What is the Web of Life?

Shamanism is the oldest spiritual practice and was common to almost all pre-modern societies for around 50,000 years.  All traditional tribal cultures lived in harmony with the earth and respected the sacred nature of the Web of Life, being in reverence for both the Feminine and Masculine Principles. They offered their gratitude for the blessings of Mother Earth as our Goddess and Creation, and Father Sky as our God and Creator.

Ancient cultures recognised that every natural living thing on earth was made by the Creator and has a Spirit. The Web of Life refers to the spiritual connection shared by all plants, animals, and minerals, together with the men and women, and the Earth herself. We can tap into this interconnectedness via Shamanic Journeys and ask Spirit what we can do to support the Earth and nature.

Why Do We Need to Participate?

The realm of spiritual ecology is a contemporary solution to the environmental crisis by providing reverence for and spiritual communication with Mother Earth. It is a two-way communication that returns our ancestors’ connection with Nature’s spiritual power.

The Roman Empire eradicated our connection to the Mother and Father by promoting the now dominant patriarchal system of control, which has held the masculine principle in supremacy, leading to the systematic abuse of both women and Mother Earth. Goddess worship and shamanic practices were either diluted or assimilated into the new hierarchy of Christianity. Labelled as heretical and discarded under the threat of punishment or death they were replaced with a mediated relationship with a vengeful god, colonialism, industrialisation, and technology.

In traditional tribal cultures localities had spirit guardians, families had protective ancestors, and individuals enjoyed a direct connection to Mother Earth through the spirits of plants and animals. They also enjoyed a direct relationship with Father Sky who was able to provide a constant source of loving guidance. These common themes run through the diverse shamanic cultural traditions that today bring us unified global truths and an important understanding of our relationship with the natural world.

The Land is alive and should be respected by humanity: by connecting with the energy of the Earth Goddess our role is to assist with re-establishing the right alignment with the Guardian Spirits of the Land and to heal our relationship with Mother Earth and the animals and plants who live in harmony with her.

At a time when the behaviour of humanity makes our future survival questionable, these principles can form the basis for a shift in consciousness to being more spiritually aware so that we can form a renewed relationship with Earth. 

As an old Native American prophecy states: 

“When the earth is ravaged and the animals are dying, a new tribe of people shall come unto the earth from many colours, classes, creeds, and who by their actions and deeds shall make the earth green again….”
