A trained Shamanic Facilitator will move into an altered state (without the use of drugs of any type) to undertake a guided journey in which he or she will work with symbols, events from this life or past lives, and archetypal energy to assist the client to achieve healing.

Note that the Shamanic Facilitator does not “heal” the client. Shamans are catalysts and act as a mirror for their client. All healing originates from within the client. A shaman will retrieve symbolic “pieces” which may trigger a deep internal healing crisis within the client. These pieces are often linked to deeply-rooted feelings or memories of bad experiences which may have been suppressed, which means the healing process is often associated with a release of strong emotion.
