Lena guides us through a Shamanism Without Borders process on how to work with the element of water, the many ways water shows up around us and how to honor this element.

Shamanism Without Borders (SWB) is a Global Response Network of the Society for Shamanic Practice. SWB supports shamanic practitioners who tend to natural disasters, acts of terrorism, war, pollution, and anything that causes disruption and suffering to humanity, to the animal and plant life, and the earth’s delicate bio-system.

If this work resonates with you and you are interested in finding ways to become further involved, this Spring SWB will offer a free in-person leadership training workshop for those committed to facilitating this work as an SWB Community Leader.

Led by Jose and Lena Stevens, over the course of three days we will share and explore the vision of SWB, discuss leadership guidelines, ethics and best practices. We will then turn our attention towards working in small and large practice groups, both remotely and through local field trips to practice Shamanism Without Borders in and around the Santa Fe, NM area. For more information about this event and all of SWB’s offerings, please visit shamanicpractice.org/SWB.

    Lena, As I return to shamanic practice in my life, (after over 10 years of practice and then a long illness), I find your sessions here, on this machine on my table, such a gift!!

    Your voice is perfect for the Icaros you share with us….. it helps me transition into a shamanic state and to deeply feel my connection with the gracious spirits offering their help.

    I look forward to any Call to Action you may present in the future …many thanks Valerie
