This is the 4th broadcast in a series of shamanic practices that were discussed at the annual practicum that LightSong conducts. These are the teachings of LightSong’s 31st practicum 2017.  In this episode of the LightSong School of 21st Century Shamanism Podcast, Jan Engels-Smith reviews the three previous pod casts on this subject and then discusses in detail the concept of beliefs.

This pod cast concentrates on the programmability of humans and how these programs are carried in the chakra system which is where beliefs are stored in the human body.  How beliefs are often blind beliefs and until people understand and discover what they actually believes these beliefs will determine what a person manifests and how they will view the world.

Jan Engels-Smith also discusses this with three other practitioners and teachers at LightSong.  Each person contributes riveting stories and examples from experiences they have had with working with clients.

Rank #14: LightSong Podcast: Interview with Jan Engels-Smith and David Newell

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode of the LightSong School of 21st Century Shamanism Podcast, Jan Engels-Smith is interviewed by David Newell of Inner Truth.  A broadcast and show out of the UK.  

What is shamanism and how is it useful to us in day-to-day life? Are there other realms we can journey to and experience? Has science disproved or given further evidence to support this ancient practice?

These are some of the questions I put to Jan Engels-Smith, a shamanic practitioner and the founder of the LightSong School of 21st Century Shamanism and Energy Medicine where she teaches shamanism and journeying techniques.

Central to Jan’s work is the philosophy that shamanism is not the preserve of a gifted few seers or just for indigenous cultures to practice but that we all have the capacity to cultivate a shamanic skillset through journeying and practices that help move us from left brain focus into right-brain experience.

In her book, Through the Rabbit Hole, Jan talks about dominance of left-brained thinking in our culture and in particular the limiting belief that all we see is all there is. This belief keeps our imagination and our other subtler senses locked away from the wider world around us. Opening up our minds to other realms and possibilities connects us in new ways to the universe.

You might think scientific findings would be at odds with a shamanic perspective of life but actually there’s more correlation than you would first imagine. Relatively theory and quantum mechanics indicate there is a vast amount of the universe not observable to the human eye, indeed almost all of it is dark matter and dark energy. Within that, it’s already been shown for some time that our consciousness has a direct impact on the world around us, a phenomenon known more widely as the observer effect and something that has been espoused in shamanism for millennia.

With this level of cross-over though, shamanism still remains a niche activity in popular culture today. I caught up with Jan to talk about what has happened to shamanism in the West, the ways it can help cultivate a relationship with spirit and mostly importantly help us find greater fulfillment and peace in life.

Episode Topics
  • What is shamanism and what does it mean for the average person?
  • Why has shamanism been traditionally seen as a craft of a select few?
  • How does shamanism, journeying and other ritual practices help people?
  • How does our left brain and right brain relate to the practice?
  • What is shamanic journeying and how do we do it?
  • What are the realms available to us in shamanic journeying?
  • What is a power animal and how does it relate to a person?

 You can learn more about Jan’s shamanism courses at LightSong including her entry-level Shamanic Journey Skills that is also available online.
