This is a one day course designed to teach you how to do a Shamanic Journey.  Shamanic  journeying is a very powerful technique for personal growth and healing.  Shamanism is an ancient form of spiritual healing, it is believed to be the oldest form of healing on the planet dating back approximately thirty thousand years. It has been found in many indigenous cultures in North and South America, Australia, New Zealand, Central and Northern Asia, Eastern and Northern Europe and Africa.  A shamanic practitioner is a healer who moves into altered states of consciousness to access different realities in the spirit world in order to bring back healing, information and power.   The word shaman means “one who sees in the dark,” and widely refers to those who are medicine women/men, healers and seers. Shamans never work alone, they always work in conjunction with the helping spirits who guide them in providing what is needed for healing. 

This introductory course will teach you how to do a Shamanic Journey for yourself and for others. It is the basic foundation course that is a prerequisite for any other more advanced Shamanic studies, such as Ancestral Healing, Shamanic Divination, Power Animal Retrieval, Shamanic  Extraction, Soul Retrieval, etc.  In this workshop you will learn how to journey to different dimensions in non-ordinary reality such as the Lower World and Upper World; this is done by using percussive sound such as drumming and rattling. Within these other dimensions you will meet your helping spirits- this course will focus on meeting with a Power Animal and a Teacher in Spirit. The techniques that you learn in this course, as well as the teachers and guides that you will meet, will support you long after the workshop as you move forward on your spiritual path. The Shamanic Journey is a tool which supports all life goals and all forms of healing. Shamanism is the path of direct revelation – it is a way of directly accessing spiritual information to support your own healing and the healing of others. 

This course would be helpful to you if:

  • You are looking for new self-care tools to stay grounded during stressful times

  • You’re looking to try something different for your own personal healing

  • You are seeking to deepen your own spiritual connection

  • You would like to meet your Spirit Helpers and Allies, or deepen your already existing connection

  • You are a practitioner or psychotherapist looking for new tools to further support your clients on their healing journey

  • You work in a healing profession or social services and are looking for ways to recharge yourself to avoid burnout and feeling depleted

  • You want to be part of a loving, supportive and safe spiritual community seeking to bring more love, light and kindness to their own lives and to the larger world

Shamanic Psychopomp
Shamanic Shadow Work
shamanic shadow work

Date:  TBD 

Time:  9am - 6pm

Cost:  Early bird registration $115


Prerequisites:  None

A exploration of shamanic techniques for identifying, accepting and integrating our own shadow energies in a healthy and empowering way. This course will emphasize a deep exploration of our relationship with our shadow energies. It will also identify techniques for finding the blessings within our shadow energies, and how to utilize the messages of the shadow as a doorway to access our greatest gifts and life purpose.

Working on our shadows is critical at this time in our collective. It is raw, real, vulnerable, and it is deeply transformative and life changing. It is about cultivating unconditional self love for ALL of the parts of you that make you YOU. I invite you to challenge yourself to look at those parts of you that you resist and don't like, those parts of you that make you feel unlovable, and to open yourself up to finding the incredible gifts that are within them. Self love is a journey with many layers, and learning to love these "darker" sides of ourselves is a necessary part of the work. This work will be held in an environment of love, safety, intention and gratitude. You may contact me by email or phone with any questions about the course. 

shamanic soul retrieval training





Pre-requisite: Experience and confidence in shamanic journeying skills, as well as good contact with power animals and teachers in non-ordinary reality, is a requirement for this training. All interested participants will complete a questionnaire to determine if this training is an appropriate fit. Registration may be submitted upon approval of the questionnaire. 

Course Description

This five-day residential workshop is designed exclusively for those who wish to bring shamanic healing techniques into their practice with others. Participants will be trained to work with the issue of soul loss, explore the experience of partial soul loss resulting from personal trauma and illness, and will learn how to track a person’s soul and return lost essence to that individual.

Particular emphasis will be placed on integrating this potent healing process in a modern day culture. Training will be given on developing communication skills that help the practitioner tell healing stories to their clients based on the spiritual information received in their journeys.

The course also focuses on the important aspect of life after soul retrieval… how to create a healthier life after healing has taken place. Individuals attending the training will perform and receive a soul retrieval during the course of the week, and are given extensive instruction on how to work with clients after a soul retrieval through the use of shamanic journeying, ritual, and ceremony. This work results in creating long term healing.

About Soul Retrieval

Everyone experiences what shamans would call 'soul loss.'  Soul loss happens in a person's life typically as a result of some traumatic incident (an accident, any type of abuse or assault, the loss of a loved one, illness, being in a natural disaster, surgery, addiction, experiences of embarrassment or ridicule, etc.).  Any event that causes a person shock can cause soul loss.  During these traumatic incidents a piece of our soul may leave in order to protect us from the immense pain that we would experience if we were fully present in our bodies at that time.

Soul loss in the moment of trauma is not a bad thing, however, if soul parts do not return on their own after the traumatic moment has passed this is when they can begin to cause problems (or symptoms) for people.  Symptoms of soul loss can include some of the following:  not feeling fully alive or fully in your body, feelings of emptiness, chronic depression or anxiety, fear, PTSD, immune system problems or chronic illness, chronic misfortune, addictions, grief that does not resolve, lacking memory of some parts of your life, low self-esteem, lack of self-worth and self-love, low self-confidence; etc.


In a soul retrieval session, it is the role of the shamanic practitioner to retrieve the soul essence and return it to the person.  The practitioner will also teach the client how to integrate these new essences into their lives in a loving, powerful and meaningful way.  The effects of a soul retrieval session are incredibly profound and life changing.  In some cases they can even result in instantaneous and miraculous healing.  In all cases, a shamanic soul retrieval session can result in a greatly improved quality of life, with an increased sense of authenticity, power and presence in the world.  This work can also be done for companion animals and the Earth with the same powerful healing results.

Course Description:

A virtual, experiential series exploring unique, deep, and powerful healing rituals to assist us in our personal goals of transformation.  Each week will introduce one new ritual practice centered around a different healing topic. This is not a course to gain an intellectual understanding of different ritual practices. Rather, it is an immersion experience in which we will dive deep into our healing and vulnerability, and will practice a different ritual together from beginning to end each week.    

WEEK ONE (11/04/20)  Creating Boundaries, Reclaiming Power

A powerful ritual to establish healthy boundaries, identify authentic capacity and desire, reclaim personal power, and develop an awareness of the people or situations in our lives that are draining our energy. 

WEEK TWO (11/11/20)  Healing Body Image, Releasing Cellular Traumas

An empowering, transformative ritual to bring healing to the relationship that we have with our sacred bodies. Whether you are healing from unhealthy body image or repairing issues of trust with chronic pain or illness, this ritual provides an opportunity to release shame, disappointment, disapproval or mistrust in the body. It provides an opportunity to forgive ourselves, to love our bodies just as they as, and to begin looking at some of the things we are carrying within the body. The body is mostly water, and it can carry the memories and emotions of many of our experiences. This ritual will also provide a practice of identifying and releasing traumas that are stored in the body to lighten the energetic load of what the body is carrying. 

WEEK THREE (11/18/20)  Releasing Grief, Receiving Love

A deep healing ritual to identify, access and release the primal energy of grief from the body. Connect with the authentic voice and sound of your grief, and experience the vast, expansive, and loving state that comes from allowing this deep release in the body. This ritual will introduce a practice of unraveling our grief, transforming it, and transferring it out of the body.
