Shamanism and the Erotic: Liberating Our Capacity for True Intimacy With the Spirit World

Broadcast on September 14, 2022
With Langston Kahn
Hosted by Dr. Marie Mbouni

The true power of animism and shamanism arises from our relationships. However, in these times when so much has been confined to digital screens, it’s easy to feel cut off from intimacy with the erotic conversation life is always inviting us into. In this session, Langston Kahn will explore approaches to cultivating an intimate relationship with ourselves, our ancestors, our helping spirits, and the land where we live to pierce stagnation and find forward movement again.

In this session, you’ll discover:

  • How you can bring intimacy and a new understanding of the erotic into your spiritual practice to reclaim your power
  • That tending to your five primary wisdom bodies unlocks your true longing and ability to release addictive behavior 
  • A meditation to connect with inner guides that hold the blueprint for nourishing connection with self and others
