What is Shamanism?
Every indigenous culture has historic roots in shamanic practices. In our view, shamanic technique originates from within. The techniques we teach work with nature and the Collective Dream. They allow the student to connect with their own inner wisdom and develop personal ritual and grow deeper in their connection to the living Earth and develop deep connections with others of like intention.
We use creative activities as an act of reverence for the forest and expression of gratitude stemming from our personal encounters with the beings of the plant and animal worlds.
This alchemical healing path offers integration of Astrology, Herbology, Sound Therapy, Shamanic Journey, Druidry, Ritual, Creative Expression and Energetic Healing Modalities. Herbalism and deep connection with plants are an essential part of this process.
A Level I Reiki initiation is available at no additional charge to those who are interested.
