Experience the transformative power of Shamanic practices and learn how to guide and share these healing practices with others. In our busy urban world, it is common to feel disconnected from life—from ourselves, others, nature and time. Shamanic practices can reset our inner and outer connections, empowering us to live a life of love, peace, vitality and joy.
In this course, you will discover and practice the transformative power of Core Shamanism. Learning healing methods drawn from ancient practices from all over the world, you will restore your own inherent personal power. Throughout the courses, you will be exploring and nurturing your connection to nature, journeying outside of time and space, and, going beyond ego, you will experience your true divine Self, thus manifesting your reality.
Shamanic methods are drawn from Core shamanism, including South American traditions and ancient practices from other parts of the world. This is a practice of direct revelation and does not draw from one culture or people. Learning and proficiency are promoted and nourished through small group size and close supervision.
At the end of the 16 classes, you will have the knowledge and tools to begin your own practice in this beautiful modality. More importantly, you will find a deeper connection to yourself and the unconditional love of your helping spirits.
The training is divided into four modules (each module is 4 days)
SOUTH Module: SATURDAYS/ Jan 18, Feb 15, March 14, April 25
Shedding the past so that you stop reliving your stories. You will learn the illumination process (to clear imprints of karma and disease from your energy body), power animal retrieval, sand paintings, and divination (obtaining information from spiritual sources).
NORTH Module: SUNDAYS/ Jan 19, Feb 16, March 15, April 26
Releasing your ego to live in peace with creation. You will learn to heal your original wounding and traumas with soul retrieval (two methods), how to dissolve the many faces of ego, and how to let go of fate and choose your destiny.
WEST (Saturdays beginning in May) Dates to be determined
Healing your ancestral lineage and stepping out of fear and anger so that you quit attracting toxic people and situations. You will learn how to extract spiritual intrusions, release attached entities, and transform inner demons into allies.
EAST (Sundays beginning in May) Dates to be determined
Manifesting your dreams using intention and energy. You will learn how to assist those who are passing beyond this life, and how to create your reality.
It is recommended to start with the North or South modules, but not required. Students may start at any of the directions, but will need to complete all four to receive their certification. It is also an option to take two modules simultaneously (Sat/Sun).
