Living Shamanism - 9 month Shamanic Apprenticeship

This series of workshops is an investment in your own connection with the spirits around you: Living shamanism brings to you a clear purpose to improve your life and that of all who share it with you, the human and the other-than-human. The joint aims are clarity and facility: Clarity, in this case, means that this work is designed to help each participant find their authentic and clear connection with the wise and compassionate beings behind the veil and a direct connection with those spirits who are here with us - the denizens of the land. Facility means that part of the focus of the on-going work is to facilitate the embodiment of what begins as 'workshop experiences' into your ordinary reality.  

With thoroughness and integrity we will explore shamanism in both ordinary and non-ordinary reality, learning and experiencing with all aspects of our being. Some of the work will take place outside (quite possibly in all weathers - this is Dartmoor!) and some will be directed voyages of discovery among the spirits, through healing practices, rituals, celebrations, songs and dances. I will offer you a reading list, ask you to undertake 'homework' between the meetings and be available to you to answer questions as you deepen into your practice. We will step outside of time and gather to us the wisdom of lifetimes.  

ANCIENT WAYS - (workshop) is a pre-requisite for this training.  It can be booked as a private training, details of this can be found on the workshops page, or in 2017 this introductory workshop is taking place on the following dates: 
Saturday February 4th 
Saturday March 4th 
Sunday April 9th 
in The East Wing at Green Hill Arts in Moretonhampstead, Dartmoor, TQ13 8LL  
Maximum 12 participants - Price £99 
Module 1 - The Sacred Landscape  Saturday 27 and Sunday 28th May 2017
in The East Wing at Green Hill Arts, Moretonhampstead, TQ13 8LL. 

Everything is alive and everything is connected. During this weekend we will explore both the landscape around us as 'the visible face of spirit' connecting to the spirits of nature for personal and planetary healing and the landscape of non-ordinary reality as it relates to the calling together of a holy temenos, a temple within which to undertake holy or healing work. We will explore the landscape of ourselves as we relate to the interwoven web of all life, undertaking illuminating and liberating practices to enliven our connection to all that is. We will work with the raw, beautiful land of Dartmoor with it's ancient settlements and sacred sites, but the work will provide the opportunity to learn practices that will deepen your relationship with the living, breathing land wherever you find yourself. 
Module 2 - Soul Medicine   Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th July 2017
in The East Wing at Green Hill Arts, Moretonhampstead, TQ13 8LL.

During this weekend we will look at 'illness' and healing from a shamanic perspective. We will explore and undertake the potent archaic healing techniques of soul retrieval, power animal retrieval and the extraction of energetic intrusions, also looking at what is required to make the extraordinary changes that can be wrought using these techniques 'stick'. 

Module 3 - Sovereignty and Service  Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th September 2017 in The East Wing at Green Hill Arts, Moretonhampstead, TQ13 8LL.

This weekend will interweave oracular and divinatory ceremonies and practices of differing sorts with a continuation of our exploration of our relationship with the Spirits of the Land, Elementals and Nature Spirits. Part of the work is in finding our sovereignty within the landscape of ourselves and bringing this into balance and right relationship with our notions of service.  The most effective use of power comes about through equal partnership.
This training is available to a maximum of 12 participants. The workshops will build upon each other and be interspersed with tasks and reading for you to do at home.  At the end of the training there will be the opportunity for you to undertake a number of case studies in the role of shamanic healer and to receive feedback on these. When these have been completed I can issue you with a 'certificate' (while the Spirits laugh and laugh in the background) which will allow you to get insurance as a shamanic healer. A ridiculous notion in many ways, but one that allows us to practice in the modern world.  

The fee for the apprenticeship is £1200.  A deposit of £100 will secure you a place on the training. Payment is then either £137.50 each month from May to December (inclusive) or three payments of £366 each, one being due before each of the modules. 
There are 12 places, two of which are concessionary. Please contact me for details or to apply for one of these.

THIS TRAINING IS FULL FOR 2017: However, if you would like to register your interest for 2018 please do contact me. We will start with Ancient Ways in October, November and January 2017 (dates to be confirmed soon) and then continue the work during 2018. 
Drum, rattle, voice, dance, will, breath and imagination will be our tools.  The Spirits our guides, teachers, beloved friends and allies. The land our container and our home. We cannot fail to be anything other than inspired, re-vivified, enlightened and empowered by these.

I prefer to teach drum making one to one as I believe that you get a better drum this way.  I would like you to go home with a drum just as good as the one I would make for you. 
Phone or e-mail to arrange one at a date convenient to you.
