Applied Shamanism is a term adapted to reflect the practical application of certain core shamanic practices in a modern therapeutic context to assist with healing the self, the earth, and all itís beings. This includes, but is not limited to, forms of therapy, mediation, addiction counseling, and spiritual counseling. It specifically seeks to make these core practices relevant for people today. It emphasizes the difference between core practices and the practices unique to specific traditions and lineages. It insists that lineage practices belong to the culture and should not be taught or practiced by non-lineage holders or the uninitiated (those who do not have specific permission from the leaders of that culture to teach the practice, particularly to those outside of the lineage). It sees the recurring practices found in most cultures to be the inheritance of all beings and necessary to maintaining the well-being of the planet and all her inhabitants.
