Shamanic medicine and plant culture was the focus of the Somara Shamanic Medicine Forum held in Byron Bay, Australia, Feb 7 and 8. Interest in shamanic practices, which have been with us for millennia, is growing in Australia and western countries. Somara is a portmanteau of the words Soma, the fabled ancient plant medicine of the Vedas, and the word Samara, the botanical term for a winged seed. Put simply, Somara is the winged seed of Soma. Local and international presenters included Jeremy Narby, Dimitri Mugianis, Shonagh Home, Bruce Damer, Rak Razam, Darpan, Dan Schreiber, Victoria Sinclair and many more… Join the mailing list at http://www.somara.org to become a member and watch the video presentations as they are uploaded for free over the next few months, and stay tuned for the live global webcast of Somara 2016!
