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.
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 clients 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.
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.
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.
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.
