The language of the soul is the mythic. When we shift our perceptions on the soul level and create new and more expansive maps, we update the quality of our lives. Poetry, story writing, ceremony and embodiment practices can help us to see were we are in our stories, where we may be stuck and how to step into the great journey of life with eyes and arms wide open. When we shift our maps, we shift our lives. The sacred work of the shaman is to be a cartographer of the soul and to assist the client in navigating this awesome journey of life with enthusiasm, awareness and grace.
