Frequently Asked Questions

Journeying is the term used to explain how shamans access the insight and counsel they receive from the spirit world. It is a visit, so to speak, to what is called non-ordinary reality, the psychic space in which spirit entities can be communicated with and sought for guidance. During a shamanic journey, I will experience certain things, see images and hear messages. Sometimes I will just sense or intuit the answer to a question. I interpret these things both literally and metaphorically, as you might do in dream analysis. I think the basic construct of the journey is something you can relate to in your own life. It is like going on an errand almost—you have a mission, you go and get what you need and return. 

When you lose touch with inner stillness, you lose touch with yourself. When you lose touch with yourself, you lose yourself in the world.
