This is the 4th broadcast in a series of shamanic practices that were discussed at the annual practicum that LightSong conducts. These are the teachings of LightSong’s 31st practicum 2017.  In this episode of the LightSong School of 21st Century Shamanism Podcast, Jan Engels-Smith reviews the three previous pod casts on this subject and then discusses in detail the concept of beliefs.

This pod cast concentrates on the programmability of humans and how these programs are carried in the chakra system which is where beliefs are stored in the human body.  How beliefs are often blind beliefs and until people understand and discover what they actually believes these beliefs will determine what a person manifests and how they will view the world.

Jan Engels-Smith also discusses this with three other practitioners and teachers at LightSong.  Each person contributes riveting stories and examples from experiences they have had with working with clients.

Jan also supplies listeners with other articles to read as supplemental material. http://lightsong.net/articles-by-jan-engels-smith/
