Artist Shaman Healer Sage is a foundational course is multi-cultural shamanism and its application to living your life in greater harmony. Learn about and practice spiritual wisdom, ritual, and ceremony to better navigate our current day, chaotic world. Through personal experience and practice you will have the opportunity to understand and experience direct revelation that brings true transformation.This course is all about living your life in power and unity. Artist Shaman Healer Sage is for someone who is ready for change, for clearing away the things that block you from being you, and for awakening your true soul Self. This is for someone who wants to embrace his or her capacity to dream a life born of passion, joy and fulfillment... and THEN Embody it! Whatever you put into this class you will get out of this class.
Each designated Saturday Meeting we will gather in a safe, ceremonial space for learning universal shamanic wisdom, practices, storytelling, drum journeying, soul remembering, and creating shamanic tools. We will also meet virtually on Zoom once 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.
The content of the course will include foundational Shamanic teachings, the wisdom of the Medicine Wheel, and shamanic practices for living life empowered and awakened! You will receive everything you need to shape shift your life into greater harmony and empowerment for a joyful life.
Each meeting we will also make ceremonial, shamanic tools associated with the work of that month.
Saturday attendance and zoom attendance are required for acceptance into this course.
Every class will include a ceremonial, creative shamanic tool project. We’ll use ceremony and ritual to create our tools with intention and power.

Ceremony, Graduation and Celebration. It is time for our harvest, our completion, graduation and honoring of the hard work and play we have put in learning together, creating tribe together, and preparing to move to the next level of experience in our lives. Plan on an all day affair, to recap your learning and use of your tools, to give gratitude, and to celebrate.
The morning will be set aside to honor our tools and what they have taught us so far, as well as how else we may take them into our personal practices, and any offerings we may choose to offer others.
In the afternoon we will work with the Andean Medicine Ritual of a Despacho. This ceremonial ritual will be dedicated to the blessings for each student and the clan of your 2023 Artist Shaman Healer Sage as you go into the world. It will be a time for each student to offer blessings to each tribe mate in the ceremony, and to make an offering to Pachamama for the blessings to bring harmony to our clan and to all of our kin on earth.
Let's celebrate! You will bring some food to share with your tribe at the end of the day as you celebrate your transformation and honor one another.

The application process is really very simple. I am accepting students who are interested in the subject matter and course work. Monthly attendance for both the Saturday class and the zoom call is required, along with your desire to learn, your openness and willingness to adopt and try new practices monthly, and your agreement to put your best effort forth qualifies you to join the course. What you put into this class is what you get out of it. How you show up affects everything and everyone. You, the student, ARE the class! Everyone’s attendance brings great richness to the journey of all in the class.
There is nothing terribly rigorous about this shamanic course. However, you do need to be able to walk at least a mile on the flat lands in Colorado. It is also best if you are able to do short hikes in the foothills near Katherine's home. There will be a few short morning outings to be in nature, to gather her wisdom, energy, and often times found items. First class (weather permitting) there is a morning outing for some of the teachings and experiences. Other classes will have similar teaching opportunities outside when possible. Some may be in Katherine's backyard, some in the foothills.
Classes are held at Katherine Skaggs' studio in foothills in Fort Collins, Colorado.
An essential part of the energy exchange is your payment for the class. A deposit of $400 is required to hold your place in class, with five monthly payments of $280 starting at class April 22nd. Or a one time payment of $1695 is due to hold your place in class. A credit card is requested to have on file so we can run payments on the 1st of each month. If for any reason you don't want to continue in the course at any time during the six-month course, you agree to complete your financial agreement. If for any unseen reason you must drop out (such as due to illness or family crisis, each situation will be dealt with on a one-time basis per student to find the best outcome for all involved). Harmony and reciprocity are always held as guides for the highest and best outcome for all.
