Searching for the European Shaman
First some background. Europe's shamanic tradition, in my opinion, mostly evolved into other forms before it was lost, and this makes it a bit obscure... To the degree that some scholars have insisted that Europe was never a shamanic culture. I disagree, and I explain in detail in the fully researched article on this subject.
Not to mention that this statement does not apply to all European cultures, as we know that shamanic practices continued strongly among the Saami of Lapland, the Magyars of Hungary, and among pockets of ethnic minority groups in rural areas of the Slavic lands, such as the Mari of Russia.
