#2 of 11 – Shaman of Pleasure ~ The Selfish Shellfish

 

In December of 2017 Living on Purpose Lynn attended a workshop retreat (Love Heals from Within) with 5 other participants through Kalani with guide, heart-based Shaman of Pleasure, Stewart Blackburn.

This is the second of 11 short segments from their full conversation at the crescendo of that week, in which Stewart describes the aspect of selfishness and vulnerability in the process of change, using the lobster as an example.

Stewart is the author of The Skills of Pleasure, and distributes The Pleasure Journal. Stewart has more workshop retreats being offered in 2018, as well as a Mentoring program. As he describes: The skills and perspectives of Heart Centered Shamanism emphasize the loving energy that is the basis of everything. We understand this energy by paying attention to how we feel and how we want those in need of healing to feel.

These segments are recorded by video, if you wish to view on The Shaman of Pleasure YouTube Channel.
