Her spiritual journey has taken her into some of the world’s oldest and most powerful frameworks, including Druidic, Amazonian and Andean Shamanism, reiki, Quantum Healing, Hypnosis, Emotional Freedom and Body Talk Techniques, Symbology, Numerology and Astrology.

21st Century Shaman with Space Holder, Poet and Seeker Mark Flood

6. 21st Century Shaman with Space Holder, Poet and Seeker Mark Flood

On today’s episode I am joined by Mark Flood. Mark has a passion to work with various shamanic techniques and perspectives – to open up the spaces he holds for direct and revelatory contact to pure existence.

He feels that in an age of information proliferation, we can all forget where to go to find our own visions- while being surrounded by so much of the sight already seen.

Mark has learnt from shamanic teachers over the past seven years and also acknowledges the teachings from the unseen and inner ones that have been with him and felt since a young boy.

He considers himself to still be in training for his shamanic becoming, as he believes in the long road, and the long ways in which learning arrives through the measures of walking this path through great distances of time.

Mark moves deeply and reverently within the spaces he holds and really enjoys the connective moments that arise out of the hearts of human beings gathering in sacred circles.

He practices the shamanic work daily and has allied himself through this work to a purpose and a type of medicine that helps to reveal a vision of life that Is unique and available to every one of us.

Join us as we explore Mark’s story of a felt-knowing of the Great Mystery from his boyhood, the ecstatic path of the soul, the disruptive dynamics of Shamanism, the soul’s call, working with spiritual allies and finding the resonance of ‘wonder within’. Mark shares with us how his poetry moves through him as an extension of this ‘felt knowing’ and a sublime revelation of the nonlinearity of who we were, who we are and who we are becoming, all coexisting in every moment. We end the podcast with a reading of Mark’s beautiful poetry. Divine!

8. 21st Century Shaman with Kejawen Shaman, Business Woman and Spiritual Leader, Rubiyanti Basuki

Rubiyanti Basuki was born in the high land of Dieng Plateau, Java, in 1979 and left home at an early age, engaging in life’s lessons when most of us are cocooned in family and school. 

 

Her connection with Spirit and the land through her Kejawan roots meant that she responded to life experiences through a wider angle. 

 

Yanti believes that her path of complex life realities was, and is, a path of empowerment, held by Mother Earth, to accelerate consciousness and spiritual evolution. 

She sees her experiences of life and her two children as clear channels of wisdom within that evolution.

 

Yanti is a successful business woman yet also seamlessly holds the ancient living wisdom of Javanese belief, and this fusion defines her path to complete her journey as ‘a walking mandala’.

 

Yanti is also a leader in the spiritual and social movement called Gemah Ripah which supports others to live a real spiritual daily life.


Join us as we explore the native spirituality of Java as the ‘flowing water of spirit’; the importance of harmony with all phenomenon; the relationship between the land and respect of its drive for balance; the true nature of Java’s sacred sites; shamanism and structured religions and how spirituality is not mutually exclusive of success in business and life...and so much more!

9. 21st Century Shaman with Shamanic Healer, Meditation Teacher and Spiritual Mentor, Louise Gilmore

Notwithstanding her early work as a journalist, after an intense period of crises, tragedies and shocks, Louise discovered meditation and threw herself into discovering all she could about it. This led her to eventually learning and teaching meditation and training people to become teachers for 40 years. Shamanism ‘grabbed’ her in a similar way and she has explored, practiced and taught this fascinating modality for 20 years. Louise also offers one to one shamanic healing sessions. Louise also happens to be my teacher, mentor and dear friend and I am so thrilled that she is joining me for a chat in this season. 

Join us as we explore the nature of ‘modern shamanism’, trance and the wisdom that is available to us within altered states; the spiritual familiarity of shamanism; the active space of dreaming; the importance of meditation to enter silence and what can be found within the silence. We ask the questions: Is Shamanism in our DNA? We share our experiences of ecstatic posture and meeting in ‘the other’ regardless of time or space and the questions these experiences raise about a shared spiritual reality and the power of intention….and so much more!

11. 21st Century Shaman with Shamanic Teacher, Space Holder and Medicine Man, Miguel Kavlin

Miguel A. Kavlin was born in la Paz, Bolivia, where he lived until he was 17 years old. Upon finding himself in the United States to study at university, he started to have unusual experiences which eventually led him to become interested in Native American culture and religion.

Miguel’s spiritual path has led him to studying and participating in various ceremonies with Beautiful Painted Arrow (Joseph Rael), leading him to eventually inherit the title of Chief for both the Sun-Moon Dance and the Long Dance with sacred Cactus of the Andes; training with Sifu Kenny Gong, an international martial arts teacher and traditional Chinese doctor, in the arts of Shing-Yi Chuan and Pa-Kua. This training has provided Miguel with a very serious grounding to all his spiritual practices.

 Eventually Miguel’s path led him to an apprenticeship with Don Agustin Rivas Vazques in his jungle camp. Now Miguel is the only foreigner authorized by Don Agustin to conduct his ceremonies outside the Peruvian Amazon. Since 1995 Miguel has also been apprenticing with Don Hector Aguanari and Don Jose Coral.

 Amongst his many incredible achievements Miguel has completed graduate studies in Anthropology and Philosophy; has set up a non-profit agency that works with NYC’s public school students in multicultural awareness, violence-prevention, adolescent rites of passage, and various other educational programs; a three-part Video-Documentary series on Peruvian Amazon Shamanism, entitled Spirits of the Rainforest featuring interviews with Don Agustin Rivas Vazques and the Paintings of Don Pablo Amaringo.

 Miguel started the Sacharuna Community in Bolivia,  25 years ago, dedicated to help people heal disorders and learn to serve using practices and teachings from the Amazonian Indian, native North American, Buddhist, Sikh and Judeo Chrisitian traditions and teachings.

 Miguel’s deepest prayer, to truly be of service to the collective in the most profound ways possible.

Join us as we explore the truth of ‘the Hollow Bone’ state, the vibrational nature of being, the importance of devotional inner practice and the ‘Principle’ Idea’ of all things. We share our experience of Ayahuasca ceremony, the communion with the Spirit of the Plant Medicine and the ‘naked truth’ it enables….and much much more!
