Patrons of the Traveling Shamans and the Shamans Camp are hosting traveling shaman Winter Ross on the weekend of August 25th and this is your chance to meet this amazing woman.
Winter Ross works in the medium of Imagination. She is convinced that the creative mind has the power to heal both individuals and the world. This workshop is designed for writers, artists, shamanic practitioners and anyone interested in these realms. Winter shares the technique of the classic drum journey and other shamanic experiences, explaining how this ancient cosmology can help you access deeper levels of creativity and the unconscious. You will experience a personal journey and begin to apply it to your own medium. Please bring your chosen art or writing supplies to this class.
