Hi all,

I'm moonvoice, I'm no stranger to bulletin boards and I'm ever so glad that I stumbled across this one.

I practice a form of Russian shamanism that has hybridised with native indigenous practices as I live in Perth, Western Australia. I have been practicing animal communication for some time and do it on behalf of friends, family and via word of mouth - but still don't consider myself 'professional' as I've never done any courses and don't intend to, nor will I ever do this as a financial livelihood as it goes against religious principles.

I learnt the ability of animal communication through my indigenous path in the shamanism, I am considered by elders and colleagues to be a turjvhecz, which, simply put means that my 'function' within my spirituality is to commune with animals on behalf of others. I prefer to work with the spiritual manifestations and meanings of animals, and am currently operating many projects on totems - including designing and illustrating my own deck or oracle of Australian totems.

I tend to spee in rare or uncommon species, particularly those indigenous to Australia as they're often marginalised by Australians themselves - who are constantly confronted with Americanised totems due to a higher saturation in our media of other indigenous paths.

I've just completed a Bachelor of Communications (yay, lots of hard work paid off!) and also enjoy working with runes, etc. in my spare time.

Thanks for having me!

Hi Moon.

Welcome.  I'm fascinated by shamanism but have never studied it fully.  I have one book on shamanism, but I don't think it was written very well, so I never go through it.  I need to find a better one.  

What is the difference between Russian Shamanism and any other?  I had never heard the term.  

Congrats on your degree.  I, too, have a degree in communications.  

Glad to have you here. :-)

Hello and welcome Moonvoice!  I love this message board and am so grateful to have found it - Bigcaat is a wonderful hostess.

I too am interested in Shamanism and would love to hear more about it.  Are there any websites you might recommend for general reading?
