Shamanism and the Spirits of Nature
An Advanced Weekend Workshop*
with Beth Beurkens, M.A.
Mount Shasta, California
Saturday, October 12, 2019 – 9:30 AM to 5:00 PM
Sunday, October 13, 2019 – 8:45 AM to 4:15 PM
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. Our group room has extraordinary views of Mt. Shasta’s natural beauty and power and also is within walking distance to many small cafes, restaurants and crystal shops.
Scattered throughout the county’s varied landscape are hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails. Spectacular mountain vistas and crystal-clear alpine lakes make Mt. Shasta one of the most idyllic destinations in the state of California.
Tea will be provided on our morning and afternoon breaks.
