THE WAY OF THE SHAMAN®: Shamanic Journeying, Power, and Healing

During the Basic experiential workshop, participants are introduced to core shamanism, the universal, near-universal, and common methods of the shaman to enter nonordinary reality for problem solving and healing. Particular emphasis is on the classic shamanic journey, one of the most remarkable visionary methods used by humankind to explore the hidden universe otherwise known mainly through myth and dream. Participants are initiated into shamanic journeying, aided by drumming and other techniques for experiencing the shamanic state of consciousness and for awakening dormant spiritual abilities, including connections with Nature.

Christobel’s students say:
"One of the best things I've ever done. She was a perfect guide. Her knowledge was huge, she was kind and generous, and I trusted her completely."
"Thank you for such a wonderful and life changing weekend!"
