This is the Basic workshop through The Foundation for Shamanic Studies, a non-profit public 501(c)(3) charitable and educational organization.That was a mouthful. It kinda reminds me of Episcobabble. I guess I'll call it "Shamanababble".
Shamanic Journeying, Power, and Healing
During the Basic experiential workshop, participants are introduced to core shamanism, the universal, near-uni-versal, or common basic methods of the shaman to enter nonordinary reality for problem solving and healing.
Particular emphasis is on the classic shamanic journey, one of the most remarkable visionary methods used by humankind to explore the hidden universe otherwise known mainly through myth and dream.Aren't hallucinogenic drugs part of the classic shamanic journey?
Participants are initiated into shamanic journeying, aided by drumming and other techniques for experiencing the shamanic state of consciousness and for awakening dormant spiritual abilities, including connections with Nature.At least there are none of those unnatural tambourines.
Practice includes comparisons by participants of their discoveries in shamanic journeys as well as being introduced to shamanic divination and healing. They are also provided with methods for journeying to meet and study with their own individual spirit helpers in nonordinary reality, a classic step in shamanic practice.I always wanted to meet someone in nonordinary reality.
Participants learn how the journey is utilized to restore spiritual power and health, and how shamanism can be applied in contemporary daily life to help heal oneself, others, and the Planet.Can you earn a degree in Planetary Medicine?
Please bring:• A rattle or a drum if you have one.• A bandana or other eye covering.• A cushion and/or blanket.• A rough-surfaced GRAPEFRUIT-sized rock.• A pen and notebook to record your journeys.• A bag lunch (optional).I knew I should have kept that GRAPEFRUIT sized rock.
Wear comfortable layered clothing and warm socks. Please do not use perfumes or scented oils (some participants may have allergies).
Completion of this workshop qualifies participants to take more advanced FSS workshops.(and spend more money)
