The Shaman's Journey

The Shaman’s Journey
Basic workshop
with Christiana Harle

Shamanism is humanity's oldest spiritual practice, a tradition for healing and problem solving. It is a way of maintaining balance in the individual, and between the individual and the rest of creation. During this basic course, participants will be introduced to some of the main ideas and methods used for thousands of years by shamans around the world. Shamanism is not limited to Native Americans or other exotic cultures. Northern Europe also has an ancient shamanic tradition, and we all have - as human beings - the ability to work shamanically.
The main emphasis of the course is on the shaman's journey to the world of the spirits. Participants will learn to use the traditional methods of singing, dancing, and drumming to shift to shamanic consciousness, meet their spirit helpers, and explore the spirit world.  In this other reality, one can gain power and knowledge for oneself and others, and touch the spirit side of Nature. Basic shamanic healing will also be taught. In the circle, we will share the experiences of the journeys, and learn how to understand them. 
We will look closely at the ethics of shamanic work and see how shamanism can empower our everyday lives.
If you are interested in getting started, in the basics, with no set cultural boundaries, this workshop is for you.
The Spirits are the real teachers and it is my intention to help you along this way. I can give you techniques, stories, background, ways, perhaps arrange human trials and initiations and even say, “I don’t know”, BUT the Spirits of drum, voice, rattle and Nature-all of Mother Earth and each of us humans are the final teachers and guide the way.
No previous shamanic journeying experience necessary. 
 This workshop gives teaching in shamanic techniques, the shamanic path and spirituality. 
It is not a therapy course.
Alcohol and drug-free.
