TREE OF LIFE - SHAMANIC JOURNEY
A shamanistic journey with the theme Tree of Life - World Tree. We find our place between the earth and the sky, by the big oak. This shamanic journey brings rootedness, presence, stability, and certainty to our life paths. The Tree of Life is the place of alchemy and initiation of our inner life, where transcendence from time and place can experientially bring our inner "evergreen" to life.
SUN AND MOON
This is a meditative journey through the suns and moons of the three shamanic worlds. The Sun and the Moon form the two most important cosmic polarities of human life.

They remind about the cycles of light and shadow both in the shamanic soul travels as in human life.
