Introduction to Shamanism & Shamanic Healing
February 22, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm$39
Learn about shamanism as a spiritual practice, where the word “shaman” originated, how long people have been practicing shamanism, which ancient cultures practiced shamanism, and which modern cultures still do! Learn about “Core Shamanism” and how it differs from culture-specific shamanism. Explore the concepts of Power Animals and Teachers, the Three Worlds, the Shamanic Journey, and divination and healing from a shamanic perspective. Find out why shamanism is often referred to as a “path of direct revelation” and discover why it is considered a spiritual path that can be practiced in harmony with most belief systems.
This class is being offered only once this year. It is a prerequisite to the 5-week Basic Shamanic Journeying course, which will be offered May/June of 2017. The Basic Shamanic Journeying course is, in turn, a prerequisite for consideration in the 1-year Black Horse Shamanic Apprenticeship (new group forming in November 2017).
