Within Mahayana Buddhist traditions, there are oracle systems that have guided the course of the tradition and have even helped with the establishment of new schools of thought. We will explore the different forms of wisdom that have emerged out of relationships mediated by the oracle tradition between Tibetan Buddhist deities and well-known scholars. We will explore the worlds that opened through the relationship between Tsongkhapa and Manjushri and between Asanga and Maitreya, for example. Shamanism is a form of spiritual practice based in earth-wisdom traditions whose practices rely heavily on the practitioner’s capacity to form oracle relationships with the unseen powers of nature. One of the primary tasks for the shamanic initiate is to master the art of mediumship. Whenever shamans are working, they are expected to be able to offer a vehicle for helping spirits to enter into the world of ordinary reality to assist those in need. Shamans may be called upon to speak with those who have passed on or provide a channel for others to do so. They may also be asked to become a conduit for the subtle energies held in light and sound to be used effectively in all types of healing environments. We will look at the ways in which shamans use oracle work and the channeling of spirits in their work in serving others.
