What is Shamanism?
What is the Shamanic Journey?
The purpose of this training is to help you become proficient in the Shamanic Journey which forms the basis of all Shamanic work. You will be taught the steps in how to move your awareness into the parallel reality for the purposes of accessing compassionate guidance, teaching and wisdom for self-development and problem solving.
The Shamanic Journey offers you an opportunity to Initiate and Develop a relationship with Compassionate, Loving, Wise spirits in a safe, supported environment. This work changes peoples lives.
The purpose of the shamanic journey is to obtain answers to questions and to receive helpful and inspiring guidance. Anthropologists have traced the roots of shamanism to the upper paleolithic period which is the late stone age. Our ancestors would have engaged with these methods in order to track food, predict weather changes, and to obtain other advice that would contribute to their survival, health of the people and spiritual well-being.
This is and has always been an ancient problem-solving method.
This is an internal process and involves dialogue between yourself and what you encounter in the safe sacred space of the Shamans territory. The role of the facilitator (myself) is to deliver the method.

What is the Shamanic Journey?
The purpose of the shamanic journey is to obtain answers to questions and to receive helpful and inspiring guidance.
This classic method has been used by indigenous people the world over in order to gather information and to solve problems.
In this case, this is an internal process and involves dialogue between yourself and what you encounter in the safe sacred space of the Shamans territory.
The method we will be working with employs the use of the rhythmic drum beat. The purpose of the drumbeat is to help the brain relax into a Theta brainwave pattern / the Shamanic State of Consciousness (SSC). It is a state whereby mental imagery may arise. This is the ideal mind condition to access the wisdom and power that is available through the Shamanic Journey.
Theta or SSC is associated with the reduction of stress, mental clarity and increased vitality. It is a good state to spend time in on a weekly basis in order to enhance mental and emotional well-being.

Shamanic healing, and shamanic journeys are a complementary method. They are not a substitute for traditional medical treatment and advice or psychotherapy / counselling. However, it is a complimentary method that works well alongside modern medicine and can be of great assistance in developing a holistic approach to the healing of an illness / condition.
It is advised that if a client presents with a serious medical, mental or emotional condition it is important to see a GP / Doctor or health care professional.
As a shamanic practitioner, it is my intention to empower clients to heal their lives and discover their innate sacred gifts. Shamanism addresses the spiritual causes of an illness be it physical, emotional or mental. As I see things in the context of energy, I am not in a position to give a diagnosis from a western medical perspective (as I am not trained in that method).
It is not my intention to compete with the western medical system as in my view shamanism is complimentary and works well to support the client alongside a mainstream medical treatments. Hence, I do not diagnose conditions and I would never interfere with the treatment of a health care professional.
