About The Organizer

Adrienne Amundsen

I am a psychologist working with trauma, creativity, and other issues. I'm also a writer, and just released my second book of poetry "Reclaiming the Apple: Poems from Afghanistan," about my trip to Afghanistan with Global Exchange. I have also studied shamanism and the history of consciousness-- taught classes on Cave Art from a shamanic perspective-- and I have a lot of experience with ceremony, the most delicious thing!
