The aim of Indie Shaman’s blog site is to share articles and information as widely as possible, to make them freely available and to make it easier to find connected articles and book reviews. The website itself is free (of cost to us) so we apologise for any adverts shared via WordPress!
The blog site is new and we are currently entering articles from old issues of Indie Shaman magazine* as well as book reviews from Shamanism Books. To find out when a new article comes online please subscribe to Indie Shaman WordPress.
* We will ask all authors, artists and contributors who haven’t already given permission for us to publish their articles on an Indie Shaman blog, before sharing their work on the new website.
Want to chat to like-minded people or would like some advice or support? Indie Shaman has a Facebook Discussion group which is a space where people can discuss shamanism and share information in a safe and supportive environment. (It is a closed group with posts only view-able by group members and membership needing to be approved first.)
There are people in our group with a wide range of experience including beginners and those well known in the field. The group ethos is that “there is no such thing as a stupid question, opinion or experience and no one truth or ‘right answer'” and we aim to treat all paths, opinions and views with equal respect.
Please do join us – Indie Shaman Facebook Group.

Note – this website will eventually be closing when all the reviews are transferred to our new Features Blog (but this may take some time to complete!)
Indie Shaman is a member of The Pagan and Heathen Symposium, a collection of diverse UK Pagan and Heathen organisations who have joined together to represent our members through a shared platform, allowing us to work effectively together towards a common goal. Work the Symposium has evolved to date includes: a Pagan friendly counsellor network; a code of conduct; input into religious education and the first step of introducing paganism to the UK National Curriculum and input into the UK consultation on marriage reform.
Indie Shaman’s representative on the Pagan and Heathen Symposium is June Kent. If you would like to put something forward for consideration by the Symposium please contact her via email, post or our contact page.
Please note that Indie Shaman is not exclusively Pagan and members of all denominations are most welcome.
