Shamanic Therapy invites you to connect with your true self, with the spirits of your ancestors and with nature. The power to heal starts from within. That is not to say that conventional medicine or therapy is irrelevant, or to downplay their importance; instead, it is saying that the start of healing is in self-belief, to know who you are (not who you think you are or who you want to be) and to accept that reality of yourself (the authentic self), to accept the inherent wisdom of your own experiences and those of your ancestors (the spiritual self), and to be in harmony with nature, which includes the environment as well as all living organisms. When you do the inner work, face your worst shadows and learn to safely welcome them into the light, you will become whole, rooted and stable, with integrity and strength. At such a deep level of awareness and connection, your immune system is more robust, so even if you were to become sick, your chance to heal and recover is tremendously improved. And when you require conventional medicine or therapy, then those will be even more effective because you know you have done as much self-healing as possible and your vitality wants to quickly recover and resume its journey in life.
