My experience reading the work about Shamanism was interesting. I felt that it covered the history of shamanism well and allowed the students to peer inside the different cultural aspects of Shamanism around the world. I was particularly intrigued by the in expansive information on the many different cultures that have been represented in reading 18.
I am very moved by the inclusiveness of all of the ancient civilizations that are a major part of our current civilizations pondering about the beginning of time, beings from other worlds, Mayans, Egyptians, Babylonians, Mesopotamia's contributions and so much more. There is one thing that I have noticed in many readings and studies is that many ethic cultures are discussed in dissociative terms with very little compassion, empathy or respect. These bodies of work by Bishop Pat, I felt to some degree sought to dispel that.
More so, I would have liked to read more about the Asian cultures contribution and mainly African contributions, although Egypt was covered it was limited at best. More effort in my opinion should be placed on the very cradle of civilizations contribution to these predicted world events and in just our very rights to existence. Once we are truly balanced in our perception, our finding, researching and sharing of information on a truly collective level then and only then will be able to truly see how we are all cosmically connected and significant.
I enjoyed the course!
