After twenty-five years of publication, the Cross-Cultural Shamanism Network ceased publication of the printed version of Shaman’s Drum due to on-going financial losses.

Roberta Louis, the former managing editor of Shaman’s Drum, has founded a new nonprofit organization, the Shaman’s Drum Foundation (SDF), which is endeavoring to fill the hole left by the demise of the journal.

SDF is starting up a new on-line journal—Shaman’s Drum Online—to continue exploring experiential shamanism around the world, and to provide shamanic practitioners and the general public with a new, comprehensive source of educational material on shamanism. While the journal itself will be available by subscription, SDF'S website will also provide an archive of educational and historic shamanic material free to the public.

SDF is currently selling back issues of Shaman’s Drum (the old, print version) through its website.

At present,
SDF is in the process of building this new endeavor from the ground up. To learn more about the Shaman’s Drum Foundation and Shaman’s Drum Online—or to find out how you can participate—visit
