One of the classic functions of shamans is to journey into nonordinary reality to obtain answers to difficult questions. In this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to improve their ability to engage in divination journeys for each other and themselves. They will also be taught some important shamanic divination techniques that do not involve journeying. In the shamanic search to become a person "who knows," participants will learn, as shamans have done from time immemorial, how to converse with plant as well as animal species, how to use quartz crystals in divination, and how to obtain revelatory knowledge from visionary sources.
The prerequisite for this workshop is The Way of the Shaman: The Basic Workshop, with the above teacher or other authorized faculty members of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies (www.shamanism.org).
