About the Course

The Year 1 Foundation Training in Shamanism is for you if you wish  to go deeper in your self-development while walking your spiritual path. It is also for you if you wish to develop your gifts further and engage into year 2 with shamanic practitioner teachings by answering a call from Spirit to become deeply connected with your medicine.     

The Year 1 course is designed to help you build a solid inner foundation as an individual and connect with your medicine.

Modules of the Course

It is through understanding and experiencing different realities that the shaman-healer is able to move between worlds bringing the gift of healing for self and his community. When we master moving between realms, allies and powers are identified to assist with the healing at hand or simply with our daily life. Walking the Shaman's Path covers journeying into the spirit world to connect with our guides and power animals. Journeying for the self and journeying for a friend. Teachings on the Cosmology of the Tree of Life on the Three Worlds: Upper World, Lower World and Middle World. We will also learn about our owm personal Animal Totem.

By understanding, feeling and bringing the teachings of the Medicine Wheel into our body and our life, we will always have a map to refer to and to shows us exactly where we are. This way we can remove or heal blockages and move forward at ease. By navigating with this map we can access more of our potential power, find our centre and live a more balanced, authentic and fulfilled life. The teachings of Medicine wheel also covers the pshycological, emotional, physical and spiritual dimensions of the self. We will cover East, South, West, North, Above, Below and the Centre.

Life is energy. All physical and spiritual sensation is, on all levels, energy vibrating. What we and others experience as depression, fear, stress, negative thoughts and bad feelings are energies vibrating at "low" frequencies. Energy transformation, energetic healing, aura cleansing and self awareness are some techniques to transform energies and expand into our full potential as human beings and healers. Healers of the self, others and our planet.

Ceremonies are extremelly important in the Shamanic path. Each Gateway we open can be honoured with a specific ceremony of healing: East, South, West, North, Above, Below and the Centre. Ceremony is food for our Spirit. When our Spirit is strong, our body is strong, our mind is strong. The intention of this weekend is to deepen your connection with Spirit, remove us (Mark and Claudia ) out of the way as your teachers and introduce Nature and the Spirits as your real teachers.

The Spiritual Warrior's battle is concerned with the inner life far more than the outer life. Her/his path is the path of great understanding of the self and the Universe around us. Healing of the self and consequently people and planetary healing is possible through the inner journey of awakening the warrior, overcoming the ego's limitations and engaging the enemy within, then seek vision and manifest that vision into the world. The Spiritual Warrior seeks visions that benefits all and is centred in love.

About the Course

This course will take you further in the path of connecting deeply with your medicine in this wonderful path of service and heart. The practitioner group meets every 4 to 6 weeks. Training at Practitioner level includes theory, demonstration, practice, case studies and access to support and supervision. Practitioners can, after completing all modules of the course and case studies, be insured to practice on a professional level. Ceremonies and nature are at the heart of shamanism and are also included in our weekends. 

Modules of the Course

When we suffer a trauma, be it small or major, a part of our soul, a part of our essence flees our body departing to safety leaving us to cope or survive. Sometimes it can also happen that we give away parts of ourselves to someone we love, or through abuse or neglect we may lose a soul part. Soul loss is a process that helps us cope mentally, physically and emotionally with trauma. Part of being human is having this adaptation mechanism for our survival. That part of us - our essence or life force - has the ability to live in other dimensions because we are, by nature, multidimensional beings. When soul loss occurs, we are left with a feeling that something is missing but we are not quite sure what that is. Sometimes it is a sense of not being here, not being present, sometimes it is a sense of confusion, not being able to have clarity or direction, sometimes it is being stuck in enacting suffering and pain, depression may set in, suicidal thoughts haunt us. Childhood trauma is also a very common reason for needing soul retrieval. With the intervention of a shamanic practitioner, the guides will tell and retrieve the soul parts that need to come back to help solve a specific problem. When a healing takes place at a soul level, when the re-union and integration takes place, very often, it has an effect in all other levels: physical, emotional and mental. Soul retrieval, although very simple, is one of the most powerful shamanic healing one can have.

Developing a bit further, challenging all our assumptions, we will now explore the process of taking a step back and simply facilitating a soul retrieval by guiding the client. How to identify if the client is empowered enough, how to monitor the process, how to trust and let Spirit do the work. There is no better feeling then the feeling of seeing your client empowered and in charge of their own healing process. When your client is fully empowered is when real healing takes place.

A very common type of energetic illness and complain brought for Shamanic practitioners to work on is the removal of intrusive energies. If for whatever reason we have a hole in our energy field, negative energies can come and stay in that space. Those energies can manifest themselves as negative thoughts, physical illnesses or pain and sometimes even suicidal thoughts. Those energies can also be coming from other people e.g. envy, bad thoughts, anger or rage. If they are there for a very long time, they become entities who have their own mind and are able to control the person's thoughts and feelings. Fully formed entities can also attach themselves to people and zap their energy. During the weekend we will learn to identify when an extraction work is needed and how to perform an extraction. This is another ancient healing technique where the shamanic practitoner has to have sufficient power, therefore, the importance of learning to be ruthless, yet compassionate, is fundamental for this work.

Psychopomp work: One of the most important roles of the Shamanic practitioner is to help lost souls to complete their journey into the afterworld. Compassion and unconditional love are the essential powers to accomplish this work.

House Cleansing: removing trapped energies, transforming places of negativity, space and house clearing are also part of the teachings this weekend.

As the veils between the spiritual and the physical worlds are becoming thinner and thinner, past life problems and memories have been one of the main causes for people to seek shamanic help. We are all multidimentional beings and on the shamanic path time does not exist, therefore we can journey back into past lives for healing purposes.

We will finish the course celebrating who you are and sharing your shamanic gifts with your people. With the Creative Community work we want you to explore how is it to step into your power and fully become a shamanic practitioner. You will be given the opportunity to share your gifts and unique ways with others in the group by facilitating 1 1/2 hours of shamanic work for your group.

About the Course

The 7 Gateways of Consciousness: South, West, North, East, Above, Below and the Centre.

This advanced work is an opportunity for you to go deeper into your medicine. We will work with the 7 Gateways of Consciousness, study and practice how to help your clients to heal through ceremonies. Empowerment, integrity, authenticity and individual Ceremonies for healing your people is the foundation of this advanced work. Come to empower your community and be empowered.

Modules of the Course

Guided Meditation Teacher training. The meditation techniques within this course are drawn from thirty years of intuitive guidance, inspirations and healing experiences to create a safe, comfortable practice of healing (for self and others), relaxation and inner growth. Our guided meditation practice aims to awaken the inner senses, the deeper gifts of perception which lie within each of us. It is through these inner senses we connect to a greater reality within and can glimpse a vision of our true selves as well as root a deep practice for healing and long term well being for the self and for others. For each physical sense, we have five corresponding internal senses and more.

Here we will work with the inner child and Sacred Council to heal the heart. 90% of the problems people come for shamanic healing is childhood trauma related. With this work you will develop the appropriate skills to support the healing of traumas for your clients. You will connect with your Sacred Council for healing, advise, insights and empowerment. One can only come from the heart if the heart is open, strong and free from past childhood traumas.

Working with the shadow self and the ego self: Here we deepen our understanding of the shadow and expand our awareness of how the ego limits beliefs and thoughts. Through this gateway we can assist our clients to engage with the shadow and the ego to heal, transform, transcend and embrace spiritual gifts and powers.

Through the consciousness of the North gateway we walk the ancestral path to reconnect with our own lineage for healing. The North gateway holds the consciousness of service to the community. Included in this weekend is DNA work, changing the DNA in the ancestral line for healing purposes and also ceremony to undo curses and black magic, untanglying the energies for healing to unfold.

With this work you will transcend time and the self. Helping your clients manifest a positive life path, learning to manifest supportive loving relationships, rewarding jobs and careers. What is for the good of all is in line with the laws of the Universe. Learn how to receive inspiration from above and manifest it in the middle world.

Here you will have the opportunity to fully immerse with our Earth Mother with a ceremonial weekend working in Nature with the 4 Shields. With your full connection with your guides and being held by Nature, you will be taken through the 4 shields to receive guidance and teachings to take back to your people and help them with their healing journey. Sharing and mirrowing the spiritual story back to you are part of this weekend.

As multidimensional beings our work is to recognise and integrate the fragmented parts of ourselves and connect deeper with our Spirit. As we become more aware and integrate the different aspects of ourselves through the 7 gateways, we have the opportunity to fully become who we truly are with integrity and authenticity, grounding more and more our spiritual life purpose and powers. The essence of this work is to help you centre yourself, connect deeper with your trueself, access deeper inner knowing, cennect deeper with your guides, gathering and sharing that wisdom in service to your community.
