Spiritwalker: Shamanic Journeywork and Empowerment

Aug 08 - 10 Begins in 3 months
with Hank Wesselman

Many of the indigenous peoples perceive that our world is made up of two halves — a world of things seen and a world of things hidden — and they draw no distinction between them. They understand that the two halves present themselves together, mixed into one commonality. They also know that the hidden world is inhabited by a variety of transpersonal forces they call the spirits, and by entering into relationship with them, life can become an extraordinarily enriched adventure.

Over the past 35,000 years, indigenous shamans developed a methodology to expand awareness and explore the many dimensions of reality, generating a rich body of knowledge about the nature and function of the sacred realms. Unfortunately, ever-multiplying overlays of spiritual scripture and esoteric literature have obscured our understanding of these hidden worlds. Today, this confusion is being reversed as the methods of the shaman are being reconsidered by non-tribal Westerners seeking direct experience of the transpersonal realms once again.
