What's happening through Lamb & Lion Spiritual Guidance Ministries?
- Rev. Katrina Leathers and I lead Soul Journeys Shamanic Drumming Circle in Berkeley, CA once a month.
- I'm collaborating with two spiritual director colleagues on a book about Christian mystical prayer and meditation and shamanic journeying. Both traditions journey to spiritual realities and beings that can bring healing and wisdom to our troubled world. How are they similar and how are they different? What can we learn from these traditions?
