About Shamanic Journeying
Shamanism is the belief that everything in life has a unique energy. It is a way of life, a knowing that all beings on earth are connected, and that the world is a reflection of our own selves. (“As above, so below. As within, so without.”)
The physical world brings much joy, as well as many challenges that affect us individually and collectively. From a shamanic perspective great pain, stress, and trauma brings loss on energetic levels, and shamanic work brings balance and understanding on physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels.
Shamanic Journeying is a spiritual technique, like meditation or Qi Gong, which uses drumming to access the theta state, a meditative state that reduces stress, awakens intuition, increases creativity, and enhances learning. It is a way to connect to your Spiritual Helpers for guidance, reconnecting you to your light, your “godspark,” your True Self, to restore your personal power to engage more fully in life. Many have shared after a journeying session that they feel “back home,” “whole,” “alive” once again.
This experiential workshop will cover:
Core vs Cultural shamanism
Finding & gaining insights from your Spirit Guides
Healing ethics, protocols, and working with others
