Learn how to shamanic journey (Native American spirituality) in a one-day workshop facilitated by Shaman Elizabeth Herrera.
In this workshop, you will:
• Discover your power animal
• Explore the three spirit realms
• Meet your spirit guide
Here is a brief overview of shamanic journeying:
Shamanism is the oldest known spiritual practice in the world and is still practiced by indigenous people on every continent today, including Native Americans. While there are many different rituals, one commonality is that the shaman acts as a catalyst between this world and the spirit realm.
During a shamanic journey, a shaman/practitioner uses a visionary process to travel to the spirit realm to request healings, receive divine messages, help guide lost souls home (psychopomp) and commune with nature/universe.
In the spirit realm, a shaman interacts with spirit guides, ancestors, angels, and enlightened beings.
Power animals act as protectors and guides for the shaman, and can be a part of the shaman’s journeys for many lifetimes or brief periods during which their archetype power is needed.
The spirit realm has three “worlds”: the lower, middle and upper. None of the realms are better than the others; they simply offer different experiences that are appropriate for different circumstances.
Dress comfortably. Bring your own blanket, mat and pillow. Optional: Something to cover your eyes, such as a scarf or bandana and/or a handheld drum or rattle.

Her great-grandfather, who was Apache, raised her father. She was fortunate to have known her great-grandfather, who smuggled sugar and flour from Mexico into Texas, exchanged gunfire with Texas Rangers, and crossed paths with Pancho Villa.
Always drawn to the spiritual side of life, Elizabeth began her shamanic path in Michigan where she learned to shamanic journey with a certified Sandra Ingerman instructor. Elizabeth continued her studies through the Foundation for Shamanic Studies for shamanic journeying, soul retrieval, and death and dying (psychopomp), but her major source of learning has been from her spirit guides, who offer limitless guidance and lessons on living a more spiritual life.
She combines her shamanic practice with the teachings of A Course in Miracles (ACIM). These teachings offer guidance on learning to let the Divine lead the way and the importance of forgiveness.
