Listen: The Doorway Between the Worlds: Medium and Oracle Traditions in Shamanic and Buddhist Traditions
Shamanism is a form of spiritual practice based in earth-wisdom traditions whose practices rely heavily on the practitioner’s capacity to form oracle relationships with the unseen powers of nature. The Mahayana Buddhist tradition also contains oracle systems that have guided the course of the tradition and have even helped with the establishment of new schools of thought. In this talk presented by East West Bookshop, Isa Gucciardi describes the experience of the altered state of awareness that is common to both Shamanic and Buddhist oracle traditions.
Dr. Isa Gucciardi holds degrees and certificates in transpersonal psychology, cultural and linguistic anthropology, comparative religion, hypnotherapy, and transformational healing. Isa is the creator of Depth Hypnosis, a spiritual counseling model which works with altered states of consciousness such as meditation, the shamanic journey, the hypnotic state and dreams to help clients heal a wide variety of imbalances.
She is also the Founding Director of the Foundation of the Sacred Stream, a school for consciousness studies in Berkeley, CA, where she offers trainings in Depth Hypnosis, Applied Shamanism, Buddhist Psychology Studies, Integrated Energy Medicine and more. She maintains an active Depth Hypnosis practice in San Francisco.
