The Path

Step1: Shamanic Journeying to Meet Your Spirit Teacher ~ One day
Shaman journeying allows us to access information and energies that can awaken and restore us to wholeness. It requires a connection to and relationship with compassionate helping spirits.

During this course:

  • You will meet your Spirit Teacher who will guide you to deeper wisdom and knowledge.
  • You will learn rituals to set up the environment for journeying and learn what Shamanism is.

You will leave with:

  • an experience of ways to journey and access an avenue for self help.
  • a background on ‘what is Shamanism.’
  • the ability to journey to and meet your helping compassionate spirit teacher.
  • the ability to self-heal
  • a way to receive support, wisdom, insight and self-healing and experience of other realms of reality

Step 2: Deepening and Expanding Your Shamanic Journeying Experience

Step 3:  Seidr Journeying: Deepening and Expanding Your Journeying Experience
Saturday and Sunday     

Prerequisite: Experience in journeying to both your power animal and spiritual teacher

We will learn Seidr Journeying to self heal and to bring wisdom. Betsy Bergstrom describes Seidr as:

Seidr is a shamanic and spiritual practice that has it's origins in antiquity. It was practiced by Norse and Germanic peoples as well as the indigenous Saami people. What cultural or anthropological knowledge we have of Seidr comes from mention of it in some of the Icelandic Sagas dating back a thousand years. Seidr was practiced for many generations in Scandinavia, Britain and Europe amongst the Norse and Germanic people prior to the Icelandic writings. Vikings likely brought Seidr to Britain and surely British woman taken back to Scandinavia and Iceland by the Vikings embraced the Seidr wise woman tradition. Seidr incorporates shamanic journeying, with the use of song and staff to empower it.

Step 4: Shamanic Divination and Healing for Others:
