MODULE ONE

WELCOME TO MODULE ONE OF THE ELEMENTS OF SHAMANISM COURSE

Shamanism has been a life changing journey for me and I am humbled to be able to share my life's teachings and knowledge with you all. Shamanism is the path of the wounded healer and it is a spirituality that links you directly to the source of your power and wisdom. I can only guide you but it is you that has the ability to connect to your own power animals and spirit guides for teaching and healing.

 

It is a little different learning online but there are a number of things I would like us all to do before you begin the Course. 

  • Set intentions for yourself. What would you like to learn or know more about, for yourself?

  • Spend a moment connecting in to your fellow participants. Hold intention in your heart for them. Send it out through words or visualisation

  • Set space for yourself to watch the lectures. Light a candle, get a comfy chair or have a journal book at the ready for anything that you might like to write down

  • Enjoy your journey of Self-Exploration!

JOURNEY ONE 

Module One-Journey One

This week's journey will be to the Lower World, which is a place of pristine natural beauty as described in the talk. To connect with a power animal and ask for help, healing and wisdom on a personal issue that you are struggling with in your life at the moment. All instructions were embedded in the first lecture. 

 

But to start, find yourself a comfortable place to lie down and if possible listen with headphones. Let the sound of the drum bring the images to your mind. For some people this can be difficult so you can use your imagination to bring to mind a place you associate with going down into the earth and emerge into the lower world. Your power animal will reveal themselves to you. Ask them if they are your power animal and what they want to show or tell you.

 

Make sure to write down your journey afterwards or draw out the images in the journey. Processing the work afterwards is very important.

For those of you who prefer to listen to a longer track, we have added a 30 min Drumming below.
