Join us for an evening of inner exploration.
Commencing with an opening ceremony, you will then learn all aspects of how to create your own sacred space, and why.
When we understand the reasons behind a process rather than blindly following suit, we are empowered and grounded in knowledge which allows a more profound link and connection to the chosen custom, enabling you to make it your own and share this knowledge with others.
You will then be guided through the techniques of the Shamanic Journey, one of the most remarkable visionary methods used by humankind to explore the hidden universe otherwise known mainly through myths and dreams.
In following you will be guided through a beautiful Cacao Ceremony where we will not only consume this powerful healer but also learn of its origins and healing properties
As you are immersed in your own creativity and innate wisdom where you will find connections to animal spirits and teachers perhaps previously unknown.
The power of Shamanic drumming and Tibetan full moon singing bowls will enhance your experience by encouraging the brain to produce relaxation-inducing alpha waves.
You will leave this workshop uplifted and carrying a kete of new tools and understanding to translate directly into your own personal spiritual practices.
About the Shamanic Practice
The Shamanic Journey is one of the most remarkable visionary methods used by humankind to explore the hidden universe otherwise known mainly through myths and dreams.
During this experiential intro workshop, you will be introduced to core shamanism and common methods of shamans to enter nonordinary reality for problem solving and healing.
You will connect with your inner senses and be initiated into shamanic journeying, aided by the sound of a drum and other techniques for experiencing shamanic states of consciousness and for awakening one's soul and dormant spiritual power.
Travel outside of time and space into another reality and make contact with compassionate helping spirits, such as teachers and power animals, for personal wisdom and to gain knowledge to help create a better world.
There will be time to communicate your own stories, discoveries, and insights for those who wish to share. Sharing is a beautiful way to learn from others' experiences.
Steve has been passionate about Indigenous spirituality since the early ’80s. After discovering the medicine man ‘Rolling Thunder’ by Doug Boyd he went down the Shamanic rabbit hole. Most of the experiential teachings he received back then were of Native American origin through Cherokee Denise Linn and later Lakota Wallace Black Elk.
In the early 90’s Steve met with shaman Terri Batten who he trained with for many years. Terri had trained with Sandra Ingerman who is the educational director of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies.
For over 20 years Steve has held circles for shamanic journeys guiding people to embrace their own power and answers to the questions that arise on their journey of self-actualization.
This exploration of the non-ordinary realities has transformed the lives of many and is a deep passion for Steve and his connection to spirit. For the last 3 years, he has further immersed himself into working with transforming mindsets and altering states through breath.
Katie has been using Cacao as medicine regularly for years, having sat in ceremonies with this ancient healer many times she has experienced and understands the power of transformation and heart-opening potential contained within this plant.
Cacao has been one of the key ingredients contributing toward Katie’s inner evolution, which she has been dedicated to for the past few years, and is passionate about utilising what many might term “food” as medicine and healing ourselves through simple yet powerful practices.
