The basic shamanic journey technique allows the journeyer to receive direct revelation from Spirit. A direct connection with spirit is the birth right of every human and the shamanic journey is one of the most ancient and reliable forms of forging this connection. Once connected with Spirit within the journey state of consciousness, the journeyer can find healing, protection, and a continual source of guidance.

First Half: We will cover the basic technique of journeying to a drum and explore our power animals and the Lowerworld. This is an OK place to start and there is no pre-requisite.

Second Half: We will explore the Upperworld and how to work effectively with your teachers there. We will also review the Basics for Crafting Questions (Poor questions being the most common journeying error.) You are welcome to attend only the afternoon and to do so you must know the basic journey technique, Yes, anyone’s basic teaching is accepted.

Full day: Strongly recommended. Learn not only the basic technique, but also how to avoid many of the typical mistake beginning journeyers make. We will also cover how to weave this new practice into your contemporary life, with ease and efficacy.

To bring: A rattle or drum, handkerchief to cover your eyes, journal and pen for notes, blanket or pillow for comfort lying on the floor, wear comfortable clothing, warm socks, and a huaca, (small sacred item for the altar that will return home with you). All beverages—hot and cold— must be in closed containers.

This is a great opportunity to:

  • Learn to communicate directly with your power animal and spirit guides.
  • Learn to communicate directly with your soul parts for health, wholeness, and integration.
  • Brush up on rust or lackluster journey skills. Never hurts to review these practices.
  • Learn about the Upperworld if you have never journeyed there.
  • Begin to learn the art of crafting powerful journey questions.

Take the next step, if you already know how to journey. Come and learn to use your journeys to access self-healing and personal empowerment. We will review the basics of an everyday practice of inspiriting your life and working powerfully with sacred space in your own home.

NOTE: If you have tried to learn to journey before and feel that you “failed” or that “nothing happened”, we suggest the following:

  1. Register for the whole class.
  2. Schedule a healing session with Christina, by contacting Andrea, before the class. Sometimes an energy healing is required to open the way for your natural ability to journey.

Healing the Ancestral Lines Training: Part One—April 22-24
Actual Energy Clearing: Part Two—April 24-26

Two Part Series in Boulder CO. You may register for either or both.
Contact: Julie Perkins or download registration form here


Ancestral Healing resolves the pattern of energy at its source in the past, because issues resolved anywhere along the line short of the source will continue to be handed down to the descendants.  Ancestral Healing resolves the pattern at the root of the issues/problems/symptoms that are affecting the client. Ancestral Healing clears the pattern from the unresolved energies from the source down the line in all the branches all the way to the living. And Ancestral Healing requires follow-up work for client that the practitioner must understand how to support.

The presence of the dead among the living can cause:

  • Physical illness, particularly early onset of old age illnesses.
  • Infertility.
  • Mental illness, unrest, psychological dysfunction, and suicide.
  • Socialization disorders.
  • Persistent patterns that return after repeated successful clearing processes and or soul retrieval.
  • Family patterns of incest, alcoholism, and any systematic abuse of power.
  • Feeling cursed.
  • Hijacking: the insertion of a belief system that drives an individual in a direction in life other than that person’s true soul’s purpose as if the false belief were his/her own.
  • Possession

In this experiential training we will be working with the hardest Ancestral Healing a practitioner can face, his or her own. The restoration and renewal that will come to you after the class are a result of the healing work you do on behalf of yourself to clear the way to fully express your soul’s purpose as well as the cultivation of a strong working relationship you’re your Ancestral Helping Spirits. Your family, and your descendants will also benefit from the healing and the presence of True Ancestors where there were only the unresolved burdens of the dead.

Pre-requisite: strong shamanic journeying skill. Practitioners of any form who also journey as part of their personal skill set are welcome to attend to explore the potential in ancestral healing and how it interfaces with other healing modalities to better refer your patients and cleints. 
 

The principles and practice of Actual Energy Clearing clarify how and why it is necessary to clear the unresolved energies of the ancestors. They are not stuck because they need soul retrievals or depossessions. They are stuck because they are still emotionally attached to the energies that were left unresolved in their lives. 

Actual Energy Clearing: Part Two—April 24-26

There is no pre-requisite for Energy Clearing.
You may register for only Actual Energy Clearing.

We all want our life to reflect our dreams and visions and we wonder why that's not happening yet.

  • Do beliefs and fears you learned long ago continue to limit you today?
  • Are you tired of getting overwhelmed by other people's emotional energy?
  • Do you recognize the same patterns in your life not matter what you try to clear, heal or transform?
  • Are you confused by what energy is yours, what is cording by others, and where healthy boundaries are?

We are all challenged by energy: having too much stuck in the past and not enough here, everyday, in the moment and available to live into our joy and our destiny.  We all repeat old patterns, again and again, in spite of good efforts to change. We all get tired of our "issues" and reacting to life as a child. What does it take to clear these old patterns, stories, and fears at their source, one and for all?

Actual Energy Clearing is a body-based clearing practice that anyone can do. No special skills or altered states necessary.  It works at the interface between the physical body and the energy body where we find our "felt sense" of things. No matter where the wounding comes from-past or present, physical or spiritual, mental or emotional-we hold it in the body forever, until we choose to clear it.

This is an experiential class that is primarily spent practicing Actual Energy Clearing to learn this core technique. Variations on that theme that don't arise naturally in class as examples will be discussed. This process moves beyond insight, understanding, tapping, and wishful thinking into how to actually let energies go, giving us the tool we need to gain the freedom and emotional health needed to live our true dreams without distraction.
