Shamanism is a form of spiritual practice that is found in the roots of almost every culture on earth. It brings us back to our place of origin, to a place of connecting with nature and the spirit worlds in a deep and organic way.
Shamans throughout the world are the stewards of the Earth and of nature. They are the community members who have taken on the responsibility to spiritually maintain the balance and preservation of the land, community, and natural world. This includes the healing of the land itself, the blessing of community homes, and the protection of the people and their homes.
During this retreat you will receive teachings and practices to enter into a deeper connection with the natural world and the land that you live upon. We will cover ways to spiritually care for your home through clearing, blessing, and protective work. We will also explore ways to deepen your connection to the spirits of nature. All of this is done so that the natural world can become your companion and ally in living a more balanced life.
Our days will be filled with teachings and trainings, our evenings will culminate in ceremonies to move us deeper into integrating the work. There is also a pool available for use between classes.
This is a residential program which includes meals and lodging. We strongly encourage everyone to stay on premises through the entire workshop to cultivate a sense of community and to make sure that you can stay "in the work". Shamanism isn't about "practicing" it is about "living and being".
What will be covered
- Understanding the land as a sacred being and how to care for it as such
- Energetic clearing for the home and land
- Practices to build and strengthen your community
- Being introduced to powerful spirit watchers that replenish and maintain the land
- Working with our body and the land as reflections of one another
- How to build outdoor shrines to access the spirits of nature in a deeper way
- Home blessing and protection techniques
