If you would like to learn about the historical evolution of shamanism, alchemy, initiation, and the importance and empowerment of experiencing a shamanic journey, this segment is for you. Learn some fun tidbits of knowledge about the fact that Plato, Socrates, and Aristotle were into shamanism. Find out what the Kings of history had to do to be given sovereignty over the land, a process that is not happening in modern times. Ishtar explains that “myth is not history” and that “our ancestors were shamanic in their thinking”, and how and why, in the 4th century Roman Empire, shamanism was driven underground.
We also discuss the role of the shaman and the importance of learning how to die. Many of us may feel that learning how to die is irrelevant, but after hearing Ishtar’s perspective on it, it may be that we can learn to let go of our fear of death. Ishtar says that anyone can learn to do shamanic journeying, if they have the proper guidance. During this conversation, for the first time, Kim shares her perspective and experience of Rainmaking.
