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 indigenous cultures. Northern Europe also has an ancient shamanic tradition, and we all have - as human beings - the ability to connect with the Spirits.
During this basic introduction, participants will experience some of the key ways practiced for thousands of years by shamans around the world. You will learn to work with Rattles, Song, and Nature through a range of practical exercises. They will help you discover how it is possible to shift to into a more expanded consciousness and live with greater awareness.
This intensive and experiential course helps to build a solid foundation for any Spirit work. The exercises are simple but deep depending on how you engage with them. The course shows you how to bring a regular concrete practice into your daily life and how to take it further. We will also explore essential elements and building blocks of shamanic work, including asking for help, discipline, trust, ethics and working with intention.
The shamanic way of life can empower us every day and help reconnect us to a more soulful way of being. In these days of global climate change and exploitation of natural resources, it is more important than ever that we learn to remember and relate to the world as alive and existing as both spirit and matter.
Even though we meet online, you will experience connection to the sacred power of the Circle andtake part in community ceremonies. There will be time given to ask questions, both in Zoom meetings and in the Facebook group, so you can receive support and inspiration for your personal path.
** Please note that on this course we will not be teaching how to undertake the shamanic drum journey. 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 workshop group of max 24 participants. You will be asked to do essential personal work and exercises in between meetings to experience the practice.

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.
