The Shaman’s Heart: An Awakening of Compassion, Healing and Vision
Oscar Miro-Quesada and Byron Metcalf
October 11–13, 2013
Two seasoned navigators of shamanic realms artfully orchestrate this heartfelt initiation into the sacred dimensions of life. Merging ancient and contemporary healing ceremonies and rhythmic techniques, don Oscar and Byron shall masterfully guide participants in a journey of encounter with the inner and outer landscapes of their soul. Deep journey explorations and integrative teachings will focus on: “The Journey Within”, “As Within, So Without”, “Life as Ceremony”, “The Ascent”, “A Sacred Hoop”, and more.
