What is Shaman’s Heart?

The Shaman’s Heart is a revolutionary new program for developing one’s full capacity for soul-based and heart-centered living.

The program is a unique and practical integration of shamanic practice, transpersonal psychology, ancient wisdom teachings, and various contemporary methods of spiritual growth and personal transformation.

This highly experiential retreat is specifically oriented toward creating the capacity to navigate these challenging times and complex world in a soul-based and heart-centered manner.

Using a combination of music and sound, meditation, personal intention, ritual, HoloShamanic Journey work, and integrative processing, we will explore and experience the path of authentic power, purpose and presence.

Shamanic Practitioner and Teacher, Byron Metcalf

“My work with Byron has opened both my soul and my intellect. What I feel most strongly is the joy of waking up into all aspects of myself. The path that Byron walks, and works, and invites us to re-member is Wholeness – our birthright as human beings.”
