GoFundMe to Advanced Shaman Training

My wife Linda and I have opened a GoFundMe account hoping to raise enough funds to get us to California in March 2018 for Advanced Shamanic Training with Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D. , pictured above. He is a medical anthropologist who received his doctorate from Stanford and then spent thirty years among native shamans of South America, Africa, and Indonesia. He combines his direct experience of shamanism with contemporary neuroscience to teach what he calls One Spirit Medicine. We want to attend his 30 day immersion course but we have been unable to set aside the funds for the past three years. If you can help please go to this GoFundMe Campaign

Thank you!
