Shamanism has always evolved and adapted to the needs of the time. In this week we will explore shamanism as a way of life in our contemporary world.

As a path of direct revelation shamanism is a path of empowerment. We will open up to the guidance of helping spirits in the invisible realm and will experience nature as a powerful ally.
Walking this path brings passion and meaning back into life, supports us in releasing limiting beliefs about ourselves and our collective future, helps us tend our inner gardens and open up to a new and better dream for ourselves and all of life.

We are invited to experience the light that we truly are and to become a healing presence in the world.

The workshop is mostly experiential, based on the work of shamanic teacher Sandra Ingerman, and welcomes beginners as well as participants with previous experience.
