Shamanic Journeying

Shamanic Journeying

The practice of Shamanic Journeying is an intrinsic aspect of shamanism worldwide. Brant Secunda explains the basic concepts of shamanic journeying as a visionary experience, in which one is able to achieve an altered state of consciousness or trance.

Shamans learn to journey into a magical doorway (NIERICA) to access an alternate universe or a parallel reality. The use or rattles and drums, Brant explains, can help to propel one on such a journey.

Why would someone go on a shamanic journey and what are the benefits of this practice? The individual can learn to connect with the spirits of nature in this doorway. We can learn the language of the world of nature and in this way we can complete ourselves and become whole people.

We inquire how to integrate this practice into our daily lives and Brant offers insights into how the experiences of shamanic journeying can empower us through experiences of natural ecstasy.

Finding the Soul

Finding the Soul

Where is our Soul? Brant Secunda says “it is in the place between two heartbeats.” But finding this place requires us to focus on the heart; to develop a relationship to nature through the heart.

We inquire about the Huichol perspective on the Soul/Body connection that has become so popularized in our modern world and learn from Brant how to empower our bodies through our innate connection to the Earth.

Do the Huichol differentiate the Spirit from the Soul? We examine this question and the importance of bringing all three (body, heart/soul, and spirit) into unification.

The Art of Chanting

The Art of Chanting

Chanting can be found in all major religions and spiritual traditions worldwide. The Huichol see the art of chanting as one of the highest and most difficult forms of spiritual practice. The ceremonial shamans are often referred to as the “singing ones.” They utilize the ancient chants to alter reality, both in the spiritual paradigm and in our everyday life, with things such as the weather.

Chanting is one way to alter consciousness and create a link to the divine. Specific tones can help to “open the heart” and shift our mental state into a more peaceful and harmonious phase.

Pilgrimage

Pilgrimage

The ancient art of pilgrimage can be found across all cultures. By approaching a “place of power” with positive affirmations, we can empower both the place and ourselves.

When we leave offerings and making prayers at a mountain, a lake, or a river, we wake up the energy of that place and are in turn present to receive the blessings of that place. By connecting with the spiritual world of nature through pilgrimage, we internalize the life force of the places we visit and carry the power with us where we go.

Meeting the Huichol People

Meeting the Huichol People

From New York City to the wilds of Mexico’s Sierra Made Mountains, Brant tells of his amazing life-changing journey in which he first encountered the Huichol tribe.

He didn’t know exactly what he was looking for, but when he was rescued by the Huichol and eventually brought to the village of Don José Matsuwa, he knew has had come home.
