Humility

Humilty

Brant says, “Don José… …always emphasized to be humble, that humbleness is such a high quality, to have humility, to be humble in front of nature. To be humble and have humility in front of The Great Spirit is such an important part [of shamanism].” We explore the connection between humility and self-confidence, and how this can help us from being held back in our lives.

Surrendering to Nature, to the beauty of life, allows us to embrace who we are and our place in this world. This allows us to experience pure joy and laughter.
