The Power of Shamanism to Heal Emotional and Physical Illness

November 04 - November 05, 2020

Sandra Ingerman

Shamanism is the most ancient universal spiritual practice known to humankind. Many anthropologists believe that the practice dates back over 100,000 years. The word “shaman” comes from the Tungus tribe in Siberia and it means spiritual healer, or one who sees in the dark, one who knows. Shamanism has been practiced in Siberia, Asia, Europe, Africa, Australia, Greenland, and native North and South America.A shaman is a man or woman who uses the ability to see “with the strong eye” or “with the heart” to travel into hidden realms. The shaman interacts directly with helping spirits to address the spiritual aspect of illness and perform soul retrievals, retrieve lost power, as well as remove spiritual blockages. The shaman also divines information for the community. Shamans have and still act as healers, doctors, priests and priestesses, psychotherapists, mystics, and storytellers. It is the shaman’s role in the community to keep harmony and balance between humankind and the forces of nature.In this fast paced workshop Sandra will summarize the power of this ancient practice and how it is being used today to treat physical and emotional illness as well as heal planetary issues especially around pollution and climate change.She will end by leading us in a ceremony she calls transfiguration which has far reaching power to heal all you, all of life, and the planet itself.
