January 09, 2019 - Wednesday 7:30-9pm - Contemporary Shamanism: Life Stories of Modern Day Shamans - with Helena Soholm

Come and hear the life stories of modern day shamans and how they navigate as healers in a globalized world.

Shamanism is an ancient healing tradition practiced by people all around the world. The word shaman originates from the Tungus people in Siberia. 
Anthropologists coined this term and have used it to refer to the spiritual and ceremonial leaders among indigenous cultures worldwide. In today’s society, there is a diversity of shamanic practices due to globalization and modernization.  

Helena Soholm will discuss her personal journey of becoming a shaman as well as the findings of her doctoral dissertation study on the lives of contemporary Western shamanic practitioners. Helena Soholm is a Seattle based psychotherapist and an initiated Korean shaman (mudang) with a practice focused on helping people with their spiritual development.
