Call in to speak with the host
Gwilda Wiyaka is a dynamic, diverse woman of mixed heritage among which is Scots/Irish, Bohemian and Cherokee. While being born in the US, she grew up overseas and is widely traveled and familiar with many cultures. Her background with different societies and locations around the world and ongoing fascination with the way life works, prompted her life-long immersion into shamanism, an ancient Earth based healing modality present in most if not all indigenous societies. She has studied Shamanism for over 38 years and has been a practitioner for over 20 and a teacher of the shamanic arts for 15. Gwilda has studied with American Indian healers from the Seneca, Sioux, Navajo, Arapaho and Choctaw traditions. She has also received training in Tibetan, Core and Celtic Shamanism.
Gwilda will discuss shamanism and her new book, So, We're still Here, Now What? referring to the end of the Mayan Calendar 12-21-2012 which didn't bring the end of our world.
Gwilda believes, “In our exposure to increasingly sensational media where things are always blowing up, we have come to miss the subtleties of life. With constant input painting the world as a place of extreme volatility, it is understandable that we tend to superimpose this sensationalism onto everything around us, including the way we understand myths, legends and prophecies.
It's good to talk.
