The Basic Shamanic Journey


Sept 13, 9:30-5:30, at Whole Being Health in SE Portland
Pre-requisite: Nothing technical, just the desire to learn.

9:30 - 1, Basic Journey Technique and Lowerworld Journeys
2 - 5:30, Upperworld Journeys and Crafting Basic Questions

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 one of the most common journeying errors.

Through the course of the day we will cover the basic technique, crafting questions, and 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, reviewing the basics of an everyday practice of inspiriting your life and working powerfully with sacred space in your own home.

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.

Please register now. Space is limited to 12. 

Cost: $85

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). Bring water and all beverages must be in closed containers.

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 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.
