Hi, All,
I’m forwarding this little e-newsletter from Myron Eshowky, one of my most treasured teachers and a truly amazing person.
I can’t say strongly enough how much I wish that each of you will have the opportunity to meet, work with and learn from him.
Blessings and light,

Dear Circle,

It has been an exciting few months which I want to share a bit with you as well as update you on topics of interest to many of you. I just returned from the U.S. premiere of the feature documentary film, Jane’s Journey, at the Hampton International Film Festival. It is a beautiful,spiritually moving and uplifting film about the life and work of Jane Goodall. Jane’s work as a peacemaker is an inspiration to us all and many of you may be interested in the work of the Jane Goodall Institute and Roots and Shoots. I was honored to have an in depth personal meeting with Jane at the film festival and consider that meeting one of the highlights of my life. I encourage all of you to see this inspirational film when it comes to your community.

Next year,I will be teaching/working on a number of international peace projects in Israel and Palestinian territories as well as a number of international conflict resolution conferences. Additionally, I will be offering an intensive training in advanced shamanic practice for psychotherapists/helping professionals. Additional workshops will be listed in the website,,and I recommend checking the site from time to time. People wishing to contact me for personal healing, consultation or mediation may do so  through the website.

Let me highlight a few things for your interest.

1. A number of previously published articles have now been added to the website,, and
may be printed/shared with others. A new article on Healing Despair/Restoring Hope will be posted soon so keep your eyes out for the new blog posting.

2. Peace with Cancer:Shamanism as a Spiritual Approach to Cancer continues to sell well and has turned a profit. A Kindle version of the book will be available soon via A number of libraries throughout the country have bought copies of the book and may be available for lending in your community. [Lots of wisdom in this book! ~ Neal]

3. A year long training in Advanced Shamanic Practice for Psychotherapists/Helping Professionals will begin in February 2011.
The training offers a new format from similar previous trainings. Client specific topics will be explored as context for learning healing methods. Examples of these topics includes but is not limited to:

a.Spiritual delusion and madness: tools for understanding delusion and methods for bringing certain clients out of states of disorganization.
b.An exploration of the range of traumatic experiences people encounter and the possibilities and limitations of soul retrieval work. Soul retrieval will be taught as part of a 3 day focus on this topic.
c.Peace work as a model for treating grief,despair,illness (physical,mental,emotional).
d.Use of ceremonies/rituals as treatment for collective community mental health issues.
e.Spiritual nature of addiction/compulsion and approaches for addressing these issues.
f.Healing work with cancer including the notion of cancer as metaphor for the spiritual human condition.

For more information, contact:, and a full description will be sent to you. This training will be in Madison,Wisconsin and surrounding area and participants will be expected to work on their own personal issues in the context of the training. Enrollment will be limited to 8-10 participants and an application is required for acceptance.

4. Men’s Vision Quest program led by Myron  will be in August 2011 and accepting applications now. A women’s only program led by an experienced shamanic practitioner and quester will be offered next summer as well. The women’s quest will be held in early July. Both vision quest programs will be in Black River Falls,Wisconsin. To express your interest in questing or for more information, contact us at

5.Magic of Shamanic Journeying workshops held in Madison,Wisconsin. Myron will be offering a number of one day workshops in shamanic journeying and healing throughout the year with 100 per cent of the fees being donated to various causes. The first one being held December 4 and December 5, 2010 will go to support international work to prevent violence in the name of religion. In March 2011, the next event of this type will raise funds in support of Roots and Shoots/Jane Goodall programs (specific funding to Pine Ridge Reservation programs,Zimbabwe,and other international sites of need). All fees will be tax deductible.

Lastly, I want to thank everyone who supported the special healing event held in September during the Jewish Days of Awe. Several hundred dollars was donated to Common Bond Institute, the Department of Peace campaign,
and Unicef.

Wishing you all a very blessed and joyous day,
