Gerry Starnes
Spirituality > Shamanism
Recorded: Aug 03, 2015 at 09:00 pm EST
Shamanism is not a religion, nor is it a specific set of practices. It is a way of being in the world based on tens of thousands of years of human experience. All healing has its roots in shamanic practice, as does all spirituality and religion have its roots in the shamanic experience. Contemporary shamanism is an approach to living that integrates established shamanic concepts and practices into everyday life. It is a holistic approach to living that powerfully recombines the ordinary and the spiritual-the contemporary and the ancient. This presentation and dialog addresses these issues and more: ~ What is a shaman? ~ What are eight common characteristics of shamanism? ~ What are Power Animals? ~ What is a shamanic journey? ~ What is soul retrieval and curse healing? ~ How can shamanic practices make my life more meaningful and fulfilling?
