The Ancient and Profound Shamanism of Nepal Himalayas! Namaste

Meet Bhola

My name is Bhola Banstola, a Jhankri Shaman from Nepal with an extended family lineage history and practice in Shamanism. Welcome to my website, where I hope to help folks interested in traditional Shamanism understand my Path and invite you to join in with our courses. My greatest wish is to preserve and share the Shamanism of my tradition, keep it alive, and bring it to new generations of practitioners. I also support Nepali traditional lineage education (param-para) and culture and help poor and needy children go to regular schools through my work and the kindness of others. I believe that shamans should always serve their community in the best way they can.

The Shaman's Path

A 27th Generational Shaman

My Shamanic practices were born through direct lineage transmissions from my grandfather and father, from both human and spirit teachers, from dream instructions, from my own transformative experiences, and directly from Nature’s wisdom and omens.

Nepal Experiential Shamanic Pilgrimage 2024

A pilgrimage is a journey to sacred places to renew and recharge spiritually, to meet and learn from a teacher and to seek healing in far-off places. These are the most common forms of pilgrimage in Nepal.

Each day of these experiential pilgrimages will offer new revelations and opportunities to explore the richness of Nepali culture and practice, presented in morning, afternoon and night sessions with lunch and dinner breaks.
