Learn the ancient shamanic journey meditation: traveling to the spirit realm to gain wisdom and healing from angels, ancestors, totem animals and other helpful spiritual beings. To the classic shamanic drumbeat, you will journey to the three territories of non-ordinary reality to begin building relationships with your own group of spirit helpers. Learn about shamanic cosmology, the history and ethical basis of shamanism, and the ways shamanic practice applies to the modern world and to healing the web of all life. No previous experience necessary. Please bring a rattle, and a pen and notebook. Required reading: Singing The Soul Back Home by Caitlin Matthews. Cost: $150 (cost includes required book).

This is one of three seminars in Level 1 of Life Force Arts Shamanic Training, a contemporary form of shamanic practice. The three seminars in Level 1 are: Energetic Protection, Shamanic Journeying and Sensing Spirit. The conclusion of the seminar is an in-person, 8 hour workshop, from 9:30 AM - 5:30 PM on the last day of the seminar. You can start Level 1 with any of the three seminars. No prerequisites.
