Understanding and celbrating La Muerte, removing the fear of death, learning how to die consciously will change your life by processing the bigest existential fear of death.

Exploring Shamanic Journeying, 5th November 2017 10.30am – 16.30pm, 13 Prince Edward Rd, Hackney Wick, LONDON, E9 5LX, with Miguel de Silva. Shamans are often described as people who stand with one foot in our ordinary reality and one foot in the spiritual world. Shamans explore the connection between ordinary reality and non-ordinary reality by travelling through portals leading from the physical to the spirit world. They are able to move at will between those two worlds. Shamanic journeying is a way of finding answers, healing, information, wisdom and knowledge for others as well as assisting in personal healing and development. During the journey the shaman encounters spirits who may be ancestors, spirit guides, teacher spirits, and power animals. The shaman is also able to journey to the 3 worlds of the shamanic cosmology; the lower, middle, and upper worlds. You will be taught the basics of shamanic journeying, how to journey to the lower and upper worlds, retrieve a power animal, journey to yourself, and journey to someone else. There is a limit of 15 places available. The investment for this workshop is £60 per person. A (non-refundable) deposit of £25 is requested to secure your place which needs to be received by Monday 23rd October. For more details please click on link or contact Miguel via email mysticus.22@gmail.com or call 07749325531.
