THE SHAMANS JOURNEY OF INITIATION
Shamans throughout the world, from the Brazilian Amazon to the Himalayan Mountains, undergo initiations where they journey to the Spirit world to receive gifts of power and wisdom. The shaman faces daunting tasks during their initiation, and if they survive the tests, they return with a clear sense of their life calling, and the tools to accomplish their mission.
As we approach the End of Time, we can look to the ancient shamans who foretold these extraordinary times to offer us the tools for navigating through the dangers of our era and for dreaming a new world into being. Shamanic Initiation entails a death of who you have been and a resurrection into an unknown and exhilarating new state of being. Initiation is the most powerful and direct way to heal the wounds inflicted upon us by our ancestors and our collective human history. Once initiated, we recover the passion and life force that we once squandered in anger, lust, or greed, and re-invest it in our well-being, to discover and envision a new life for ourselves, our families, and the Earth.
