Four fulfilled days where the forces of East, South, West and North are intertwined. Three nights filled with mistycal experiences. To honor Mother Earth, her power and support. In honor of her sacred union with Heaven, from which, we were created. In honor of our ancestors and their heritage. We celebrate in the prayer of dance and song for our Divine future.
WHY SHAMANISM ?
From the steppes of the Himalaya to the jungles of Guatemala, shamanism is a ritual belief system that has been practiced for over 27,000 years. Shamanism is an ancient healing tradition and a way of life. Its teaching focus on our connection to nature and all of creation.
Since ancient times shamanic rituals have served to unite us with Mother Nature, Mother Earth and energies of healing, enlightening and spiritual nature.
The time has come to return to our Core, our Quintessence. The Shamanic path is powerful support to get to know oneSelf. Which is crucial to develop the bond with Mother Earth and all that is.
