Shamanism is our most ancient spiritual tradition. It has been practiced for tens of thousands of years in every part of the world where humans have settled. It is the spiritual practice that the overwhelming majority of our ancestors practiced, going way back into human history. It has seen cultures rise and fall. The fact that it has survived and thrived is testament to its truth, power and usefulness. It is in itself not a religion, and need not be incompatible with any religious practice.
Throughout its long and varied history, shamanism has taken many forms, appropriate to the culture it has found itself in. Therapeutic Shamanism combines the principles of shamanic work with those of modern counselling and psychotherapy. It is highly relevant to modern life and its dis-eases. It provides an easily-learnt tool kit of techniques and methods that are profoundly useful for personal healing, help with life issues, raising
self-awareness, personal and spiritual development, and much more.
This experiential course covers the basics of shamanic practice. It is often an eyeopening and life-changing experience that opens up a rich and amazing world of possibilities. Participants will be shown simple yet profound techniques to enter shamanic reality to reconnect to their own spirituality. No prior experience is necessary.
The course is taught in a grounded way and rooted in personal experience. The day
includes the history of shamanism, the key concepts of the shamanic universe, how to enter a shamanic ‘journey’, finding your ‘power animal’ and the basics of how to journey for other people.
