Soul Intent Arts – Ten Years, Ten Observations of an Animistic Soul #10 (and #11)

Posted by on 1 Jan 2011 in Essay | 2 comments

In 2000, I created my neoshamanic practice, Soul Intent Arts. I’d worked with others for two years, and had crafted a personal animistic path with strong shamanic influences for ten years prior.
