The Programme

Join us for two days of self empowerment within the healing beauty of nature, learning to deepen our knowledge, heal our wounds and transform energies employing timeless shamanic approaches. At this weekend we will cover: Power Animals, The Tree of Life covering all 3 worlds, Chakra totem, Journeying for the self and for another person.

Whenever our ancestors needed guidance, healing or knowledge they turned to nature. In receiving guidance from Nature we too will return to the sacred ways of our ancestors, restoring balance to the mind, recovering strength to our spirit and love in our soul. We will will enter the sweat lodge to purify and re-birth ourselves.

The weekend will include shamanic teachings on Saturday with preparation for the sweat lodge that will happen on Sunday. The teachings will include the cosmology of the sweat lodge, the meaning of the stone ceremony, the meaning of the fire ceremony, the teachings of the 4 directions, the connection to the spirit world, the meaning of entering the womb of the Earth mother, etc. First day is preparation and teachings and second day is the sweat lodge.

Please read all the information about the preparation for the sweat lodge on our page.

At this life changing weekend we will work with the elemental powers, plants and animals to heal ourselves and our relations in an inspiring journey of self discovery. Discover energy healing and how your life can be changed by identifying and bringing more energies into your life that nurure you. A weekend to restore your energy system and re-connect with people from a place of deep unconditional love. Soul retrieval work will be part of the work at the weekend for self healing and self empowerment.

The power of ceremony within the Medicine Wheel is a profound experience. Working in the beauty of our Balerno woodland and sacred garden, Claudia and Mark will pass on to you the teachings of the Medicine Wheel as well as hold Sacred ceremonies related to each direction of the Wheel. Go home feeling you have stepped through the threshold of limitations and blockages and walk the path to freedom, empowerment and joy.
