This workshop is co-facilitated by the Guardian Spirits at Earthrise. 

Have you ever found it challenging to integrate your spiritual experiences into your daily life? Do you notice conflicts between the physical, emotional, spiritual, and rational parts of yourself? Would you like help bringing forth more of your authentic self in the world and in relationships? Western culture does not encourage or promote a healthy integration of our complete selves, but it is possible. Come learn to enjoy your life fully and enhance your relationship with both the spiritual and physical worlds.

Psychological Shamanism focuses on maintaining healthy relationships in the physical world while honoring and accessing the spiritual /energetic world. It can feel like an incredible balancing act to integrate all of our complex selves, yet our bodies have some crucial wisdom to help our spirits expand. We will explore the five major areas of our lives (spiritual, emotional, physical, mental and relationships) with a focus on how to balance them into a compassionate, healthy whole.

I will be sharing techniques and practical tools that I have learned in over thirty years of apprenticing with Native American teachers and healers, who use their relationship with the spirit world for both wisdom and companionship. I will also be drawing from my background in neuroscience and my expertise as a licensed psychotherapist to help us expand beyond the blocks and fears that prevent us from fully embracing the abundant world we live in. We will also use principles of Aikido, a nonviolent Japanese martial art, to access patterns within our body that are crucial for understanding how we perceive and affect the physical world.

 Gathering together in a small group creates a community for support - from the human, spirit and natural worlds. Following our own path encourages others to follow their unique path into the love, mysteries and abundance of both the physical and non-physical worlds. Within this safe environment will be time for sharing, questions, and a chance to normalize our natural capacity to connect beyond the accepted limits of the material world.

This workshop includes an introduction to Psychological Shamanism which is the branch of shamanism best suited for European and Western culture. From Descartes to Freud, from Socrates to Einstein, Western civilizations have focused on the mind as a tool to explore the world. Like all shamanic tools the mind needs to be treated with respect and care. It has the ability both to  cause devastating destruction and to create profound innovations and enlightenment. This workshop will help you use your mind as a shamanistic tool for healing and enlightenment within a safe, respectful environment. 

This workshop is dedicated to my friend and colleague Deb O’Connor, MFT who is now in the spirit realm and will be helping to guide this workshop. Much of the material for this workshop and for Psychological Shamanism comes from friends and teachers who have left the physical realm and have shared their experiences being fully in the spirit world. They have a unique wisdom to share, having been a spirit embodied for a lifetime in this world and now being fully in the spirit realm.

There will be a drum meditation at the end of the workshop where you will be invited to connect and communicate with spirits and nature.

This workshop is also open to spirits and natural energies who wish to create healthy relationships with humans.
