One of the most distinctive elements of shamanic practice is learning to enter into direct connection with guides, totem spirits, ancestors, and one’s own intuition through shifting out of ordinary consciousness into an expanded state of awareness, often called trance state.  Rhythmic drumming or rattling are often used to facilitate the shift into trance, and anyone can learn to safely and effectively journey as a tool for spiritual growth.  Appropriate for both those new to exploring shamanism, as well as for those with experience, this gently guided session provides the opportunity for participants to enter into the trance state with intention; access guidance, protection, knowledge, and healing energy directly; and bring the gifts of the journey back into daily life to continue guiding them on their spiritual journey.
