A small movement has grown to answer a need for healing the spirit and soul. It was born of the reclamation of traditional shamanic practices, a practice that involves communicating with spirits and entities to help people recover from damage caused by stress and trauma.
In order to accomplish the task, a shaman or spirit worker acts as an intermediary–communicating with spirits on behalf of the one seeking healing. The process calls for the shaman to journey, in most cases, into the realm of spirits and other dimensions to retrieve information and facilitate healing.
Healing happens in many ways. A few examples of work a shaman or spirit worker may perform on the recipients behalf: retrieving lost soul and body-parts (parts of ourselves dropped in times of trauma and stress), healing ancestral wounds, clearing entities attached to physical spaces and/or people; addressing issues of soul purpose or power, past-life and shadow work (dark parts of ourselves that we wish to ignore).
The goal of this course is to gain personal experience in and an understanding of the spirit world, and to wake up a healing process in us, while learning skills to help other. What is particularly nice about it is the fact that it is a facilitated course with peer support.
This course is designed for many levels of practitioner, from the beginner, to those who have experience. And it is different in many ways from the one I ran before.
Throughout our 4 weeks of work together, we will:
-learn journeying, and gain experience traveling and receiving information in other dimensions from power animals, spirit guides, and plants
-learn space and energy body clearing techniques
-explore the practice of organ system or body part retrieval
Here are course details with a brief outline.
