With Shamanic Practitioner Katherine Skaggs. This multi-cultural shamanic course is a foundation for living the ancient spiritual practices of direct revelation for transformation, and for living your life in power and unity. We will meet every 5 to 6 weeks, gathering in a ceremonial space for learning, drum journeying, remembering and creating from the heart of Spirit. We will also meet virtually one to two times monthly at an agreed upon evening time for teleconference and check-in, to maintain and ground our teachings into our every day life, to build community and to gain support. If for any reason you cannot meet at this agreed upon time by the group, a recording will be available. The content of the course will include teachings of the Medicine Wheel and practices to incorporate it into your life as a powerful tool for balance and guidance, working with spirit guides and animal totems for support, drum journeying for direct revelation, cleansing and clearing, grounding and altar work; the power of prayer; protection; recapitulation and release; places of power and power spots.
Every class will include a ceremonial, creative shamanic tool project. We’ll use ceremony and ritual to create our tools with intention and power.
