We are the choreographers of our own Life Dance. In an ideal world, the steps we’ve learned would enable us to dance it with rhythm, verve and style. Sadly many of us say we can’t dance or won’t dance: fear guides our life process and binds our feet! Sometimes the steps are challenging and we have to go over them time after time until we learn; sometimes we are in the flow and the steps come easily. This training programme helps us to look deeply within and heal ourselves giving us the opportunity to discover our own dance and help others to find theirs.
Two Years of Shamanic Training
Over the first weekend of the training we will begin to explore the Medicine Wheel as a tool for self-healing and diagnosis, helping us to discover our hidden strengths and weaknesses.
We will challenge you to work with the wounded inner feminine moving towards a balanced approach in life which is essential to the Shamanic Practitioner.
We will begin the journey of learning Shamanic healing practises with the Hollow Bone Healing to help awaken our ‘inner knowing’.
You will be shown protection rituals and given the 1st rite of the Munay Ki.(Bands of Power)

15th & 16th December, 2018
You will create, decorate and empower your own magical drum and beater. Journey to discover the Spirit and name of your drum. Honour, name and celebrate its creation with a Fire Ceremony. An enjoyable, sociable creative weekend for all. No previous creative skills required. All materials provided.
‘Much of the Art of Drum Making cannot be spoken-it is about tapping into our creative centres, contacting Spirit and bringing into being what we are given. Drums are a Shamans /Shamankas most important tool. When he/she makes their own it is a birthing process-a moment of conception; when the seed of the idea meets materials gifted by Mother Earth. A gestation- as the process unfolds. A birth as the drum is completed and then honoured and named in Ceremony. Their drum becomes their companion, their most powerful ally and teacher. If cared for it will mature and grow old with them. When the Shaman/Shamanka walks the Rainbow Bridge the Drum Spirit will go with them, keeping rhythm for the next dance.’ I feel that this is true. The Drum Spirits are really needed now. They beat for the healing of Mother Earth-they beat for our own illumination-they beat for joy and sorrow-they beat for celebration and ceremony-they beat for cleansing and clearing-they beat for us.
We will be seeking our hidden inner child and reuniting him/her with our healed masculine/feminine.
We will learn about energy extraction and how to deal with inappropriate energies and entities.
