with Shamanic Practitioner Katherine Skaggs
The Medicine Wheel provides a beautiful map for walking the cycles of life in joy, peace and power. Join Katherine Skaggs, Shamanic Practitioner for an experiential learning on the medicine wheel and how to infuse its wisdom into your everyday life for greater balance.
You will also receive foundational teachings in shamanism, including but not limited to the Q'ero people's understandings of energy and how to work with it to bring harmony; how to clean and clear your energy field working with nature; how to recognize and clear energy leaks; the right use of power; use of the shamanic drum journey to open you to the path of direct revelation; and what is "medicine," from personal to global, for empowerment. Within the concept of “medicine” you will explore your personal “medicine”, the medicine of Mother Nature and the medicine of your allies, guides and guardians, and how to restore your medicine when you have leaked it away or feel disempowered.
You will activate the medicine of creativity in the afternoon. You will make your own “medicine” wand or staff, and learn how to use it as a wisdom tool in your life.
Items to bring to class:
Water to drink
Snacks for the day
Found items for your medicine wand. Prior to class, please tune in and take a walk in nature. Ask if there is a stick, short or tall, that will support making your medicine wand or staff. Tune to your heart and open to what will come to you. Trust! Also "ask" if there are any feathers, stones, or other items from Mother Nature that would like to come to you as medicine.
Bring the stick and any other found items from nature. Also, bring any crystals that have meaning to you that you might like to put into your medicine wand, or totem or symbol trinket and beads that you might like to incorporate.
Medicine wands often are made from crystals, feathers, leather, beads, colored twine or ribbon, trinkets that have meaning, etc.
Other items provided: leather, beads and other items I will gift to you to support your medicine.
You will learn how to work with your medicine staff or wand as an empowering tool, as well as how to use it to clear energy and bring in energy.
