The Shamanic Healing Initiatory Process (SHIP)
You will process through five levels of shamanic healing, each an initiation based on one of the 5 Elements. The five initiations each feature a Shamanic Breathwork® journey, utilizing the breath, sound healing through chakra-attuned music, energetic bodywork, soul return and extraction, shamanic art processes, scribing and group processing. Journeyers enter an altered state of consciousness that transforms and integrates trauma experienced earlier in life; creates a connection with their soul and spirit guides; and receive visions about their sacred purpose in the world. You will walk between the worlds: working on physical, emotional, mental, and energetic levels as you learn to embody the elements.
In addition to the guidance of your teachers, you will have the support of a co-journeyer – a fellow student who will assist you with whatever you need during your psycho-spiritual voyage. You will switch roles with your partner halfway through the day, helping to create a nurturing, supportive, and safe space in which all participants can grow together as a community. Upon completion of the elemental journeys, you will learn facilitation skills for Shamanic Breathwork®. There will also be daily practice in Yoga, Pranayama, Meditation, and Astrological insights.
Water: The Spiral Path and Five Cycles of Change
Each time we come back to something, we come back changed. Constant renewal is the shamanic path – the spiral of life. Everything in the universe flows in a spiral. Here we get settled in and see what’s stirred up in ourselves, as we are new in the space and like water, fluid. We connect with our new community and to the new practices.
Earth: Your Family Tree and the Tree of Life
The family we choose is our family of choice. We begin to release the blocks and barriers of our own heart – the habits, patterns, and traumas or wounds developed from our family of origin. Here we see in a solid way what they are, and how to free ourselves. We tap into these family roots and the interconnectedness of the tree of life as we embrace family and friends.
Fire: Meeting the Shadow and Inner Work
Here we shine a light on our dark places – what’s beneath the surface, what’s following you, and what you can’t see. Fire transforms all it touches. In an intense and cathartic initiation, we use the power of fire to burn away our patterns; to release anger, frustration, and blame; and finally, come to a warm heart space.
Spirit: Opening to the Inner Beloved
We all posses an inner beloved and have the capacity to connect to the divine. Here we learn to love our ourselves, our innate gifts and our inner other. Now that we have cleared so much, it is time to see how much we can open our hearts to our own inner self – that part of you that you show up for. Connecting to our inner masculine or feminine, we experience the union of duality.
Air: Rising to the Call of Your Sacred Purpose
The deepest human longing is discovering what we are here to do and why. We embrace forward movement – becoming empowered agents of change, and enabled in our mission. Here we accept the seat of a teacher and learn how to carry this role forward into the world. We step into being the best versions of ourselves as we finally connect to our true life purpose.
