The Four Winds Society

The shamans are coming!

Excitement is in the air at the Four Winds as we prepare for several wonderful programs and events:

We are pleased to announce that Peruvian shamans
Don Francisco, Don Juan and Doña Juana are joining us this autumn in the U.S.! 

Whether you are taking a Light Body class or attending the
Great Shamanic Initiation on the East Coast at Omega, or the Four Winds Graduate Gathering  and classes in California, you will have the opportunity to sit with the beauty and wisdom of these wise healers and spiritual leaders.
The acclaimed shamans will also be in South Florida for Miami’s first-ever Great Shamanic Initiation on November 1, 2014. We hope you will join us for this life-changing event, as we sit in ceremony and receive energetic transmissions with the Shamans.

Alberto and Marcela have developed three beautiful programs in Chile: A Women’s Medicine Journey, the Grow a New Body intensive healing retreat, and the brand-new Fast-Track Light Body Course. 

Chile is an extraordinary land of startling beauty, from the towering Andean mountains to lush forests and hundreds of miles of coastline. It is also a land of deep spiritual heritage and energy. We invite you to come to Chile with The Four Winds Society to create optimal health and well-being or step into your journey as a student of the Light Body School.

I want to thank all of you for your continued enthusiasm and for sharing your journey with us. You are the modern-day Shamans. Together we stand to dream a world filled with beauty, health, prosperity and peace.

In Munay,

Elena V. Carpenter

Dying Consciously, the Greatest Journey: Teacher’s Training - Joshua Tree, CA - October 17-19th, 2014
