February 15 - February 16
Michael Harner’s The Way of the Shaman®
The Shamanic Journey
Power and Healing with Beth Beurkens, M.A.
Santa Rosa, California
Saturday, February 15, 2020 – 9:30 AM to 5:00 PM
Sunday, February 16, 2020 – 8:45 AM to 4:15 PM
During this experiential workshop, participants are introduced to core shamanism, the universal and near-universal basic methods of the shaman to enter non-ordinary reality for problem solving and healing. Particular emphasis is placed on the classic shamanic journey, one of the most remarkable visionary methods used by humankind to explore the hidden universe otherwise known mainly through myth and dream. Participants are initiated into shamanic journeying, aided by drumming and other techniques for experiencing the shamanic state of consciousness and for awakening dormant spiritual abilities, including connections with Nature.
Practice includes comparisons by participants of their discoveries in shamanic journeys as well as being introduced to shamanic divination and healing. Students are also provided with methods to discover, and study with, their own individual power animals and spiritual teachers in non-ordinary reality, a classic step in shamanic practice. Participants learn how the journey is utilized for divination and to restore spiritual power and health, and how shamanism can be applied in contemporary daily life to help heal oneself, others, and the planet.
This workshop constitutes the prerequisite for more advanced workshops and training courses with Beth Beurkens and the other authorized faculty members of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies.
