Shamanic Studies and Celtic Reiki
Introduction to Shamanic Journeying
Session 1 December 3, 2022
Session 2 January 7, 2023
This two-session workshop provides a solid introduction to shamanism as a spiritual practice. Learning to journey for one’s self is a powerful tool in walking a spiritual path of balance, connectedness, and self-growth. All people possess the ability to journey for themselves- to seek guidance and healing from their spirit allies and to connect with a higher consciousness. Based in core shamanism, this workshop will cover the following topics and journeys: a brief history of shamanism, the three Otherworlds, power animals, spirit guides and teachers, basic divination journeys for self, spiritual protection, fairy guides, nature spirit allies, and shapeshifting. The two sessions will provide you with a solid foundation for personal growth in walking the shamanic path. Session 1 is a prerequisite for session 2. The cost is $175 for the 2 session workshop, and runs from 9 am – 1 pm each day. Email Melanie at email@example.com to register.
"I participated in the Introduction to Shamanic Journeying class with Melanie in January 2017. I learned about the history of shamanic practice and learned to journey to connect with my own personal spirit guides. In this class, I met several of my spirit guides, whom I continue to connect with and ask for healing and divine guidance from on a regular basis. Melanie taught us how and when to merge with our power animal spirit guide. She offered us the opportunity to smudge with sage prior to each class, which for me was a learning experience about how to use smudging as an energy clearing practice, which I use now on a regular basis. She also taught us how to shapeshift and experience being from different perspectives. All of this learning and spiritual growth has been life changing for me. I cannot imagine my life now without the richness of spirituality that shamanic journeying has given me. In addition to the incredibly life changes skills I learned in this class, I respect Melanie as a teacher who is engaging with her students, fun to learn from, and accommodating to her student’s needs. I highly recommend enrolling in a class with Melanie if you ever have the opportunity!" ~T.Z.
Cloak of Feathers: A Course in Spiritual Protection
Date: February 1, 2023; Snow Date February 8, 2023
Join me in the exploration of psychic, energetic, and spiritual protection. This course is for all empaths, mediums, Reiki practitioners, energy workers, sensitives, journeyers, holistic health practitioners such as massage therapists and acupuncturists, and anyone else looking to keep themselves free and clear from unwanted energy.
While working in the light is a key player in psychic protection, intention alone is not enough to prevent discordant energy from affecting us. Regular spiritual hygiene along with the deliberate use of a plethora of tools are essential for those of us working in the spiritual field or exposing ourselves to the energy of others. Learn how to acquire protection tools from your spirit allies, build the essential skill of discernment, shield yourself while remaining open, work safely in non-ordinary reality, avoid “taking on others’ stuff,” keep your body and spaces clear, check yourself for imbalances, and develop a regular routine of spiritual maintenance and hygiene through various clearing techniques. Whether you are looking to develop a safer way of working in your spiritual practice or simply to not take on energy that doesn’t belong to you, this course is for you. Come fill your tool box and go home feeling better protected and more confident. $40. Email Melanie at firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
Sacred Space: Creating a Personal Medicine Wheel
This two day workshop is designed for students of shamanism who are looking to deepen their understanding and practice of sacred space. We will work in the five directions through journey work and meditation. The purpose of this workshop is for students to discover and develop their own connections to each direction, thus creating a personal or inner medicine wheel. This is not a physical construct, but an inner one. Although there are cultural associations with the directions, creating sacred space is grounded in the individual’s relationship with his or her spirit allies. This process is ever-changing as we follow our spiritual path. This class will give students the foundation that is needed to establish safe practices of creating sacred space and honoring the directions. Additional topics that will be covered in this workshop include altars, sacred smoke, candle work, and cultural appropriation. This workshop requires students to have solid journey skills with the prerequisite of an Introduction to Shamanic Journeying class.
