Meet Koitso Salil Mukhia alias Salil on 6th October and step into a world of spirits, rituals and healing.
This 90 minute session will introduce you to Shamanism and way of the drums, earth and symbols. This is a run-up event for the coming weekend –Story Exhibit, Story-telling Sessions & Book Launch
Often shrouded in the mystic veils of the forbidding mountains, the ancient practices have existed for tens of thousands of years and continue to survive the modern times. While greatly endangered and facing irreversible loss of oral transmissions, the shamanic traditions of the mountains continue to remind us of our ties with the natural world, a primordial relationship of energies that cannot be broken.
During the interactive talk, Koitso leads you through the ages before our times and teachings of Yeti while exploring the role of ritual drums for altering conscious awareness and use of shamanic archetypes and symbols for personal shifts in consciousness.
