International School of Shamanism
   A school based in Atlanta that offers individual and group seminars and workshops, consultations, healing, rites of passage, and other services which aim to align an individual’s mind, body, and spirit and reconnect people with the sacredness of nature. It was founded by Thomas Richard Lake, who is described as “an anointed shaman” and has studied with North American, Mexican, and South American (Brazilian and Peruvian) shamans; his interest in shamanism derives from a background in theology and holistic psychotherapy. Like similar neoshamanic organizations, the school has more in common with New Age metanarratives of shamanism than with indigenous shamanisms embedded in local and community contexts.
