Shamaanin matka - Shaman's Journey

Shaman’s Journey – basic workshop

Prerequisite for most other advanced workshops

Shamanism is humanity’s oldest spiritual practice, a tradition for healing and problem solving. It is a way of maintaining balance in the individual, and between the individual and the rest of creation. During this basic course, participants will be introduced to some of the main ideas and methods used for thousands of years by shamans around the world. Shamanism is not limited to Native Americans or other exotic cultures. Northern Europe also has an ancient shamanic tradition, and we all have – as human beings – the ability to work shamanically.

The main emphasis of the course is on the shaman’s journey to the world of the spirits. Participants will learn to use the traditional methods of singing, dancing, and drumming to shift to shamanic consciousness, meet their spirit helpers, and explore the spirit world. In this other reality, one can gain power and knowledge for oneself and others, and touch the spirit side of Nature. Basic shamanic healing will also be taught. In the circle, we will share the experiences of the journeys, and learn how to understand them. We will look closely at the ethics of shamanic work, and see how shamanism can empower our everyday lives.

These workshops are teachings in shamanic techniques, the shamanic way and worldview. The foundation is an animistic worldview with purposeful intent on multi-cultural gleanings. They are not intended as therapy courses-although we do work with ourselves. Christiana threads together what she has gathered/lived/learned over 25 yrs of shamanic healing experiences as well as all that has occurred before! As always, Spirit will guide us and tailor-make this workshop just for those who gather together at this time.

This is a drug-free (alcohol also) workshop.
