The Re-Emergence of the Shaman
Long before the rise of our state level societies, our indigenous ancestors discovered powerful methods for mastering the capabilities of the human body-mind-spirit complex. As we approach the year 2012, a time prophesied by many indigenous cultures as the end of our current cycle, there is a resurgence of interest in the ancient, time tested ways of the shaman. Shamanic methods for entering mystical states of consciousness to heal and to solve problems have become the precursors to contemporary methods of guided imagery and visualization therapies. For the traditional shaman, the overarching goal of such states was increased spiritual power, and in this evening talk, you will be provided with a method for finding a personal place in the archetypal world of dreams where we can reconnect with our inner sources of wisdom and healing to ultimately find our path to that power.
