Why this blog?

Hello and welcome to the Arcane Shaman blog!

A Shaman is defined as a person who acts as intermediary between the natural and supernatural worlds. Arcane Shaman is a blog exploring spirituality in a holistic, modern and intersectional context. 

Many people today see spirituality as separate from their everyday lives, but it is not. Spirituality is about personal growth, health and wellness. It’s about creating balance and harmony within yourself and in the world. It’s about opening the heart and mind and connecting to the divine (whatever form that takes for you).


Being a witch or shaman, acting as an intermediary in the natural world, also means having a responsibility of being an Earth Steward. We are responsible for caring for the natural world and forces that allow us to live and that fuel our workings.


Arcane Shaman explores spirituality, wellness and earth stewardship on a global scale in all it’s forms and nuances in hopes that you find inspiration for your own journey.
