Are you ready to be in your Spirit Flow?
Shamanism embraces the interconnectedness of all things: mother earth, stars, trees, animals, and wind. Shamanism is the practice of direct revelation that involves accessing knowledge directly from Spirit. In this way each person becomes their own spiritual authority.
The time we spend on earth is fleeting. Some of the things we choose to do give our life meaning and joy, while others drain us of vital life force.
Shamanic work will grow your connection with the natural world and the web of light that connects everything. This connection empowers people to take actions, which imbue their limited time on earth with meaning. It leads to consistent states of hope and joy. All of life is interconnected, and the conscious decisions you make to live a purposeful life ripple throughout the web of life.
