Today is a special episode with my friend, Dr. Frank Coppieters who is a Shaman, a teacher, an energy healer and intuitive counselor and the author of several books. We begin our conversation today with an overview of shamanism. And then we talk about the resurgence of indigenous and shamanic traditions happening all over the globe, and we place it in the context of history where where indigenous traditions were disrespected and disenfranchised of their lands and rights. During the conversation. We also stumbled on the insight that the pandemic perhaps is a collective cry for a cosmic purpose for our civilization and age. A big team that emerged this conversation was inter-generational trauma that has now surfaced all over the globe. And Frank shares his insights as to how to address it. Another important theme is the role of prophecy and the next steps in evolution of both our living planet and humanity. And in this context, we look at the work of two luminaries, including Pier de Chardin and Sri Aurobindu.
