Wild and Home
Understanding that we are connected, to everything, is fundamentally the essence of shamanism. For tens of thousands of years a shamanic way of being has existed in our culture and within us. Being connected actually allows us to live life fully… a level of consciousness that allows for the enjoyment of all our human experiences to flow and be sustainable in all regards.
At the root of how to create this connection are the senses. One central understanding within shamanism is that what it is to be human, in essence, is to feel. It is though our collective senses that we feel the individual that we are.
The shamanic way is to learn how through direct experience, often encountering the unknown along the way. By integrating our awakened bodily senses with the mind and with our life force, such experiences can bring us into balance, wisdom and joy. The depth, fullness and quality of which, allows us to discern ourselves, what it is to be alive and all that is life.

Living with opposites and seeming contradictions in life and our relationships can be a challenging position to be in. We can contort ourselves into many shapes or compromise and therefore not be who we truly are. Yet Nature is always at peace with the cyclical and rhythmic nature of the swing between opposites.
