She did write a lot of posts on the topic and has tried to help my hardheaded self a bit now.
Ive known and encountered at least a handful of people I recall easily. One or two may have passed on.
As my grandfather was an archaeologist primarily in the middle and near east, I sought to be like him, but the avenues open were boring, americas, east, near east cultural anthro; and history.
However, it seems that had I engaged the americas cultural anthro, I wouldve learned about shamanism, but I did come acorss an essay or two in a anthropology of religion course at my second university. A few topics were the same, use of roots, medicine, retrieval of souls, etc. But none described how they do so.
Unfortunately I wrote the joke broke as a joke, and cannot take courses or buy books right now. What I have been doing is paying attention to nature, remembering my ancestors, and calling out to spirits for hearing and sight and them to teach me.
I can do basic visualization for five seconds, draw the LBRP in my mind, and recall it around me when needed, I have not done astral travel and generally dont recall my dreams. I am in need of making something out of nothing and caring for my community and self.
So, here we are.
