Experience a Shamanic Weekend with Nepai Shaman Bhola Banstola

A rare opportunity to connect with an indigenous Nepalese Shaman for ceremony and sacred initiation! Bhola Banstola is a renowned international teacher and healer, and he will be bringing entirely new material on his fifth visit to Minnesota.

This experiential two-day workshop will be devoted to traditional Nepali shamanic healing systems and practices. Bhola will share shamanic practices and ceremonies from the sacred Himalayan tradition. We will be doing many journeys to deepen awareness of one's true self and to bring about healing on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels.
