About this Course

Let us begin the New Year and 2014 empowering our lives with a spiritual journey around the directions of the Sacred Medicine Wheel with your 9 ANIMAL SPIRIT TOTEMS!

Beginning Monday, January 13, 2014, we will start our evenings of self-discovery and fun.  Each Monday we will meet in virtual circle via teleseminar at the Sacred Altar and Fire to connect with our totem animal for that direction.  Mona will lead a guided shamanic journey so that you receive the messages of wisdom from your personal animal totem for each direction of the Sacred Medicine Wheel.  The teachings that you receive will forge deeper and stronger connection to your shamanic world of existence.

There will be 10 classes encompassing 10 weeks of journeys for completion of your own personal totem medicine wheel and the gifts each directional animal totem has to offer.

Week 1 will discuss preparing your personal sacred altar space for each of our journeys and connection to the 4 elements. The following 9 weeks will be a guided audio journey to each of the directions to identify and unite with an animal totem around the sacred medicine wheel.

Have you never done a shamanic journey before?  Don't worry!  Each journey is guided and controlled with Mona Rain who brings all of her years of wisdom and experience to focus on creating a powerful experience for you.
