About the Workshop Leader

Larisa Koronowski (ChokBar) had a mystical experience of light entering her body during meditation after which she was able to assist people in healing. Despite coming from a long line of shamanic healers, she resisted the calling, taking up jobs as a German language teacher and then as an interpreter for the Government of the Republic of Tuva at the Ministry of National Policy. She is a now a native Tuvan hereditary shamaness and is willing to share her secrets.

This program is now SOLD OUT.
