Techniques of shape-shifting as Medicine healers, understand this deeper connections to “All Our Relations” done through this practice of working with Spirit Animals, the elemental's and nature. To feel the movement of grace which take form of eagles, condors, hawks and the flight of all the bird nation, wolves howling, understanding the wolf pack and running of the wilderness, bears hunting and protecting, and Jaguars stalking in the night and within the underworld working with the shadows. These transformational shifts of perception can change, the sense, feel, can evolve to become our animal guardians in the most powerful forms.
