Shamans of the Himalayas Tour
Shamans of the Himalayas is a multi-faceted tour that ventures into heart and soul of shamanistic healing practices in Nepal. In addition, participants of this tour will be guided through historic, and religious sites within Kathmandu and Pokhara. The aim of this tour is to enhance the participants understanding of shamanic healing practices, including healing techniques, mantras, mandalas, deities and spirits, soul retrieval, shamanic drumming, and how to become a shaman.
This is a one of a kind spiritual retreat exclusive to members of Maestra Paloma Cervantes’ Institute of Shamanism and Curanderismo. The Shamans of the Himalayas Tour is valued at $3,200, but in conjunction with the Institute of Shamanism and Curanderism, it is offered to students of Maestra Paloma Cervantes for 2,750.
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.
