Michael Brian Baker: Shamanism, plant medicine,
and pranayama for transformation
I was so happy to reconnect with Michael for this conversation. Michael served as my introduction to breath work, now 6+ years ago. I have come to know how unique and powerful his breath work facilitation is, as it is combined with so many other potent ingredients, including those passed through shamanic lineage.
The most important ingredient is Michael’s consciousness. He has cultivated his presence of a healer from the trials and tribulations his own life offered him. We talk about this journey into a healer, among so many other things in this conversation.
For anyone who has an opportunity to sit in a ceremony with this man in any of the many festivals and gatherings he travels to nationally, I highly encourage you to drop into a magical experience!
