We begin our journey together with an introduction to the energy body and how to work with it. We learn to control and modify our state through shamanic breathwork. We discover the basics of shamanic divination, building skill with hands-on work. We learn about the Qero shamans, the totems and archetypes, ancestors and helping spirits, and the shaman’s mesa. We begin building our mesas and start the process of transformation.
In the West, we begin the journey of the Luminous Warrior, learning to live our lives authentically and without fear. We honor our past, explore past lives, and integrate the lessons of the past into the present. We discover and work with our shadow selves and leave behind our need for control and our fear of death, We continue to build and work with our mesas.
We explore the roles and beliefs that control our lives, removing the disempowering ones and becoming acquainted with our true guiding roles and beliefs. We meet and begin to work with our ancestors as we discover and explore our highest destiny in this life. We continue to build and work with our mesas.
We complete our medicine bodies and we come face-to-face with our core beliefs. We heal our hearts and minds and work deeply with our intentions. We enter into the realm co-creation and learn to participate in it. We embrace what works as we shed what holds us back. We learn to make powerful offerings and we complete and fully activate our mesas.
We now possess the tools of the shaman, but what does this mean in the modern world? This is the Master Class in truly living Everyday Shamanism. We learn to take charge of our future, walk the path of the Luminous Warrior, integrate the aspects of the four directions, and live our soul’s purpose with confidence and commitment.
Ancient Wisdom, Modern Times
Everyday Shamanism integrates old and new, ancient and modern. The foundation is Peruvian shamanism with additional influences from other earth-honoring traditions including Tibetan Buddhism, Wicca, and Celtic shamanism.
We live in a time where community is frequently non-existent, a connection with spirit of any kind is often absent, and respect for the Earth Mother is long-forgotten. We live in exciting yet chaotic times. This course is designed to prepare ordinary people to live, love, and thrive in the modern world as shamanic people.
Practical, Everyday Tools for Life
This course is designed to be life-changing, providing you with tools to use for the rest of your life. Included with your registration is a comprehensive course workbook and numerous opportunities to practice one-on-one and in small, supervised groups.
