“As I interact with the images, painting them, amplifying them, dialoging with them, listening to their personal and archetypal meanings, I reveal unconscious forces at work in my own mind. Since the mind has a tendency “to structure ambiguous scenes into personally meaningful images that symbolize underling motives and emotions” (Walsh, Shamanism, p. 202), my paintings are a kind of witness that speak to my life condition, a kind of shamanic journey for healing and insight.”
Dr. Steven Farmer interviews Sheldon Shalley on one of the many approaches for bringing Shamanism into the work place. A biopsychospiritual approach, addressing the body, mind, and spiritual aspects of a problem, can provide a way for individuals to discover and heal the root causes or those sensitizing events that are often contributing to or fueling the current problems. This encourages the potential for a more whole and integrated person to emerge.Download MP3 File
Very well done. I am very interested in Shamanic healing. I have been following Hank Wesselman and I find this so captivating. I believe that in the future, this is what all healing and medicine will be.
Very good interview.. I’m more clear on my understanding of myself as a Shamanic Practitioner as I add this to Reiki
