John Carosella is a shamanic practitioner and co-founder of Firefly Willows, a traditional healing arts center in Palo Alto, California. An engineer by training, John has been delving deep into the path of shamanism and metaphysics since 2003. He has studied cross-cultural shamanism with Michael Harner and Celtic shamanism with Tom Cowan. After 25 years in high tech, he is now living a more authentic life, in resonance with his higher self. He offers shamanic healing and counseling, lectures, and workshops. He has developed two seminar series: Exploring Reality and Healing Perspectives, based on his travels, work, and research. John will be leading two presentations at this year's PantheaCon in February. You can find some of his writing online at fireflywillows.blogspot.com and TheSwallowtailProject.blogspot.com.
