I remember when my shamanic practitioner training group first sat down to what turned out to be a three day session on how to generate and manage shamanic power. Simon, our teacher announced that this is what we were going to be doing, and some of us were quite shocked, including yours truly who instantly put up her hand:
“But I haven’t come here to get power,” I complained. “I’m not interested in having power. I’m just interested in helping people.”
And Simon just replied,” And how are you going to help people without the power to do so?”.
