I still feel the magic of sitting at Byron Bay last Thursday while the waves washed in from the ocean accompanying Karuah as he sung.
On Board the Byron Bay World's First Solar Powered Train?
Once you have looked and read through the pages of Sean's book I doubt if you could find a better form of shamanic magic to sooth you.
The stories of how Sean came to take the photos of pure synchronistic moments in his life encounters are pure shamanism in motion.
Which proves that you don't necessarily have to be hit by lightning to have a shamanic moment, you just have to be lucky enough to be paying attention to what's going on around you on many levels.
I realized when I bought Sean's book that he was the photographer who caught the picture of the famous Australian white whale a week before my visit to Byron Bay, which I wrote about in this recent post -
The Secret Life of Whales?
How more in tune with nature can you get than that?
And I notice that Sean is a bit of a poet along the lines of Joyce Kilmer when I spotted a few lines he wrote in the section of his book about koalas -
"Just as everyone loves a dolphin in the sea,
so everyone loves a koala in a tree."
You'll thank these medicine artists for it in time.
Or so my own spirit animal seemed to be telling me as I withdrew more cash from an ATM in the streets of Byron Bay on Thursday as the sun set in the west.
