Shamanism Without Borders

Global Response Network

Shamanism Without Borders (SWB) is a global response network of shamanic practitioners who tend to traumatic events around the world. SWB began as a guidebook, written by members of the Society of Shamanic Practice, detailing a cross-cultural method for tending to these incidents. Since then the book has become a supportive tool for a global network of practitioners who respond to natural disasters, acts of terrorism, war, pollution, and anything that causes disruption and suffering to humanity, to the animal and plant life, and the earth’s delicate bio-system.

How Our Response Network Works

Our response network is led by a volunteer group of shamanic practitioners that we call SWB Community Leaders. Our Community Leaders facilitate Shamanism Without Borders events within their local communities through in-person events, and to our broader global community through online events. They are often some of the first people to move into service when a traumatic event occurs.

SWB events are by nature community healing events and provide an opportunity for anyone interested in being of service to participate. Our community leaders are trained in the Shamanism Without Borders process and are able to facilitate the process for both novice and advanced practitioners.

SWB event announcements are made via email and through our SWB Facebook Group. We also post upcoming events on our web calendar below. If you would like to join our email list, please become a member of sign up for our next free community call to action.

What does an SWB process look like?

When a traumatic event occurs, an SWB leader will begin by asking Spirit what is needed. Based on the answer they will put out an announcement to gather a group for service. 

“When we prepare for our healing ceremonies, we journey to the spirit of the situation to look for guidance. This might be the spirit of the land, the soul of a community, country or the spirit of a culture, or collective consciousness. We ask the simple question, “What would be the most effective way that we can be of service?”. Sometimes the answer is clear. Sometimes it is unexpected. Sometimes the answer is to not do any ceremony at all.

 

Because we conduct this journey with the assistance of our tried and true spirit friends of kindness, we can trust that their answers come from a place more resourced than we could find on our own. This sacred listening practice is revelatory and healing to all beings. As we are all connected through unseen webs, answering the call for healing in this way brings healing to ourselves as well, through a beautiful circle of offering and gratitude. Blessed be.”
