Six long weekends beginning in April 2019 - Ragmans Farm, Gloucestershire with an optional certificate
A series of long weekends from April 2019 to July 2020 studying the contemporary areas of shamanism with an emphasis on eco reciprocity. You will be embarking on your own personal eco shamanic journey within a community of like minded beings (and the more than human world) whilst also learning all the major shamanic healing techniques including the new Eco Mapping/Healing technique. Scroll down for dates and cost.
Application process: to join this training please submit an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org explaining your interest in this course. You should include details of why you wish to join the course, any previous shamanic experience and any work in the area of self development and a little about your interests and general health too. This will be followed up with a brief phone conversation if I have not already met you on a workshop or other event. When applying you will need to pay the deposit fee. Should you not gain a place on the training the full deposit will be refunded to you.
You will need to know how to journey shamanically and there is an opportunity to learn this technique at a Learn the Shaman's Journey workshop (click here to go the page) or on a one to one basis with me. Alternatively you may be able to find someone local to you who will teach you this technique.
A bursary fund is being established and if you would like to apply for a bursary (funds permitting) please specify this in your application email.
Attendance at one of my Eco Shamanism Day workshops will give you an idea of what to expect on this workshop although this is NOT compulsory. You will also need a shamanic drum - this can be borrowed and does not need to be owned.
A commitment to all six weekends is required.

Spirits of land and nature, space and place (genius loci); accessing places and spaces of power; connecting to the more than human world (plants, animals and other earth forms).
Vision quest - understanding the process of the journey within and without. Calling for a vision. Working with labyrinths.
The elements - a deep look at fire, earth, air and water (and the seasonal cycles of Sun and Moon).
Energetic medicine techniques and the recovery of power - identifying and remedying misplaced energy and power in humans and the more than human world.
Soul retrieval - the return of spirit essences for a more fulfilled life, for you and others, and the more than human world.
Eco Mapping - middle world nature/spirit healing for humans using perception and perspective.
Oracular work focussing on divination.
Sustainable living practises - you are what you eat, travelling lightly, future thinking, remote viewing.
The shamans horse (drum, rattle, sistrum and bell) - healing circles and the instrument’s voice or song / the nature of sound.
Psychopomp (death and dying) - assisting the dying and dead to find their true place of rest.
The beginning and end game - the nature of time, connection to source, authenticity, the ego and icons.
