  • We are also looking for original art and media that has a shamanic and/or visionary theme, and we would love to review your copyright-free work, along with a 150 word or less description of what it means to you.

We would love to have your suggestions for our consideration to review relevant media, including film (cinematic or documentary), music, books and other print media, and visual materials. And, as noted above, we also would appreciate your nomination of an exceptional individual to spotlight their work, their community, or their unique story. Please write us to tell us what you think is compelling about the person (can be yourself) and provide contact information.
