Shadowrun Wiki
Shaman (Shadowrun, Echo Chernik)

Shamans are awaken practitioners of magic who are traditionally more attuned with nature and practice Shamanic Magic.

Shamans are usually differentiated from mages by relying more on summoning spirits, learning from a totem, and being a charismatic tradition.

However, after SR4, there are now shamans that do not summon spirits and do not follow a totem. But, they are still a charismatic tradition.
