Explore Shamanic Consciousness in Bali

1~11 March 2017: Northern Bali

Be on the cutting edge of a 40,000-year-old technology…

Over tens of thousands of years our ancient ancestors developed a remarkable system of methods for healing, personal empowerment, and problem-solving — known today as “shamanism.” Neither dogma nor religion, it is humankind’s oldest technology for exploring the relationship between us and all of creation. Shamans were, in fact, the world’s first scientists. Their laboratory was non-ordinary reality; their methodology involved accessing this reality through the shamanic journey; their mission was to ensure the survival of the tribe. In these times of chaos, crisis, and hope, shamanism is a reservoir of wisdom that is as relevant to our survival now as it was to our forebears hundreds of generations ago.

      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?”     —Michael Harner, author, The Way of the Shaman

Four 2-day Core Shamanism Courses!

The Way of the Shaman: Shamanic Journeying, Power, and Healing

The Basic Workshop in Core Shamanism: 1-2 March 2017 During the Basic experiential workshop, participants are introduced to core shamanism, the universal and near-universal basic 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.  Practice includes comparisons by participants of their discoveries in shamanic journeys as well as being introduced to shamanic divination and healing. They are also provided with methods for journeying to meet and study with their own individual spirit helpers in nonordinary 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 contemporary daily life to help heal oneself, others, and the Planet.

Advanced courses: (The Way of the Shaman basic course is prerequisite)

Shamanic Extraction Healing Training4-5 March 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. They 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. The training is not designed for people looking for personal healing.

Shamanism, Dying, and Beyond7-8 March 2017

Participants learn how to deal with the issue of 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, helping a person to cross over, and classic psychopomp work.

Power Soul Retrieval Training: 10-11 March 2017   Soul Portion Retrieval is one of the most powerful shamanic healing practices. It aims to return portions of the soul that may have moved away from us 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.   **Extraction Healing  and the Shamanism, Dying and Beyond advanced courses are prerequisite for this course.
