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
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?
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.
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
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 natures 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.
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
