. Each individual's shamanic practice is different because each person is different. We have different talents and natural abilities, different ancestors and lineage, different ways of relating to the world. Each individual's contract and relationship with spirit and animal and land will reflect this. Shamanic growth and training is intimately concerned with exploring, celebrating and exploiting our 'individual' unique difference. To be genuinely open and of service to others, we must first learn, know and celebrate our own heart.
Much of what we experience here will be unique. In fact, the very 'personalized' nature of such experiences should indicate to us all the stronger how firmly we are connected to our own path - and not merely imitating the practices nor seeking to replicate the experiences of others.
