In the West, many of us grow up internalizing our culture’s “original story” of being cast out of paradise and separated from our divine Creator. This bankrupt story tends to permeate our lives whether we are raised in a religious home or not, causing us a great deal of suffering. In this program, you will study ancient healing practices employed by shamans and come to understand that if we wish to heal our wounds on every level, it’s crucial that we discard this myth and discover that we never left the Garden of Eden.
