The Initiation Series: Desiree DeMars
Healer, Desiree DeMars is our first guest in our Initiation Series: Curing our Cultural Sickness. She will join us to discuss her own initiation experiences and how they transformed her. It is our hope that in hearing the stories of a diverse range of contemporary initiation experiences-that have functioned to truly transform individuals into shamans-that we will come to remember what initiation truly means. Desiree is a co-founder of The Center for Shamanic Healing in the San Francisco Bay Area. The Center is dedicated to bridging the ancient and ancestral wisdom of shamanic and spiritual healing with direct engagement with spirit in a contemporary life.

Her holistic lifestyle has evolved into 20 years studying herbal remedies, live food nutrition, several bodywork and energywork modalities, and shamanic healing arts. Her travels have brought her in contact with indigenous healers in Peru, Ecuador, Bali, Hawaii, Mexico and Nepal. If we are really lucky we will get to tell us her story of initiation by scorpion...

Brad Steiger - An Evening With Brad Steiger & Laila del Monte - Animal Communication
An Evening With Brad Steiger
Brad Steiger has authored or coauthored 150 books on the mysterious and unknown. Ghostly phenomena were a common occurrence in Brad Steiger's childhood home. Because these experiences were accepted by a mystically inclined mother and challenged by a skeptically inclined father, Steiger believes that he achieved a balanced attitude toward ghosts and hauntings that has served him well during his nearly 50 years as a psychical researcher.
Laila del Monte
Laila del Monte earned a master's degree in the history of religion from the Sorbonne before becoming an acclaimed flamenco dancer. She teaches animal communication in the United States and in Europe, her specialty being “problem horses” and healing sick and injured animals.
