1. HARMONY: Shamanism emphasizes the importance of harmony between humans, spirits or ancestors, and the power of nature. For example, a person who wants to harvest wild mountain ginseng should pray to the mountain spirit and ask for permission.
2. ECSTASY: Describes the experience of being in contact with a spirit. Staying in contact with spirits causes joy, healing, and the opening of mental capacities. It reminds people that the spirit world is accessible and powerful.
3. PRACTICAL SERVICE: Shamans must use their power to help people or they will be punished by the spirits. To keep people healthy, they must help preserve strong relationships between humans and spirits.
