More Information about Alan:
Alan has followed a spiritual path for many years of his life. Twice each year he travels to the U.S.A to learn about Native American spiritual ideas.
As Alan researched the ways of the Native American and the different tribes. He asked if there would be interest in his work at The Well Being Shows. No doubt many Visitors follow the traditions and would enjoy listening to his knowledge.
During a short interview he spoke about the presentation:
“Ian it is not possible for me to cover every aspect of fifteen thousand years of history. The tribes have unique identities bound by shamanistic rituals”.
During his travels, Alan became accepted as a friend by tribe members. He enjoyed taking part in the ceremonies, not only this; he was taught the methods and ways of the rituals.
“The reasons for, and the sequence of each ritual is bound in tradition. In my mind, the shamanistic ideas can work for all of us, no matter what our place in life or society”.
Alan will be attending many Well Being Shows, and he will present a talk on two subjects:
‘Smudging with Sage’ and ‘Shamanism’
“It is a simple and straightforward presentation. I will provide the audience with a short insight into Native American tribes and dispel some myths. If there is an interest in the Native American and their ancient traditions come to my presentation”.
Here is an example of a Well Being Show Listing
“Alan has travelled extensively visiting Native American sacred sites, reservations, meeting and spending time with the people and gaining an understanding of their history and culture. In his talk Alan discusses the following:
Smudging – What is Smudging? And why it is practised.
What Shamanism is & the different cultures that practice.
Alan’s personal Journey with spirituality & Shamanism.
Alan will also talk a little about Native American people, their cultures & the difference between the different lifestyles they have”
