What is shamanism?
Shamanism is the world’s oldest system of spiritual healing and divination, practiced by indigenous peoples all over the world. The shaman makes ecstatic flights into the world of the spirits to obtain information and bring back healing. Shamanism is an effective way to expand your awareness and access spiritual guidance directly for yourself.
More background on shamanism is available here.
What part of the class is FREE?
The Journey Initiation Class is taught in four sessions - either four evening sessions, or two days with a morning and afternoon session each day.
During the first session, we cover the basics of what shamanism is, and how to journey - including a practice journey to the lower world to actually meet your power animal. This part is FREE! It will give you a taste of what shamanism is, and help you decide whether you want to take the rest of the workshop or not. (Almost everyone takes all four sessions.)
What about the rest of the class?
The second session gives more information on how to journey and get answers to your questions. It includes a journey to the upper world to meet a spirit teacher in human form. The first two sessions make up Part 1, which covers all the basics of what shamanism is, and how to journey - including experience doing actual shamanic journeys.
Part 2 covers how to use the journey, along with the help of the spirits, for healing and divination - including hands-on practice and a simple but profound healing you can do for others.
Most of our advanced classes require that you know how to journey to both the upper and lower worlds - Part 1 is sufficient training for this. However, Part 2 is highly recommended since you get a taste of what it's like to do shamanic healing and divination for someone else.
If you decide to take either the rest of Part 1, or the entire workshop, then you would pay as usual. (See registration, below.)
