    Many thanks for this informed overview Jose.
    To me, religion is simply a set of beliefs or spiritual practices that we live by. Whereas centrally organized religions usually imposed on us from away, are package with sales manuals (holy books), and rules and consequences,(laws) and are actually forms of spiritual regulation, or governance over the followers.
    Shamanism was almost wiped out in Canada by government. At a recent shaman training session (in Canada), I met several indigenous shamans who are organizing themselves nationally, and they too predict a shamanic resurgence .
