About the Course

The Year 1 Foundation Training in Shamanic course is for those who want to go deeper in their self-development while walking their spiritual path, as well as, for those who wish to develop their gifts and become a shamanic practitioner by answering a call from Spirit and training further.


Meeting more or less every three Months, the course is designed to help you build a solid inner foundation as an individual and or as a shamanic practitioner if you choose to persue the path further.




Walking the Shaman's Path


It is through understanding and experiencing different realities that the shaman is able to move between worlds bringing the gift of healing for self and his community. When we master moving between realms, allies and powers are identified to assist with the healing at hand or simply with our daily life. Walking the Shaman's Path covers journeying into the spirit world to connect with our guides and power animals. Journeying for the self and journeying for a friend.


Introduction to the Medicine Wheel


By understanding, feeling and bringing the teachings of the Medicine Wheel into our body and our life, we will always have a map to refer to and to shows us exactly where we are. This way we can remove or heal blockages and move forward at ease. By navigating with this map we can access more of our potential power, find our centre and live a more balanced, authentic and fulfilled life. The teachings of Medicine wheel also covers the pshycological, emotional, physical and spiritual dimensions of the self.


The Natural movement of Energy in Healing


Life is energy. All physical and spiritual sensation is, on all levels, energy vibrating. What we and others experience as depression, fear, stress, negative thoughts and bad feelings are energies vibrating at "low" frequencies. Energy transformation, energetic healing, aura cleansing and self awareness are some techniques to transform energies and expand into our full potential as human beings and healers. Healers of the self, others and our planet.


The Path of the Spiritual Warrior


The Spiritual Warrior's battle is concerned with the inner life far more than the outer life. Her/his path is the path of great understanding of the self and the Universe around us. Healing of the self and consequently people and planetary healing is possible through the inner journey of awakening the warrior, overcoming the ego's limitations and engaging the enemy within, then seek vision and manifest that vision into the world. The Spiritual Warrior seeks visions that benefits all and is centred in love.


Ceremonies and Nature


We close our programme integrating what we have learned over the past year with the understanding and the experience of creating ceremony. With the Ceremonies and Nature programme we celebrate who we are, our visions and dreams and how they can be manifested into the world. Nature then becomes our teacher.
