30 January-1 February (one place left) and 6-8 February (wait list), 2015

led by Jacqueline Teoh
"Shamanic journeying is the inner art of traveling to the "invisible worlds" beyond ordinary reality to retrieve information for change in any area of your life - from spirituality and health to work and relationships" - Sandra Ingerman, shamanic teacher and author.
The focus of this workshop will be an introduction to the classic shamanic journey - the most ancient method (over 100’000 years) used by our ancestors to explore the hidden universe and access information to bring healing to the community.
Aided by drumming (or any other percussion) to alter the states of consciousness and safely experience the shamanic state of consciousness (SSC), participants are introduced to the basic journeying method to explore the spiritual reality (the shaman’s map) and to experience the connectedness with Nature. They will also discover their own individual spiritual allies and teachers and to study with them. Many have awakened to their natural spiritual abilities through shamanic journeying and this method can be used to empower an individual in restoring spiritual power and health. Participants will also learn how to apply shamanism in daily contemporary life to help themselves, others and the Earth. This workshop is a hands-on experiential workshop with practices that encourage participants to have direct access to spiritual revelation and to share their own discoveries and experiences with others. It is also an introductory workshop in shamanic healing (power animal retrieval), shamanic divination, power dance, community healing as well as the basics of creating sacred space. A fire ceremony/ritual and a ceremonial encounter with Spirit will be held on Saturday evening.
No prior experience or training in shamanism is required. This course does NOT certify a person to be a shaman. There is no such thing as certifying shamans. It is the successful results in shamanic healing that make a person recognized by his/her clients and community as a shaman or shamanic healer, and even that status can change at any time according to a practitioner’s relationship with the helping spirits.
This workshop is a pre-requisite for more advanced shamanic workshops.
