Shamanic Paths to Inner Experience (Download)


- +

Traditional shamanic cultures have long held an understanding of nature, spirit, and non-ordinary realms of being that contemporary cultures have lost touch with in the larger mainstream of experience. In this fascinating talk, Isa Gucciardi explores several ways of seeking guidance within the world of nature and the unseen worlds found in shamanic Earth-based wisdom traditions and considers the relevance these practices might have for us today. Some of these practices have already made their way into mainstream culture like vision quests, the shamanic journey, dream interpretation, and working with plant medicine. She discusses these as well as some of the more esoteric practices of traditional cultures such as visionary experience and mediumship. Isa is the author of three books, creator of the therapeutic model Depth Hypnosis, and the Founding Director of the Foundation of the Sacred Stream. Run time is 58:08.
