Shamanic practitioners course details:
The shamanic practitioners course takes place over 6 sets of 3 days and explores an in depth journey around the Medicine Wheel thus finding out more about ourselves and who we really are. As we journey together through the directions, North, South, East and West in greater detail we will shed the skin of our mental, emotional, spiritual and physical baggage that no longer serves us. In doing this together, as we transform from the caterpillar to the butterfly, we learn and remember techniques in healing from the oldest traditions on earth.
The shamanic practitioners course includes:
• Healing techniques as we travel through the directions
• Deeper journey work to heal ourselves, the earth and others
• Connecting with Nature – the tree people, the stone people, the Earth people etc. and working with the elements
• Power and soul retrieval and extraction work
• Munay Ki rites – initiations into the shamans path
• Community and distance healing
• Fire and other ceremony/ rituals
• Drumming techniques
• Learning to work with shamanic tools
• Introduction to divining/dowsing
• Spirit release
• Connecting you to your lineage of your Ancestors
• Connection to your soul group
• Stalking awareness
• Vision quest
• Whatever else spirit dictates
• Sacred fire ceremony.
