'We have only to follow the thread of the hero's path and where we had though to find an abomination, we shall find a god. And where we had thought to slay another, we shall slay ourselves. Where we had thought to travel outward, we will come to the center of our own existence. And where we had thought to be alone, we will be with all the world.'.... ................................................(Joseph Campbell)

Shamanism is the world's oldest spiritual practice, dating back at least 30,000 years and possibly much longer. It has been called the first technique for engaging with the numinous - that which is greater than, beyond, or above the ordinary.

Shamanism is an animistic tradition and teaches that everything is one and that everything that is, organic and inorganic, living and dead, earthly and unearthly, has an individual spirit and consciousness. Shamans also believe that dimensions and realities exist beyond this one that we see around us and that it is possible to access other, normally hidden worlds to find practical help, physical healing and spiritual guidance. More and more women and men from many cultures and different religious backgrounds, or none, are returning to the practices of their remote ancestors and finding inspiration there.

The technique of shamanic journeying can give direct and uniquely personal access to ecstatic, creative experience in a disciplined and productive way. Zoë's practice, Core Shamanism, does not use hallucinogenic plants, or other substances to reach this state. Shifting from one state of consciousness to another uses our spirit-self, our intellect and our emotions and is a profoundly creative and consciousness-expanding action. Having witnessed many people make this 'journey' Zoe believes it is a basic human activity, as simple and accessible as breathing.
