7 hours of workshop and practice
For millennia, humankind, through group ritual, trance and initiation, experienced direct relations with the Sacred. With the coming of organized religion and the onset of modern society, we, in the “developed” world, have, for the most part, lost this connection, connection with Spirit, connection with Nature, connection to the self. Through the ages, tribal, Shamanic cultures have practiced and kept the knowledge alive, knowledge which is now being shared once more.
The word, “Shaman” comes from the Tungus region of Siberia, where it means, “One who sees” and is defined as “a person who in some way, alters their consciousness and journeys to transcendent realms of Spirit, where they meet and interact with compassionate, healing energies (Spirits) and bring back knowledge, healing and wisdom for the benefit of themselves and their communities.
Shamanic practice does not have to be the sole preserve of the tribal Shaman, Shamanic journeying can be learned by anyone with a calling to learn and these workshops will give an introduction to the basic technique and chance to practice and gain enough experience to be able to continue using the technique alone.
You will be given an introduction into the Shamanic Cosmology of the three Worlds and the types of Spirit energies that inhabit them, then, using a drumbeat to alter the consciousness, participants will learn how to enter a “Shamanic state of consciousness” and journey into the “Non ordinary reality” of the transcendent realms.
You will connect with a Guardian Spirit / Power Animal and a Teacher / Guide, with whom you can build personal relationships and who will help and support you in your personal journeys of healing, learning and evolution. Participants will also be shown how to invoke and merge with your Guardian Spirit / Power Animal as a way to receive power (Spiritual vitality), healing and knowledge from them.
The package contains 2 workshops, the first, lasting approximately four hours, is where you will learn the technique of how to journey to the transcendent realms of the Upper and Lower Worlds and connect with your Guardian and teacher Spirits.
The second workshop, three hours long is for practice, exploration of the transcendent realms and their different levels and to ask questions of your teachers and to receive healing and wisdom. Together, these workshops will give participants enough practical experience to begin their own explorations and start building their own relationships with their Spirit guides and helpers.
