CSEE

Shamanism

 is the oldest spiritual tradition on earth; a present, reciprocal and reverent way of being with Nature. This indigenous wisdom is vital to the holistic health and sustainability of humanity and is being threatened with extinction. CSEE is dedicated to supporting the preservation, exchange, dissemination and evolution of this wisdom.

Education

CSEE works with shamanic elders around the world to develop educational documentaries and products that preserve and share shamanic teachings.
We provide educational scholarships to future shamanic leaders of the Shipibo tribe in the Amazon basin, empowering them to bridge both the modern world and their traditional shamanic upbringing. All CSEE scholarship recipients accept educational support with the agreement that they will return to work in their home villages for at least two years once their education is complete to help protect and sustain their cultural traditions and knowledge and provide leadership and economic stability to their communities.

Exchange

The Center believes in making shamanic wisdom and practices available to all. We support direct cultural exchange between shamans around the world to share unique and universal wisdom on healing, sustainable and balanced living and encourage new forms of shamanism pertinent to the modern world. We provide westerners the opportunity to engage directly with indigenous leaders and healers through educational programs and cultural presentations.

The MISSION of CSEE is to preserve the shamanic wisdom, culture, practice and traditional ways of life of indigenous people worldwide.

Our VISION is to bring shamans and healers of different cultures together to both stimulate their own practices as well as encourage new forms of shamanism to emerge.

We SUPPORT this vision with the creation of events, programs, products and documentary media that promote the continuation of indigenous song, dance, healing practices, ceremonies, arts and crafts and teachings.

Our HOPE is that by documenting, honoring and supporting indigenous people, we will re-acquaint the world with its shamanic inheritance and help indigenous people recognize the value of their unique cultures.
