We are no longer taking online registrations for this workshop.

We live in a dream and wake up only to find ourselves in another dream. The shaman learns to dream with his eyes open, to conjure the world into being each day. This is the practice of shamanic ecstasy. And it is a practice you can learn to do yourself.

The shaman believes that if you do not envision your world into being each day, you remain caught in a nightmare of an unwanted past, trapped in the genetic history of your family of origin and in the psychological drama of your parents. The shaman also believes that you can free yourself from this unhealthy legacy.

In this workshop on the techniques of shamanic ecstasy—using lecture, inquiry, and safely guided shamanic journeys—Villoldo teaches you shamanic methods for recovering parts of your soul that have been lost to childhood trauma or lifelong stress. Discover how befriending these abandoned parts of your soul, what Jung called the shadow, can restore your physical and emotional health.

This workshop is also useful for helping professionals who want to use skills they learn with their clients.
