Introduction to Shamanism and Shamanic Journeying
A Beginner's Training
Starting Tuesday, January 26th, 2021
Shamanism is the world's oldest spiritual tradition, dating back well over 100,000 years. It is a way of connecting with our helping spirits, with nature, and with the physical and spiritual realities in a deep, personal, and meaningful manner.
The shamanic journey is one of the classic ways that shamans and shamanic practitioners interact with the spiritual realms. The shaman enters an altered state of consciousness, most commonly through repetitious percussion (such as drumming), and allows their consciousness to journey into the unseen realms.
Through shamanic journeying, shamans and shamanic practitioners work directly with the helping spirits to divine helpful information, address the spiritual aspect of illness, preform healing ceremonies, and much more.
In shamanism, there are no gurus or outside authorities. You receive your own wisdom from the helping spirits. Shamanism is a path of direct revelation that allows us to discover the reality of spirits for ourselves.
In this highly experiential seven-week online training, you will be introduced to the path of shamanism, as well as to the practice of shamanic journeying. You will learn how you can partner with your helping spirits to bring valuable insight and spiritual healing to yourself, and if you are called, to others.
This class examines classic shamanic practices and understandings that were, and are, common to shamanic cultures worldwide, not any one specific culture's practices. Additionally, we will be using repetitious drumming and rattling, rather than vision plants, to enter into the state of consciousness needed to do shamanic work.
In addition to learning the above principles and techniques, you will connect with like-minded classmates, practice the material in a safe and loving online space, and receive access to a private Facebook group where experiences can be shared and questions can be asked.
Even if you cannot attend the live sessions, each class session will be recorded and sent to you after the live class concludes so that you can review the information at any time.
No experience with shamanism or a spiritual practice is necessary to participate in this course; all are welcome.
It is time for each of us to reclaim our right to receive our own guidance, and form our own relationships with, the spiritual realities. Being introduced to the path of shamanism and learning to work with shamanic journeying gives you a way to work with your helping spirits in a practical, loving, and healing way that benefits yourself, others, and all of life.
