Advanced Training

in Shamanic Studies

For a Shamanic Life or Career

Our advanced courses go in-depth into topics that form the nucleus of shamanic healing. Advanced training is open to any student who has completed The Medicine Way or have undertaken extensive study with other teachers and have strong journey skills. Please contact us if you are unsure you meet the prerequisites for advanced training.

 

Illumination & Extraction

2 Days
Prerequisite: Medicine Way or equivalent

Illumination is the process of diagnosis and the catalyst for healing in energy medicine. We use Illumination to identify and heal physical, emotional, and energetic traumas. Illumination shines light on imperfections and negative imprints in the Luminous Energy Field, engages powerful, natural methods of healing, enables the extraction of negative energies, and brings us back into proper balance and robust health.

 

Soul Retrieval

2 Days
Prerequisite: Medicine Way or equivalent

Physical, emotional, or energetic trauma can lead to soul loss. We practice techniques for soul reintegration with an emphasis on creating permanent, lasting, compassionate solutions. We cover methods of identifying soul loss, finding soul parts, negotiating successful reintegrations, and essential after-care.

 

Death, Dying, and Psychopomp

2 Days
Prerequisite: Medicine Way or equivalent

A transformative introduction to death and dying, this weekend prepares the shamanic practitioner to provide support and counseling for those preparing for transition. In our modern Western culture, death is something to be feared. We dispel this myth and approach end-of-life issues with courage and openness. We explore issues of family, other traditions, and societal norms. We delve into pyschopomp and how to effectively transition the earthbound out of this realm. Lastly, we look into our own views and roles around death and make certain we are properly prepared for our own eventual transition.

Ancestral Healing

2 Days
Prerequisite: Medicine Way or equivalent

Have you noticed how issues tend to run in families? We blame genes and family culture, but in a shamanic sense, family issues will follow us across generations until resolved. Our ancestors can be our biggest asset in life, bringing memory and wisdom from the past to the present, but they can also be the cause of grief, pain, and consistent struggle as their unresolved issues come forward into our lives. We learn and practice techniques for healing the past so our ancestral energies can appropriately work for our benefit and we develop experience working with our helpful ancestral spirits for the benefit of our present lives.

Ceremony & Ritual

2 Days
Prerequisite: Medicine Way or equivalent

Since the first shaman walked the surface of the Earth Mother, shamans have helped people understand, recognize, and participate in spiritual life through ceremony. We explore and experience ceremonies for Birth, Rites of Passage, Marriage, Handfasting, Civil Unions, and Death. We engage in rituals to celebrate celestial events and learn of the many variations of the despacho and how, and when, to use them. We learn ceremonies and techniques for working with the spirits of the land to rectify issues caused by thoughtless human habitation.

Plant Medicine

2 Days
Prerequisite: Medicine Way or equivalent

In this weekend introduction to the world of plant medicine and plant spirits, we investigate the life of plants on Mother Earth, how to work with them, and how to communicate with them. We shamanically work with and discuss plants, plant essences, and plant spirit medicine. We learn about and honor ancient traditions, medicinal and shamanic uses, and tree wisdom, as well as share techniques for discovering new uses for medicinal plants and plant spirits. In this course we work with plants at the level of spirit through shamanic journey. We do not ingest plant medicine.

Advanced Divination

2 Days
Prerequisite: Medicine Way or equivalent

Divination is the practice of discovering insight and knowledge about the threads that weave the past, present, and future together. Shamans use both mechanical tools — cards, pendula, muscle tests, stones, and found objects — in addition to working with helping spirits in non-ordinary reality. We practice the fundamentals, then go to work expanding our toolkit to include extensive work exploring the past and the present, then learning how to use that wisdom to navigate the balance of free-will and future probabilities. Divination is not just a skill, but an art that improves with practice.

Advanced Breathwork

2 Days
Prerequisite: Medicine Way or equivalent

Every ancient culture on our planet has a strong tradition of breathwork. Modern integrative medicine uses breathwork as a pathway to powerful, natural healing. Breathwork is complementary to so many healing modalities that it is one of the most important and profound skills to both master and teach. We learn how to use breathwork to enhance our shamanic practices, explore therapeutic techniques from around the globe, and practice how to most effectively use breathwork to assist with healing many modern maladies.
