Have you ever had a conversation with someone who has such a positive outlook that it feels contagious? Renee Baribeau, known professionally as “The Practical Shaman,” really has a marvelous attitude toward life. She focuses on the here and now and being present in your life and your struggles- something she calls radical awakening. In discussing her book, Winds of Spirit, we learn how to better read the signs nature is giving youto make a plan but be open to spontaneity, and to go through life with no regrets.

“ I'm the practical shaman, I want people to eat up the plate of food from this life.”
