Shamans Dream is Sahuna Love's (AKA Craig Kohland), musical prayer for healing, transformation, love, and happiness for all beings. Sahuna is inspired by the spiritual musical lineages from around the globe and the healing power of the drum. Every Shamans Dream offering is a ceremony and opportunity for all who receive the music to make an intension & prayer for their own lives and use the music as medicine. This healing music is offered as a prayerformance or an ecstatic dance journey and in conjunction with Sahuna's services as a medicine ceremony facilitator, music producer, festival and retreat producer and healing arts practitioner.
