Susan J. McClellan welcomes you to

Shaman Song

An informational and cultural resource

for the shamanic journeyer



The site serves two purposes.

The first is informative, outlining the history and purpose of shamanism and providing a more detailed glimpse of the shamanic practices of specific cultures. For those new to shamanism, we recommended reading the Introduction, Core Shamanism , and Shamanism and Culture  pages, before visiting the pages devoted to and individual cultures. This will give you a basic framework from which to understand and explore these cultures.  Books and Resources  and Internet Links  will point you to other sources of information and teaching.

The second purpose of the site is keep you up-to-date with community news, events, workshops and trips. Please visit Susan's Teaching and News and Events  periodically for new listings

The Far North : Inuit

"I searched in the darkness, I was silent in the great silence of the dark. This is how I became an 'anguang' through visions and dreams and meetings with flying spirits... The ancient ones, dedicated their lives to the work of keeping the world in balance, they dedicated it to great things, immeasurable, enormous things."
-- Najagneq, Inuit Shaman
Native American

When the wind blows, that is my medicine.
When it rains, that is my medicine.
When it hails, that is my medicine.
When it becomes clear after the storm, that is my medicine.
-- by Wolf Collar, Shaman & Medicine Man (1870)

"Bridging the gap between the dead and the living, shamans obtained their vision, magic and healing power through dream-like trances."
Celtic Shamanism

"Three things that show a true human: a silent mouth, an incurious eye, and a fearless face."
