Urban shamanism, also known as "digital shamanism," is a school of thought inculcated from the convergence of technological advances, art movements, and Eastern mysticism. It parallels and is sometimes associated with technopaganism. In practice, it is the fusion of the biological and technological to achieve spiritual wisdom, self-mastery, healing powers, and enlightenment. I was inspired to paint this digital painting because I was a shaman in a number of lives, including this one as an "urban shaman." This piece is a self-portrait from one of my shamanic past lives.
