SHAMANISM IN DAILY AND PROFESSIONAL LIFE
In tribal shamanic cultures the shaman, in addition to his or her primary soul work, such as healing, spiritual guidance or working with the dead and dying, often worked shamanically in the mainstream of society, helping the tribe in its day to day chores. Today the mainstream of society is in large part big and small businesses, institutions, governments, and private practices. It comprises research, production, commerce, finances, artistic projects, communication, education, family work, health services and other activities. In this workshop, participants will explore working with spirits in one’s daily and professional life, for the purpose of seeking greater harmony, reconsecrating one’s life, enhanced understanding and creativity, and guidance in addressing issues and resolving problems. Participants will learn new shamanic practices that are adapted for use in the work environment typical of our modern society. This workshop is designed for those individuals who are committed to regular shamanic practices and to integrating shamanism in their lives. The focus of the workshop is on expanding and deepening interactions with spirits, both ones’ own tutelary spirits as well as other spirits. Participants need to have good shamanic journeying skills, and a strong connection with power animals and spirit teachers.
