“You will see stars and moons mirrored in your being.”
Shamanism is the spiritual expression of Nature and God, the belief that the the universe is a sacred, living and wholly-interconnected organism. Earth is a complex system of energetic matrix of vortexes, ley lines, energy fields and multiple dimensions that work in harmony to support and nourish life. Each form, living or inanimate, has a spirit and the world is a series of interwoven spiritual relationships to be maintained. The earth carries an energetic imprint of everything that has ever happened in its soils, in the waters and in the air; stories of love, joy, violence, power, fear, and creation. It carries the dreams and hopes from our ancestors who lived here. Long forgotten by modern cultures, the earth still holds these stories.
Shamans are intermediaries between the natural and spiritual world, traveling to other dimensions and using the information obtained to heal the community and the land. In the past, ecological issues were not considered part of shamanism. Shamanism is balancing the relationships between the entities on a spiritual level. Today there is a renewed interest in shamanism, but as individuals who seek to have a relationship with the spirit of all things. War, violence, tyranny and environmental catastrophes have caused many people to examine their relationship with the nature and spirituality. We feel a desperate need to heal the land, but it is a daunting process. Through shamanic techniques, we can heal ourselves, which is what the Earth needs from us. As we heal ourselves, we heal the Earth.
Shamanism is the oldest and most consistent expression of spirituality and a core belief in almost every culture around the world. Archeological evidence dates its to 40,000 years, although there is some evidence it has been around for more than 100,000 years. Buddhism, Christianity and Islam have roots in shamanism.
We offer courses not only to share and preserve ancient wisdom, but to give the participants the opportunity to enter non-ordinary reality to solve personal problems, receive guidance and provide healing to others.
The courses will vary, using methods and information from a number of tribes and traditions around the world. Shamanism is a spiritual practice and not an organized religion; it cuts across all faiths and creeds, reaching into the deepest levels of the ancestral memory. As a primal belief system that preceded established religion, it has its own cosmology and symbolism that displays similar characteristics and stories in other regions, though sometimes different forms depending on the origin.
