All the spirits that have gone before us are now part of the universe and when asked, are willing to offer help. These spirits may take the form of a power animal or a teacher. They may affect miracles in our lives; most particularly they help us recover from spirit losses. Most of us will have suffered spirit loss, which results from abuse, neglect, illness, etc., and manifests as decreased pizzazz in our lives.
In shamanic communities, the shaman’s job is to bring back the patient’s lost spirit. We can all help restore our own spirits by journeying to find our power animal.
Working individually, in pairs, and as a group, participants in this workshop will journey to find their power animals, and will explore many facets of shamanism.
