I notice that from what I read about Shamanism, is that you cannot bring yourself to it, usually it calls to you. 2 or 3 weeks ago I look in my desk at school to find Michael Harner's book. At first I thought it was a little silly and I started reading to see what it was all about. And now I'm getting increasingly more interested. I tried my first journey, I downloaded a shamanic drumming mp3. Nothing really happened. I'm going to try again soon, does anyone have any advice for someone beginning to practice shamanism? :D

I would say that the best way to learn would be to go to a basic workshop or go to a shaman who can treach you the ins and outs of calling in and working with spirit. It's a bit like learning to ride a bike, once you get it, you never look back. The Fountain of Shamanic studies would be a good place to start as they do basic workshops all around the country. Good Luck, Tom.

Before you sign up for a workshop you should check out the person teaching it. There are a lot of people who take courses and then become teachers.

I have a post on my blog blueplanetshaman.com called "Test the Teacher" that will serve you as a start to find the right person to help you on your journey.

Bottom line is they are there to help you to become the most unique and efficient person in Shamanism you can possibly be. A good teacher will help you to better than they are.
