The primary goal in all shamanic practice is to bring the affairs of humans into balance with the affairs of nature. When human activity creates imbalances in the natural world, there is work to be done to correct these imbalances. This class offers you practices for more deeply aligning yourself with the forces of nature and offers tools to help restore balance to the places in nature that have been negatively affected by human activity. Special focus will be on understanding effective ways of working non-locally with guidance, working with the five elements of water, air, fire, earth and space, understanding the role of weather spirits, and the role of ritual and ceremony in creating effective strategies for change. After attending this class, you will be able to work with advanced shamanic practices to positively affect issues such as climate change, water and soil pollution, deforestation, and chemical contamination.
