Core shamanism is the principles and practices of all shamanistic cultures, brought together, but isn't bound to any specific cultural groups beliefs or perspective. All done through and related to the research and development done by Michael Harner. Training in core shamanism requires students to alter their consciousness through classic shamanic non-drug techniques, such as meditation so students can find their own hidden spiritual connection, and transform their own lives. They learn how to utilize this, in restoring spiritual power and health, as well as how to heal yourself, others, and the planet. This practice is all over North America to Hawaii, over to Australia, New Zealand, and some even in Europe.
