The Shamanic Mindset
Shamans have a very different mindset about healing than modern Western medical professionals do. Shamans see their clients as whole, animated beings, not broken motionless pieces. They see a complete person.
Shamans recognize that the physical body, working mind, emotions, energetic body, and a spirit that moves within the person all at the same time.
Shamans see all physical, mental, and emotional illnesses as manifestations of spiritual and energetic imbalances. Therefore, spiritual and energetic intervention can have a positive impact on illness.
Shamans practice within the realm of Western Medicine by working an integrative practice with therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, and professional medical doctors.
