Online Workshops:

Power Soul Retrieval
 
Saturday June 4 10am-5:30pm-Sunday June 5 10am-1:30pm

 

**Prerequisite: Extraction and its prerequisites (see shamanism.org for more information)

Learning shamanism is not just a matter of acquiring methods, but also of increasing spiritual power and knowing how to use it. From the shamanic point of view, people who are not spiritually "power-filled" are prone to illness, accidents, and misfortune. Anyone who has had a traumatic experience may lose a portion of their soul, of their spiritual essence. There are also other reasons this may occur. In this workshop, participants will learn about soul loss and soul retrieval from a shamanic perspective. There will be a particular emphasis on the importance of shamanic power to do successful soul retrieval. Participants will also learn how to re-empower a client's soul after it has been returned so that the client is once again spiritually power-filled, leading to greater health and well-being. This soul retrieval training is based on worldwide core principles and methods. It does not require Western psychological perspectives and practices.

Cost is $210 for this workshop

Shamanic Divination in Practice
Saturday June 25th, 10am-6pm

**Prerequisite: The Shamanic Journey (online) or the Basic Workshop (in person)

The skilled practice of shamanic divination, the process of consulting the spirits for knowledge, is an essential aspect of shamanic healing and of bringing the wisdom of the helping spirits to bear on personal, local, and global issues. This workshop offers students opportunities to practice methods for contacting their compassionate spirit helpers, particularly through the shamanic journey, and to enhance their abilities to form on-topic questions and interpret the messages received. Participants will also experience classic shamanic ways to build and nurture strong relationships with their own spirits.

Cost is $140 for this workshop

The Shamanic Worldview: Everything is Alive
Saturday July 9th, 10am-6pm

**Prerequisite: The Shamanic Journey AND Shamanic Divination in Practice (online), OR the Basic Workshop (in person)

The shamanic worldview underpins the ethical and effective practice of shamanism. Experiential knowledge of this worldview leads to a profound awareness of the sacred nature of our world and an awakening of compassion, resulting in a deep desire to relieve pain and suffering and restore balance and harmony.

Using journeying and experiential shamanic methods, in this online workshop you will have the opportunity to personally explore and experience the fundamental aspects of the shaman's worldview:

  • Everything is alive and has spirit

  • Unity: We are part of, connected with, the totality of nature

  • Independent spirituality, the shaman as "one who knows"

  • The implications of these principles related to permission when doing shamanic healing and divination

Cost is $140 for this workshop
