SACRED CEREMONY - online course

Ceremony and ritual are an essential part of all shamanic traditions. Sometimes it is easy to see them mainly as large events used for special occasions, but it is also possible to bring this beautiful way of being into your daily reality.

The focus of this online course is to help you open to the power of simple everyday ceremony, wherever you are on your path. By understanding some essential elements and steps, you can begin to build it into a regular practice. Small familiar actions can be transformed into sacred actions through intention. In this way we experience Life as the Ceremony it is.

During the training we will look at different types of everyday ceremonies and rituals and the situations where they are helpful. We will explore what is important when creating and holding them, including the role of Song and Music, composing Altars, and ways of opening Sacred Space. We will also touch on the issue of cultural appropriation and how to work with ceremony in ways that are respectful and honouring.

The course is held as webinar-style zoom meetings with a combination of teaching, guided meditation, individual and group ceremony. In between meetings you will be offered personal work to do as well as a dedicated facebook group for participant sharing and teacher comments. You will be given examples and exercises to do at home to help you experience different possibilities and ways to stay connected to ceremony after the course. 

This course is open to all, no previous experience is necessary. It is helpful both for people who want to be introduced to ceremony and for those who have been working with it for years. Wherever you are on your path, you can learn more.
