"I USE MEDITATION!" Meditation has been the single most significant practice of my life for over 25 years, beginning with a guided meditation. Both Meditation and Shamanic (mystical) teachings are the foundation for everything I do in this life! I meditate or practice a shamanic journey every day, even if only for a few minutes at a time.
