Begin your cosmic journey
We’ve all discovered the healing power of nature over the last year, but can we tell you a secret? It’s been there all along. It’s both surprising and glorious that the amount of people who had never connected with or been soothed by the elements before. The people who have known about the power of nature all along, and have worked with it for generations, are shamans. While creating this issue, it was very important to us that we didn’t appropriate anything of theirs as our own. Instead, we celebrate what shamanism means in 2021 by talking to leading experts and letting them recommend the best ways for you to explore it from home. Empower yourself to connect with the earth below you, the sky above you, the air around you and the water across from you, and get ready to venture on a cosmic journey deep into your soul.
Our guest editor this issue is London-based leading sha-woman Lucyne Pearson. She’s bringing the concept firmly into the future with her card guide. Pick up your bonus Pocket Mantras deck with your copy of the magazine and get playing, and let her expert rituals inspire you to tap into your true purpose.
Love the idea of summer cacao ceremonies and ecstatic dance? The experts have you covered in an intense introductory read. Our money manifestation mentor Sarupa interprets the elements through her money ‘medicine wheel’, updating ancient ideas to help you rewrite your money story. We look into the idea of neoshamanism, and what that could mean for the New Age, then our family of experts introduce you to their favourite shamanic, witchy rituals. It wouldn’t be an issue of S&S without a quiz, so discover your spirit animal guide and see which famous name shares yours.
