October 28 - October 29
Shamanism, Dying & Beyond
An Advanced Weekend Workshop*
with Beth Beurkens, M.A.
Saturday, October 28, 2017 – 9:30 AM to 5:00 PM
Sunday, October 29, 2017 – 8:45 AM to 4:15 PM
Participants learn how to deal with the issue of dying and the destiny of souls from a shamanic perspective. The workshop is both for those who wish to learn for themselves, and for those who wish to help others who are in terminal situations or who have already passed on. Experiences to be undertaken include learning how to become experientially familiar with the after-death realms, tracking a person using shamanic journeying, completing unfinished business, helping a person to cross over, and classic psychopomp work.
Shamanism, Dying & Beyond is now one of the FSS prerequisites for the Core Soul Retrieval Training.
Portland is known as the Rose City. Portland is closely tied to the water. The Willamette River runs through its center, while the enormous Columbia River flows along its northern edge, dividing Oregon and Washington. Within a short drive from downtown you can be hiking or wind-surfing in the Columbia Gorge, playing in the sand on the Oregon coast, staring at the crater of Mt. St. Helens or hiking the trails on Mount Hood. Portland is known for its its plethora of top-notch restaurants and is also famous for its coffee and huge Powell’s bookstores.
The Foundation for Shamanic Studies will offer Continuing Education (CE) contact hours/credit (CEU’s) for this workshop. 13 CE credits will be offered for this workshop. Please see the FSS website CE page for how to apply for these credits.
