The “core shamanism” of Michael Harner has presented to a modern western audience the fundamentals of shamanism, derived from the practices of various indigenous cultures. These core practices, such as entering into altered states of consciousness through the use of drumming or hallucinogenic substances, communicating with animal spirit guides, and so on, are regarded as applicable even to those in a contemporary western context (Harner 1980). Some strands of the neo-shamanism influenced by Harner focus on “re-embedding” these indigenous spiritual practices “in the context, landscapes and cosmology and cultural knowledges of Northern Europe” (Blain 2002: 143, citing Lindquist 1997; see also Znamenski 2007: 273–320).
