Indie Shaman Magazine

Indie Shaman is closed until Monday 3rd July due to holidays. You are still able to place orders during our break but we will not be able to process any new sales until our return. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience.

Indie Shaman magazine is a 48 page full colour glossy magazine containing full feature articles designed for those interested in shamanism and people interested in living ethically according to shamanic principles. Online subscription also available in PDF and Flipbook format.

Aimed to be accessible, Indie Shaman magazine is printed in a book rather than magazine (column) layout, which also limits the amount of scrolling necessary when reading the pdf version. Printed editions of the magazine are produced in the UK on FSC registered paper.
