See, that's one of those cases where I want the "most religions are mixed" to come to the fore.
I don't think you need a Shaman, just a spirit-talker, just like a Godi doesn't have to be a priest.
And the "otherworld talker" could handle both worlds (Assuming you believe in the 3 world distinction).
The Orlanthi keep them pretty separate, though.
