THE BASIC SHAMANIC JOURNEYApril 1, at Whole Being Health in SE Portland
Pre-requisite: Nothing technical, just the desire to learn.
9:30 - 1, Basic Journey Technique and Lowerworld Journeys
2 - 5:30, Upperworld Journeys and Crafting Basic Questions
The basic shamanic journey technique allows the journeyer to receive direct revelation from Spirit. A direct connection with spirit is the birth right of every human and the shamanic journey is one of the most ancient and reliable forms of forging this connection. Once connected with Spirit within the journey state of consciousness, the journeyer can find healing, protection, and a continual source of guidance.
In the morning session we will cover the basic technique of journeying to a drum and explore our power animals and the Lowerworld. In the afternoon session we will explore the Upperworld and how to work effectively with your teachers there. We will also review the Basics for Crafting Questions, poor questions being one of the most common journeying errors.
Through the course of the day we will cover the basic technique, crafting questions, and how to avoid many of the typical mistake beginning journeyers make. We will also cover how to weave this new practice into your contemporary life, reviewing the basics of an everyday practice of inspiriting your life and working powerfully with sacred space in your own home.
