Gain greater skill in entering meditative consciousness through learning time-proven methods of quieting your mind and body, observing your intuitive impressions so you can hear inner messages more clearly. We will utilize self-expressive arts – writing, drawing, singing, dancing – as meditational and energy work practices. Learn how to interpret the intuitive information you receive, discovering your preferred perceptual mode (seeing, hearing, or feeling) for accessing intuitive information. No prerequisite. Please have a rattle, and a pen and notebook. Required reading: The Open Mind by Dawna Markova. Cost: $150 (cost includes required book).This is one of three seminars in Level 1 of Life Force Arts Shamanic training, a contemporary form of shamanic practice. The three seminars in Level 1 are: Energetic Protection, Shamanic Journeying, and Sensing Energy. You can start Level 1 with any of the three seminars. No prerequisites.
