Stuart Dole will present a modern scientific perspective on shamanism - practical techniques for working in the spirit worlds. He will present background on what shamanism is (and isn't), and how it fits into both world-wide indigenous cultures as well as modern western life. He will lead the group in an experiential exercise - the shamanic journey. Hopefully there will be ample time for questions and discussion. Please feel free to bring a drum or rattle if you have one. You may want to bring writing material to journal your experiences and a blanket or pad to lie on.
