Natural Awakenings New York City

Explore Modern Shamanism in New York City

A workshop led by Master Shaman Hamilton Souther will introduce multiple facets of the discipline of Modern Shamanism on November 4 and 5, 2011 at the HiltonTimes Square. Souther, who serves as co-founder of Modern Shamanism and author of the Modern Shamanism course, is a traditionally trained master Amazonian shaman who carries the titles of ayahuasquero, a medicine man trained in traditional Shamanism and a master in medicines involving trees, sanango, perfumes and exorcisms.

In 2001, Souther entered the Peruvian Amazon, where he trained with locally renowned master shamans Julio Llerena Pinedo and Alberto Torres Davila in a traditional apprenticeship. Coupling cultural anthropology and traditional shamanic practices, he sought to help solve the spiritual, mental and personal dilemmas of Westerners seeking shamanism as a solution to the lack of enchantment found in their daily lives. The result of that quest is Modern Shamanism.  
The local event takes participants on a mystical journey, applying insights from personal experience to course theory. The aim is to offer a life-changing experience and the tools necessary to continue the individual evolutionary process launched at the event. The discipline trains students to become modern shamans, so that they can seamlessly integrate practices learned through modern life themes into their daily lives.
