Shamanism

Shamanistic Study Program in Nepal

Shamanism is practiced by a large number of Nepal’s ethnic and linguistic tribal groups. Shamans function as spiritual leaders of the community and the therapeutic healers. Even today when modern medical treatment is relatively more available than earlier in most of rural Nepal, illness, over a prolonged period of time, often prompts the patient’s family to seek out spiritual guidance and a remedy from the Shamans. The shamans try to heal the patient by entering the spirit world into an ecstatic trance, chanting and quivering, being possessed by the spirits which apparently gives them healing powers to drive out the infectious spirit.
Shamanism refers to beliefs and practices regarding communication with the spiritual world. Practitioners of shamanism, known as shamans or dhammi/Jhankri in Nepalese local dialect, engage in alleviating traumas affecting the soul/spirit and in the treatment of ailments/illness of humans or domestic animals supposedly caused by evil spirits. Shamanism believes that the individual as well as the community itself is subject to invisible forces or spirits intending to do good or bad, and that the dhaami/jhankri can heal such illness induced by the evil spirits.
We are associated with Shamanism intuitions in Nepal to provide the full course of Shamans. We are proud to say that, from the three decades, several profession holders from international community had joined and achieved the skill of Shamans.
