Cambridge UK healing skills development course for healer training

  • First, a skilful creative state of mind is developed:
    by means of attunement exercises & sharing or writing-down current quests, personal issues, problems, goals, illness, directions or dreams.

  • Artistic creativity and craftwork skill is facilitated by a guided meditation or drumming a Shamanic Journey in order to access unconscious inner resources to guide the craftwork or art therapy.

  • A personal lone journey is then made into nature to connect intuitively to the materials to be used for your magical tool OR healing symbol.
    We call this a "Medicine Walk", during which certain materials and directions of walking will attract us. We as our spirit guide to guide us, or we seek out a tree or other plant that will speak to us. If we need to take any material from a living plant, we first ask it for permission.

    A Medicine Shield is traditionally made out of natural material, such as animal hide, stretched over a wooden hoop with central decoration and other items hung around the edges. Feathers, fringes, beads, bones and sometimes other dangling objects are attached. Medicine shields typically have personal emblems, symbols or power animals painted on them. They are not used for fighting defense, but for inspiration, family/tribal honour and spirit-connection. The colours used may also symbolise particular energies, qualities or have colour-healing properties.
