    Discover Shamanism: an Introduction day – This enlightening and experiential workshop covers the basics of shamanic practice. It is usually an eye-opening experience that opens up a rich and amazing world of possibilities. Participants will be shown simple yet profound techniques to enter shamanic reality to reconnect to their own spirituality. No prior experience is necessary, and the workshop is taught in a grounded way and rooted in personal experience.

    The day includes…

    • the history of shamanism
    • the key concepts of the shamanic universe
    • how to enter a shamanic ‘journey’

    • finding your ‘power animal’
    • the basics of how to journey for others and do a healing

    Throughout its long and varied history, shamanism has taken many forms, appropriate to the culture it has found itself in. Therapeutic Shamanism combines the principles of shamanic work with those of modern counselling and psychotherapy. It is highly relevant to modern life and its dis-eases. It provides an easily-learnt tool kit of techniques and methods that are profoundly useful for personal healing, help with life issues, raising self-awareness, personal and spiritual development, and much more.

    To book: Cost: £45 (non-refundable, or transferable except in the event of the course being cancelled). Book direct with Rhian:;  07740 460 937
