With Warren Frakenberger 

Warren Frankenberger, PhD, RN: I am a nurse scientist and Shamanic Practitioner.  I have been practicing shamanism, sacred drumming and indigenous ceremony for 25 years.  I have had advanced training and shamanic initiations with the Foundation for Shamanic Studies and vision quest with the Lakota in South Dakota.  I am a drum dancer and sweat lodge water pourer in the tradition of Joseph Real, Beautiful Painted Arrow. 

Introduction to Shamanic Journey

The shamanic journey is the foundation for the practice of shamanism.  This class will introduce the participants to the technique of the shamanic journey into non ordinary reality to meet our compassionate helping spirits.  We will use the drum to guide us to the lower world where we will meet our power animal and begin a very sacred relationship that can help us in all aspects of our lives.

 As a participant you will learn about the cosmology and the shamanic view of the world.  Discussion about shamanism and shamanism in the cultural context and modern-day shamanism, as well as participating in a ceremony to discover your power animal.
