From ancient times, shamans have worked with the spirits of nature for healing, survival, and knowledge. By learning from the plants and animals, from the rocks and mountains, from the winds and waters, and from the sun, moon, and stars, shamans helped their peoples live in harmony with the universe. In a world now out of balance, the way of the shaman can teach how again to respect nature, our Planet, and its inhabitants at a deep spiritual level. As our ancestors everywhere once knew, our survival depends on the survival of the other species. By working together intensively through shamanic journeys and other spiritual experiences, we will dedicate ourselves to working in both non-ordinary and ordinary reality to restore and maintain a living Planet.
This popular workshop will be held where there are many sacred places of power on the land of an extraordinary new retreat center up on Mount Shasta. Half of the practices in the Spirits of Nature workshop take place outside in the natural world. Our group room at Spiritwalkers Retreat on Mt. Shasta is surrounded by the mountain’s natural beauty with streams, pines, wildflowers and wildlife.
Coffee and tea will be provided on our morning and afternoon breaks.
