Shamanism 101

January 30, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$200

SATURDAYS JANUARY 30 – FEBRUARY 27 2021

Where can I start learning about shamanism?

Which course should I sign up for? There’s so many choices now.

I feel called to learn more about healing but I don’t know exactly what that means for me.

Can modern Western people be shamans? How do you tell the real ones from the fakers?


If these questions have crossed your mind, join me for Shamanism 101, an accessible five-part course and intimate conversation. With weekly Zoom gatherings and thought-provoking emails PLUS bonus resources, you’ll have a smart and solid foundation to take with you— into a full shamanic healing course, into your existing work and spiritual practice, or simply as a stand-alone experience. 

Not everyone is called to be a healer, but many of us are called, as Yoruba elder Yeye Teish says, “to recover our indigenous mind.”  This is really at the heart of my own experience of shamanism — beyond the myths and marketing we see everywhere today.

If you’re curious about what shamanism holds for you, we’d love to have you join this unique circle for rich discussion, transformative practices, and like-minded community. (Read what people are saying below.)

This isn’t a training in “how to be a shaman”: it’s a no-nonsense conversation about shamanism’s context, history, and relevance to us as modern people. And no questions are off-limits.

It’s the course I wish I had taken before I committed to years of trainings.

 

Topics we’ll explore together include:

~What is a shaman? Who are the “real” shamans?

~Sharing respectfully versus cultural appropriation 

~The energy body, trauma, healing, and perception 

~Ritual, ceremony, and rites of passage: how and why to make a ceremony 

~What’s in the bag? Stones, drums, rattles, feathers, and more

~Spells, consent, and protection: energy “hygiene” 

~Shamanic journeying, power animals, and your personal connection to the unseen

 

You’ll also receive

~A resource list with my favorite books, films, and media to continue your studies

~A discounted private healing session with me

~A recorded mp3 drumming track for your own journeys

~Email support between live sessions (which will be recorded)

~ A supportive and curious community of fellow seekers

 

This intro to shamanism happens SATURDAYS January 30- February 27, 2-4pm via Zoom, with email “homework” and support throughout. Questions? Feel free to reach out anytime: hello@mikkibaloy.com.

A portion of the proceeds from this course will support the First Nations Development Fund.

Praise for Shamanism 101:

Mikki is a caring, informative, approachable teacher and made this topic easy to understand, yet deep enough for people who have dabbled in shamanism. Highly recommended! ~ LM, Westwood, NJ

This was a great course with a great community. Each session was informative and insightful while also being supportive and grounding. A great introductory course that gives the right foundation to start asking yourself questions about what’s next and how to integrate. Five stars all the way! ~CG, United Kingdom

Mikki offers a grounded, pragmatic space to talk about some of the most problematic parts of shamanism, as well as constructive, respectful ways to continue in every day life. ~Tracy, Westwood, NJ

Mikki combines her depth of knowledge and experience with her warmth and sense of fun to create a wonderful, safe, and open space. Joining this group has been a deeply meaningful experience for me. ~Participant

If you have, or ever had, any interest at all in shamanism I highly recommend this course. ~HL Ferguson, Philadelphia PA
