Summary

Shamanistic practices reflect ancient human traditions of healing through altering consciousness, manipulating identity and psychosocial dynamics through constructs represented in the spirit world, and eliciting the biopsy-chosocial dynamics of community support. These traditions are rooted in human psychobiology and brain dynamics, giving them a continued relevance in the contemporary world. The widespread persistence of these practices and their resurgence in the modern world is vibrant testimony to the continued relevance of shamanic healing. These community-based spiritual practices may provide important antidotes to the contemporary malaise, alienation, and anomie among modern populations afflicted by violence, trauma, dislocation, and meaninglessness.
