Introduction to Shamanism

With Shamanism & Daily Life

The Yoga Tree, Stirling

8th -9th Feb 2020 | 10 am – 4 pm | Places Available

Are you interested in the ancient practice of Shamanism for personal development? This course is designed to give you an experiential understanding of shamanism for use in your life to support you with difficult themes you may be facing. These themes may be around relationships, working environments, family, your past, self-sabotaging behaviours, boundary issues, self-care… the possibilities of this work are vast and varied.

During this course we will talk briefly about the history of Shamanism, current Shamanic practice, the cycles and seasons and our connection with nature. We will talk about the importance of intention, setting safe and sacred space and will introduce the topic of ethics. We will go on a variety of guided Shamanic journeys to meet a Power Animal and/or one of our main Spirit Guides.

We will also hold sacred sharing circles to share our experiences during the day.

The course is experiential, includes a variety of Shamanic Journeys and will also include personal healing journeys. We will develop ways to use Shamanic practice as a daily practice and learn how to work with difficult themes in our lives.

At the end of the day, you will be able to journey at home, either with your own drum or with a drumming track. You will have met and be connected with a Main Guide and/or Power Animal. You will also know how to have a clear intention, how to set sacred space and how to be deeply grounded after your journeys.

I will provide you with literature to support you in your daily practice.

Cost – £70 
 
Please bring:
Yoga mat and blanket (there are spares)

Mage Apprentice: A Call to Connection

During this 5-week advanced program each attendee will explore their deeper nature within the container of the Mage. The Mage is the magician, the keeper of ancient wisdom and the Power source of the ancient Picts. By inviting the energy of the Mage to hold this program, we invite wholeness and magic into our circle.

As the Shaman of Pictish Lands, the Mage opens us up to and is the gateway to the Spirit of the Land in Angus. The Land here is a deep holder of ancestral wisdom and through the Land we will invite the trees, the elements and our Pictish Ancestors to dance with us through this Beltane time. We will work to open up our connection to the Land around us and to mirror that to develop our own inner connection.

If you feel called to work more deeply with your Shamanic Nature in partnership with Land and/or to increase your confidence and understanding of Shamanism then this course will create a container for you to immerse in your own deep connective process.
