The shaman dances between the infinite and the ordinary, constantly juggling the apparent paradox of the One and the relative world. To do this work effectively requires an openness on the part of the ego to Death & Dismemberment. It requires room for the awareness of Soul to arise and permeate our experience, stirring others to wake as well. But the process can be rough on the ego, and without a clear context, can lead to what is now called "spiritual crisis." This workshop addresses this awakening state and offers strategies and tactics for bringing it on - and surviving it.
