Energetic Protection Online 

a Life Force Arts Shamanic Level 1 Seminar

Cost: $150 (includes required book)

This is one of three seminars of Life Force Arts Shamanic Training Level 1.
Do you feel drained of energy when you're near certain people or places? Are you an "energetic sponge" who absorbs disturbing emotions of sadness, fear and anger from those around you, such as family members, clients, co-workers, or just people you pass by on the street or bus? Are you exhausted rather than energized by the work you do? Are you experiencing burn out due to chaotic energies or heavy emotions that surround you at work or in your personal life?

If you're ready to stop this power loss and energy drainage, let modern Shamanic Practitioner Joan Forest Mage be your guide in learning Energetic Protection.
  • ~Identify and learn to protect your mental, emotional and spiritual bodies

  • ~Learn to ground your energy, remove energetic blockages and intrusions and prevent energy drainage

  • ~Examine and transform unconscious intentions and core beliefs that may be opening you to energy loss

  • ~Learn practical points on handling relationships that are energetically draining

  • ~Invigorate your body's major energy centers (chakras)

  • ~Align your energy with the Elements (Air, Earth, Water and Fire) to both increase and protect your energy

  • ~Find your Power Animal other helpful spirit guides to help protect you

This is a home study course. Online, you view several videos and written exercises in which Joan shares everything from practical, down-to-earth advice to mystic lore about energy. Follow along, practicing powerful techniques including visualization, breathing and simple body movement. Written assignments based in the book The Psychic Pathway by Sonia Choquette (cost of book is included in the tuition) are given that will help you integrate what you have learned. When you register and pay for the course, you will be given links to the video and the online discussion venue for posting your responses to the assignments, which Joan will review and comment on. This is not a webinar, you can do the assignments at your own pace. The course should be completed within 8 weeks of registering.
No Prerequisite. Required reading: The Psychic Pathway by Sonia Choquette. Cost: $150 (includes required books). This is one of three month-long seminars in Level 1 of Life Force Shamanic Training, a contemporary form of shamanic practice.
