Featured Presenters

Mark Jensen, DC | EarthPrayers Qi Gong

EarthPrayers Qi Gong is a response to and offering for this potent time of unraveling and reweaving we find our culture and world journeying through. As a contemporary Qi Gong practice, these forms explore and build in the body a sense of reciprocating connection to the world around us and under our feet.  In so doing, it becomes an embodied mythopoetic prayer on behalf of our world, ourselves, and all Life. It is influenced cross-culturally by indigenous teachings, Daoism, and the western alchemical tradition. For this class series I will utilize Qi Gong forms that are applicable to the themes of this year’s conference, particularly “how to bring in the allies to work with the spirit world to dream and move into the future.”

Mark Jensen, based in Santa Fe, NM, brings a rich and eclectic journey to his synthesis of EarthPrayers Qi Gong. He has worked in the healing arts for over 35 years with a focus on our embodied connection to the Earth. Mark also brings over 30 years experience in land based community ceremony and decades long involvement with Deep Ecology and The Work That Reconnects to his teachings and Earth service. He is presently a certified Qi Gong instructor through the Lotus Nei Gong School.

José Luis Stevens | Prophecies and the New Dream

Where do we go from here as a planet? We will review some prominent shamanically oriented prophecies from Indigenous peoples including the Toltecs and the Mayans and see what they say about the paradigm shift, our chances for success, and the obstacles to overcome. We will explore the evolution of consciousness and where it is taking us and look specifically at why we are experiencing such polarization, the role of the pandemic, and the future of shamanism and what this means for the next 1000 years.

As a shamanic practitioner, he has been humbled to learn about living a balanced life through listening to stories, songs, and teachings of his people, and those willing to share what they have carried forward from their ancestors. These gifts inspire his passion for empowering indigenous tribes to preserve their own wisdom and healing ways. The more this wisdom is empowered the more the world heals into harmony.

Crafting Ethical Shamanic Intentions

This workshop will focus on the complexities of ethical practice as a contemporary shamanic practitioner. We will present an understanding of ethical practice that acknowledges both the existence of clear ethical boundaries that must never be crossed as well as the presence of grey or uncertain areas. A framework for crafting ethical shamanic intention will be discussed and explored using case presentations. Application of the framework to Shamanism without Borders will be covered.
