THE BASIC WORKSHOP IN CORE SHAMANISM (WEEKEND)
The Way of the Shaman®
Shamanic Journeying, Power and Healing
During the Basic experiential workshop, participants are introduced to core shamanism, the universal, near-universal, and common methods of the shaman to enter non ordinary reality for problem solving and healing. Particular emphasis is on the classic shamanic journey, one of the most remarkable visionary methods used by humankind to explore the hidden universe otherwise known mainly through myth and dream. Initiation into shamanic journeying is aided by drumming and other techniques for experiencing the shamanic state of consciousness. and for awakening dormant spiritual abilities, including connections with Nature.
Participants will learn how to awake dormant abilities, such as communicating with Nature for divination purposes and they are also provided with methods for journeying to meet and study with their own individual spirit helpers in non ordinary reality, a classic step in shamanic practice. During the workshop there will be the opportunity to share and compare the discoveries made in shamanic journeys.
On a broader level participants learn how the journey is utilized to restore spiritual power and health, and how shamanism can be applied in contemporary daily life to help heal oneself, others, and the Planet.
Completion of this two-day workshop qualifies participants to take advanced FSS workshops.
