Welcome to The Naked Shaman!
The information on this site is a blend of various shamanic traditions with a major emphasis towards matriarchal forms of Cherokee Medicine and Celtic and Bon Jhankri (Tibetan) Shamanism. We offer a variety of services as well that you may take advantage of as you so desire. On our part, we desire that you will become more empowered with every article that you read, every course that you take, or ritual that is done on your behalf.
There are a lot of courses listed for sale on our website, and all of the money from them is used to obtain sacred objects for Shamans from endangered matriarchal or Tibetan forms of spirituality to be able to do their work wherever they have been exiled to, and also to help fund the Bon Resistance in Tibet. As long as they are able to resist then the Chinese Communists cannot win by destroying their way of life. Like Native Americans in the USA and Canada, the Bon are the ancient tribal people of their land, and have been oppressed by the Hindus, Buddhists and now Chinese Communists in turn. We do whatever we can to help them maintain their ancient spirituality and culture just as we do for Native Americans here in the USA and Canada.
I began learning all of what I do when I was five years old (1960). Due to the repressive laws in this country, all forms of Native American spirituality were illegal until August of 1978. So, since we refused to give in, and therefore were "criminals" in our own land anyway, we just went on with it, and we fought with and killed our persecutors when we had to much like the Scots used to do in the UK. Now there are laws passed by fundamentalist Christians in the US Congress about what can be sold to US citizens according to age even though they can vote, drink alcoholic beverages, and be sent to fight and die in the white governments empire building wars in the oil producing nations around the Middle East. Hypocrisy is ever the way of the Destroyer Government and culture in Washington, D.C. It is for this reason that we limit some of the courses to people aged 21 years old or older here in the USA, but people in other countries have no need of worrying with that. If you do not live in the USA then you are welcome to order anything on this website that is not restricted to our Tibetan Kapalika Aghori or to the Knights of Mahakala.
Just as there are many great courses offered on this website for sale, there are also many others that will never be listed here, and they are by far the most powerful. These courses are reserved for our Apprentices in the Tibetan Kapalika Aghora Path. This is a Path of both Wisdom and Power, and these courses are potentially deadly if entrusted to those who are not spiritually covered and supervised in their spiritual growth. This process is about spiritual growth, personal empowerment and leadership preparation so that the day will come, before the end of their Apprenticeships, when our students will be supervised in working with their own Apprentices as well. Since they will someday become the spiritual leaders and teachers of the future then we reserve the absolute best for them even though most of what we offer here is still great. As we mentioned before, some of these courses are also shared with the Knights of Mahakala's "Inner Circle" members. No one can simply join this highest Order of Knights, but must join the Warrior Knights of the Golden Circle first, and then apply themselves to that work so as to possibly be chosen by the Grand Masters to be trained and tested for the higher Order. For more information see the "Warrior Knights of the GC" page.
Our courses and packages come with a special bonus for everyone. We are a non-profit Native American religious association called Naturopathic and Shamanic Services, Inc, and we fulfill our status by giving each customer at least as much as they have paid, and often more, in free courses besides what was purchased. We do not allow them to pick and choose what they will receive, but do so in accordance with the guidance given to us by the Great Mother Goddess and the Spirits of Nature. And, we don't live on the money from the courses that are sold, but only from the donations of our Apprentices
Apprenticeships are available in the Kapalika Aghora Path. Those people who have what it takes to become Apprentices also receive hundreds of other courses that are not even listed on this website. To find out about Apprenticeship then visit the page by that name which is the 24th from the top. All Apprenticeships are done on a donation (guru dakshina) basis. Considering the world economy at this time then that may be monetary, direct services or acts of loving kindness to the less fortunate ones in our world. Visit the Aghora Apprenticeship page for further details. NOTE: The basic Shamanism Apprenticeship is no longer available. If you are not willing to go all of the way, and to be all that you can be, then we would prefer that you study with someone else.
NOTE: All of our courses include three years of free consultations on how to make them work the best for you. This includes advice concerning healing work, spiritual growth and passing attunements to your own students when you become ready to do so. This will not turn you into a Shaman, but our ultimate goal is still your complete empowerment to whatever degree that is possible.
Thanks for visiting!
We hope you can find everything you need. The Naked Shaman is focused on providing high-quality service and customer satisfaction - we will do everything we can to meet your expectations.
With a variety of offerings to choose from, we're sure you'll be happy working with us. Look around our website and if you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact us.
Rebuilding the Asaga Medicine Society
We are currently rebuilding the ancient medicine society, and recovering from the attempts of patriarchal governments and religions to destroy us. They came pretty close to doing so a few times, but we have survived in spite of them! However, we are doing a few things differently such as using a multi-lineage model involving both Native American and Tibetan Bon pre-Hindu traditions as a means to amalgamate the energies of the East and the West into a cohesive spirituality that no one will ever have a hope of destroying again. We will soon have a new page for the Order of the Red Hand, which is the oldest surviving Order in the Asaga, and we have new pages below for the Grand Naga Order, the EarthKeepers Circle, the Warrior Knights of the Golden Circle and the Order of the Lotus Flower. Please read them, and then let us know what you think of them. There are more to come!
Donations for Hands-on Services
We will help anyone we can, and do our share of charity work, but we are just like you and have bills to pay. If you receive a direct service or ritual from us, other than the courses that you may order on this website, then you are expected to give a donation for it, and can do so here. If you don't know what to donate then consider what you would want to receive if you had our level of training and experience, and balance that with your current financial situation. Listen to the Goddess and She will guide you to a happy medium.
We hope to see you again! Check back later for new updates to our website. There's much more to come!
