My first introduction to shamanic journeying was with Betsy Bergstrom at the Theosophical Society many years ago. Since then my “journeywork” and consciousness-expanding explorations have been in the realm of shamanism, tantric yogic practices, breathwork, and work with entheogens. And I’d put meditation into this category, as well!
I’ve walked a long and winding path, but my deepest roots are in core shamanism, vegetalismo work, yoga, and meditation. Zen Buddhism, Christian mysticism, Tantric Yoga, Hinduism, and Taoism are my most resonant spiritual frameworks, although it’s really all speaking to the same thing. Influential teachers include Thomas Hubl, Jeannie Zandi, Adyashanti, Sandra Ingerman, and Dr. Douglas Brooks.
I consider daily life my spiritual practice, but more formal practices include meditation, yoga (asana/chanting/deity-work), breathwork, and shamanic-style practices and rituals.
I was fortunate to cross paths with Kimberly Morton :)
