♦️Shamanism, Dying & Beyond Review
Participants learn how to deal with the issue of dying and the destiny of souls from a shamanic perspective. Experiences include learning further experiential journeys to explore after-death realms, complete unfinished business, help a dying person cross over, and practice in classic psychopomp work.
♦️Shamanic Dreamwork Review
Opportunity to explore the nature, meaning, and use of dreams among shamanic peoples, with dreamwork practices from a range of cultures. Researched and developed by Michael Harner, subjects to be covered include shamanic dream theory and big dreams, as well as dreams and the soul, spirits, shamanic journeys, the Dreamtime, and the vision quests. Practice in divining the meaning of dreams and applying the knowledge to contemporary life.
♦️Shamanic Training in Creativity Review
Creativity is so ancient that it is at once fundamental and complex, even a driving force in our lives. Shamanism brings a fresh approach to Westerners for cultivating their creative potential. In this workshop, based on years of research, participants will have the opportunity to practice their creativity using shamanic methods to solve problems for themselves and others.
♦️Shamanism & The Spirits of Nature Review
From ancient times, shamans have worked with the spirits of nature for healing, survival, and knowledge. By learning from the plants and animals, from the rocks and mountains, from the winds and waters, and from the sun, moon, and stars, shamans helped their peoples live in harmony with the universe. In a world now out of balance, the way of the shaman teaches us again how to respect nature, our Planet, and its inhabitants at a deep spiritual level. As our ancestors everywhere once knew, our survival depends on the survival of the other species. By working together intensively through shamanic journeys and other spiritual experiences, we dedicate ourselves to acting in both nonordinary and ordinary reality to restore and maintain our living Planet.
