Shamanism Summit 2020
Program & Replays
Currently, the world is beset by a cascade of crises that seem impossible to solve. Yet, the situation can also be seen as what the ancient Greeks called a kairos period, a betwixt and between time in which the course of history changes and all of reality seems to be altered. Although radically disorienting, such moments can be transformative, even revelatory as hidden potentials of life become more visible.
In This Session:
- During a kairos time things become both impossible and more possible at the same time as life transforms on many levels
- The medicines needed for healing the chaos and conflicts in the outer world can only be found in the depths of the individual soul
- Kairos can be seen as “awakened time,” moments in which we can awaken to a greater sense of the world and our place in it
