Summer Solstice
Shamanic Healing Circle
Monday, June 20th
6:30-9:30pm

with shamanic practitioner Katherine Skaggs

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

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. 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. Short shamanic clearings/healings and blessings will be offered individually within the group setting.

We will also enjoy a ceremonial fire ritual to clean and to infuse light into our bodies.

The collective group setting and individual clearings assist in clearing patterns of limitation, and opening to the wholeness of each individual, supporting self empowerment and wellness on mental, emotional, spiritual and physical levels. This also supports one to better navigate their lives in balance and personal power.

Shamanism and shamanic energy healing is known to be as old as 50,000 years according to modern day archeology. Katherine Skaggs has trained internationally with Amazonian Shipibo Indian shamans from the jungles of Peru, the Q'ero from the Andes of Peru and the Huichols from Mexico, in addition to multi-cultural shamanic teachers within the U.S. The practices offered within this ceremonial circle are handed down from these traditions and offered with the intention of personal and community healing and blessing.

Please come early so we can begin at 6:30pm sharp. Thank you so much!

Spirituality of Shamanism
for Everyday Life
at Bodhi Spiritual Center in Chicago
Sunday, May 7th
Noon to 2pm

Join Katherine Skaggs, shamanic practitioner and visionary artist for an introduction to the Spirituality of Shamanism and how you can bring that into your everyday life for greater joy, energy and awakening of the heart. These ancient principles and practices are often considered the foundational wisdom of many religious practices and truths.

Shamanism is an ancient spiritual practice that dates as old as 50,000 years. Shamanism is found globally, in various indigenous peoples around the world, with common, universal teachings for living a life in balance, power and grace. Shamanism recognizes Spirit in all things, and energy in all of the Natural World. It’s ancient ways are timeless, and available for living a more empowered life TODAY!

Fundamental concepts of shamanism:

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

A shamanic practitioner is a “hollow bone” for Spirit to restore 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.

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.

The collective group setting and individual clearings assist in clearing patterns of limitation, and opening to the wholeness of each individual, supporting self empowerment and wellness on mental, emotional, spiritual and physical levels. This also supports one to better navigate their lives in balance and personal power.

A 4-Saturday Series of Advanced Work
2nd Saturday of April, May, June and July
(April 9, May 14, June 11, July 9)

Pre-requisite Artist Shaman Healer Sage course with Katherine Skaggs.

Advanced Shamanic Practices Training is a series of classes focused on more in-depth shamanic practices for your personal work, and for working with others.

The Shamanic Body Map

Walking a shamanic lifestyle is one of finding and following maps that reveal wisdom and truth, and the way of waking up as Spirit within a dream. The Shamanic Body Map will help you better understand the wisdom of the body and what it has to teach you in waking up.

The Shamanic Body Map reveals the symbol system of the body, and how it can teach you what you are trying to learn when it is out of balance. This understanding alone can help you restore your center and release distorted patterns. What happens if you break a bone? The significance of where you break it? What is it trying to show you, teach you? We’ll take a look at the organs too and what they can teach you about where you are on the road of the soul.

This information can give insights and support to you and your life path, as well as to how you work with clients if you are a healer practitioner.

Shamanic Healer Practitioner

Explore shamanic healing practices such as the following:

Who are you as Shamanic Practitioner?

Shamanic practitioner healer as “Hollow Bone”

Calling your allies for support and putting them to work

Setting Space - Your outer environment, your personal energy body space, and client space

Seeing your client as whole (beyond illness and problems)

Listening/sensing with all your awareness

Use of your tools (feathers, mesa, tobacco, prayer, your voice - song, sound instruments, vibration, clicking sticks, rattle, drum)

Energy cleanliness with your tools and space

Developing and trusting your intuition

Extracting/transmuting hucha without taking it on

Putting energy in/filling up

Sealing your client up

Clearing old vows, contracts and statements that keep someone stuck

Soul retrieval and remembering

Clearing attachments and cords

Practice on one another

Land Healing

We will take a day and go to into nature where there is a need for a land healing. We may drive up the Poudre or stay closer to my house, but we will go out and spend a day working with the Spirits of the land. There are several options I am working on now.

Within our time together we will connect to the core essence of the land, identify its power spot, and any trauma that has been left upon it… tune into any messages we get from the land to share within the group and with owners (if we aren't on public land) and then follow any further guidance needed.

We’ll take our tools and work with the land as an ally, and support any shift in frequency through clearing hucha and trauma.

We will do an Andean dispacho ceremony to honor the land, to bring healing, to bring blessings and to bring balance. This is a powerful healing ceremony that clears energy and imbues powerful shift.

Long Distance Healing

We will spend a day working with the long distance healing process, its basics, what is the same or similar to working in person and what you might find different.

This will be another extension of trusting your intuition and developing it in the healing process.

We’ll address use of altars in long distance healing, calling in your allies, use of photos, use of names, etc. How to shift the frequency of the situation…

This process can be used with anyone and anything. It can be with one on one human clients, animal clients, land healing, as well as much bigger situations such as wars and chaos going on in lands far away. Nothing is too big to address.

We’ll go over the holographic process of working long distance, as well as do long distance healing with some volunteers we will have in the afternoon.

Other Stuff to Expect

We will discuss the etiquette of being a shamanic practitioner healer, the spiritual boundaries to develop and work with for yourself, matching pictures and the need to take 100% responsibility for yourself, keeping ego in check and showing up in humility. We will go back over shamanic core principles and keeping yourself fully engaged in the moment. Being a shamanic practitioner is a path of integrity and accountability. It is a path of balance and service.

How do you stay on track and what do you need to ask for so you can show up 100% clean and clear with each person you meet?

What is your state of inner balance and health?

 

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.

Why Soul Retrieval?

Have you ever felt like you lost a part of yourself when after a relationship break up, a car accident, death of a loved one ... or perhaps you just didn't feel right, you didn't feel well, or walked around with some sort of anxiety or fright? When one has experienced a trauma of any sort, whether a moment a go, in childhood, or even lifetimes ago, there is an energetic loss of one's essence light that can occur, attributing to soul loss. This trauma can create distortions in one's energy bodies, blocking the ability to experience joy, happiness and clarity of one self.

For any one person to experience the fullness of life, it is important that that person is able to be fully present in all aspects of self. Imagine the soul's essence is light. If for any reason that light has been displaced through trauma and the drama's of life, one can experience a lack of Self and a lack of joy for life.

This gathering is aimed at both education about soul loss and soul retrieval, and a focus through the group experience to release energetic blocks and trauma's in the field of each individual who gathers to allow a restoration of the light within each person.

A sacred container is created to facilitate a high frequency, safe experience. A medicine wheel is opened and supportive, light beings, power animals and spirit guides are called to bring in light and healing energies. A variety of shamanic tools and methods will be used to assist each person through the group experience, along with a soul retrieval drum journey. Rattles, clicking sticks, light drumming, tibetan bowls, bells and singing are typically used to assist in the restoration process. Light and breath will be blown into the crown of each person during the ceremony as part of the experience.

This event is designed for empowerment of each individual, to assist him or her in the ability to absorb more light into his or her being and to be present to his or her divinity.

Learn the power of Shamanic Drum Journeying to awaken your ability to directly communicate with your inner or spirit self and receive direct knowing. Your inner self is in constant communication with the seen and unseen worlds. Learning to drum journey can be a great tool for meeting your power animal, spirit guides and helpers, divination, personal healing, and gaining insights to a question or objective you have in mind.

Journeying into one's inner Self and inner worlds is a foundational tool shamans and shamanic cultures have used around the world for thousands of years to gain wisdom and power for walking their lives authentically and joyfully. Drumming is a simple and effective way to move inward into ecstatic trance states upon the archetypal realm of the inner levels of consciousness.

Katherine Skaggs, a multi-cultural shamanic practitioner, will guide you in the basics of how to drum journey for insights in living your life more powerfully. She will use the hand drum to take you inward on your journey within a safe and sacred space for your highest experience.

For Artist Shaman Healer Sage Grads Only

Saturday, August 22nd
9am to 3pm

Pre-requisite: ASHS Course I

Connect with the spirit and essence of Tobacco in sacred ceremony and ritual. In this day of retreat, work with tobacco in sacred silence and prayer, invoking tobacco as your ally and as a powerful shamanic tool in your everyday life for clearing, cleaning and invoking healing. Bring tobacco in for protection and for assistance in greater boundaries and integrity in all areas of your life.

Tobacco is a sacred plant used by many indigenous peoples around the world. The tobacco we will work with is from the jungles of Peru. It is pure, and is used by the shamans there for clearing low frequency energies, such as trauma, unpleasant patterns and emotions. It is also used for protection and greatly assists sensitive, empathic people when used consciously as an ally, through prayer and with intention.

This is a one-day diet with tobacco, with an opportunity to get to know it better as a spirit ally and powerful healing tool.
