Shamanic Training Workshops

 

“Shamans are often called ‘seers’ or ‘people who know’ in their tribal languages, because they are involved in a system of knowledge based on firsthand experience. Shamanism is not a belief system. It’s based on personal experiments conducted to heal and to get information. In fact, if shamans don’t get results, they will no longer be used by the people in their tribe. People ask me ‘How do you know if somebody is a shaman?’ I say, ‘It’s simple. Do they journey to other worlds? And do they perform miracles?’ “

Michael Harner,  “The Way of the Shaman”.

 

Introduction

Where better than the lush and sacred jungles of Central America to allow yourself to relax enough to begin to hear the hidden secrets of Nature revealed in the rustle of the trees or the fragrance of the flowers? Learn to relate to the tides, the rhythms, the pulse of the Earth, to experience a One-ness with it and with the source of One’s own being.

Allow yourself to reawaken your sense of wonder and awe at the Magnificence of our Beautiful Mother Earth, and by coming into alignment with the Earth’s forces, the natural laws of the universe, and with the Self, learn to both heal yourself and to share that healing with others, and by so doing , to touch your own life and the lives of others, and even the Earth itself with Beauty.

 

 

The Shaman Path Series

 

SHAMANIC HEALING TRAINING

WEEK ONE – LIFE’S SPIRALS

In this 5-day intensive workshop we will learn core shamanic techniques of empowerment, ecstasy, self-discovery and healing, with which to heal yourself and others and open you to connect deeply with the Spirit of Mother Earth. Looking towards our centre from the perspective of the spiritual warrior, we first learn to heal the shadow parts of ourselves in order to use our Whole selves to heal others.

We will learn to journey to other planes of existence in order to seek help and healing. We will learn about the basic core tools on the path and we will open ourselves to Mother Earth and the secrets of Nature, extending our senses into clairvoyance and see-ing. We will use healing techniques like regression and kinesiology/acupressure to heal both ourselves and others, remembering to blend seriousness of intent with fun and laughter.

The programme will include:

Energy awareness
Kinesiology
Regression
Fetching a Power Animal
Connecting with Mother Earth
Healing Techniques
Acupressure

WEEK THREE – ENTER THE DRAGON

We will connect with dragons, work with the runes and learn some spells and sutras in Dragon language. We will connect with The Faery kingdom, a source of love and natural magik that will help us reach beyond the limitations of the rational mind. We will learn the magical use of herbs, charms and dancing things into manifestation.

We will learn to work with the dark forces of the unconscious mind, including the dark elves and their runes. Accepting our darkness allows us to break through many limitations and access deeper reserves of power. The subconscious mind does not pay too much attention to anything it cannot verify with the senses. Ritual provides the sensory stimulation needed to make our programming work, as well as a symbolic doorway into the unconscious. Within the framework of ritual, any systems you chose to work with can be brought together.

WEEK FOUR – THE ACTIVE SIDE OF INFINITY

This week we will work with Qi Gong and Toltec Magical Passes.

 

QI GONG

About 800 years ago Chang Sen Fen founded the original Tai Chi Chuan 13 movement form for self-defence. He also created a second short form that applied Tai Chi for Enlightenment rather than self-defence. This secret, easy to learn form, Wu Ji Gong, is designed to capture the ‘subtle breath’ (“Qi”) flow of Heaven and Earth and fuse it in the human body. Gathering Chi inward to the core of our being, in graceful, beautiful, effortless spirals.

 

TOLTEC MAGICAL PASSES

Moving still further into our collective past we find a truly archaic system of energetical movements left to us by the Toltecs, a powerful race of Warriors and Brujos (Sorcerors) who inhabited Mesoamerica 10,000 years ago. They Dreamed and devised a vast system of energy work which they called Magical Passes, designed to gather and redistribute vital energy and to harness and focus Intent.
