Otter Dance Earth Medicine Core Shamanism Course (Spring Session)
April 9, 2016$1080
This training is for those who are called to this spiritual path of service in a deeply connected way.
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 the 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 14 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.
One Saturday each month students will come together for a full day of 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 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.
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.
