Siberian Shamans, the origin of shamans
This video documentary speaks about the nature of Siberia‚??s shamanism, as a religious practice which, despite the image which we may have, is full of contrasts and differences. Not responding to a single creed, Siberian shamanism varies according to the different traditions held by the various ethnic groups present in the Russian steppes, acting both as a means of spiritual and physical healing.
