Foundation Level Shamanic Practitioner’s Course
Foundation Level Shamanic Practitioner’s Course, Module One:
The Shamanic Soul
This first module of the Foundation Level Shamanic Practitioner’s Course, highlights the origin and philosophy behind the ancient practice of Shamanism, the oldest Spiritual discipline known to us and how it has evolved throughout the centuries to modern-day Shamanic practice, which is so necessary in our 21st Century world. We will look at the how the Shamanic Practitioner interacts and builds life-long relationships with Spirit Guides, Ancestors, Power animals, Angels and the Energies of the Land. How the Shamanic ‘Otherworld’ is structured and most importantly, this module teaches the practical core aspects of the ‘Shamanic Journey’. This is the first step in the ‘Journey of the Shaman’ and discovering your Shamanic Soul. Participation in this one day module offers 100 points towards the overall point score for full Practitionership in Shamanism.
Foundation Level Shamanic Practitioner’s Course, Module Two:
The Journey of the Wolf: Discovering Your Soul Path
This second module of the Foundation Level Shamanic Practitioner’s Course deals directly and personally with where the student is currently at in their Spiritual journey and where they have come from. It’s impossible to know where you are, if you are unaware of where you came from. This module deals directly with the people we once where, where we are and where we would like to be going, what we could have done better in our lives and developing the more Spiritual person we wish to become. This is hugely important on the path of the Shamanic Practitioner, the path of being authentic and real, especially in what can, at times, be a very ‘false’ world. To practice the ways of the Shaman and guide others on their Spiritual path, we must, ourselves, be sure of our own journey and how to achieve our goals and find our direction. This module teaches reliance and trust in our Spirit Guides to see us through the difficult times and recognise that we are Spirits in body first and not just a body with a Spirit. We will also look at some of the Shamanic rituals, techniques and tools that will help us in the work that we do. Participation in this module offers 100 points towards full practitionership in Shamanism.
Foundation Level Shamanic Practitioner’s Course, Module Three:
The Path of the Shamanic Healer
This third module in the Foundation Level Shamanic Practitioner’s Course, The Path of the Shamanic Healer, looks at the meaning of healing in the Spiritual context and the various healing techniques employed by the Shamanic Practitioner. The Shamanic Practitioner is renowned for the ability to heal and to bring balance to those who seek their help. In this module, we will look at the basis of therapies such as Soul Retrieval and what is the consequence of Soul Loss, Past Life Healing and Ancestral healing. The Shamanic Practitioner is a ‘worker with energy’ and one of the most important tasks for the Practitioner is to clear, or extract negative energy from their clients. Negative energy can attach to us in many ways, from past life trauma, as a result of ancestral energies passed down the family line and even, as a consequence of our everyday lives. It is the role of the Shamanic Practitioner to cleanse and balance these energies. We will look at how the Shamanic Practitioner goes about these processes, through connection with Spirit and through the use of sound, frequency and vibration. Finally, we will provide an overview on one of the most beautiful and essential Shamanic roles, that of the Shamanic Psychopomp, the one that guides souls through the gateway of death and into the loving hands of their Spirit Guides. Participation in this module offers 100 points towards full practitionership in Shamanism.
Foundation Level Shamanic Practitioner’s Course, Module Four:
The Way of the Snake: Masks of Transformation
In module four in the Foundation Level Shamanic Practitioner’s Course: The Way of the Snake: Masks of Transformation, we will again look at the Spiritual path of the student and help develop the apprentice Shamanic Practitioner’s Spiritual goals and direction. As the Snake sheds its skin, so can we. It is never too late, or too difficult, to address those aspects of our lives that are not working and which do not fit into our ‘Spiritual future’ life. We can change these aspects of our lives by changing our personal stories and be the person we truly want to be. In this module, with the help of our Spirit Guides and the influence of Jungian psychology, we will be all we can be. We will look at the false masks we have worn to fit in to our toxic societies and our toxic relationships. As a marker for change in this module, we will build a mask representing the person we once were and the negativity we carried, when it is finished, we will destroy this mask and build a mask for the person that we truly are and what we want to bring into our lives. This is a symbolic representation of us ‘shedding our skin’. In this module also, we will look at some of the other Shamanic skills necessary for the Practitioner, including the Vision Quest and Shamanic divination, which will also help us on our Spiritual path. Participation in this module offers 100 points towards full practitionership in Shamanism.
