Ancient Wisdom – Modern Medicine
Over tens of thousands of years our ancient ancestors all around the Earth discovered how to maximize human abilities of mind and spirit for healing and problem solving. These archaic techniques of ecstasy were created through the shamanic journey into the mystical realms of the imagination and beyond. The shaman journeys into non ordinary reality to contact spirit guides, power animals and allies to help heal people suffering from Soul Loss, Intrusions, Power Loss and act as a guide for the dying. These ancient methods for healing have influenced modern medicine for the body, mind and soul in ways that is often not acknowledged by western science. In this presentation we will explore how Shamanism plays a major part in Jungian and Transpersonal Psychology, Holotropic Breathwork, Imagery for Healing, Spiritual Emergence/Emergency, Eco Psychology and working with Death and Dying.
