Each element and direction will be represented in the Altar. We will open to unearthing and releasing limiting core beliefs to empower the flow of abundance and balance in your life. This session will close with the deeply restorative practice of yoga Nidra or “yoga sleep.” We will then go on a guided shamanic journey to reveal spirit guides and spirit animals to receive insights and restore balance within.
