Classes and Workshops

Shamanic Season Series

Spring 2023
3 Wednesdays: March 29, April 5, April 12
6:30 - 8:00pm, Zoom

For each of the four seasons, I will run a 3-week series which outlines the deep teachings and wisdom of that season.

Grounded in the perspectives and wisdom of Shamanism and Chinese Medicine, you will learn how you can best dance along with the energy of each season. We will cover the different acupuncture channels associated with the season and what their strengths and weaknesses are.

You will discover how you can get the most out of these months, what the best self-care is as well as how to work with the greater spiritual and elemental forces present.

​Each class will contain both teachings, communal sharing, and a guided meditation or shamanic journey. Each class will be recorded and shared for those who are unable to make it live.

"Dave's style of teaching makes for easy understanding of the core basics and allows room for further exploration; it’s not a “this is the way is has to be done!” format. I am so happy that I found Dave and his practice. I will forever be grateful for the healing and education I have received. He is someone I will definitely continue to seek out for further healings and teachings." - W.D.
