From a meditation retreat to a law of attraction retreat, people around the world are finding the benefits of creating sacred space to learn and heal away from their busy lives. For those interested in shamanism and journeying, learning more about healing rituals can bring about great change to their lives, empowering them to find the right path, and become truly happy living as their authentic selves.
So, what is a shamanic journey and how can it benefit you?
What Is a Shamanic Journey?
Shamanic journeying refers to the process (or ‘journey’) one goes through if entering a trance-like state when connecting with the spiritual world. Practitioners learn various techniques and disciplines to achieve an altered state of consciousness, using their journeying time to seek guidance. They can use the energies in the world around us to heal where there are imbalances present. The practitioner often uses the sound of a drumbeat, building a rhythm to help them while using both meditation and visualization to evoke a powerful experience. Once they’ve returned to a normal state, those who have been on a shamanic journey can learn from their experience and benefit from this personal healing ritual and the deeper insight gained into their true self. This includes addressing changes required in the mind, body, and spirit.

The ability to go on a shamanic journey rests inside every individual, but finding guidance is one of the best ways to get started while learning more about this ancient art.
