Drumming The Soul Awake
Jaime Meyer’s eclectic background includes earning a Masters' Degree in Theology and the Arts from United Seminary of the Twin Cities (1998) and studies with a variety of shamanic teachers since 1983 including Jose and Lena Stevens, Tom Cowan, Sandra Ingerman, Ailo Gauo, and Martin Prechtel. His book Drumming The Soul Awake is an often funny and touching account of his journey to become an urban shamanic practitioner. Since 2001 he has led popular group drumming and ceremonial events around the Twin Cities including 13 years of sold-out Winter Solstice ceremonies that draw hundreds of people. Twenty of his plays have been produced in various cities across the USA. He co-founded the first theatre in the world for the Hmong community (a refugee population from Laos and Vietnam) and managed it for ten years, mentoring dozens of writers and scores of actors, and playing to 200,000 Hmong and non-Hmong people in various cities, including in refugee camps in Thailand.

How to Select a Practitioner
There are a number of advantages of seeing a shamanic practitioner in addition to seeking allopathic medical assistance. Because of our limited budget and staffing it is not possible for us to vet or screen each and every shamanic practitioner who advertises with us or whose name is on various lists held by organizations that advertise with us. Therefore we have established a code of ethics policy, which all individuals and businesses listed on our website agree to as a guide for maintaining the utmost integrity in the service they provide. Please review this policy and rely upon your personal discernment, as only you know what is resonant for you.
