Goforth on Faith – The Modern Shaman: An Ancient Practice for a Modern World

When you hear the word, ‘Shaman,’ what is the image that comes to your mind? It seems that we hear that word more and more often, but what is modern Shamanism? Is it still a medicine man or woman in full regalia dancing or chanting over someone who is ill, or it is a religious practice, or something else entirely? Shaman and author, Carol Woodliff, joins us today to share her modern spin on this ancient practice. Carol is author of From Scared to Sacred: Lessons in Learning to Dance with Life, one of my favorite books! Later in the show, I’ll invite you to join me in a little experiment, at GoforthonFaith.com.
