Shamanism is the oldest spiritual practice— anthropologists have found cross cultural evidence of the first shamans from over 40,000 years ago. Today, shamanic journeying suits the needs of our modern life; it is the path of direct revelation, and requires no outside authority or ideology. Shamanism gives us the tools to enter the spirit world and understand our place in the Universe so that we can reconnect to our own power.
The shamanic journey is the art of using drum and rattle rhythms with intention to enter into altered brain states to access the spiritual dimension of life. There, one can meet and speak to spirit animals, plant totems, ancestors, and even pets who have passed on.
