Why would we bother with ancient techniques now when we have modern technology and medicine based on scientific research and concrete facts?
In this day and age, we have come to rely so heavily on science to dictate when, how and whether we heal or not. However, more than ever, our lives are filled with illness, stress and pressure.Modern medicine is amazing, but it’s not always enough on its own. Shamanism is becoming more and more popular in the western world, mainly because it works; the results speak for themselves. People are starting to take a closer look at what our ancestors knew all those years ago, and realising that it is more relevant than ever and can be used alongside modern medicine for the best results. This integration of the two,along with other empowering holistic and spiritual practices, is just what the world needs right now. Surely we have developed enough as a human race, to see that it doesn’t have to be one thing or the other? Just as shamanic practitioners have to adapt their methods to suit the modern age, medical science and society in general should stay open to learning from the vast well of powerful ancestral knowledge. It helps people adopt a more expanded view of the nature of the universe, rather than sticking to things you can 'prove'. Isn't it just as important to remain open to things that you can't 'disprove'?
