Sacred traditions of the American Indians, attendace at Sand Festival US19 and Shinrin-Yoku with SCW
The proposal for a traveling seminar that you read below is truly a unique opportunity, a really precious one that we have created with a careful work of relationships and experiences.
We've got you the chance to attend Sand's seminars and conferences - which is the best event of its kind in the US - with an exclusive package and simultaneous translation, then we've added a breathtaking journey, a 'unique opportunity to participate in one of the most beautiful Pow Wow (a Pow Wow is a meeting of the Indians tribes with dances and sacred ceremonies) and - extraordinary two seminars (the first will be what will take place at the Sand in San José and, while the second will be partly itinerant and partly sedentary full immersion) with Selene Calloni Williams on the Shinrin-Yoku, the art of bathing in nature and on the Shamanic Yoga and the Mother Mantra.
These seminars provides the 80% of the Forest Therapy Guide school credits and 40% of the Shaman Yoga school credits.
The program is not yet final, in fact, the itinerary will change depending on where the Indians decide to keep the Pow Wow (the location is not yet established). Based on this, we will hold the second seminar in San Francisco or Yosemite National Park.
NB. Simultaneous English-Italian translation will always be available.
Even if the itinerary is not final, registrations are already open, as always we suggest you book as soon as possible to find the best rates. Places are limited.
October 23 departure from Milan and / or Rome.
Days 23, 24, 25 Stay in San José and free attendance at Sand's workshops and conferences.
Days 26, 27, 28 Stay in Yosemite National Park or in San Francisco for the seminar with Selene Calloni Williams
Days 29, 30, 31 October November stay in the location where the Pow Wow will take place (still to be defined)
1 and 2 November on a horseback with the Indians in Monument Valley

The definitive itinerary could vary both in the date (but at most a day or two), and in the itinerary depending on the location where the Pow Wow will take place.
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.
