Walking the Shamanic Path
Year-long training beginning June 2020
Learn to walk this world armed with the perspective and power of Shamanism!
Shamanism is mankind's oldest spirituality and medicine, and to understand it brings about a profound connection with all of life. It is based on the underlying principles that everything is connected, and is a manifestation of Spirit. While the term "shaman" is a term given to an individual by their community, and is appropriate only in that context, the tools, techniques, and viewpoints of shamanism are available to us all.
This yearlong training will begin with the foundations of the shamanic way of life, and provide grounded understanding to employ the perspectives and tools of shamanism in your day-to-day life.
This training will cover a vast array of shamanic practices and techniques. The underlying theme of the year will reinforce the teachings of being interconnected with all beings everywhere. Everything we practice will be rooted in this perspective.
You will work extensively with shamanic journeying, working with spirits to enhance our understanding of ourselves and the world.
Your own Power Animals
Upper World teachers
Spirits of Nature
and much more
You will learn about Divination – the art of listening to Nature in our waking reality to receive insight, wisdom, and guidance.
You will spend time with the Lower, Middle, and Upper Worlds, and understand each of their roles in the shamanic world.
You will also study shamanic healing tools, including Extractions, Soul Retrievals, and Power Animal Retrievals. You will learn how to use these techniques safely and appropriately to better your life and the lives of others.
Each class will consist of council, lecture, and experiences with each of the topics we cover. You will have homework between classes which will include both journeying and practical steps to ground your life in the shamanic way.
This truly is a powerful training that holds the potential to transform how you see yourself and the world.
