The New Story of Interbeing

Old Paradigm Thinking Versus Being Part Of The New Story Of Interbeing

It’s truly time for humanity to move beyond a world of separate little egos fighting for their slice of the pie to a world based on our deep interconnection, and infused with grace, magic, and beauty.

What is the old paradigm thinking you may ask? Well, we have all been conditioned by our environment, first by our parents, older siblings, relatives, neighbours, later on by the school system and by the time we leave school all our creative abilities are no longer existent. We live in a matrix of systems stacked upon systems that have only one purpose to keep us in conformity to the rules others define for us.

What Is A Shaman?

(as quoted by Curandero / Native Healer Don Oscar

A Shaman is one who develops a personal and intimate relationship with the Unseen world for the purpose of being of service as a healer. This relationship is cultivated experientially through selfinduced altered states of consciousness, ritual ceremony, and refined energetic awareness. Shamanism is not a religion. It is a spiritual practice grounded in a reverent awareness that the world is animated, conscious, and energetically interdependent.

Guiding Principles

  1. Everything is alive (animation/vitalism). Everything manifests a physical form from the same animated essence. The shaman attends to this essence.
  2. Everything is conscious (vigilance/observation). Everything watches us. The world is mirrored within us. The shaman learns to be a visionary observer.
  3. Everything is interconnected (relationship/reciprocity). Everything responds to and is in interdependent relationship to everything else. The shaman is a mediator of these interconnections and interdependent relationships.
