Through shamanic journeying, meditation, and sharing, this workshop offers a deep dive into the esoteric wisdom and magical practices of the Kahunas of the South Pacific. Participants will be given a philosophical shamanic framework for successful living, manifestation, and empowerment that has resonance and relevance far beyond the South Pacific and is echoed cross-culturally. The shaman is part healer of the body, part psychotherapist, and part spiritualist, and it is in the combination of these that a shaman steps into their ultimate role as a steward for the earth.
Shamans have their own unique logic, a way of seeing the world that is cultural, metaphysical, and local, but insight into their internal process is often elusive for western seekers. The Kahunas or shamans of Polynesia, however, through the ancient and secret wisdom that they call Huna, provide us with a universal shamanic paradigm that is accessible, practical, and a perfect bridge from indigenous cultural norms to contemporary relevance and understanding. Whether you are new to shamanism or already following a shamanic path, this workshop will deepen your understanding of Earth Wisdom and how to take the ancient ways of being in "right relationship" with nature and Spirit into your ministry, established spiritual practice or chosen healing modality, and your life.
