Artist Shaman Healer Sage 2020 Course Overview

The 3rd Saturday Each Month from 9am to 5pm
April 18 • May 16 • June 20 • July 18 • Aug. 15 • Sept. 19

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. This course 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.

Each designated Saturday Meeting we will gather in a safe, ceremonial space for soulful learning, drum journeying, soul remembering, and creating shamanic tools. We will also meet virtually on Zoom 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 foundational Shamanic teachings, the wisdom of the Medicine Wheel, and shamanic practices for living life empowered and awakened!

Each meeting we will also make ceremonial, shamanic tools associated with the work of that month.

Join in sacred community for the Full Moon in Sagittarius and the Summer Solstice. We will welcome the beginning of Summer on the longest day of the year. It is a time to honor the fire in the sky, the summer sun, and the place of the South in the medicine wheel. The South is a place of illumination, the container of the heart, community and support, as well as the place to grow your dreams.

Every full moon is a time of manifestation, realizations, culminations, resolutions and energetic fullness. It may be a time for a breakthrough in consciousness and transformation.

The Full Moon in Sagittarius comes with the inner adventure of the mind, heart and soul. This moon illuminates your longing for higher ideals and knowledge, giving birth to vision, and leadership with your own life.

With these influences will will align through ceremony and ritual to raise our frequencies, clean off the dust of the ego mind, clearing our energy bodies and our heart spaces, so we can access more of our essence light and consciousness. This is a great process to let go of any old patterns and energies that no longer serve. We will offer gratitude for our havingness and what we have received in this cycle.

This is a gathering for sacred ceremony of blessing and healing within the Shamanic Healing Circle. As you enter into this evening, you will be cleared with sacred tobacco and agua de florida water.

3278596_origSolar Eclipse
Shamanic Healing Circle
Tuesday, March 8th
6:30-9:30pm

with shamanic practitioner Katherine Skaggs

Held at Katherine's Studio at 3148 Birmingham Drive in Fort Collins, CO

Please join me Tuesday, March 8th to work with the Solar Eclipse energy in a sacred healing circle. This Solar Eclipse in Vedic Astrology is the night of the Lord Shiva, and a perfect time to transform karmic patterns and liberate yourself from toxic entanglements! It is a time to cut cords with situations and people who drain your energy. it is time to burn away old stories and attachments that do not serve you, and time to make space to write a new chapter in your book of life.

In order to move forward in our lives, we must cleanse away the past through the fires of liberating light energies. The astrology supports this shifting and cleansing and is most important we take advantage of it.

In this particular healing ceremony we will take time to work with fire as an element of burning away the old, as well as bringing in the light of the new. We will also take time to reassess what is truly important in our lives, and to refocus our priorities. We will call upon the powers of Hindu Lord Shiva to support us in going within to contemplate our true essence. Lord Shiva is also known as the great destroyer, so we will call him to help us let go of the difficult patterns that can not go forward in our lives.

As always, this shamanic healing circle brings another opportunity to use ceremony and ritual to align with the frequencies of your higher soul essence, to offer gratitude for what gifts and abundance you have, and then to let go of any old patterns and energies that no longer serve your life.

We gather in community for a sacred ceremony of blessing and healing with the Shamanic Healing Circle. As you enter into this evening, you will receive a cleaning and clearing with sacred tobacco and agua de florida water. We will then open a medicine wheel circle in ceremonial style, honoring our allies and the directions, calling in support and protection, creating a safe and sacred space for the evening.

Shamanic Healing • Intuitive Readings • Soul Guidance
by Katherine Skaggs
The Villages, FL
Monday, Feb. 15th thru Saturday, Feb. 20th
by appointment only

with intuitive, shamanic practitioner, soul guide
Katherine Skaggs

Held in The Villages, FL

Choose from individual intuitive guidance, consulting, counseling, tarot reading and healing sessions in person! Sessions may also be arranged for small businesses, executive teams, boards and other small groups and organizations.

Each session is based on intuitive information gained through access of the unseen world or quantum energy field. It can be extremely helpful in giving guidance in all areas of life, including: work, health, relationships, partnerships, projects, and major decisions.

Shamanic Healing is an ancient practice of healing that encompasses the spiritual dimension of healing, as well as the mental, emotional and physical healing. Shamanic medicine healing practices are multi-cultural, found among indigenous peoples around the globe, and date back more than 25,000 - 50,000 years.

Fundamental concepts of shamanism:

1. Everything is alive. Everything has spirit and awareness.
2. Energy and matter are the same. Everything is vibration.
3. Everything that exists is connected to everything else in a web of energy or life.
4. Unseen/inner/spiritual reality affects visible reality.

A shamanic practitioner is a “hollow bone” for Spirit, whose job is to bring balance and harmony to the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual dimensions for an individual, a community or group, for a home, land, or any object or being. This also can be applied to anything that exists.

Shamanic healing takes place in many forms, depending on what intuitive guidance is received from Spirit. This can include plant, herb and mineral spirit medicine, the use of song and other instruments to move and transform energy, visualization, soul retrieval, extraction, hands on shamanic massage or physical body manipulation. The shamanic practitioner understands the necessity to use both nature and spirit in healing and that true healing is whole and complete: body, mind and spirit. (Thanks to the Power Path School of Shamanism for this beautiful explanation of Shamanic Healing.)

Each session is designed by Spirit for the client’s specific needs and goals.

Katherine Skaggs – Intuitive, Shamanic Practitioner, Soul Guide, Mythical Goddess Tarot reader

Katherine Skaggs brings more than 25 years experience as a holistic healing practitioner, dream interpreter, visionary artist, spiritual teacher and guide. She has trained extensively with the Power Path School of Shamanism since 2007, including work with indigenous shamans from the Shipibo, Q’ero and Huichol traditions. Her specialties include energy clearing and balancing, sacred song and sound healing, traditional feather healing, Shipibo style extraction, soul retrieval and soul remembering, as well as house/property clearing, ceremony, ritual and practices for personal transformation and empowerment.

As an intuitive, Katherine is able to access the information in the unseen world, the energy field to perceive distorted patterns, and is able to both clear these patterns as well as give empowering guidance to the individual for proceeding forward in life in greater balance. At times Katherine will use the Mythical Goddess Tarot as one of her tools in seeing the patterns and gaining guidance.

Katherine is available for in-person energy healing and spiritual guidance while in Florida.

The full moon cycle is always a time for harvest, a time to gather and be grateful for what has come, to pick the fruit off the vine and enjoy the blessings of your labors... as well as to then compost what has died on the vine, what is no longer giving energy, nourishment, value and blessing to your life.
