A friend of mine uses fire in his Shamanic ceremonies... but really, it's going to be hard to get any good information, since Shamanism is so interpreted - in other words, each Shaman could use it differently.

It's used, of course, in the big ceremonies (Imbolc, Lughnasa, Beltane, Samhain and the Equinoxes) in a symbolic way... Check out the Edinburgh Beltane celebrations for a more mainstream, public use of fire in the ceremony.

I think perhaps you need to narrow the question a bit! It would take years to link you to all the information about fire and shamanism! tongue2 what aspect are you interested in specifically?

Always use "so's your face" and "only on Tuesdays" in as many conversations possible

SOunds like there's a bit of confusion (or running together anyway) of paganism and shamanism here. They are different, no?

.....Can't juggle balls but I sure as hell can juggle details....

Even in Shamanism there are such a wide varieties of cultures under it that the question is way to broad to answer.
I can think of one ceremony of the top of my head tho that might be interesting to you tho. In peruvian shamanism there is a cleansing ceremony were the healee is stripped down to nothing goes to the center of the village and the shaman "spits" fire on every surface of hir body.
It would help to know why you want this information. Like is this for your personal practice or for an anthropological reason. And if your looking for neo-shamanic practices they very widely from one practitioner to another. I would recommend and various festivals to just ask people how it is incorporated in there practice. And that might even give you an interesting comparison in the use of fire in neo-shamanism vs neo-paganism. Good Luck and Happy hunting

Hi, I witnessed a beautiful ceremony at a party by some spanish(?) people who said it was an ancient celtic ceremony, however the words were written in spanish. Basically an alcoholic punch was made and put in a bowl, before being set on fire. Everyone had a go at ladling the burning liquid and pouring it back into the bowl until the flames died down. They then said the spell, which basically translated as that when the liquid was drunk the flames would burn all the negative spirits inside everyone and warm the positive ones. Everyone had a drink and it tasted amazing (although it burned like whisky on the way down the throat!) I was told the recipe but cant remember it at present, sorry smile
