During our shamanic journey we will learn a method to connect with the "Other Side", the spiritual side of the world.

We shall expand awareness of ourselves and our environment and awakens everyday life skills in that we could not experience before. The sound of the shaman drums supports us while traveling with its healing rhythm. (Shamanic journeys are something the shamans do to take lessons from the "forces" and to open up the great universal knowledge to use this Knowledge on "this side" to heal themselves and others)

Christof Schnepp studied the yogic philosophy directly in India and realized that many of the big world philosophies, religions, and views of life blend into each other like pieces of a big puzzle. His yoga teacher and Shaman Jutta Quja Hartmann, over many years guided him through ceremonies, seminars and healing work, which helped him a lot in learning about him and the world. In 2009, he decided to become a yoga teacher and taught his first course. For more info visit:
