The Society is formed under the guidance and directives of the Spirits and Ancestors of the Wolven Path Tradition and in community with all Animist & Shamanic Traditions that hold the earth in relationship to the Great Mystery.
The name of the Society reflects the worldwide community of Animist & Shamanic Practice and belief, and the unifying harmony between the Spirit and the Mundane, Heaven and Earth; and the inevitable living destiny of the journey therein.
The purposes of the Society are;
To foster, support and advance the spirit and practice of Animism and the Shamanic Way and our relationship to and with the Universal Creator, The Great Mystery, manifesting this revelation to all our relations.
So that those who have studied together in kindred or spirit, may continue to have community and to acknowledge themselves as a part of the worldwide and universal kinship of Animism thus providing a forum of expression for the sharing of spiritual revelation, practice, experience and mutual support among members, as well as fostering a sense of global community and commitment and to be that mirror that reflects the worldwide community of Animism & Shamanic Practice .
To provide continuing opportunity for Animist & Shamanic study, learning and teaching.
To be a visible light for others of the Animism and to be Sacred Witness to the spirit of Animism & the Shamanic Way and to provide the performance of spiritual rites by its ‘clergy’, such as presiding over marriages, in accord with both the doctrine of the Wolven Path Tradition and the constitution of the Sacred Circle of the Great Mystery Shamanic Society, and the laws & regulations of the appropriate Countries, States & Provinces in which they are called to.
To be a focus of the Universal Creator Spirit and Spirits, The Great Mystery and to ripple that compassionate energy, unity and healing outwards to the Sacred Earth, her children, to the Sacred Stars and the waiting Universe and to be a tending force for The Earth.
To stand firm and provide a focus as spiritual warriors of love in times of despair or suffering as well as joy and celebration
To provide learning and teaching for those called to Animism & the Way of the Shaman and guidance for this Sacred Earth and her children both now and to the generations to come.
To provide a framework for registered practitioners of Animist and Shamanic Craft & Practice, which can be aspired to, referenced by and grown from.
The Society is a Forum & Community of many Animist & Shamanic Traditions and whilst not holding to any one, the Society is underpinned and founded by the Wolven Path Lineage Tradition and its community traditions, though the Society is not the Wolven Path Tradition.
