2019 Shamanic Studies-Otter Dance School of Earth Medicine

May 31, 2019 @ 10:00 am - June 2, 2019 @ 3:00 pm

$826

The Otter Dance School of Earth Medicine is a bridge between the ancient teachings and the modern world. We create a safe space for exploration and growth while knowing that we are all individuals bringing our own experiences into the world.

Shamanism is an ancient healing tradition and a way of life from cultures around the planet. The teachings of shamanism focus on our connection to nature and promote well-being of all creation.

Essential aspects of the shamanic path include journeying, ceremony, sacred dance and pilgrimages to places of power in nature. Through these techniques the shamanic circle embraces us, unifying our lives with strength, healing and love.

A Shaman is an intermediary between this world and the spirit world. They act on behalf of the community; conducting ceremonial rituals, healing the people, and helping to guide others on the shamanic path. A Shaman’s life belongs to the village and it is their responsibility to ensure the well-being of the family, the community and all of creation. In this way the shaman helps to maintain balance and harmony on both a personal and planetary level.

During these sessions we will explore the basics of shamanism and the path of being in service to the People. Robbie, Otter Woman Standing has been on this spiritual path for 18 years and has learned from many teachers around the globe. Her understanding of shamanism grows every day with every interaction. She is in service to the people and has dedicated her life to these teachings.

Each session students will come together for hands-on exploration and training in shamanic ceremonies, healing practices, and energy work. Students will learn to create your own Medicine tools, Sacred bundles and Medicine Drums and Rattles and to step into and hold Ceremony. You will be asked to explore these practices further each month between sessions and will be given work to complete before the next session.

Each student will have a monthly mentoring call with a Teacher/Practitioner, and 4 Shamanic Healing sessions with Robbie through out the year.

The online teaching from Robbie, A HEALER’S GUIDE TO THE WORLD, is included in the tuition. These 9 webinars will be sent to the students between Part One and Part Two of the training.

If it is time for you to step onto this Path of Service, this teaching will help you open your heart and see the truth of yourself. This course will challenge you to bring forward the authentic and tangible Healer that is within you. It will also empower you to remember your connection to all that is Sacred, to all our Relations and to Mother Earth.
