact with members of our community; join discussions on various shamanic topics through the Talking Stick Forum; browse through our comprehensive multimedia Shamanic Library and send suggestions for additions; and offer their shamanic services in our Resources section.

We are grateful for any feedback that will help us serve our community better! See what others wrote about us in our Community Feedback section.

Though our work is a labor of love, we believe in energy exchange. The costs associated with developing, programming, maintaining and expanding our site are paid for by modest Sponsorship Programs and Posting Fees. Please contact us if you are interested in joining our efforts.

A Note from the Publisher

In 1997, I traveled with John Perkins and Dream Change to visit the Shuar tribe in the heart of the Ecuadorian Amazon rain forest. There I made a promise, in a vision, to the spirit of the jungle. I promised to help it survive the onslaught of the encroaching Western civilization, to help preserve its vast spiritual and medicinal knowledge and to learn from the keepers of its wisdom.

This site is part of my effort to keep that promise and to share it with like-minded members of our global community. I want to thank the members of my group, the New York Shamanic Circle, for their support and inspiration.

Join me in creating a strong global shamanic community for the sake of our future generations.
