Kate will lead a gentle yoga practice and Josh will explain the basic principles of shamanism. Combined, the practices can lead to a great flow of truth, wisdom, and allow us to connect to ourselves on a much deeper level. After the yoga practice, Josh will facilitate participants to go on a shamanic journey, a willful shift in consciousness that we will explore through drumming. This is an ancient tool to connect with the spirit world, where we can interact with guides, receive wisdom, guidance, and answers to questions we may have. The team will offer a blindfold to each participant prior to the journey. You will meet with a spirit guide during the journey. The union of practices will close and everyone is encouraged to share their experiences if they so choose. The intention of combining practices will be to support each participant in connecting with their own personal experience, healing abilities, and spiritual growth. Please bring a notebook and pen.
