Shamanic Healing / Sacred Plant Retreats / Workshops
Shamanism: A Shaman is an individual that has access and influence in the world of the benevolent and the malevolent spirits. During ritual or ceremony the Shaman enters into a trancelike state. In these altered states of consciousness they encounter and interact with the spirits world and channel these energies into this world. It is a technique of religious ecstasy, as Shamans they are the intermediaries / messengers between the worlds of human and spirit.
The Shaman enters a supernatural dimension and can mend the soul to treat illness, traumas, injuries, and ailments restarting balance and wholeness. Shaman are spiritual beings with the ability to heal, work with energies and ‘see’ visions. The essential characteristics of shaman are mastery of energy and fire as a medium of transformation. Shamans have been credited with the ability to control the weather, divination, the interpretation of dreams, astral projection, and traveling to upper and lower worlds. Shamanism is based on the premise that the visible world is pervaded by invisible forces or spirits that affect the lives of the living.
Shamanism is an ancient healing tradition and moreover, a way of life. It is a way to connect with nature and all of creation, the Shaman is the Medicine Woman or Man. The word originated among Siberian Tungus (Evenks) meaning S/He who knows. Anthropologists coined the term Shamanism, and have used it to refer to the spiritual, ceremonial leaders among and ancient spiritual practices of these indigenous cultures.
Shamanism is the universal wisdom inherent to all indigenous tribes, where spiritual practices are rooted in nature, tapping into the power of Mother Earth. Shamanism is concerned with the health all the people, animals, plants and all of life..The practice of Shamanism is to enlighten and heal using ceremonials that can include, mythic journey’s into the subconsciousness, drumming and rhythmic music, dance and movement, plant spirit medicine and mind altering drugs. Shamanism is the oldest worldwide spiritual practice, one shared by all our ancestral heritages. Shamans view the full spectrum of life – animals, plants, stones, earth, stars, ancestors, and dreams – as a living, spirit-based continuum.
Professional shamanic practitioners are highly trained through years of study, and are authorized by their shamanic teacher(s) to do client work when their training is successfully completed. They are trained to go into different realms and interact on the client’s behalf to assist in personal transformation through energy work, healing, and the transmission of information which they bring through into ordinary reality.
What are journeys, and what are remote journeys? We attend to your concern(s) through taking a shamanic journey with a specific intent that we create together beforehand, and doing the work we are shown to do, with helpers.
What sort of concerns can journeys address? Really anything that is concerning you and your soul’s well-being. The work is healing, clarifying, inspiring, relieving, and transformative. Some people are working on themselves, getting or strengthening their connect with nature, with spirit, with their guides and helpers, releasing old patterns and fears, finding out about their purpose here on the planet, and so on. Some people are facing major turning points or crises. Some work is about a location, clearing or blessing a property or house, protecting or doing boundary work. It doesn’t have to be working through a crisis or healing major wounds or physical states, although it can be that too.
Do remote journeys actually work? Yes! They actually do, very much so. In fact, the client’s sentient experience of the work as it happens, and talking about what was happening on both ends afterwards is pretty conclusive. What follows from the work in the client’s life or in the situation shows that the work is effective. Changes and realizations continue, and continue.
