It is a certification from Indie Shaman that the person concerned has demonstrated they operate in an ethical manner which includes verifiying their ability to practice (including qualifications and certification where appropriate) and charge an appropriate fee in addition to complying with the above criteria. Other practitioners and traders are also welcome to apply for ethical certification in their own practice/trade.

Blogs

In 2009 Indie Shaman adopted a hedgehog from Secret World Wildlife Sanctuary. We were pleasantly surprised to then receive a rather cuddly hedgehog and Sham the wandering hedgehog was born! It was decided he could travel round and visit members around the world.Starting in the UK Sham has now visited many countries including Ireland, Scotland, Greece, the US, Peru and Spain. Most notably attending 2 courses in shamanism with Ross Heaven earning his own ‘ologies’ and discovering his true name Ezekiel. Shaman Sham the Wandering Hedgehog is now retired from his travels but you can still read his blog at Shaman Sham .
