Shamanism is our most ancient spiritual tradition. It has been practised for tens of thousands of years in every part of the world where humans have settled. It is the spiritual practice that the overwhelming majority of our ancestors practised, going way back into human history. It has seen cultures rise and fall. The fact that it has survived and thrived is testament to its truth, power and usefulness. It is in itself not a religion, and need not be incompatible with any religious practice.

Throughout its long and varied history, shamanism has taken many forms, appropriate to the culture it has found itself in. Therapeutic Shamanism combines the principles of shamanic work with those of modern counselling and psychotherapy. It is highly relevant to modern life and its dis-eases. It provides an easily-learnt tool kit of techniques and methods that are profoundly useful for personal healing, help with life issues, raising self-awareness, personal and spiritual development, and much more.

This experiential course covers the basics of shamanic practice. It is usually an eye-opening experience that opens up a rich and amazing world of possibilities. Participants will be shown simple yet profound techniques to enter shamanic reality to reconnect to their own spirituality. No prior experience is necessary. The course will include…

  • the history of shamanism
  • the key concepts of the shamanic universe
  • how to enter a shamanic ‘journey’
  • finding your ‘power animal’
  • the basics of how to journey for others

Prior booking is essential. Attendance on this course enables one to apply for the foundation and advanced courses at The Three Ravens College of Therapeutic Shamanism.

As you begin to develop your shamanic practice you will eventually seek out additional guides other than your power animal.

On this one day workshop we will explore the reasons for and practicalities of meeting and working with additional lower world guides.

By the end of the day you will have met and got to know at least one lower world human guide, started to map out the territory where they live, and be able to identify other sources of lower world help and know where to call on them should the need arise.

Shamanic practitioners across the world journey regularly into non-ordinary reality and it is through this ongoing relationship with the guides and peoples in the shamanic realms that a prac-titioner develops their skills and furthers their spiritual development on this path. It is an essential part of becoming an effective shamanic practitioner.

The shamanic path though is not without its challenges and people often find they struggle to commit to integrating a regular journeying practice into their hectic lifestyles. People frequently comment that it is difficult to integrate this into your way of life when others around you are not practicing.

For this reason our group has been established to support shamanic practitioners of all experience levels in deepening their shamanic work. We find strength in community and this helps us generate the energy and momentum for practice when alone.

Beginners and those with experience alike can find benefit in joining the circle. As a diverse group of people with different experiences we all have something to learn from each other and can bolster each other’s development in different ways.

In 2016 the groups will be themed towards a year of living shamanically.

Activities at each meeting may include journeying for self, journeying for others within the group, and exploring ways in which to take shamanic practice into our wider lives and using it to serve the earth and our community.

This group is open to all people who have attended a minimum of an introductory workshop with the Three Ravens College of Therapeutic Shamanism.
