The Plastic Shaman Revisited

This article is a modified version of a prior article. The prior article attempted to compare and contrast the roles of guardianship, the neopagan fluffy bunny and the shamanic plastic shaman. The results were mixed. I’ve since broken out the neopagan parts into a separate article. This article has the shamanic/tribal elements broken out for consideration. Though this is a repeat of sorts, it was important to me to break out the elements that dealt directly with shamanic/tribal guardianship.

This article addresses the human expression of tribal guardianship and outsider appropriation. The thoughts are not meant to be a global indictment. Instead, the words are an exploration of where human nature can take the best of intentions.

The Inca Medicine Wheel - Part 1

This is the first in series of articles on the Inca Medicine Wheel. I found this model of the universe to be also a wonderful guide to progressing in my spiritual life. These articles are not meant to be a comprehensive, traditionally correct interpretation of the Inca Medicine Wheel. These articles are intended to share the inherent shamanic wisdom and spiritual utility present in this wheel.
