Bali Women Green rice

Bali, Indonesia: 6~16 September 2017

Shamans are often called “seers” or “people who know” in their tribal languages, because they are involved in a system of knowledge based on firsthand experience. Shamanism is not a belief system. It’s based on personal experiments conducted to heal and to get information. In fact, if shamans don’t get results, they will no longer be used by people in their tribe. People ask me, “How do you know if somebody’s a shaman?” I say, “It’s simple. Do they journey to other worlds? And do they perform miracles?”

The Way of the Shaman® – Shamanic Journeying, Power, and Healing

Four 2-day Programs of Core Shamanism in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia

The Way of the Shaman basic course:  6-7 September 2017

In the Basic experiential workshop participants are introduced to core shamanism, the near-universal methods of the shaman to enter non-ordinary reality for problem solving and healing. Particular emphasis is on the classic shamanic journey, one of the most remarkable visionary methods used by humankind to explore the hidden universe otherwise known mainly through myth and dream. Participants are initiated into shamanic journeying, aided by drumming and other techniques for experiencing the shamanic state of consciousness and for awakening dormant spiritual abilities, including connections with Nature. You are also introduced to shamanic divination and healing, and methods for journeying to meet and study with their own individual spirit helpers in non-ordinary reality, a classic step in shamanic practice. Participants learn how the journey is utilized to restore spiritual power and health, and how shamanism can be applied in today’s world.

∆ ADVANCED COURSES (The Way of the Shaman basic course is prerequisite)

Shamanic Extraction Healing Training: 9-10 September 2017

Participants are initiated into the extraction method of healing, including how to see, sense, and remove localized illness and pain connected to spiritual factors. This is an important part of shamanic healing training. You will also learn how shamanic practitioners can work in partnership to increase the effectiveness of this work. The Extraction Healing Training workshop is designed exclusively for people who want to bring shamanic healing work into their practice with others. It is not designed for people looking for personal healing.

Shamanism, Dying & Beyond:  12-13 September 2017

Participants explore dying and the destiny of souls from a shamanic perspective. The workshop is both for those who wish to learn for themselves, and for those who wish to help others who are in terminal situations or who have already passed on. Experiences to be undertaken include learning how to become experientially familiar with the after-death realms, tracking a person using shamanic journeying, completing unfinished business, and helping a person to cross over or transition into transcendent realms (classic psychopomp work).

Power Soul Retrieval:  15-16 September 2017

Soul Retrieval is one of the most powerful shamanic healing practices. We’ll learn to return portions of the soul that may have moved away or dissociated as a result of trauma or any situation in which we were unprepared to feel the associated emotions. Shamans believe that soul loss is a common source of illness, depression, and chronic fatigue, as well as a variety of mental and emotional disorders.  In this advanced course, we will learn how to find and retrieve these portions for clients in a healing session.  **Both Extraction Healing and the Shamanism, Dying & Beyond advanced courses are prerequisite..
