“This workshop guided me towards developing a more profound personal and  spiritual practice that I have been wishing to obtain. It’s a must for  anyone looking to have a deeper connection with spirit and your true  essence.” - 

Marianne Pestana, Former Producer on PBS, Show Host

We live in a time of great changes. Technology is transforming our lives very quickly, enormous possibilities open up for individuals and for the whole of humanity.

Scientific evidence provided by modern biology and physics proves the interrelation of all life forms and is increasingly confirming the concept of true planetary unity, the existence of an interdependent network of information that ties humans, society, the environment and the whole biosphere together.

We increasingly find ourselves facing the choice whether to work towards a world where cohesion and connection are the source of true progress, or instead, use this knowledge for destruction. Which path are we taking? This question is weighing on us, a definitive answer is becoming more and more urgent, whilst an optimistic vision about the future of our world seems less and less likely.

From the ecological point of view, we know that global warming is putting our survival in danger.

According to the UN, more than a million species will disappear in the next few decades, and the responsibility lies in the way human beings have used and abused natural resources.

Humans are causing the extinction of other species at 1000 times the speed of natural selection.

Science warns us that the sixth mass extinction might be near. But this time it won’t be because of a meteorite or an ice age, but because of a single species – our species.

The ecological emergency isn’t, however, the only problem we face.

According to recent analysis, the great majority of people do not like their work and do not feel passionate about what they do.

Poverty is on the increase and a valid alternative to our economic model, based on the incessant increase of productivity, and thus the eternal kindling of new needs amongst the population, has not yet been found. Yet, the buying power of common people decreases. The result is widespread, deeply rooted frustration.

Educational systems are unable to properly prepare people to face change, whilst technology causes complex logical thinking to be ever more important. Priorities are not balanced: emotional, spiritual values are increasingly set aside, causing an epidemic of stress, anxiety, depression. Not to talk about the difficulty of finding peaceful stability at the geopolitical level, or about the crisis of values within traditional religious institutions.

We need to match technological progress with a new thinking model. To achieve this, we must reintegrate into the overall picture the human dimension of myth, of symbols, we need to seriously analyse the archetypes that shape our vision of reality, our world, our behaviour. An archetype is the original form of an experience; it determines the experience’s profound meaning.

We have a pivotal role to play in the formation of new thinking methods able to intensify awareness and consciousness as the individual’s most powerful tools. Not being content with what one has learned at school, broadening knowledge and skills to develop a personalised intervention system, and always acting creatively: this how one can really have a positive influence on one’s own destiny, on relationships and on the broader world.

Acquiring a new awareness of mind, heart and body is the one true vector of evolution, in the social as in the personal sphere.

The soul, as the organ of our imagination, needs to re-assert itself through this transformation of the conscience so that a re-imagined human being, a true ecology and a new beginning for society may come about.


Selene Calloni Williams is an author and documentarian who has authored bestseller books published in several languages. Selene’s spiritual journey started in Sri Lanka where she met her first teacher who initiated her to shamanic yoga and where she practiced meditation in a Theravada Buddhist monastery. On her return to Europe she graduated in psychology and went on to get a post-graduate degree in screenwriting. She then encountered the psychoanalyst James Hillman, who introduced her to the world of archetypal psychology and imaginal vision. She also spent many years in Siberia and Mongolia deepening her understanding of shamanic traditions from the teachings of Turko-Mongolian, Altaic and Buryat shamans. She wrote several books on Turko-Mongolian shamanism and has made several documentaries on this subject. Her  book “The Mother Mantra: The Ancient Shamanic Yoga of Non-Duality” (Inner Traditions/Bear & Co., January 2019), is a key to making great positive changes in life, a powerful tool for overcoming subconscious programming and releasing fears. All the Shamanic Yoga practices can activate skills and facilitate the gifts of knowledge, vision and imagination. Selene founded the school of Imaginal Counselling in Switzerland, and the school of Shamanic Yoga.

Erica Francesca Poli is a psychiatrist, psychotherapist and counsellor. A member of scientific societies, including the IEDTA (International Experiential Dynamic Therapy Association) and the ISTDP Institute and OPIFER (Italian Psychoanalytical Organisation, Federation and Registry). A thorough and diverse psychotherapeutic training has provided her with the ability to unite the world of the psyche with spirituality, developing a personal interdisciplinary and psychosomatic method of work. This knowledge is continuously expanded by her active participation and organisation of courses, congresses and scientific publications, her study of supplementary medicine with the implementation of traditional pharmaceuticals, phytoceuticals and nutriceuticals, as well as the use of innovative therapeutic techniques that are strongly rooted in new Neuro-scientific knowledge on the functioning of the mind. This approach is not limited to treating individual psychic disturbances, but involves caring for and paying attention to the person in their entirety, mind and body.

When apparently different systems meet, a magical explosion creates something new that, actually, it is something as older as the same concept of universe. This is the impression that this course has instilled within me, word after word, thought after thought. Overcoming time and space I found myself in a completely new dimension in which Platonism system, shamanism and science blend together in an inspiring meeting of energies. A wide comprehension of individual as the part and the whole requires a global contribution coming from different places and times, from different belief systems and thoughts which, deep inside, share common origins. The ancient greeks, the non-duality method, physics and psychology here offer to the listener a global vision, starting from the particular, that aims to shape a new thinking method. Happiness must not be a product coming from our society system but happiness has to be the starting point of every social construction, of every works and politics, of every action aimed at individual and global welfare. In our society there is a lack of actions aimed at humans beings. Capitalism is not providing solution but creating problem in order to sell solutions. Technology, science, progress, made our life easier but we are not happier. Happiness is a great lack in our society. The exclusion of the soul, intended in a wide meanings which includes philosophy, meditation and quantic physics, is the main problem of our lives. Bring the soul back to our world is the only path to follow. This course deals with life and death, as a single mirror in which human beings is reflected, a mirror in which you could see the entire universe and breathing in synch with the whole. It is important to feel, interpret, recognize, what we experience in this reflection because “Interpreting the world means to create the world”. Having different tools of creation, such as, shamanism, philosophy, psychology, means to empower our knowledge, to strengthen our ability to reach a deep view, a new, ancient, thinking method. For me, this course was an inner journey through the most ancient traditions of spirituality and wester philosophical roots, together with animism and shamanism, physics and philosophy. This was not a going back but this was a remembering our abilities, our tools, our symbols and origins in order to go ahed. To reconnect with sacredness, with Myth. With Soul.
