Shamanism is a thousands year old wisdom practice, older than most religions, that has had a strong resurgence in modern day life as many seek a deeper connection to the natural and spirit world and to self. In this talk, Cape Elizabeth resident Martha Williams, shamanic practitioner and yoga teacher, will talk about the benefits of shamanic healing and ways it has helped clients she has worked with. And we’ll learn more about how shamanic practices can be integrated into day-to-day life.
During this talk, Martha will lead us through an optional guided meditation exercise engaging in the shamanic ritual of calling in the directions to create sacred space and receive healing energy.
And, of course, there will time for discussion, questions, and answers.
We hope you’ll join us to learn more about this ancient practice.
