Learn This Ancient Art of the Shaman!

Shamanic Journeying is a spontaneous "awake dreaming" process in which the conscious mind can connect with, and interact with, the unconscious "spirit world" mind. It is a tried and tested way to bring our conscious and unconscious into alignment [wholeness and healing) in order to live a more integrated, harmonious, effective and fulfilling life, driven less by the clinging, grasping, insatiable neediness of our insecure ego and more by deep spiritual guidance, soul-wisdom and soul-nourishment.

The shamanic lifestyle is an ancient natural and holistic approach to life/ourself/the world, in which our conscious and unconscious minds, ego and soul, emotional needs & social connections, spiritual connections, responsibilities and contributions are brought into integrated alignment.

This is a very personal journey, achieved by regular spiritual practises such as the traditional shaman's journey to a rhythmic drumbeat by which we can consult our spirit guides and connect with any "power animal" or "totem" archetypal quality that we could usefully cultivate and express in our daily life right now.

Five Elements Purification Breathwork Practice Poster -  The way we breathe reflects the way we live!

The Five Elements Breath Purification Practice

Resourcefulness - Balance - Self-empowerment

The way you are breathing right now reflects the way you are living! To improve the results you are getting in any particular area of your life you need to breathe more effectively and holistically (resourcefully) - drawing on the five elemental patterns: earth, water, fire, air and ether (essence / spirit) which express your full potential in any situation. In this breathwork technique [a modified traditional Sufi exercise] you experience yourself and your relationship to the world around, in 5 fundamental ways. By moving in sequence around these patterns you cultivate mindfulness and this enhanced self-awareness helps you to clear energy blocks, centering and calming your inner child, raising your core energy level and literally bringing you "new inspiration". This practice can also be helpful for overcoming panic, depression, anxiety, addictions such as comfort-eating, alcohol or smoking, also insomnia problems.

The Dance of Life - A Prayer in Movement

Holistic Energy-Cultivation & Spiritual-Connection Practice

Connecting us to the world of spirit and the divine qualities of reverence, trust and oneness, honouring Mother Earth, Father Sky, the Four Directions and our own inner support [self-esteem]. The Dance of Life is an ancient Medicine dance, said to originate from the Eastern Cherokee Medicine people, though exact origin is disputed. Combines breathwork, creative visualization and gentle tension-releasing movements similar to T'ai Chi. Best done at dawn, The Dance of Life is grounding, centering, balancing and a dance of gratitude for life!


A Circle Dance to Release Energy & Uplift Spirit
(Raising Our "Level of Vibration")

We begin our workshop journey by chanting and moving together to a Native American style tribal dance, aided by drum and rattle, to raise our spirits & energy level. Our goals are: Self-empowerment, Inspiration, Motivation, without which we will not get very far! The 3 phases of this symbolic circle ritual remind us of our potential to connect with our 3 levels of identity...

and to experience our life on 3 interwoven levels... The words of this mantric chant...
  We circle around
The boundaries of the Earth
Hayya Hayya Hayya Hayya
Wearing the long wing feathers as I fly

Arjuna Info and Materials - The Breath of Arjuna Holistic Self-empowerment Exercise

The Breath of Arjuna - Holistic Self-empowerment

Arjuna was an heroic archer in Hindu legend. His name means 'bright' or 'shining' and he was such a skilled warrior that he was nicknamed "the undefeatable". He symbolizes the qualities of "clear vision", "focus" [on a target or goal] and potency [effectiveness]. "Breath of Arjuna" is a simple dynamic yoga movement connecting breath, body, mind, spirit and imagination [visualization of results]. It can be done sitting, but is most powerful in the standing position. It comes from "Dru Yoga" [yoga of the heart]. This adapted practice consists of 3 successive phases:

1. Shedding what is not needed at the present time;
2. "Drawing-in" desired qualities, feelings and power for our personal "next step";
3. Radiating the persona [personal qualities] we wish to bring to the world.


Alignment with Self:
(Deepening Self-awareness - Integration of Mind, Body, Heart & Spirit)

The Reflective Breathing technique as a self-awareness tool which integrates mind, body, spirit, perceptions, senses and feelings. Self-awareness is essential for healing self or others - it is the starting point for choice (self-empowerment) and personal transformation. There are 4 types of outcome of this exercise:
  • deadness - can't do it!
  • relaxation & self-centring
  • energy blocks encountered
  • contacting of held-in feelings

    Whatever the outcome, we will use a range of exercises to move us forward to...



    Ignite the Spark to Engage Your Personal Soul-Wisdom & Life-Purpose:

    We Use a "Smudging" Ritual to Purify Our Intentions before entering the "Sacred Space" practices which follow

    Many people choose to live their lives "stuck in a rut" - miserable and unfulfilled, unprepared for death. Engaging in The Way (lifestyle) of the Shaman begins with nurturing our desire and passion for fulfillment - for living more fully, achieving more of our potential and having a fuller experience of ourselves and of the integrated earthly/spiritual life for which we have incarnated into this lifetime. For this we will draw on the Native American wisdom of the Medicine Wheel incorporating the 4 compass directions plus "down" [earth], "up" [sky] and "within" - a total of 7 directions of spiritual connection...
