This is an advanced workshop taught by Beth Beurkens, M.A. One of the classic tasks of the shaman is to journey in order to obtain answers to questions, both at the request of others, and for oneself. In the shamanic search to become persons of knowledge, you will learn, as shamans have from time immemorial, how to converse with plant as well as animal species, how to learn about the use of quartz crystals, and how to seek and receive revelatory knowledge from visionary sources. 13 CEU credits offered upon completion of this workshop. It will be held from Aug. 25 - 26 in Santa Rosa, California. To register for this workshop, go to www.shamanicuniverse.com.
