The Photographs

           Below are Andean shaman archetypes that represent, the energies of the 8th, 4th and 2nd chakras, Eagle and Jaguar, as well as frequent power animal and a different type of archetype, wolf,  They were photographed by Ms. Bonham as they recuperated from their wounds at the Tinnity Hospital and Wildlife Conservation Center, part of the non-profit Living Desert Museum in Palm Springs, California.

Our Duties as Shaman

          A fundamental duty of those who study and practice this form of Andean healing (shamanism) that was and is practiced by the Laika of the Andes of Peru and, to some extent, of the Bolivian Andes and by many Amazonian jungle healers is that we are the stewards and caretakers of Mother Nature.  Our role is one of protection and restoration.  It is not enough just to try and leave as light a carbon footprint as possible.  We are here to help Mother Nature heal herself.  Eagle, Jaguar and Wolf are sacred animals in many indigenous societies.
