The first meditators in history were the shamans, whose practices for contemplation and connecting with the divine are echoed in virtually every spiritual tradition today. On “Shamanic Meditations”, Sandra Ingerman invites you to return to the source of human spirituality—and experience for yourself the enduring power of these ancient practices for healing, guidance, and awakening. With seven guided meditations—called “journeys” in the shamanic tradition—from a renowned author and teacher, this two-hour program features:
- An overview of shamanic principles—understanding journeys, the three spiritual realms, and your helping guides
- Encountering your Power Animals—companion spirits from the Lower World that offer healing, protection, and support
- Meeting your Upper World Teacher—a spirit in human form who provides insights and higher wisdom
- The shamanic initiation into oneness, connecting to nature through the Middle World, learning to see through “spirit eyes,” and more
As Sandra Ingerman explains, the surging interest in shamanism in the West arises from the personal, intimate relationship with spirit that these practices offer. “An increasing number of people feel a deep need to connect directly to the web of life,” she explains. With “Shamanic Meditations”, listeners now have a complete guided program for beginning their own exploration of the shamanic path—and tapping into the spiritual field of awareness that unites all living beings.
