26. SPIRIT DANCER:
THE SHAMANIC CONNECTION
Please scroll down for description and statement
One girl drums, the other dances to her beat. Yet they appear either to be twins, or aspects of the same person. In the sky are golden disks bearing eagle symbols--the spirits that have come to dance as well.
The altered states of consciousness resulting from drumming and dancing are ways of getting in touch with healing and transformative energies. These energies can subsequently be used to heal oneself and others. Shamans use these techniques routinely in their journeying and healing work.
