Learning Shamanism for Modern Day Performers (and a Powerful Guided Meditation)
When you learn ancient shamanic powers as a modern day performer, your performances will gain incredible depth and creative power. You will be able to lead your audiences on an entrancing experience, one that mimics the healing underworld journeys of ancient shamans.
Is learning shamanism only for indigenous peoples? No, because, in truth, all humans come from shamanic roots. We're all indigenous to planet earth, and so we are all hardwired to benefit from shamanic practices.
In this video, you will learn the connection of modern artistic performances to shamanism, about the two initiations required to become a shaman, and will be led on a powerful guided meditation that will show you your unique shamanic powers. This video will benefit artistic performers of all kinds, including musicians, actors, dancers, circus performers, performance artists, and more.
