SHAMANIC COUNSELLING 1

This practice is a spiritual counselling method based on classic shamanism. The dual purpose of the course is to teach in-depth the basic techniques of shamanic counselling, as well as to deepen each participant's felt understanding of his own shamanic journeys.

The shamanic counsellor works by teaching her client to make drum journeys for himself, so he can meet his own spirit helpers and teachers - and then the Spirits become the true counsellors. The shamanic counsellor does not interpret the client’s journey or tell them what it means, but instead asks questions to help unlock the deeper teachings. She uses her own personal shamanic experience to help the client formulate journey missions and receive the power, and holds a clear sacred space for the work to happen in.

Participants will work in pairs, both as a client and then as a counsellor. You will learn how to work with the differences between 'help' and 'advice' journeys, and strengthen your journeying skills to both the Lower and Upper Worlds. You will learn how to find and formulate clear and relevant missions, as this is a key factor - a focused mission helps to give a powerful journey.

The essence of shamanic counselling is to help others recover personal power by enabling them to have a direct connection to the Spirits. In a way, the Shamanic Counsellor is a witness, and their main role is to listen deeply and nurture the relationship between client and Spirits. Another important part of the training is to experience being a client, and as such, each participant will have the opportunity to explore genuine personal issues and deepen their relationship with their own Spirit helpers.

This intensive course is designed both for those who are interested in working as shamanic counsellors to help others, and for those who want to use the techniques to deepen and clarify their own personal journeying practice at home. An early application is recommended and you will be asked to do some preparation before the course begins.

Participants must have completed introductory course The Shaman's Journey or agreed equivalent. You must be experienced in shamanic drum journeying and have a clear connection with a Lower World Helper and an Upper World Teacher.
