Workshops

The Shamanic Journey, Part 1: A Direct Encounter With Spirit

An essential part of the shaman's path is the shamanic journey, or travelling into the world of our helping spirits in order to receive wisdom, power, or healing; to help other people or the planet; and to connect with Nature.

This ancient method is easy to learn and very helpful for everyday life questions and challenges and for personal healing and growth.

During this workshop, we will journey to the Lower World to meet our power animal or ally; journey to the Upper World to meet a teacher in human form; and journey to the Middle World to meet an ancestor spirit ally. This workshop will offer basic journeying for beginners and advanced journeys for those with journey experience.   Beginning and advanced students welcome.

Participants are asked to bring a bandanna for covering their eyes, a cushion, a blanket, and a notebook and pen to record their journeys.

The Andean Despacho Ceremony: An Offering to the Pachamama, Mother Earth

The Andean Pachamama Despacho Ceremony is an ancient Earth-honoring ceremony also known as "The Gathering of Prayers" and "The Dispatch." Join us in this powerful ceremony in which we will honor Pachamama (Mother Earth) with an offering of sweets, sugars, grains and flowers and simultaneously weave and cleanse the luminous threads of our energy bodies to create reciprocity or Ayni, a sacred principle of the universe. This is both an opportunity to give back to Pachamam and to ask for what we need in life.

Participants are asked to bring three bay leaves and a red carnation.

Shamanic Power Animals

In the shamanic tradition, Power Animals or totems are natural helping forces of Nature that are given to us at birth to guide us, protect us and help us.  Each of us has one or two Power Animals that are crucial to our life's path and our personal development.  In this experiental workshop, will use a simple shamanic journey to meet our Power Animal and we will then begin to build our relationship with our Animal through journey, dance, song, writing and the creation of simple art pieces that connect us more deeply.  Participants will undergo a simple initiation ceremony with their
Power Animal.

Participants are asked to bring a bandanna for covering their eyes, a cushion, a blanket, and a notebook and pen.

The Shaman's Altar (Mesa)

The shaman's altar or mesa is an ancient way of connecting to the power and wisdom of the Pachamama (Mother Earth), the Apus (Mountains) and the Viracocha (Creator/Creatress) in Peruvian and other cultures.  Join us in this experiential workshop in which we will discuss mesa cosmology and begin in the creation of our personal mesa.  Participants will create their own simple mesa or altar, receive a simple initiation ceremony and learn the beginning work of using their mesa.
