Hi Paul. I'd like to add my welcome to Ed and Mary's. The study of shamanism is one of my personal passions. I'm so glad you've found us and hope you'll jump in right away by sharing a link or article that has meaning for you, commenting on others' posts--or--especially as you said, to contribute your own ideas and experiences around Shamanism.
