Shamans and War
    #3398291 - 11/23/04 02:33 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Hey folks I am wondering if anybody has any insights or has seen any studies done on a Shaman's place in tribal warfare, if any..

Any ideas on a shamanic perspective of peace?

Well, all I can tell you is that every single society that relied on Shamanism for protection have gotten their asses severely whooped by those societies relying on technology.

The proof is in the pudding.

You are taking things out of context. It was because these people felt that personal honor was more important than battlefield victories. They did take an ass whipping though.

"A warrior is a hunter. He calculates everything. That's control. Once his calculations are over, he acts. He lets go. That's abandon. A warrior is not a leaf at the mercy of the wind. No one can push him; no one can make him do things against himself or against his better judgment. A warrior is tuned to survive, and he survives in the best of all possible fashions." ― Carlos Castaneda

And when two shamanic tribes clashed?
