Shamanism--the mystical path of direct experience with the sentient universe--is the worlds' oldest form of communion with Source and is based on a deep, living relation to Nature and inner pathway seer skills. The modern day seer uses archetypal pathways of the soul adapted for today's world. A new shamanism right for today's times is being created by peoples from modern cultures. These direct experiences of expanded reality shift perceptions and create new neural pathways. New insights flow in that support conscious re-creation of your life in a frequency more aligned with your soul. Each of us has the ability to develop these skills, once the primary domain of the designated "Medicine Man/Woman".
