Shamanism for Activists: The Alchemy of Social Transformation with Lenore Norrgard

“Our times call for the transformation of rallies, protests, and marches into massive, intentional sacred healing rituals, in which we ally ourselves with all humans, the compassionate spirits, the ancestors, and the spirit of the earth and stars.” This is the vision of our guest, Lenore Norrgard, shamanic healer and social alchemist. Lenore will discuss her journey from revolutionary social activist to profound social healer and share her experiences leading social healing rituals from the White House to inner north Portland where she lives.

For shamans ritual is not mindless habit or rote actions, but the means by which we engage the spirit world to assist us in changes we are unable to do alone. Lenore explains that, “Through ritual we remember our oneness with all things, even our opponents, and find our way past oppositional stances to a place where we create collective healing for all and profound social change.”
