Shamanism and Science – One Step from Building Bridges to Cooperation

26.06.2016 by Dr. Andreas Hirsch

Report from the FSSE-Conference at the Johannes Kepler University in June 2016

Shamanism and science – at first glance these represent two paths of knowledge that couldn't be more different. On second glance although not only inner commonalities of those two ways of looking at the world emerge, but also quite a few opportunities to build bridges, even to collaborate in a complementary way. Such an opportunity to ponder all things they share, was the conference "Shamanism and Science", which was realized by the Foundation for Shamanic Studies Europe in Linz. On 9th of June 2016 at the Johannes Kepler University Linz, experts from different areas of science met with practitioners of shamanism – all in all more that 165 participants from more than 10 countries and two continents.
