Tantra is a movement that transcends sectarianism. It is found in Hinduism, Buddhism and Shamanism, the three principal religions of India. The wisdom and knowledge of ancient shamanic traditions are being revived in the west as healing techniques. Here, an introduction to shamanism and how it can restore us to wholeness.

You will, in any case, be an observer and our small group will meet daily both formally and informally for philosophical dialogue in which we share and reflect on our experiences and observations. Most of your fellow travelers will probably have had some exposure to some of these traditions in some form.
These enlightened ones-the siddha purushas of Satyaloka- have attained tremendous powers and have been given the ability to help practically any serious seeker to attain enlightenment by a great being who dwells there, a sage whom the people call Sri Kalki Bhagavan. This great being is world renowned for his ability to give enlightenment to others. Seekers from many lands have gathered at Satyaloka to attend intensive retreats for enlightenment (mukti yajnas) and to take intensive training and initiation to help others.
Their core technique is called shamanic journeying or traveling into 'nonordinary reality'. A shaman is a man or a woman who enters into an altered state of consciousness by using monotonous sounds like drumming, rattling or singing to access hidden information. They travel out of time and space. They visualize an opening into the earth like a cave or hole to enter into this other realm. It was the famous author Carlos Castaneda who first named this realm 'nonordinary reality'. Shamanism comprises a range of traditional beliefs and practices concerned with communication with the spirit world. Helpers in the other world appear either as power animals or as helpers in human or god-like form. Your guardian angel can also present himself in some form.
Taken from the Tungus of Siberia, the term shaman translates to “he who knows.” Shamanism has roots in other cultures as well, including Native Americans, South American Indians and cultures in Africa, South Asia and East Asia. Among contemporary North Americans, new forms of shamanistic practice include “techno-shamanism,” which uses new technologies to electronically enhance the sounds of music used in rituals, and “neo-shamanism,” a spiritual movement that has grown out of a combination of anthropology and environmentalism.
