In this workshop, we will talk about the three shamanic non-ordinary worlds, the function of each, the reason for traveling to a particular world and how to get there. You will also have the opportunity to journey to the Lower World where you will experience what it is like to leave your physical body by entering the Shamanic State of Consciousness (SSC). Please bring something to lie on, pillows and blanket for comfort and a scarf or bandana to cover your eyes.
