< back to courses

This experiential workshop runs over two days and introduces participants to some foundational Shamanic practices and tools that they can begin using for personal enrichment in their everyday lives. 

The workshop includes an honoring of the Seven Directions (with an emphasis on Celtic Tradition) and an experiential exercise in the use of sacred plants for smudging, blessing, ceremony and space clearing.  The use of sacred instruments and sacred song for meditation and deepening spiritual connection will be explained and demonstrated. Participants will experience several Shamanic drum journeys to connect with guides, power animals and plant spirits. They will also be taught a sacred chant in a dedicated group circle. 

An introduction to engaging with the sentient consciousness of plants will be presented. The daydream, nightdream and Shamanic dream will be described and explored. An overview of plant communication techniques will be given with an emphasis on Heart Perception, Entrainment and Felt Sensation. Participants will be taught how to use the foundational Shamanic practices they have been taught during the workshop to deepen their relationship with the plant world.

Participants will also experience a beautiful “Music of the Plants” meditation to assist with deepening their appreciation of the energetic and electromagnetic impulses from the plant world.
