Sacred traditions of American Indians and seminar with Selene Calloni Williams in the spectacular location of El Monte Sagrado. From April 19th to May 1st
A unique opportunity, not to be missed to meet authentic traditions of tribes, those of the Native Americans, so difficult to contact for those who are not native.
It will be dedicated to the Mother Mantra and Shamanic Yoga. Whether you are a Bearer, a Keeper or have never met the Mother Mantra before, this seminar will give you a perspective that you do not know about the great tradition of the Mother Mantra and Shamanic Yoga.
In addition we will have the opportunity to do the seminar dedicated to Shinrin Yoku practices, the immersion in the woods, which this year we could put on schedule only in Poschiavo with an extremely limited number of participants due to the limited capacity of the shelter.
The seminar provides the necessary credits for the Forest Therapist school.

To Know to Travel with us
We organize study and research Journeys respecting nature and the cultures we visit. Books and documentaries are born from these trips. We take a lot of time to prepare these trips and still at the last moment before leaving, we reserve the possibility to change the program in line with the movements of the shamans or the characters that it is our interest to meet. Since our itineraries are not touristic, sometimes it is not possible to find accommodation of a high standard but it is necessary to adapt to sleeping in a tent, for example.
The preparation of a journey often requires years of work and we work with a lot of passion. Coming back from our journeys you will extremely enriched and with great inspirations in your heart, with new energies to do, to think, to create. Our travels have given a lot to many people. Sometimes you have to walk, sometimes sleep in a tent, sometimes travel the night because the ritual ceremony that awaits us at dawn is unmissable. But always what you receive in return exceeds a thousand times the effort that required.
Who wants to come with us should accept all the peculiarities of our travels, should have a spirit of adaptability, and be seriously interested in the object of our research.
Who wants to travel with us should appreciate our ability, certainly unique and valuable, to trace paths to discover authentic characters able to give a lot on a human and spiritual level, such as great masters of yoga, shamans, tantric oracles, sadu, budo, etc. Our journeys require love for the earth, for Man, require enthusiasm (en-theos = being in God), intelligence, sensitivity, respect.
A trip with us can give a lot to anyone, but not everyone can come with us. For these reasons we carry out a telephone call or Skype interview with the interested parties before accepting them in our small travel groups.
