Do you long to feel fulfilled, embodied and saturated with the simplicity of the present moment?
What with all the distractions, stress and rush of everyday life, being truly present can feel like an impossible feat. The medicine for this disconnection, however, may be simpler than you think! These mini Fast Friday episodes are all about giving you that little spark of light and inspiration to motivate healing in your day.
Today I will read you a segment from The Lost Art of Heart Navigation: A Modern Shaman’s Field Manual by Jeff Nixa, J.D., M.Div. Jeff is a shamanic practitioner and the founder of Great Plains Shamanic Programs, an array of healing, counseling and shamanic education services including one-on-one fire talks, seminars, university classes, outdoor retreats, and wilderness vision quest experiences. Jeff began walking the shamanic heart path in 2009 after experiencing a life-changing vision quest ceremony in the north Michigan wilderness.
Jeff’s healing career has spanned thirty years as a university campus minister, hospital chaplain, pastoral counselor, and massage therapist. Earlier in his career Jeff earned his law degree from Lewis and Clark Law School in Portland, Oregon. He has been a professional associate with Crows Nest Center for Shamanic Studies USA, and completed a 2-year shamanic teacher-training program with Sandra Ingerman. Jeff has studied with the Harner Foundation for Shamanic Studies, shamanic healers in the Peruvian Amazon and the Andes mountains, and Oglala Lakota elders on Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota
We will be discussing Jeff’s three tips for finding your body and the esoteric science behind each statement:
1. Get outside
2. Drum or rattle
When you find your body, you will find the present.
