SENSITIVE TOPIC WARNING: This episode briefly discusses rape and sexuality.
In this episode, Will and Lois along with special guests Christy LeCuyer and Anastasia Mencham are holding nothing back. We said we were going to take on some spicy topics and dive into some uncomfortable conversations that gets to be had and this is one of them we see as problematic in the healing and medicine communities and that's the sudden rise in "Popup Shamans" as we call them. By Popup Shamans we mean the ones that sit in one medicine ceremony or have one mystical experience or decide Shamanism is cool and suddenly decide they've found their new career - with no lineage, no mentor, nor proper initiation or apprenticeship, or even a true understanding of what shamanism is - they start holding ceremony and taking on clients. It's dangerous and is something that happening far too often leaving a swath of walking wounded in their wake. They share from their personal experience and give listeners valuable tips on what to look out for and how to protect yourself in ceremonial/medicine space - especially if sexuality is being introduced into a "healing space" under the guise of tantra or sacred sexuality.
You can't just call yourself a shaman. It doesn't work like that. The path of shamanism is a sacred one and it carries with it great power and great responsibility. It is a path of deep initiation. One just does not decide to be a shaman or will it so. It is a calling.
