The Shamanic Journey


Great Spirit!!! I give you gratitude and humbly ask that you show me the way. Help me see the world as it is, to speak with a voice that allows spirit to speak with me, through me... to move with a mindfulness through the world so I feel my connection with all things... to dance in rhythm with the cosmos...  Great Spirit, help me be an open vessel to learn from all people and all things, to be able to receive the wisdom of our elders and those who’ve come before me.”


All My Relations, Please Show me The Way


The Level One Shamanic Journey is a six month group training where you learn, experience, and practice the core principles of Shamanism as described below.  These draw from the universal shamanic principles found in all traditions from around the world.  It is based on experiencing and applying oneself so they become a part of you and lead you on a powerful path that builds one foundation upon the next.  It is a journey of both great inner work and self-inquiry as it is learning new skills and developing the subtle awarenesses. 


Each month we meet for a whole weekend (5 hours Sat and 5 hour Sun) somewhere outside where we may connect with the elements, spirit animals, and the raw expression of Spirit.  Nature itself is our classroom!  We sit around a fire learning together, honoring the oral tradition of passing on wisdom through storytelling, practicing ceremony and rituals, learning ways of energy healing, and grounding in this deeper connection and rhythm of Spirit constantly manifesting around us.  


Shamanism is a way of perceiving and interacting with the world via Self-Awareness.  Hence this is a path of deep self-exploration. The spirit within all things is constantly communicating with us and Shamanism is a means of joining the conversation.  


This six month Shamanic journey leads you, guides you, and shows you the way to do this.  It teaches you healing modalities and initiates you as a energy healer.  It shares the unseen cycle of nature, how to spot your own cycle and know how to live aligned with its rhythms via foods, rituals, and practices.  It shares how to evoke shamanic experiences, how to connect and communicate with totem animals and nature magic.  It provides you the opportunities to do so.  It teaches you how to shift your own internal state as needed and have greater influence in any area of your life.  You learn the meditations, practices, rituals, and ceremonies for healing, to evoke Elders, to expand your connection of all things while remaining grounded within. This journey provides you the daily rituals to ground in this deeper awareness and connection with all things.  It is showing you what's behind the curtain and how to join in on the dance happening there. OM!

What it entails...


This is a six month journey.  We will meet once a month for a weekend somewhere outside amongst the elements  around a fire.  Sometimes we may meet inside depending on the training we're doing that weekend.


Each weekend includes

  • Ceremonies & Rituals
  • Shamanic meditation and breath techniques
  • Mindfulness Drills and exercises
  • Energy Healing Practice and Initiations
  • Learning new wisdom of the unseen cycles, medicine wheel, earth medicine,  and other skills/learnings

Plus there will be opportunities to join the community on hikes, potlucks, sacred pilgrimages amongst nature,  and other experiences of connecting with nature in a sacred manner, developing your skills, and wisdom.


Our Shamanic Journey is more than just a training, it is being apart of a community and the culture of this community. When you join the Shamanic Journey you are invited to participate in ceremonies, shamanic journey's, dinners, camping and kayaking expeditions etc.  


Welcome to the family!  Below are descriptions of things you'll learn and how we offer The Shamanic Journey.

What You'll Learn

Medicine Wheel 

The Medicine Wheel has been a part of basic shamanic training across the globe.  Just about every culture has a version of it and provides their own unique way of evoking its teachings.  India, Celtic, Native Americans, etc.

It provides a simple way of connecting our individual cycles with the greater circles of life.  It reveals the stages happening within our hearts, minds and bodies in relationship with what's happening outside of ourselves.

It provides us the tools, direction, and understanding of living in greater harmony.

The Medicine wheel gives us a basic frame of reference and helps us understand both our individual mind and communicating with the universal mind.  The Medicine Wheel reveals the basic spokes required to keep our wheel strong.

You'll discover which of your spokes are strong and which one's you need to strengthen.  Over the course of this six month journey you will actively work on these.  You will be honored and recognized as you mend each of your spokes.

Energy Healing Modalities

You will be initiated in Reiki and over the 6 months evolve into a Reiki Master where you can initiate others.  You'll learn various forms of energy healing to help others, yourself, animals, plants, etc.  You'll learn how to heal past experiences, to shift the story and time travel via these modalities.  

You'll receive specific initiations that activate your own healing powers and you'll fine tune your abilities over the next six months.

Along with this you'll hone in your ability to communicate with animals, plants, and the spirit within all things.

Rituals & Ceremonies

Learn various rituals and ceremonies for healing, evoking the Elders, of purification and expanding one's own connection while remaining grounded within.

Ceremony and ritual is a significant part of the shaman's journey.  You'll learn what activates a ritual so that it is effective and produces tangible results you can see in real-time.

The Cycle

There's a powerful unseen cycle we all go through.  We cycle through it daily, have a monthly cycle and even a yearly one.  Most are unaware of it and hence are the adverse affect of it.  They experience life happening to them instead of through them.  

You will learn your cycle, chart it with the movement of the moon, and discover how to flow in rhythm with it.  You'll discover the foods, mediations, rituals, and other practices to not only maintain balance but thrive amongst the dance!

Meditation Practices

Be initiated in a series of mediation and breath techniques that activate heighten awareness and a deeper connection with all things.  Learn the secrets that activate the breath, that charge a mantra, and how to remain grounded while expanding your awareness.  

Fire Ceremony and Magic of Alchemy

You'll learn several fire ceremonies including Agni Hotra.  Within these you'll learn the specific formula of alchemy which is a process of transforming one thing into another... relationship, state of consciousness, or your physical world.  Tapas is sanskrit which means to burn.  It is through this process we discover the process of transformation and how to apply it to any area or thing within our life. OM!

The Wisdom & Lessons hidden in the spaces in between

Shamanism is a subtle science handed down orally.  There are the core principles and structure and then there is the subtle lessons, wisdoms and gems you learn by simply participating.

You will learn in a traditionally way filled with wisdom tales and storytelling... drumming and dance... being exposed to nature and the elements... of simply showing up and allowing Spirit to reveal the messages and teachings it has for you uniquely!  This is a magical experience and you'll receive what spirit has for you uniquely.
