Shamanism and the Sacred Seeker
with Jennifer Lynn Jacoby

Shamanism is a mystical, earth-centered tradition. Its ancient practices celebrate the spiraling rhythms of nature, nourish the soul, and cultivate direct experience of the Divine. Recognizing the interplay of worlds both seen and unseen, our shamanic ancestors walked the Otherworld in search of wisdom, guidance and healing. Today, that journey still calls to us. It whispers through our soul, “Remember….” Attendees of this discussion will discover basic shamanic concepts and cosmology. They will hear how the ancient art of shamanic journey can lead to healing for mind, body and soul, and can awaken the self to the Mystery.

Jennifer Lynn is a spiritual consultant, a soul midwife, a shamanic Druid Priestess, and a modern-day mystic specializing in Celtic mystical techniques and practices. With thirty years training and experience, Jennifer brings an extensive repertoire of tools and techniques to each session. Jennifer is also a Chinese medicine practitioner and a Minister of the Circle of the Sacred Earth, a church of animism fostering shamanic principles and practices.
