Shamanic & Ancestral Healing, Conversations with Mother Mary

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
A portion of your tuition will support the First Nations Development Institute. 
Scholarships are available. Please contact me directly to inquire.

Mikki is an incredible teacher. I think anyone taking the course would learn something new and important for themselves and their journey, no matter who you are! ~Maranda, New York
A full and rich course with an overview of shamanism as well as detail for some specific practices I can take away. Open, frank discussions and all carefully and lovingly held by Mikki. ~Participant Fall ’21
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. I would definitely recommend this course to other folks who are interested in learning about Shamanism. 5 stars all the way!  ~CG, Canada
Mikki has a huge depth of knowledge and experience of shamanism, it’s a privilege to have access to this on the course. Mikki combines this knowledge with her warmth and sense of fun to create a wonderful safe and open space for the group to share. Joining this group has been a deeply meaningful experience for me.  ~Participant Fall’ 21
This course opened the floodgates for me to finally understand shamanism and my own connections to the natural and Spirit worlds… Clear, real, and honoring… so rich and dynamic that we did not want it to end. ~Lindsay, New York
