“A perfect class for the times we are living in.” Participant Spring ’21
A five-week live ecourse via Zoom, Sundays 1pm-3pm EST in October
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? Join me for rarely discussed practices, concepts, and context.
Based on my own experiences over twelve years of dedicated study, on-the-ground experience, life-altering insights, 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.
October 2: 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.
October 9: We’ll dive into the basics of shamanic healing, including an overview of the variety in shamanic skills. I’ll describe the “three Rs” of shamanic healing and how they apply to your daily life. Experience the potency of medicine songs to close the day.
October 16: The oft-overlooked and 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.
October 23: 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.
October 30: Ceremony, ritual, and rites of passage: we’ll examine our own experience with these ideas and consider 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 to you for three months after the course ends.
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
