COURSES
We have now updated the course programme on shamanism.dk, with everything we have plans about so far.
Two main pieces of news are a new course developed by Jonathan , and Annette's first book gone to print.

NEW COURSE WITH JONATHAN - SHAMANIC COUNSELLING 2: Shamanic Guidance
For the past seven years, I have been developing what I call Shamanic Guidance. This work has grown out of shamanic counselling, but also contains some of the elements of supervision, which many people have asked for. Many shamanic counsellors, myself included, have experienced that some clients wish to go even deeper than their shamanic counselling work has taken them, and at the same time feel the need for a mentor. The question then arises, how to do this without taking power away from the client?

Within the shamanic guidance framework, the counsellor/guide plays a more active role than in Shamanic Counselling, by suggesting a direction for the journeyer, a mission for a journey to the Spirit World. This can only happen if the guide has heard his client. The work of shamanic guidance is based on the spiritual practice of deep listening - that is, listening with the heart, listening without judgment, listening from a place of silence. It also involves speaking from the heart, that is, truthfully and without an agenda.

As always, the Spirits do the real teaching, the real guiding. It is still up to the journeyer to hear, and understand, what they are saying. The shamanic guide, like any true mentor, does not give the answers, nor does he have them. But he can show the paths available. I have already taught Shamanic Counselling 2 as a pilot course. Many of those who took part in it agreed that it was the most profound and intensive course they had ever experienced. Now it is a course which I will be teaching on a regular basis, and the first time will be this coming August, in beautiful Väddö. See course description here: Shamanic Counselling 2

ANNETTE’S FIRST BOOK GONE TO PRINTING
In Feburary I finished writing a book Jorden Synger: Naturens Kraft og Nordiske Rødder (The Earth Sings: The Power of Nature and Nordic Roots). The book deals with how we can meet nature’s power and wisdom, and opens the door to the enchanted forest which is right here and now. It is told through myths and tales of Scandinavia, showing the way to the Earth through Nordic tradition. The book is written together with journalist Bente Møller Sørensen, and comes out on May 1.

We plan to have it translated into English as soon as possible, but have yet to find the right translator and publishing house.
And then I will go back and finish writing the next book, with the worktitel SEJD – Nordic Shamanism and magic
