Shamanism is humanity's oldest spiritual practice, a tradition for healing and problem solving. It is a way of maintaining balance in the individual, and between the individual and the rest of creation. Shamanism is not limited to Native Americans or other indigenous cultures. Northern Europe also has an ancient shamanic tradition, and we all have - as human beings - the ability to work shamanically.
During this basic introduction, participants will begin to touch some of the key ways practiced for thousands of years by shamans around the world. By learning to work with rattles, song, and nature you will find how it is possible to shift to into a shamanic consciousness and live with greater awareness. Here we experience how shamanism can empower our everyday being and touch the Spirit side of Life. In these days of global climate change, it is more important than ever that we learn to relate to the world as alive and full of soul.
Even though we meet online, you will experience connection to the sacred power of the Circle. Participants will be offered different exercises to try between meetings. There will be time to ask questions both in Zoom meetings and in the Facebook group, and receive support and inspiration for your personal path.
** Please note that on this course we will not be teaching shamanic drum journeys. In many other ways it is similar to the introduction course “The Shaman’s Journey”
The course is taught by Jonathan and Zara, in English.
This course is held as online meetings in a small workshop group of max 24 participants. You will be asked to try out personal work and exercises in between meetings to experience the practice. Please make sure you can participate fully in all sessions as well as the work in between.
We will meet via Zoom for a 3hr circle on three Thursdays in July:
* Meeting 1: 16 July
* Meeting 2: 23 July
* Meeting 3: 30 July
Thursday evenings, 19.00-22.00 Swedish time (CEST)
1500 SEK - the price includes online meetings, facebook feedback and supporting materials
To book, please email Zara: firstname.lastname@example.org
* Please be aware that once you book, there are no refunds.
Please only book this course if you are able to take part fully in all meetings and engage with the shamanic exercises in between sessions
You will need to connect to the Zoom meetings via a computer or tablet. In between meetings you will be given work to do at home as well as space on a dedicated facebook group for participant sharing and teacher comments. If you prefer not to use facebook, it is still possible to join in with the course through the Zoom meetings only.
If you have never taken part in an online course, it is quite simple and you will get technical guidance to help you prepare. This is a different way of meeting but very powerful in its own way.
