Shamanic Healing Certification Part I:
Shamanic Healing: Spiritual Techniques for Diagnosis
3 sessions, Thursdays, April 9 – 23, 2020, 6:00 – 9:00 pm
Members $215 / Nonmembers $240
Free Intro on Thursday, April 2 at 6:00 pm
Shamans have for millennia been able to “see” into their patients’ physical, emotional and energetic bodies. By journeying in non-ordinary reality to connect with their spirit guides about the root causes of, and best cures for, their clients’ conditions, they can then decide on the best most effective path for healing. This training includes: Building relationships with spirit helpers, such as power animals, ethereal teachers, Huachas (nature’s sacred objects); eye scanning to perceive the “three bodies”; egg diagnostic readings; candle-flame reading; introduction to shamanic palm reading; stone divination; developing intuitive hands; and the art of shamanic counseling.
Note: Please bring a clear drinking glass with no markings and four raw brown eggs.

Shamanic Healing: Ancient Energy Cleansing Techniques

La Limpia—the mystical and practical energy purification ceremonies
La Limpia is a distinctive ancient energy-cleansing ceremony used in Ecuador when people become emotionally/physically sick or imbalanced due to bad energies (bad luck, evil eye, jealousy, curses, entity attachments or possession, etc.), or are experiencing problems with relationships, money, or other misfortunes. This method rebalances the person’s energetic field; extracts and lifts negativity; and replaces it with positive vibrations, protection and renewed vigor.
The training includes: spirit helper communication; activating your Soul’s song; altar settings; camay-blowing with rum; sacred objects retrieval and empowerment; negative energy release – using eggs, feathers, leaves, smoke, etc.; harmonizing the energy field with flowers, herbs, oils, waters, etc.; protection techniques/blessing methods; cord-cutting; special diets for integration; and home/land Limpias.
Shamanic Healing Certification Part III:
Soul Mending: Healing Trauma with Soul Retrieval
4 sessions, Thursdays, July 16 – August 6, 2020, 6:00 – 9:00 pm
Members $280 / Nonmembers $315
Free Intro on Thursday, July 9 at 6:00 pm
Soul Mending—Diagnose, locate, retrieve and integrate lost fractured soul parts, to heal long-held traumas patterns.
Traumatic experiences often unconsciously force the psyche to suppress painful feelings to continue functioning in everyday life, and numb our senses to carry on a survival strategy, repeating it in a vicious circle. This is viewed as “soul loss”— the wounding/fractioning of a person’s spirit due as a cause of physical/psychological dysfunction. Shamans journey to the spirit world, retrieve the lost part, and reintegrate it into the client’s energy field to return them into wholeness.
This training will include: techniques to travel to the spirit world, and obtain spirit guides; learn to journey with partners and long-distance; diagnose soul-loss symptoms and causes; develop the ability to “see” the source of our own and others’ traumas; perform soul retrieval; integration techniques; secret soul gardening; and much more.
