About Jaime Meyer
Jaime Meyer’s eclectic background includes earning a Masters' Degree in Theology and the Arts from United Seminary of the Twin Cities (1998) and studies with a variety of shamanic teachers since 1983. He is the author of The Healing Ways of Shamanism (2020), Drumming The Soul Awake (1999), and innumerable articles. Since 2001 he has led popular drumming and ceremonial events around Minneapolis-St. Paul including Winter Solstice ceremonies attended by hundreds of people each year. He is the president of board of directors of the international Society for Shamanic Practice. Read about his shamanic training and lineage here.
For many years Meyer worked in the theater as a playwright, director, improvisational street theatre performer and (not all that good) magician. Fifteen of his plays have been produced in various cities across the USA. In 1990, he co-founded the first theater in the world for the Hmong community (a refugee population from Laos and Vietnam) and co-wrote, directed and produced nine original plays over ten years, mentoring dozens of new writers and scores of actors, and playing to 200,000 Hmong and non-Hmong people in various cities, including in refugee camps in Thailand. He was a free-lance theatre critic for seven years for Minneapolis St.Paul's two daily newspapers. The Minneapolis Star Tribune called Meyer’s playwriting, “…enormously seductive. It’s far-fetched whimsy with thickly textured thoughtfulness. It’s like metaphysical cartoons on speed.”
