What is shamanism?

Shamanism is the world’s oldest system of spiritual healing and divination, practiced by indigenous peoples all over the world. The shaman makes ecstatic flights into the world of the spirits to obtain information and bring back healing. Shamanism is an effective way to expand your awareness and access spiritual guidance directly for yourself.

More background on shamanism is available here (http://www.bodyspiritawareness.com/shamanism101.html).

What will I learn?

What shamanism is and how it works, including an overview of the spirit worlds
How you can travel safely to the worlds of the spirits, using gentle drumming Who your power animals and spirit teachers are – and how to work with them How to expand your consciousness and obtain direct spiritual guidance How to increase power, creativity, and humor in your life – and how to help your friends do the same
We will use the traditional sounds of repetitive drumming to facilitate the journeys. There will be ample time for background discussion, practical instruction, journey exercises, and questions.

Note that this workshop (or equivalent experience) is required for many of the other workshops that we teach.
