Completion of this series is a prerequisite for the intermediate and advanced workshops as well as apprenticeship.

Opening Inner Doorways

This workshop is an introductory exploration of shamanic consciousness and journeying. Participants learn to create, maintain and work with the shamanic body in preparation for journeying to the upper, middle and lower worlds. The basic terminology and cosmology of shamanic practice is taught on the first evening. The balance of the workshop is experiential, focusing on active work with the shamanic body in alternate states of consciousness.

Medicine Body

The Medicine Body is one of the most powerful tools for the Shaman. It's foundation is the energy field that surrounds our physical bodies. This workshop focuses on the creation, maintenance and use of the Medicine Body for shamanic transformative and healing work. The workshop will include practical exercises in breathing, energy, conscious awareness and more.

Working With Spirits
Shamans live in a world that is invisible to the average person. It is a world of spirits – spirits of earth and plants and ancestors – all of which can become allies in the search for wholeness. This workshop brings you into contact with the spirit world, providing techniques to communicate and interact safely and effectively.

Dream Body
There are different ways to dream. This workshop works with the dreams in which we can journey in the three worlds in our Dream Body, finding answers and healing in our Dreaming. It also introduces dreaming techniques drawn from Tibetan shamanism that allow us to enter a dream while fully "awake."

The Shaman’s Touch parts I through IV
A series of intermediate workshops, focusing on the techniques of healing through use of sound, energy, vibration, intention and physical manipulation while in shamanic states of consciousness. The techniques are drawn from various tribal societies and include energy and vibrational healing; communication with spirits; extraction; soul retrieval; and the use of safe and effective boundaries and application of these techniques to the modern therapeutic practice.

stonesSoul/Power Retrieval
One of the classic techniques of the traditional shaman, this powerful tool promotes healing at all levels. This workshop covers the fundamentals of retrieval anywhere in the three worlds.

Healing the Invisible Wound
The invisible wound is one we all experience. It is the wound of separation from the Self, the Divine, each other, our ancestors and the earth. This is a more advanced workshop for those with some degree of experience in shamanic journeying and trancework. It focuses on the healing of this wound through the development of deeper connections with self, spirit, community and the divine.

Dance Your Shadows
In this workshop we seek to realize, reveal, recognize and integrate as much of our unknown self as possible. Drawing the parts of our selves that we don’t know out of the shadows and into our waking life. To do this, we will be confronting the issues which cut us off from our selves. Fear, shame, anger and other "negative" emotions will be explored and exercised. We will journey into the deep, dark places where we hide the parts of ourselves that we don’t want to acknowledge and bring them back with us.

The role of the Shaman often includes the creation and direction of ritual and ceremonies to support the people they work with, to provide healing, realization, movement or to express gratitude. This workshop introduces the fundamentals of these practices and focuses on the creation and use of the sweat lodge along with a pipe ceremony. Limit 12 participants.
