Shamanism and Subtle Activism

Broadcast on September 08, 2015
With Sandra Ingerman

There is important action we have to take to create positive change on the planet. How can shamanic practices be applied in a modern context to help bring our world into balance? Can shamanic practices be used to support positive change not only in individuals but also in cities and nations--or even the whole planet? And how might shamanic practices help us to work for change in our world from a place of inner harmony and strength, rather than despair and overwhelm? In this one hour presentation, Sandra Ingerman will share with us her experience of applying shamanic practices to collective healing and how the approach of shamanism can empower the work we do on behalf of the planet and all of life.
