SHAMANIC JOURNEY with Comma Williams ~ Tuesday, February 7, 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.
