A five-week live ecourse via Zoom
“A perfect class for the times we are living in.” Participant Spring ’21
What are we really talking about when we talk about shamanism? Why are so many modern people interested in this path, and how can we engage conscientiously?
Based on my own experiences over fourteen years of dedicated study, public practice, and mistakes (yup, I’ll share those, too), our time will include multi-media teaching and plenty of time for Q&A. Between live gatherings, you’ll receive non-overwhelming emails with resources, recordings, and exercises to try at home.
Class 1: What are shamans? How do you know the “real deal” from pop-shamanic-charlatans? Explore the global reach of these practices and academic understandings of the role of the shaman. Enjoy a guided meditation and get to know your cohort.
Class 2: We’ll dive into the basics of shamanic healing, including an overview of the variety of shamanic skills. I’ll describe the “three Rs” of shamanic healing as I see it and how they apply to your daily life. Medicine songs close the day.
Class 3: The nuanced subject of cultural appropriation. As modern, western-minded people, how can we engage in traditional practices with sensitivity and respect? Plus, cultivating relationships with our own blood ancestors.
Class 4: A primer on ritual safety, energy hygiene, and working with integrity. This class is a must if you plan to train in any healing modality– and even if you don’t.
Class 5: Ceremony, ritual, and rites of passage: we’ll examine our own experiences and learn how and when to create them for ourselves. Our final class will include time for reflection and ways to follow up.
Live classes will be recorded and available after the classes end.
You’ll also receive:
- A shamanic healing session discount
- A robust list of resources (film, books, and more) for further study
- A drum track to accompany your home journey practice
- Access to a private Facebook group to keep in touch with all S101 students internationally
- Email support between classes
