A Faux Magazine Cover That Should Be Real

There have been plenty of faux magazine covers making the news recently, but what if this one were real? Perhaps someday the mainstream press will cover the important topic of shamanism. And the coverage could look like this…

Maybe someday!

There was a time when no one had access to a corner drugstore, no pharmaceuticals except what grew within walking distance, and no electrotechnology-dependent intervention for those who suffered. On any given day, we are only a heartbeat away from returning to a time like that. A comet. War. Natural disaster. Pandemic. Even now the rich and powerful want to reduce or even take away healthcare from millions of citizens right here in the U.S.

What will you do then? It is best to learn alternatives like shamanism. And then, even if the world remains disaster-free and congress should discover a sense of compassion in place of greed, you will still have the wonderful benefits of a shamanic practice. That is quite an upside! Imagine, a true and direct connection with the Divine and a code of conduct that will help you navigate in a sometimes lost and troubled world. It is a path of self development, compassion and service to those you love and to All That Is.

In short: A heart thing like few others.

Just a thought on a rainy day in Kentucky.

Aho & Namaste,


By the way, the drum photo with lightning is animated in the original Google Draw program, so if you’d like to see the lightning actually flashing, send me an email request (live free @ natural shaman drums dot com — no spaces) and I’ll send a copy in a reply.

Thanks for the template, educator Steven Katz.

  1. This is way cool, Bob! Wish it were so, and yes, maybe someday. In the meantime, I’m waiting for your online course in shamanism. I want to learn from YOU, so,anytime soon? Walk in beauty. –David R.

    1. Hello, David. Indeed, there are stirrings in various quarters to incorporate more and more shamanic, as well as other so-called “complementary and alternative” (CAM) techniques into pharmaceutically-dominated “modern” doctoring. This has been going on for a decade or two, spurred in part by research sponsored by the National Institute of Health and others. It will only occur though when doctors themselves step out of the blind spots erected between the concepts of treating versus healing. They should go hand in hand.

      Many thanks for asking about an online course. I’ve pondered this for years, but have not yet found a method by which I could satisfactorily share in ceremony with someone via digital. I prefer to be with others in person and in a more intimate setting where energies and spirits gather in the circle for healing. Old school, I know.

      But if I figure it out, I’ll let you know!

      Thanks for writing and sharing, David.
