Intro to Core Shamanism

The Way of the Shaman: Basic Workshop - Intro to Core Shamanism Location: Calgary When: Saturday, August 25, 2012 to Monday, August 27, 2012 at 9:00 am - 5:00 pm Contact: Wade Email: WebSite: Shamanic Journeying, Power, & Healing During this Basic experiential workshop, participants are introduced to core shamanism, the universal and near-universal basic methods of the shaman to enter non-ordinary reality for problem solving and healing. Particular emphasis is put on the classic shamanic journey, one of the most remarkable visionary methods used by humankind to explore the hidden universe otherwise known mainly through myth and dream. Participants are initiated into shamanic journeying, aided by drumming and other techniques for experiencing the shamanic state of consciousness and for awakening dormant spiritual abilities including connections with Nature. Practice includes comparisons by participants of their discoveries in shamanic journeys as well as being introduced to shamanic divination and healing. They are also provided with methods for journeying to meet and study with their own individual spirit helpers and teachers in non-ordinary reality, a classic step in shamanic practice. Participants learn how the journey is utilized to restore spiritual power and health, and how shamanism can be applied in contemporary daily life to help heal oneself, others, and the Planet. Completion of the Basic workshop qualifies participants to take more advanced workshops and training courses with the Foundation for Shamanic Studies.. Event Details. Location: Calgary
