Indie Shaman. The Shamanism Magazine

Advisory Note/Letter from the Editor.

In response to the current situation and latest government guidelines the print version of Indie Shaman magazine is currently suspended. Distributing the magazine would count as ‘non-essential travel’ and resources are currently limited due to staff sickness and self-isolation both here and undoubtedly also within the post office!

Fortunately we also have the PDF magazine which will continue to be available. Our April issue will be distributed in PDF format to all subscribers on the usual distribution date with the print version following to print subscribers as soon as feasibly and ethically possible.

We anticipate that this suspension will only affect the April issue of the magazine and hope that the delay in receiving a print copy of your magazine will be acceptable to all current print subscribers. However, please do contact us (via email or our contact form please) should you have any questions or concerns about your subscription.

During this time of physical social isolation please do join us in our Facebook group if you would like to talk to or chat with others within the community.

May you benefit from the comfort of your ancestors watching over you and yours


Indie Shaman is a leading shamanism magazine produced in the UK and distributed internationally for those interested in shamanism, animism, eco-spirituality and all things shamanic! With 48 pages in full colour this glossy magazine contains full feature articles aimed at people interested in shamanism and those 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.
