"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.
SHAMANISM FOR INSPIRED LOCAL AND GLOBAL CHANGE
During challenging times, shamanic work, when combined with ordinary reality knowledge and action, can make an immense contribution toward effective long-term solutions for personal, community, and global problems. Shamanic divination (asking the fully compassionate spirits for answers to questions) is particularly helpful in providing inspired and workable ways to address complex issues in ordinary reality.
This workshop offers practical methods to gain and apply wisdom from the spirits to resolve persistent problems facing humanity, our precious Earth, and its inhabitants.
In this workshop, you will:
Practice applying shamanic divination/ journeying methods to the problem-solving process
Use shamanic divination to gain insight into real-world issues you care about
Examine ethical guidelines and issues of permission
Look at some of the personal benefits of spirit-inspired community action
Explore possible ways to ethically bring the power of the compassionate spirits to our world
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 12 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.
