Journeying is about connecting to your deeper and older wise self and finding allies or helper spirits that often take on archetypal figures and patterns. These helper spirits often have personal messages that are significant to that individuals journey through life. The helper spirits can also be sign posts for specific directions that one can choose on their life path.

THE PATH OF THE SHAMAN- "walking in beauty"
(offered to a committed group willing to take the plunge into self awareness and all it's processes)
Shamanism is the oldest spiritual practice known to man and dates back 30-40,000 years. Indigenous tribes all over the world had someone in their community who could contact and work with the unseen world, by altering their state of consciousness, and work with compassionate and helping spirits to help individuals or the tribe, as well as themselves. The practice of Shamanism is a living viable method to mend our fragmented spirits, obtain consistent and reliable answers and guidance, and live our lives in a conscious and powerful way.
