Shamanic Workshops

I am honoured to be a part of the Three Ravens College of Therapeutic Shamanism and to be able to share my passion for shamanism with people in my local area.

As a teacher with the college I offer one day Introduction to Shamanism workshops, introducing people to the joys of shamanic practice and helping them find their way around the shamanic realms.  I also deliver Next Steps days which are one-day workshops covering the nuts and bolts basics of shamanic practice.

A new development for 2018 will see me (as part of a team) starting to deliver Foundation Courses for the college.  These will be slightly further afield in Peebles in the Scottish Borders.

Take a look at the tabs below for full details of the workshops available…

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.
