Shamanism Tour in Nepal
Shamanism Tour in Nepal
Shamanism is practised globally and is one of the oldest methods of healing that combines similar religions around the world. It is not only limited to time-tested methods of healing as it is understood but far more deeply rooted in the everyday lives of the people (mental and emotional states, personality development, shaping their future). Shamans are known as Dhami and Jhankri while each ethnic group has its own name according to its own dialects. They will connect the physical and spiritual world to one another, heal their sickness, and tell the future. Shamans also conduct rituals prescribed by spirits that identify. Each Shaman uses sacred artefacts, instruments, songs, and dances to invoke and retain deity inspiration. They dedicate their lives to society, and it is their duty to ensure family and group well-being. One of the new draws for many spiritual travelers visiting the Himalayas is the Shamanism tour in Nepal. Shamanism in Nepal has long been practised, co-existing with Hinduism and Buddhism. Our program of Shaman Tour is a free itinerary program and we develop programs for you at your preference. It is fascinating to see methods they implement during the rituals, invocation and retreats which varies depending on cultural background and the languages.
