Shamans & Siddhas Retreat : Final Afternoon Session 2016 | 9/26/2018

Shamans and Siddhas : Meeting at the Crossroads of Shamanism & Tantrism Final Afternoon Session with Isa Gucciardi Ph.D. and Robert A.F. Thurman from Menla’s Shamans & Siddhas 2016 Retreat

In this video the Foundation of the Sacred Stream’s Isa Gucciardi Ph.D discusses the history, context & modern value of Shamanistic Practices.

In this retreat, we will review the historic encounters between these two spiritual traditions from world indigenous and Indic regions and learn how they have informed one another from time immemorial. While steeped in philosophy and psychology, this retreat is also highly experiential in nature. We will explore methods of going inward drawn from both traditions including the Shamanic Journey and Indo-Tibetan Deity Meditation.

The Shamanic Journey is an ancient and time-tested method that shamans around the world have used to develop a deep relationship with the powers of the Earth and Cosmos. Deity Meditation is a form of meditation that brings the meditator into an intimate understanding of the fields of wisdom, sensitivity, and power held by the deities of the Tibetan Buddhist pantheon. We will explore the role of ritual and ceremony in both contexts and learn what role ritual and ceremony provide in bringing forward the realizations, sensitivities, and powers that are the fruits of these deep forms of inner exploration.
