LECTURES/ CONCERTS/ INDIVIDUAL SESSIONS/ MASSAGES
The 1st Festival of Shamanism and Ancestral Wisdom was created so that we could honour the Ancient Wisdom of our Ancestors, expand our own Consciousness and open up to the Consciousness of the Planet – Mother Earth. To let us experience Peace, Love, Harmony and Beauty of the World, in which we live together. We humans, but also All Other Beings. In respect for Nature and wisdom passed down from generation to generation.
The Festival of Shamanism is not only knowledge, but direct experience and transmission of the ancient wisdom of the Ancestors. Learning and embodying how to incorporate this Old Wisdom into our everyday lives. How to become a Modern Shaman and live in the flow of Love. How to hear and understand the message of Nature and Mother Earth for the New Times. How to be inspired by the Traditions of Native Tribes and the Elements of Nature. How to respect the Wisdom of the Ancestors, which follows the rhythm of the Earth, Nature, the Sun and the Moon and is passed down from generation to generation. How, in these turbulent and chaotic times, to find the Way Back to a simple life in a deep connection with Nature, the Earth and each other.
That's why we call like-minded and similarly feeling people to the Festival to create a Community... Because only together we can introduce real changes in this world...

Shamanism is one of the oldest spiritual and healing traditions of humanity that were present on Earth. Its roots go back to the beginnings of humanity and lie at the heart of every known culture. It is not philosophy or religion, but practical techniques, methods and beliefs, based on the ability to use the laws of Nature and Cosmos.
The word shaman means “the one who knows”, comes from the root sa – “to know” and comes from the language of the East Siberian Evenki. But a shaman is also “the one who searches in the dark.” Shamans are healers, priests, visionaries in communication with the world of gods and spirits. These are the predecessors of modern doctors, psychotherapists, psychiatrists and ecologists.
Shamanism itself occurred mainly in the tribal communities of Siberia and Central Asia, for which it was a fundamental factor of life. But elements of shamanism were and still are present on all continents of the world, as are the basic beliefs: the existence of two realities (visible earthly and invisible spiritual), similar cosmogony and belief in the Three Worlds: Lower, Middle – earthly and Upper, and the idea of the Cosmic Tree , which connects these three worlds.
Shamanic traditions share a belief in the existence of spirits and a spiritual world from which knowledge, power and healing come. And also the belief that everything that exists has a soul or spirit. The basic assumption of shamanism is the existence of the world of spirits, and a shaman is a person who can enter this world and cooperate with invisible powers.
For centuries, shamans have been maintaining harmony between the real and the spiritual world, between man and nature, healing, reading the future, and mediating relationships between people and spirits. They are a bridge between the earthly world and the invisible one, they mediate between the world of spirits and the everyday life of ordinary people.
According to shamans, everything that exists in nature is animate and has a soul. Minerals, plants, animals, rivers and even the entire universe have their own spirit or soul. Everything that lives is filled with energy and is connected to each other. We are connected with energy to everything around us, not only with people, but also with all of Nature, which creates the Circle of Life. Shamanism teaches that everything is connected via an invisible energy network, everyone influences others, the surrounding world, other people, Nature and the Elements. No one is separated. We live in a network of energetic, spiritual, social and mystical connections. Our every smallest move, every thought and decision introduces vibrations into this network, a new vibration. The natural landscape is Mother Earth and the Nature is sacred. Shamans can perceive and use the energy of stones, plants, mountains, rivers and animals in their practice. They assume the constant presence of the spiritual world in all manifestations of Nature.
Shamanism is also the memory of our ancestors, roots, tradition and culture. Respect for the past and those who lived before us. Using the ancient wisdom, knowledge and rituals of our ancestors. Appreciation of indigenous tribal traditions and cultures, that has largely been lost.

WHO IS A MODERN SHAMAN?
Today, modern shamans are not only traditional curranderos and Medicine Men living somewhere in the distant ends of the world. Their spirit and message can be found in the actions of many people in all areas of our lives – for example, doctors using natural medicine and herbal medicine, ecological activists and activists defending against the clearing of the jungle in the Amazon and protecting endangered species. They are writers and scientists. Biotherapists using energy for healing. Spiritual Travelers blazing trails in Our Multidimensional Reality. These are those who combine respect for the Tradition of their Ancestors with the eternal desire for curiosity and learning about the New...
Shamanism is not just about clothes, drums, wildness, trance and primal cultures - it is something much, much deeper... It is a connection with nature and our multidimensional reality at the deepest invisible level. It is respect for everything that exists. Caring for nature and the environment – local, but also for the entire planet. It is living in harmony with the rhythm of Nature, the phases of the moon, the energy of the Sun and the stars. It is seeing what has been lost and hidden by the modern world. It is a connection with our heart, our soul, intuition, and feeling the flow of life. Opening to what is invisible, to worlds and other realities that mystics and shamans have always talked about, and which are only now timidly being discovered by new physics. It is a conscious and responsible life – in balance, respect for ourselves and the world around us. Shamanism is mindfulness, intuition, conscious perception, opening to what is new and different, living in harmony with Nature and inner freedom.
Therefore, Modern Shamans are also ordinary people, just like us – people who respect Planet Earth and want to live in peace with all Others. Conscious, feeling and full of empathy. Because in fact, the Inner Shaman lives in each of us – this is the original part of us, forever connected to Nature and Life Cycles, longing for Ancestors, communities and ancient Oceans, listening to intuition and the voices of the forest. This is the hidden part of us that connects to our great Power and lives for greater purposes for all of Humanity. They are the Modern Guardians of the Earth...
