What is shamanic journeying?
Shamans use a journeying technique to access the world of spirit. It is the cornerstone of their work and involves moving their awareness from one reality to another using a specific method. During the journey a shaman seeks information, guidance and healing directly from spirits who are both compassionate and omniscient. It is a gift that can be learned by anyone.
Being able to journey shamanically is a prerequisite for the Eco Shamanism Training.

A day to explore shamanism, to understand and experience simple ceremony and the use of personal power in an egoless practice with a dedicated practitioner. You will learn how to use the shaman's journeying technique, explore the shaman's map and practise this time tested method to gain information, advice and healing in your daily life using your new found skills. You will also learn how to retrieve a power animal.

Learning to journey is a wonderful life enhancing skill. Many people feel that they learn much better on a one to one basis rather than in a group. You will learn how to journey as if you were in a workshop although you will, of course, get individual attention and the opportunity to delve into the interpretation of your own personal journeys. Please note that this day session includes a simple vegetarian lunch and refreshments.

The benefits of learning the technique this way are several but mainly that there is a more in depth approach and a greater focus on the ability to interpret your journey. This one to one method is often called ‘Shamanic Counselling’ as shamans regard the spirits as our true counsellors. It can be learned over the course of four to six sessions. The weekly/fortnightly (or more) sessions option employs a simple recording device to record the journey as it is encountered and voiced - an effective way of replicating the traditional shaman's journey. This option involves a far more detailed introduction to journeying and often becomes a healing journey in itself. Once the sessions are complete, you will then be able to journey on your own and use this valuable gift to access the world of spirit.
