"Destinistic Shamanism is an examination of the life path we have set up for ourselves and where we are on that journey in this particular incarnation". ~ Kimmapii
At The Kimmapii School of Shamanism we teach three very distinct streams of Shamanism: The Energetic, The Animistic and The Destinistic. This work falls into the Destinistic stream.
Here we study the powerful influences of Archetypal Energies in our lives, learn how to use numerous tools to determine where we are at on our journey, and most importantly, learn how to renegotiate our relationships with The Archetypes to co-create a rich destiny for ourselves rather than accept a meagre fate.

Currency is a speculative fiction novel - a face-paced expose of the value system that is driving our world.
(Click image to visit)
Currency is a novel by Shanon Lyn Harwood that was inspired by The Archetypes.
It’s the story of seven people in small town Ohio who must confront their personal attachment to possessions, prestige and their current way of life; when countries around the world begin voting to abolish money, power and position; with the common goal of ending overpopulation, poverty and hunger.
As the story unfolds, the reader is forced to examine their own values and then challenges them to ask themselves, “What if this is possible? What would I be willing to exchange for a global end to poverty, hunger, homelessness, overpopulation and more?”

Shanon entered the world of shamanism as a teenager intensely interested in tarot and astrology. This interest deepened when as a young woman, she moved to Dubai UAE, one of the worlds greatest religious melting pots. Here she was able to study numerous different religions and soon concluded that although terminology and ceremony may differ somewhat, each faith and esoteric modality was saying essentially the same thing.
At university, Religious Studies drew yet another parallel - this time to the ancient gods and goddesses from around the world. This, combined with her hands on experience with religions in Dubai and her now in-depth knowledge of tarot and astrology inspired her to devote eight years of her life to writing “It Depends on Who’s Looking - The Archetype Project”, a study of the universality of the Archetypal Energies referred to in religion, folklore and mythology.
Shanon is a shamanic practitioner, instructor and healer who devoted the last 30 years of her life to shamanic writing, teaching and practice.

...The talent that created the original themes and musical scores:
Over and over we hear people say how moved they are by the music in It Depends on Who’s Looking and they want to know where we got it.
Meet Ryan MacDonald.
Ryan is the talent behind every piece of music in the programs — all 31 original musical scores — each one created exclusively for It Depends on Who's Looking.
A client who worked with one of the programs summed it up brilliantly when she proclaimed, “Ryan’s highly textured and layered music really takes you to the mythic - its like going to the library and doing actual research about that Archetype’s energy.
Ryan spent 3 years immersing himself in the study of the 22 Archetypes that we work with. He composed each unique piece of music to reflect each individual Archetype's characteristics so that you can completely lose yourself in the energetics of that Archetype's world.
Once he had completed the themes for The Archetypes themselves, he went on to write the musical backdrops for the main video components. Ryan tells us that creating the theme for "The Archetype of Judgement" was the easiest while composing the theme for "The Bridge to God" was the most difficult.

I’m finally ready to answer your question about how it’s been going with the ritual. It’s been helping. Indirectly at first. Today I decided to busk on Stephen Avenue. I noticed how comfortable I was dancing and creating physical movement with my arms. Usually I am quite self-conscious.I would often wonder what onlookers must be thinking - things like,“She’s good at that”, or “She must be…..”. I was always full of judgement, both good & hurtful.
I had a moment when I realized that I was playing a role. That role was a coquette. And I felt comfortable. I understood that It was not me flirting with the audience but me playing a role that was flirting with the audience. It’s the groundedness I’ve been seeking and knew was out there somewhere. Thank you. And thank you to all the Archetypes. Especially the lovely Aphrodite.

In short: Feels like a new body — shed the big story — saw themes of it in front of me — faced death and the unknown — surrendered — learned to breath better.
Feels like a new identity. Lots of fears have being dampened down. Hades is amazing! I’m liking my new alignment and posture. My back feels strong and I found some muscles I didn’t even know existed back there! Hahaha!

It was the final piece, that of Ares - The King that really changed me. I avoided procrastination and grew impatient with Ares’ insisting on my acknowledging AND accepting this missing piece. So many things now aligning. So many that I feel like a child in a sweet shop! I am not rushing into anything, and I am not procrastinating either.

Well, here I am missing my ritual every night. It's as if I'm going through withdrawal, and I want to still do it, feel the energy, feel the support and strength that it gives me physically, mentally and emotionally. By the last week I felt a very strong relationship and connection to Zeus, as well as feeling much stronger physically.
Over my lifetime when I experienced pain, it caused me fear and anxiety, and if it persisted, depression also. Fear was my enemy and it became a limiting belief that was repeated over and over. How perfect that right before working with Zeus I had a painful shoulder injury. Working with Zeus showed me that pain could be turned from an enemy into an ally. I realized that the fear and anxiety I experienced with pain actually intensified it. Once I changed my perception of pain, it was greatly reduced to only a soreness, which I perceive now as a friendly sign that I am improving my strength, flexibility and stamina. I focus now on utilizing the tools and knowledge I have acquired over the years to transform my language and mindset about health. I am creating my healed mythic map.
