On this course we will be using traditional shamanic techniques from around the world to explore the exciting and ecstatic realms beyond ordinary reality i.e.

Drumming and rattling
Trance dancing
Shamanic breathwork
Ritual and ceremony

The course consists of four weekend residential workshops over the period of one year in a beautiful rural setting in County Meath close to the sacred sites of Newgrange, Tara and Loughcrew. We will be working together in the circle, creating a safe and sacred space to enable us to form a healing community.

Death and Rebirth
May 8th-10th

This course will teach participants to work with death and dying from a positive shamanic perspective. Death and dying are often taboo subjects in our society whereas shamanic people embrace the positive healing benefits of making death your ally and teacher. Facing death as a part of life leads to a rebirth of a new more whole self. On this workshop participants will learn to work with death and dying from a personal and professional viewpoint using traditional means to become familiar with where we go after death, completing unfinished business, helping souls cross over the threshold between life and death, and acting as a guide for the soul of the dying to the other world.

Shamanic Healing
July 24th - 26th

From a Shamanic perspective illness and disease come from three main causes i.e. loss of power, intrusions, and soul loss. On this course participants will be taught how to restore power to their clients who are suffering from the symptoms of power loss. They will also learn how to see and sense shamanically, and remove intrusions using shamanic extraction techniques.

The course will also include:

Journey to source latent healing power
Working with plant medicine
Creating a healing ritual
Diagnostic and tunnel healing journey
Contacting a healing teacher
Celtic fire ritual
Trance dancing.

Soul Retrieval
August 28th-30th

Soul loss can occur when a person undergoes a traumatic event in their lives. Such as loss of loved one, accident or injury, separation or loss of a relationship, abuse, or any event that the person is shocked or hurt by. At the time of the trauma part of the person¹s soul sometimes leaves their body as a survival strategy in order not to be totally devastated by the shock of the negative experience. Sometimes the soul part is reluctant to return to the person because it fears that it is not safe to do so. Some of the symptoms of soul loss are feeling spaced out, numb, depressed, deadened, addictions, chronic sickness. Soul loss prevents us from feeling connected to ourselves, others and the earth.

Soul retrieval is an important part of Shamanic healing work. Participants will be taught how to work with those who have suffered from soul loss, learning the techniques for tracking and retrieving lost souls and returning them to their rightful place.

The course will also include:

Journey to learn soul tracking skills
How to avoid taking others soul parts
How to return soul parts
Journey to retrieve a soul part for partner
Journey to have your own soul part returned
Healing circle
Trance dancing.
