Feminist Shamanism is a contemporary form of shamanism that was developed by Bear shaman Scarlet Kinney over more than a quarter century of shamanic practice and teaching. Feminist shamanism restores the Feminine principle to the practice of shamanism, while adhering to the basic principles, methods, and forms common to traditional shamanism. Feminist shamanic practices help one to mitigate personal, cultural, and ecological imbalances created by contemporary patriarchy.
