SHAMANIC JOURNEY with Comma Williams ~ Tuesday, September 6, 9:30-11:30am ~ Livestreaming

Shamanic journey is a tool that has been traditionally used by indigenous shamans for the healing of individuals and communities. Most commonly, shamans use drums and rattles to shift their consciousness into non-ordinary reality, a trance-like state, to communicate with their helping guides and spirits. We know now that anyone can learn to journey! Join Comma Williams for this monthly crossing into non-ordinary reality to gain insight, information, and clarity about your path.
