Liberating the Shamanic Body

Broadcast on July 22, 2021
With Langston Kahn
Hosted by Michael Stone

In many contemporary approaches to shamanism, the soul is centered at the expense of the body, rather than seeing the body as the physical manifestation of the soul. When we engage shamanism as a way to escape the body, our relationship with the invisible world gets interpreted through our trauma and becomes divorced from our current reality. In this conversation, Langston Kahn will share how we can liberate the wisdom of our body to open to a more fulfilling and effective relationship with Spirit.

In This Session:

  • Learn how racist and religious bias in Mircea Eliade's work "Shamanism: Archaic Techniques of Ecstasy" still creates misconceptions in contemporary shamanism
  • Discover the three structures of your body needed to escape the "shamanic playground" and move into the wilds of the invisible world
  • Explore how to engage trauma as a map back to the power waiting for us in our bodies
