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 is a prerequisite for the Eco Shamanism Training.
How can I learn to journey?
I offer three methods to learn the shaman's journey. The first is over a one day workshop with others. The second is one to one over a day or several weeks and gives you a much more in depth approach and facilitates a greater ability to interpret your journey. The third is via Skype.
Shamanic counselling - learning to journey one to one
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. 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 a day or over the course of four to six sessions. The weekly/fortnightly 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. The day option is closer to a one to one workshop. Both options involve learning about the shaman’s map, meeting with your own personal spirit allies, learning and gaining information from our true counsellors and understanding the use of a continuous drum beat to assist you. Once the day or sessions are complete, you will then be able to journey on your own and use this valuable gift to access the world of spirit. Please note the day session includes a simple lunch and refreshments.
“The gift that Mandy gives is one of timeless wisdom. The tools of shamanism speak to a deep knowing in each of us and Mandy’s gentle skill and down to earth approach makes if eminently accessible to all.”
