<<If a man is hungry, do not give him fish, teach him how to fish>>. As a child, I was hearing and seeing things that others did not. Growing up, I attached myself to the world vision of conventional science and closed the doors to the invisible world. Until few years ago, in Nepal, receiving a healing from a local shaman, I unexpectedly spent three hours in a transe state. Listening to the shaman advices, I since explore shamanic realms, medicine and healing methods. 12 years experience in medical imaging brought to my attention the benefits and limitations of western medicine. I propose you to build the bridge between western science and shamanic, knowledges. Several types of meditation and yoga helped me a lot on this path and I would love to share those life changing tools with you.
