Last week I had the opportunity to spend a few days with Roman Hanis, the lead shaman in our film The Sacred Science. He was in the country for a small window of time and came all the way out to our studio to meet with us – a true gift.
On the last day of his visit, Roman and I sat down for a filmed interview and he covered a ton of topics, from ancient Amazonian healing strategies to Jungian dreamwork. In the coming weeks we will be releasing these videos, but today I would like to share a special segment from this talk that really struck a chord within me.
In this clip, Roman goes into the inner practices he uses to keep himself healthy while he’s busy caring for others. An art that many of us could really benefit from.
Over the years, I have had the privilege of knowing many different healers across the world – and not just indigenous elders. I’m talking about Reiki practitioners, yoga teachers, QiGong masters – and many registered nurses and medical doctors who moonlight as spiritual seekers.
In speaking with these open hearted people who are constantly in service to so many of us, I’ve noticed that while they are doing a remarkable job of nurturing others, many often lose sight of their own health.
Roman’s insights on this blew me away. After a second listen, I realized that his wisdom on this topic is relevant to just about every one of us – healer and patient alike.
Let us know what you think!
