About Me:
My name is Ravenari, I'm also moonvoice @ Livejournal. I run the website www.wildspeak.com which has a forum on shamanism, and have been practicing shamanism myself for over 10 years.

While I am currently taking a break from my work in soul retrieval and depossession, I still occasionally do psychopomping and regularly draw totems, deities and spiritual artwork as part of my service to the gods.

I used to be very active in the online pagan community, administrating and moderating several pagan and shamanic forums; but these days I admin my own forum, and moderate a couple of livejournal groups, and that's about it.

You can find my Art Portfolio here.

Outside of my spirituality, I live in Western Australia, with my animal companions and a partner. I am currently waiting on a few things to fall into place so I can go back to university and gain a PhD in media analysis. I enjoy bushwalking, wildflower identification, studying animals and animal behaviour, and working in animal rehab (both wild and domestic; though I'm currently focused on rescue domestic animals).

A Wounded Shaman(ist)

Posted on June 15, 2010 at 8:07pm 1 Comment

In neo-shamanism, it has been bandied out - mistakenly - that a

shamanist must experience illness, sickness or even death in order to be

a shamanist or shaman. This has been bred out of the fact that in some

(but not all) Indigenous cultures, a shaman could occasionally be

hall-marked by the shaman's sickness, which could be mental or physical

in origin; or the shaman's death. The idea being that should a shaman

walk so close to the lands of the dead (or… Continue

Soul Healing and the Shaman

Posted on June 13, 2010 at 8:50pm 0 Comments

Another one I wrote a while back (for the Axis Mundi e-zine actually), but it's short (for me), and I liked it. Also seems relevant, as Brearley Arn started a discussion on the main forum about the relevance of titles, and I touch on that (at least as it specifically pertains to shamanism) here.

One of the primary jobs of many contemporary shamans, is to encompass all aspects of soul healing. In these practices it is commonly

held that the soul is transient entity.… Continue

About the Vilturj Pantheon/Gods

Posted on June 11, 2010 at 7:42pm 0 Comments

My goodness, it's hard to believe; really hard to believe I wrote this four years ago. I found myself reading over it again recently, and decided to post this here. These sorts of things never lose their relevance:



The gods of Vilturj are diverse. They exist in the physical world and the three otherworlds. They are planets, weather phenomena, animals and

states of mind. Some are distinctly male or female, while others blur

When Practicality and a Moon God Collide.

Posted on June 10, 2010 at 8:47pm 3 Comments

I have been working with, for, (insert religiously appropriate saying

there) D'miezak'r for some time now. In Vilturj, our moon is male, and

the sun is female (Karijiana). D'miezak'r is the narwhal, and Karijiana

is the white beluga. I actually work with both, though I swing more

commonly to D'miezak'r.



Once one starts doing serious work with D'miezak'r, it becomes forbidden, in Vilturj, to do any sort of ritual

or healing work on the days of the full moon.… Continue

Haha yep so what have you been up to besides joining an Alexandrian group?

You know that place was a hole and the truth hurt...they banned me countless times for being honest..mind you I still get in every time since they have no real way to get rid of anyone LOL Just because I can ;)
All they ever wanted was money anyway.

Did Tori ever finish his Tarot card set he was doing?
