Advanced Shamanic Journeying:
and working with Spirit Allies in the Middle World
11-13 July (full moon), 2014
(Chalet Ganesha, Champéry, Residential Retreat)
led by Jacqueline Teoh
There are thousands of people who have learnt the method of shamanic journeying and yet few have been able to step from the basics and turn it into a more practical and dynamic practice where spiritual input is used for everyday problem-solving. How does one make that leap?
"Shamanic Journeying is not an “out of body experience.” When this particular alternate state is achieved the journeyer has “a foot in both worlds.” The senses in the physical body and the dreaming body are fully engaged and drawing in the multi-dimensional communication from the invisible world" - Christina Pratt, shamanic teacher and author.
The focus of this workshop is to help deepen one's shamanic journeying practice by exploring this common misunderstanding along with other misconceptions and expectations that inhibit beginning journeyers. In the first part of the workshop, we will use different techniques, rituals and ceremonies to help deepen the experience of shamanic journeying as an embodied practice.
We will also work on the following:
- Journeying beneath the surface, deep dives into the realms of dreams, hearts and the Unknown
- How to craft effective journeying questions
- How to work effectively with your helping spirits
- How to effectively access your own symbolic language
- What does it take to truly trust the guidance of your helping spirits and take action in your lives
Many of beginning journeyers work with power animals and spirit guides in the Upper World and Lower World for answers to their questions. In the second part of the workshop, we are going to explore the allies that we form in the Middle World that help manifest our strengths and weaknesses in the physical realm, and how to work effectively with these spirit allies. We will learn how to call on many sources of strength and empowerment in the Middle World specifically the elements and the directions to discover our personal allies for self empowerment and healing.
