Butterflies undergo dramatic change in their lifetime. Using their journey as a model for our own, Shaman Durek, a 6th generation shaman, takes us through the three stages of transformation—from caterpillar to cocoon to butterfly—so we can become the spiritual leaders we are meant to be and that the world desperately needs.
We start our journey as the caterpillar, realizing that even while we don’t see the big picture, we nonetheless gather the nourishment we need to get ourselves into the cocoon. Once in the cocoon, we learn shamanic techniques to take the information we’ve gathered and transform it, letting go of what we no longer need so we can recognize and embrace our inner power. We then explore how to use that power to break out like the butterfly and bring our unique presence and spiritual leadership to the world.
Anyone looking for deep and lasting metamorphosis is welcome.
