Thursday, Sept. 20, 2018

Thomas Memorial Library
Cape Elizabeth, ME

Shamanism is a thousands year old wisdom practice, older than most religions, that has seen a strong resurgence in modern day life.

Hear from Martha Williams, Cape Elizabeth resident, shamanic practitioner and yoga teacher about the benefits of shamanic healing and ways it has helped clients she has worked with.

Learn how shamanic practices can be integrated into day to day life, offering deeper connection to the natural and spirit worlds and to self.

You’ll engage in the shamanic ritual of calling in the directions to create sacred space and receive healing energy (optional) shared during a guided meditation. There will time for discussion, questions and answers.

This talk is free and open to all.
