Traversing the Worlds - an Evening of Shamanic Journeying with Jnana & Madhu

  • Swedenborgian Hillside Community Church 1422 Navellier Street El Cerrito, CA, 94530 United States (map)

With the combined guidance and assistance of Jnana Gowan & Madhu Anziani join us for an evening of deep exploration of personal & spiritual growth. This evening of magic will assist in releasing that which no longer serves; exploring other worldly realms and connecting more deeply to self and spirit allies. 

Using the powerful container of the Pachakuti Mesa, a shamanically empowered altar, we will practice the ritual art of limpias, energetic clearing/cleaning  on one another in addition to the rich shamanic journeys. 

Madhu will guide us to the Ukhupacha - the lower realms via vocal looping & weave soundscape rhythms. He brings his deep insight of chanting & self reflection to the circle to augment the experience of each participant.

Jnana will embellish the sound field with sacred instruments and lead the upper world journey with a 32" Paiste Gong. She will assist by offering a guided meditation to both worlds.

The participant is invited to travel to both worlds:  the ukhupacha; the inner realms & the place of the sub-conscious. A world where things are hidden within the shadow-self and may be brought to light and transformed. Then, to the upper world, the hanaqpacha; the superior realm. Here, one may meet ascended masters, high teachers and beneficent ancestral beings here to assist each person on their earthly path.  

To give space between these worlds, we will have a small break - enjoying a light snack and tea.

Journey work has the potential to be extremely powerful and create change in one's life in a short period of time. The journey provides an expedited key to a gateway that has always existed. It is truly soul-nurturing work.

We invite all levels of participants, those that are new to shamanism and those that have been on a medicine path for years. It is for everyone.

- If you feel stuck, lost, isolated...join us to assist in a shift that may bring you back into wholeness.                                                                                                                                     - - If you are a curious seeker, this might be just the prescription you are looking for.                 - If you want to be with folks that are on a quest for deeper connection to spirit, this is the place.

Bio of leaders:
Jnana Gowan, Sanctioned Teacher of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition is a healer and community leader in service to shamanic arts. Director of Powerhouse Education (her umbrella organization) is an institution dedicated to personal and planetary well being. As an Urban Ceremonialist and healing practitioner, Jnana has led workshops, classes and retreats for two decades. These events/healing sessions are infused with her unique blend of enthusiasm, insight, body-knowledge and a good sense of humor. Her healing center, The Ukhu Pacha Healing & Inquiry Space is in Albany, CA.

Madhu Anziani is a vocalist whose sound has been described as “otherworldly, both a portal and a vessel for sound healing.”  His vocal looping, weaving soundscapes and beatboxed rhythms with traditional Tibetan mantra and other sacred musical invocations, creates a deeply meditative soundscape.  

Madhu learned from the first-hand experience of being paralyzed as a quadriplegic, and used sound and energy healing to completely recover. He has studied Jazz and World Music and went on to be certified in Sound, Voice, and Music Healing at the California Institute for Integral Studies.  He has studied very closely with Wisdom Healing Qi Gong Master Mingtong Gu and Peruvian Altomisayoq Don Oscar Miro-Quesada of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition.
