Some Shamanism Links

Geoffrey Samuel

N.B. This list was provided as a resource for students at the University of Newcastle. I do not necessarily endorse the views of the authors whose works you may find on these pages.

In particular, many of these links (including those in Sections 1 and 2) are to sites run by neo-shamanic enthusiasts, people running neo-shamanic workshops, etc. They are NOT necessarily reliable sources on "what shamanism is" (a difficult question even for anthropologists, who tend to speak these days of there being various "shamanisms" rather than a single thing called "shamanism") but they are very useful if you want to know "what contemporary neo-shamans do".

This warning also applies to items such as the two FAQs, though the Shamanism-General Overview FAQ in particular contains a useful bibliography including many academic works.

This page is also not intended as an endorsement of any of the practices described on the sites to which links are supplied.

The list has not been updated recently but may still be useful.
