Ayurveda is a system of healing that has its roots in ancient India, Tibet and Nepal
and is the oldest intact healing system in existence on our planet.  Ayuh means life and veda means wisdom; Ayurveda literally means the wisdom of life.  According to Ayurveda every individual is a microcosm of the cosmos; the outer life and the inner life are reflections of one another.
We experience health and joy when we understand and align with both our individual constitutions as well as the natural rhythms of nature. Ayurveda gives us a framework through which to understand the needs of the body and psyche in the form of the Subtle Elements (earth, water, fire, air, space) and the Doshas(vata, pitta, kapha). 

Dr. Kamini Kaushal
Dr. Kaushal is from Jaipur, India, is an Ayurvedic Physician and associate of Dr. Rajesh, 
and a Professor of Ayurvedic Science (medicinal plant pharmacology) in Rishikul Govt. Ayurvedic PG college,Haridwar (UK) Dr. Kaushal is actively involved in Ayurvedic Research & Development of new treatment protocols for various forms of cancer & Diabetes.

Poetry Slam  
It's the longest-running slam in Omaha, often featuring 
some of the best performance poets in the nation.
Open mic starts at 7:30 followed by the Slam • Sign up BEFORE 7:30; signup is limited


What is a Poetry Slam? It's competition poetry; meaning humor, politics, enlightenment,
sex, entertainment masquerading as literature, literature masquerading as entertainment.
Poets read, then judges chosen from the audience flash Olympic-style scoring (ranging from 1 to 10) based on both the writing and performance of the poem.  This goes on for 3 rounds to determine somebody with a high score that we can declare as the winner. In truth, everyone who adds to the evening should be considered a winner, but since we only have one Golden Monkey trophy, we have to figure out some way to give it out.

FREE Introduction to Shamanic Journeying

Taught by Ellen Winner, CSC®*
Ellen Winner practices shamanism in Boulder, Colorado, 
and serves as Guest Faculty for the Foundation for Shamanic Studies. 
Extensively trained in Core Shamanism by the Foundation, she has also studied
in Nepal with indigenous Himalayan shamans.

In the Basic experiential workshop, participants are introduced to core shamanism,
the universal, near- universal, and common basic methods of the shaman to enter non ordinary reality for problem solving and healing. Particular emphasis is on the classic shamanic journey, one of the most remarkable visionary methods used by humankind to explore the hidden universe otherwise known mainly through myth and dream.

Participants are initiated into shamanic journeying, aided by drumming at 4-8 cycles per second, a technique for experiencing the shamanic state of consciousness and awakening dormant spiritual abilities including connections with Nature.
Practice includes comparisons by participants of their discoveries in shamanic journeys as well as introduction to shamanic divination and healing. They learn methods for journeying to meet and study with their own individual 
spirit helpers in non-ordinary reality, a classic step in shamanic practice.
Participants learn how to use their journey skills to restore spiritual power and health, and how shamanism can be applied in contemporary daily life to help heal oneself, others, and the Planet.
The Basic Workshop is a prerequisite for all advanced FSS shamanic training workshops and programs.
