028: Palestinian Shaman on Being a Modern Shaman

Featuring Yazan Rah


What is Shamanism/a shaman? What does it look like to be a shaman from the west versus from indigenous cultures? A Palestinian Shaman living in LA is not the most common person you will meet. Yaz shares how he came to the spiritual path & became a shaman. He was a wealthy, corporate bigshot, numbing with drugs, alcohol & sex, until he had a breakdown. He found reiki the same week & everything changed. Also, how it was growing up in the Middle East in the war, how he’s healed himself & his family.
