Modules of the course


East Gateway: Filled with Spirit


Sweat Lodge Ceremony and training. Here you will receive an introductory training to facilitate Sweat Lodge Ceremonies for your community to bring about empowerment and healing. Structure of the lodge, safety, prayers, respecting and honouring tradition, the spirit of the lodge, healing and community. You will then have the opportunity work with the group to practice what you have learnt for a period of a year or two until you are ready to step into this powerful ceremony as a leader.



South Gateway: Coming from the heart


Working with the inner child to heal the heart. 90% of the problems people come for shamanic healing is childhood trauma related. With this work you will develop the appropriate skills to support the healing of traumas. One can only come from the heart if the heart is open, strong and free from past childhood traumas.

West Gateway: Looking within


Working with the shadow self and the ego self: Here we deepen our understanding of the shadow and expand our awareness of how the ego self limits beliefs and thoughts. In this gateway we assist engaging with the shadow and the ego selves to heal, transform, transcend and embrace their gifts and powers.



North Gateway: Ancestral healing and service


Through the consciousness of the North gateway we walk the ancestral paths and lineages for healing. The North gateway holds the consciousness of service to the community. Included in this weekend is DNA work, changing the DNA for healing purposes and also teachings on how to undo curses and black magic.

Above Gateway: Learning to manifest

With this work you will transcend time and transcend the self. Helping your clients create a positive life path, finding confidence to choose supportive, loving relationships and rewarding jobs and careers. What is for the good of all is in line with the laws of the Universe.


Below Gateway: The Shaman's death


Here you will have the opportunity to fully immerse with our Earth Mother with an Earth Lodge Ceremony. With the death of the ego, your full connection with Spirit and being held by Nature, in the Earth Lodge you will ask your Guiding Spirits to give you teachings and ceremonies to take back to your people to help them in their healing journey.

Centre Gateway: Inner Council

As multidimensional beings our work is to recognise and integrate the fragmented parts of ourselves. As we become more aware and integrate the different aspects of ourselves, we have the opportunity to fully become who we truly are with integrity and authenticity, grounding our spiritual life purpose. The essence of this work centres the client to their true nature, their central power; gathering their inner council for balance, empowerment and becoming whole.
