Date & Time
Shamanic healing is making an astonishing comeback all over the modern technology-driven and consumerist world. Millions of people have felt called to integrate both ancient and modern healing systems into a new model of healthcare. But what makes shamanic healing so powerful and why have indigenous healers kept it alive for thousands of years?
Join us for an illuminating and inspiring evening as internationally recognized shamanic healer and practitioner, Itzhak Berry, explores these and other soul-searching questions from his new book Shamanic Healing: Traditional Medicine for the Modern World.
Revealing his personal journey and stories from his more than 20 years as a shamanic healer, Itzhak explains who a shaman is and how he or she works, demystifying and destigmatizing the shamanic healing worldview. He shares shamanic wisdom from two of his teachers: a Yachak from Ecuador and a well-known Brazilian Pagé. In his book, he details indigenous medicine tools and soul healing techniques that you can practice with your own clients or in your own personal healing, including diagnosis and energy cleansing with plants, stones, fire, rum, eggs, flower essences, and sound. By sharing these healing methods, Beery reveals the importance of shamanic practices in resolving our 21st-century emotional and physical problems and their importance to the future of humanity and the planet.
