A podcast with Susan Mokelke
From the series, Curious and Curiouser with Robin Johnson: a Great Mystery Podcast Series
October 25

This informative interview opens on a personal note, as Susan Mokelke tells the story of her path towards shamanism. It continues with discussions of some of the most widely asked questions about shamanism: the prominent role of songs and drumming; children and their animal spirits; shamanic healing in nature; and the innate ability of all humans, with training and practice, to access the worlds of the compassionate spirits.
