David Beck has been practicing and teaching shamanism for over 15 years. He is a naturalist in New York’s Hudson Valley. In this capacity he teaches local Native American culture, wilderness survival, orienteering & tracking. He has spent the last 20 years bringing these skills to children and adults. His passion is helping people of all ages reconnect with nature and find their way back to wilderness. He also sang with and has written songs for the Nimham Mountain Singers, a Unity Drum that performs Native American music.

In our modern world, there seems to be so much conflict between people regarding spiritual beliefs. I believe that the technique of journeying holds one key to this problem. I have journeyed with people from many different backgrounds and although we “see” different things, we share a common bond. If the concept of journeying was used as a way for all faiths to deepen their spiritual connections, it would open an area of shared experience that each could understand. This would allow them to meet in a place of equality and possible even open their perspective. I hope that our world can come together and if journeying can be a bridge, I say we start building it today.” – David Beck
