I'm personally loving this... I'm gonna sit back and watch. I would like to know more about the origins of the term shamanism. Would either of you two like to recommend some good reading on the subject?

Sadly in my case it's information gleaned one thought at a time from hundreds of sources. The author Tom Brown Jr. had some interesting thoughts on shamanism, but he also had some really bizarre ones, and his experience is limited to only the teachings of a single native american tribe. Worth looking up, but don't take it as the gospel truth.

A lot of what I know about this subject and others comes from experimentation and spirit work, but I can hardly cite that as a definitive source.

May you find what you seek,

Here is the bible concerning shamanism "strictly speaking", that is in Siberia. It use a russian bibliography most westerner do not have acces to. I don't think there is an english version, even english works quotes it in french. This woman is a top scholar on the subject. While it's is not about the term shamanism and its uses and abuses, it explains what it is really about in siberian societies.

And : "Shamans: Siberian Spirituality and the Western Imagination" by Ronald Hutton.
This fine historian works on the real history of witchcraft, druidism, etc... Not ideologies, fantasies or doctrines, like cave men practiced wicca, druids were nature worshipers and modern "druidic" organisations are their continuity... Just plain, methodic, documented, history, with among other good things a strong attention for the cultural contexts.

I love learning about datura and it's cousins. The trip reports make for the best reads. Erowid had a couple of witches ointment stories that I found to be the most interesting out of all my report studies. Someday i'd like to try it but I simply just don't fuck with deliriants.

It is definitely an interesting experience. Here in the near future I plan to take a much higher dose than on previous occasions and see how it goes.
