Modern Shamanism is an educational foundation created by Hamilton Souther that was designed to lead modern people through the exploration of shamanic principles in their daily lives.
The founders, after years of study in traditional shamanic systems, have condensed and distilled their knowledge into specific steps to create, for the first time, a comprehensive system for modern people to use in their daily lives to experience healing, love and success. The steps are presented in the form of an online course, as well as workshops and events for the same purposes. The basis for our members’ growth and development is in the Modern Shamanism community, where members interact and support one another.
Modern Shamanism is for people interested in answering their own questions— about the meaning of life, God, Spirit, purpose, self, identity, death, direction, and so on—in a shamanic context, while employing and applying immutable principles in modern society.
We do not promote any specific religions, belief systems, or dogmas. We provide “principles” to be explored in utterly individual ways, allowing for personal development entirely unique to the student.
Our members include people from a wide variety of backgrounds, including filmmakers, body workers, school teachers, business people, artists, engineers, programmers, scientists, and so on. These members, while perhaps appearing vastly different on the surface, share a common need: to engage “Spirit” in life. They want to learn a practice that can be utilized in any form of life or society and that has not been reduced to dogma or doctrine.
The most obvious benefit of Modern Shamanism lies in the uncovering of the Spirit that is already present in the modern world and bringing it to life. With that understanding, we like to say, “Spirit soars.”
