You will be introduced to 4 unique shamans that come from different parts of the Himalayan mountains. Each Himalayan shaman will provide group, and private lessons that are specific to their branch of shamanism. You can learn shamanic energy healing from one shaman, how to go on a shamanic journey from another, and how to cut the lines of fate from a different shaman.
Each shaman gives a demonstration and instructions on how to preform each healing technique, then monitors your spiritual health as you practice the technique. You will learn about shamanism, and how to become a shaman at a comfortable location above the Katmandu valley with all the western amenities, such as hot water showers, flush toilets, simple sleeping arrangements, and beautiful views.
