"Excellent, intense, and unexpected. I’ve been journeying and studying for years, and there were plenty of surprises, emotional moments, and solid focused information." – Allison R.
SHAMAN AS PSYCHOPOMP
Shamans are concerned with the human soul, with healing during life and assisting the soul's passage out of the Middle World after death. Familiar with the realms of the dead, a shaman can act as a psychopomp - a conductor of souls. A trained shamanic practitioner is able to guide the soul of a deceased person out of the Middle World to a place where the soul can receive help in taking the next step on its path. The focus of this training is on learning and practicing the psychopomp method.
In this fully experiential workshop, you will have the opportunity to:
Explore what happens for human souls from a core shamanic perspective after they leave the body - the "destiny of human souls" in the Upper, Lower, and Middle Worlds
Learn and practice the psychopomp method to help the souls of the deceased out of the Middle World to a better place
How to locate a soul in the Middle World that may be stuck and in need of help
How to obtain the soul's permission to offer shamanic assistance
How to guide the soul to a place in the Upper or Lower World where it will be helped to continue on its journey.
This experiential online training is offered via Zoom. Participants will see and hear each other and interact in pairs and small groups as well as in the full circle. All students **must participate** with audio/video and access the meeting through their own individual devices. Instructions for Zoom and workshop access will be provided after registration. The course consists of 10.5 hours of training.
What You Need
Please bring the following items to the Zoom workshop:
notebook/pen to take notes
eye covering (bandanna or mindfold) to block ambient light
blanket if you tend to get cold easily
If you'd like recommendations for items that Amara uses in her in-person workshops, click HERE.
Before the workshop begins, select a private location where you will not be disturbed. Consider a comfortable chair or place to sit/lie down for journeys. You might also like to use headphones or ear buds for an easier listening experience (but these are not necessary).
NOTE: The use of a laptop/desktop computer, or at minimum a tablet, is recommended for this workshop. A smart phone screen is too small for effectively viewing other participants during the direct healing practices. AC power is suggested. Please download the latest version of the Zoom app the day of the workshop so you can fully participate. Download participant instructions HERE, including audio/video settings.
