The shamanic elements I incorporate are largely influenced by the work of Arnold Mindell's Dreaming Body Process as well as my own experience with altered states of consciousness in working with plant medicines. Because I emphasize bringing the unconscious to the surface, as well as using states of high energy to expand consciousness, the container we work in resembles that of a Shamanic journey. The way that I facilitate is predominantly in attunement with subtlety and with what is hidden just beneath the surface. In both Shamanism and Tantra, there is a dedication to dropping beneath the mind and opening to the river of life, welcoming whatever arises as a gift to be trusted. As we follow the river of life into unknown territory of revelation and transformation, we partake in the Shamanic Tantric tradition of worshipping the Mystery.
