Shamanic Healing is a practice drawing on ancient knowledge from sacred traditions around the world. Drawing on over 40 years of experience in the Shamanic Tradition, Maestro Manuel Rufino will share wisdom teachings on Shamanic Healing. Following this talk, Dream Seed will lead a Shamanic Sound Journey meditation using sacred ceremonial music. This is a 3-hour event.
Teachings will include how to smudge and use healing herbs, healing with the four elements (water, earth fire and air), the healing sounds of the four elements, how to protect yourself while doing healing work on others, how to protect yourself from witchcraft, spells and enchantments and the best ways to protect healers and patients.
In Dream Seed, Shamanic chanting, mantras, overtone singing, Native American songs, indigenous music, didgeridoos, crystal singing bowls, bells, gongs, harmoniums, tuning forks, and other overtone-emitting instruments are used to create an environment conducive to deep relaxation and inward investigation. Participants are led through guided meditations and sound-healing practices designed to harmonize body, mind, and spirit. You will have an opportunity to set a clear intention, recharge your energy, and explore the realm beyond the physical.
