In this class, you will have the opportunity through the use of the imagination to journey to the Shamanic place known as “non-ordinary reality” and learn about your power animal(s). According to Native American and Shamanic belief, we all have a “power animal” similar in some respects to the Judeo-Christian belief in guardian angels. Shamanic tools of drumming and other sounds assist in the journey. Dress comfortably and bring a drum or rattle, if you have one, and a pillow and 2 blankets. Enjoy drumming, singing, and “exercising” your power animal as we share knowledge and experiences from the Shamanic tradition. Participate in the discovery of peace and joy that result from singing, dancing, and learning more about these and other Shamanic healing techniques for oneself and others.
