New Life Skills
“Life is a rush into the unknown. You can duck down and hope nothing hits you, or stand up tall as you can, show it your teeth and say “Dish it up baby, and don't be stingy with the jalapenos.”

Mastering the Art of the Shamanic Journey
Beyond the technique of the shamanic journeying lie three levels of mastery. Most people, no matter how many years they journey, will barely tap the healing and transformational power of this tool in a lifetime. However, mastery is accessible to those who seek it. The first level begins with learning to craft your questions, the second with learning to interpret your own symbolic language, and the third with learning how to clarify the actions to take and to take them.
Part I. Crafting the Magical Question
The art of crafting questions.
The world of spirit rewards cleverness and courage in equal parts. Clarity comes not only from asking the right questions, but asking them in the right way. There is an art to asking questions. Timing, focus, perspective, and trust all come together in the art of crafting the magical question that, like a key, opens the door to Vision.
Part II. Interpreting Your Symbolic Language
The art of interpreting messages from spirit.
The world of spirit speaks to each of us through our own unique symbolic language. Learning to accurately interpret that language is essential to understanding your journeys. This art is based entirely on how your see yourself in the Universe and the true nature of your soul.
Part III. Putting the Message into Action
The art of action, discipline of manifestation, and power of "just do it."
Clever questions and accurate interpretations will not change your life. You must act. Journeys help to clarify and guide us in what needs to change and in the actions necessary to create that change in the real world. Then we are required to act. This is the final aspect of mastering the art of the shamanic and developing the full potential of your power and purpose in the world.
