Modules of the Course

By exploring and embracing different realities, the shamanic healer gains the ability to traverse between realms, bringing forth the gift of healing for themselves and their community. This mastery of interdimensional travel allows for the identification of allies and powers that can aid in both healing and everyday life.

"Walking the Shaman's Path" encompasses the practice of journeying into the spirit world, establishing connections with our guides and power animals. This includes personal journeys as well as journeys conducted on behalf of others. The course will delve into the profound Cosmology of the Tree of Life, examining the Three Worlds: Upper World, Lower World, and Middle World. Additionally, participants will discover their own unique Animal Totem, unveiling deeper insights about themselves and their spiritual journey.

By deeply comprehending and embodying the wisdom of the Medicine Wheel, we gain a profound framework that serves as our guiding map, illuminating our current position and revealing the path ahead. This invaluable tool empowers us to identify and address any blockages or obstacles, facilitating our smooth progression.

Navigating through life with the Medicine Wheel enables us to tap into our untapped potential, discover our true center, and live a harmonious, authentic, and purposeful existence. The teachings of the Medicine Wheel encompass the entirety of our being, embracing the psychological, emotional, physical, and spiritual dimensions. We will explore the teachings of the East, South, West, North, Above, Below, and the Centre, allowing for a comprehensive understanding of our holistic nature.

Life is inherently driven by energy. Every aspect of our physical and spiritual existence resonates with vibrational energy. The emotions and sensations we perceive, such as depression, fear, stress, negative thoughts, and discomfort, are manifestations of energy vibrating at lower frequencies. To unlock our full potential as individuals and healers, we have access to transformative techniques like energy healing, energy transformation, aura cleansing, and self-awareness.

By engaging in these practices, we can harness the power within us to elevate our vibrations and expand into the highest expression of ourselves. As we cultivate our abilities as healers, we contribute to the healing of others and the restoration of balance within ourselves, our communities, and our planet.

Ceremonies hold great significance within the Shamanic path, as they provide a profound opportunity for healing and connection. Each Gateway we traverse on this journey can be honored with a unique ceremony, representing the directions of East, South, West, North, Above, Below, and the Centre. Ceremonies serve as nourishment for our Spirit, strengthening not only our spiritual essence but also our physical and mental well-being.

During this weekend, our intention is to facilitate a deepening of your connection with Spirit by stepping aside as your teachers and allowing Nature and the Spirits to assume their rightful role as your true guides and mentors.

The Spiritual Warrior's quest transcends the realm of external battles, focusing instead on the profound exploration of the inner self and the interconnectedness of the Universe. Through this transformative path, healing begins within the depths of one's being, extending its transformative power to encompass both individuals and the planet at large.

By embarking on the inner journey, the Spiritual Warrior awakens their true essence, transcending the limitations imposed by the ego. Fearlessly confronting the inner adversary, they strive to attain visions that bring benefit to all, anchored in love and compassion. With unwavering dedication, the Spiritual Warrior manifests these visions, fostering a harmonious and thriving world.

Modules of the Course

Trauma, whether big or small, can cause a fragment of our soul or essence to seek refuge outside of our body, leaving us to cope and survive. In certain circumstances, we may also give away parts of ourselves to loved ones, or experience soul loss due to abuse or neglect. Soul loss is a natural adaptation mechanism that helps us navigate the mental, physical, and emotional impact of trauma. As humans, we possess this inherent survival mechanism.

Our essence or life force, which is a vital part of us, can exist in other dimensions because of our innate multidimensional nature. When soul loss occurs, we may feel a sense of something missing, without fully understanding what it is. It can manifest as a disconnection from the present moment, confusion, a lack of clarity or purpose, or being trapped in suffering and emotional pain. Symptoms such as depression and even suicidal thoughts can also arise. Childhood trauma is a common trigger for soul loss and often necessitates soul retrieval.

Through the intervention of a skilled shamanic practitioner, guided by spiritual allies, the lost soul parts that are needed to address specific issues can be identified and retrieved. Healing at the soul level and the subsequent reintegration can have profound effects on all aspects of our being—physical, emotional, and mental. Soul retrieval, despite its apparent simplicity, is one of the most potent forms of shamanic healing.

Expanding our understanding and questioning conventional ways, we embark on a deeper exploration of the soul retrieval process, focusing on facilitating it by guiding the client. We will delve into methods of assessing the client's readiness and empowerment, as well as techniques for effectively monitoring the process.

Trusting in the guidance and allowing Spirit to guide the healing work will be paramount. Witnessing the transformation of a client who takes ownership of their healing journey is an unparalleled experience. True healing unfolds when the client is fully empowered and embraces their role in the process.

A common concern presented to Shamanic practitioners is the removal of intrusive energies, which is a prevalent form of energetic ailment. When there are openings or gaps in our energy field, negative energies can enter and take residence within that space. These energies can manifest as detrimental thoughts, physical ailments, pain, and at times, even suicidal ideation. They can also originate from external sources, such as envy, ill intentions, anger, or rage. If left unaddressed for prolonged periods, these energies can evolve into independent entities, capable of influencing a person's thoughts, emotions and actions. Fully developed entities may also attach themselves to individuals, depleting their energy.

Throughout the weekend, we will acquire the knowledge to recognize when extraction work is necessary and learn the techniques to perform extractions. This ancient healing practice requires the shamanic practitioner to possess adequate power, emphasizing the significance of cultivating a balance between ruthless detachment and a compassionate heart.

Psychopomp work: As Shamanic practitioners, we hold a significant responsibility in assisting lost souls in their transition to the afterworld. Guided by compassion and unconditional love, we facilitate their journey towards completion.

House Cleansing: During this weekend's teachings, we will explore the practice of removing trapped energies, transforming spaces burdened with negativity, and conducting space and house clearings. These techniques empower us to create harmonious and energetically balanced environments.

As the boundaries between the spiritual and physical realms grow increasingly permeable, individuals are increasingly seeking shamanic assistance to address past life issues and memories. Recognizing our multidimensional nature and the timeless nature of the shamanic path, we can embark on journeys to explore past lives for the purpose of healing and growth.

During this module, we will come together to honor your journey and embrace the full expression of your shamanic gifts. Through the Creative Community work, you will embark on a profound exploration of stepping into your power as a shamanic practitioner. This transformative experience will provide you with the opportunity to share your unique shamanic gifts and techniques with fellow participants. Here you are invited to facilitate 1 hour of shamanic work for your group, allowing your essence to shine inspiring others.

About the Course

The 7 Gateways of Consciousness: East, South, West, North, Above, Below and the Centre.

This advanced work is an opportunity for you to go deeper into your medicine. We will work with the 7 Gateways of Consciousness, study and practice how to help your clients to heal through ceremonies. Empowerment, integrity, authenticity and individual Ceremonies for healing your people is the foundation of this advanced work. Come to empower your community and be empowered.

Modules of the Course

In the East direction, where the fiery element and the spirit reside, we embark on teachings that ignite the flames of transformation within us. This sacred journey invites us to embrace the power of initiation, illumination, and new beginnings.

Through the teachings of the East, we connect with the element of fire, symbolizing passion, inspiration, and the spark of life. Fire is both a purifier and a catalyst for change, burning away that which no longer serves us and igniting our inner flame of purpose and creativity.

In this direction, we delve into the depths of our being, unraveling the layers of conditioning and limitations that have held us back. Through sacred practices, rituals, and meditations, we awaken our inner fire, infusing our lives with vitality, enthusiasm, and a renewed sense of purpose.

The teachings of the East guide us towards self-discovery and self-mastery. We explore the realms of our beliefs, thoughts, and perceptions, identifying patterns and attachments that hinder our growth. By shining the light of awareness on these aspects, we cultivate the power to transform our inner landscape and align ourselves with our highest potential.

As we embrace the teachings of the East, we learn to harness the energy of the rising sun, symbolizing new beginnings and the birth of our authentic selves. We step into the realm of possibility, opening ourselves to the infinite wisdom and guidance of our spiritual allies and guides. Through the transformative power of the East, we ignite the fire of our spirit, awakening our divine potential and embracing the sacred purpose that resides within us. With each step on this sacred journey, we embody the essence of the East, allowing our inner fire to illuminate the path of self-discovery, empowerment, and spiritual evolution.

In this program, we will focus on the inner child and the Sacred Council as powerful tools for heart healing. It is remarkable that majority of the issues people seek shamanic healing for are connected to childhood trauma. Through this transformative work, you will cultivate the necessary skills to facilitate trauma healing for your clients. By connecting with your Sacred Council, you will access healing, guidance, profound insights, and personal empowerment. An open, resilient, and liberated heart, free from the burdens of past childhood traumas, is essential to truly embody heartfelt healing and support others on their healing journeys.

Exploring the depths of the shadow self and the ego: In this program, we embark on a profound journey into the West gateway to comprehend the shadow aspects and expand our consciousness regarding the limiting beliefs and thoughts imposed by the ego. By traversing this gateway, we empower ourselves and our clients to actively engage with the shadow and the ego, allowing for healing, transformation, transcendence, and the embrace of spiritual gifts and powers. Through this process, we unlock hidden potentials and unleash the true essence of our being.

Embracing the wisdom of the North gateway, we embark on a transformative journey along the ancestral path to rediscover our lineage and initiate profound healing. The North gateway embodies the spirit of communal service and carries the consciousness of our ancestors. During this weekend, we delve into DNA work, where we can bring about healing by transforming the ancestral line. We also engage in ceremonial practices to release curses and dissolve the entangled energies that hinder our well-being. Through sacred ceremony, we create space for profound healing to unfold and restore harmony within ourselves and our lineage.

Through this transformative work, you will transcend the limitations of time and self, empowering your clients to manifest a positive and fulfilling life path. By working with the Above gateway, you will acquire the skills to manifest supportive and loving relationships, as well as rewarding jobs and careers. As you align your intentions with the greater good of all, you will harmonize with the laws of the Universe. Discover how to receive divine inspiration from higher realms and manifest it in the tangible reality of the middle world. By embracing these teachings, you will become a powerful conduit for positive change and manifestation.

In this profound experience with the Below gateweay, you will have the chance to deeply connect with our Earth Mother through a ceremonial weekend immersed in nature. Guided by your spiritual allies and embraced by the nurturing power of the natural world, you will embark on a journey through the 4 Shields. Within this sacred space, you will receive profound guidance and teachings to carry back to your community, supporting them on their healing journeys. Through sharing and mirroring, the spiritual narrative will be reflected back to you, enhancing your understanding and growth. This immersive weekend will strengthen your bond with nature and empower you as a healer and guide for others.

Central to this transformative work is the cultivation of inner centredness, a deepened connection with our true selves, and the awakening of our inner wisdom. Through this inner alchemy, we establish a profound bond with our spiritual guides, accessing their guidance and support. As we gather and share this sacred wisdom, we are called to serve our community with compassion and love.

In addition to this profound inner journey, we also embrace the art of divination. By honing our skills in divination, we learn to navigate the realms of unseen knowledge, expanding our capacity to receive divine guidance and insight. This empowering practice allows us to delve deeper into our multidimensional existence, unlocking the hidden truths and treasures that lie within.

Through this comprehensive exploration, we embark on a path of self-discovery, empowerment, and service. By integrating fragmented aspects of ourselves, connecting with our authentic self, and deepening our connection with Spirit, we become conduits of transformative wisdom, guiding ourselves and others towards wholeness and fulfillment.
