Actual Energy Clearing—Sept 23-25
recommended on Why Shamanism Now for maintaining energy body hygiene

Whole Being Health, Portland, OR — this class fills quickly and space is limited


Everyone gets their "buttons pushed." Everyone repeats old patterns, again and again, inspite of good efforts to change. Everyone gets tired of their same old issues and reacting to life as a child. Everyone wants their life to reflect their dreams and visions and everyone wonders why that's not happening yet.

Come learn how to get out of your own way.
One practice.
Clear any energy you carry in your body (and we carry it all in our bodies...)

This is a body-based clearing practice that 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 process moves beyond insight into how to actually let energies go, giving us the tool we need to gain the freedom and emotional health.

Healing the Ancestral Lines     —a training weekend

Oct 14-16, Whole Being Health, Portland, OR
Please register early as preparation is required.
There are only 5 remaining spaces in this class.


Pre-requisite: Strong journey practice or shamanic practitioner.

In this experienctial training we learn the Last Mask Center Ancestral Healing form. With these practices we resolve 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 of unresolved energies from the original ancestor through the line into all the branches all the way to the living. 

We will be working with the hardest Ancestral Healing a practitioner can face, his or her own. This practice offer restoration and renewal for the dead, the living through the whole family, and to your descendants. As practitioners there is also great benefit from the healing and creation of  True Ancestral Helping Spirits where there were only the unresolved burdens of the dead.


Masks of Illusion and the Authentic Self
2017—The Cycle of Transformation 
Shamanic Teachings for the New World

June 4-9, 2017, El Rancho Robles, Oracle, AZ
Register now. 2017 has only 12 remaining places

We must be skilled if we are to become the people who can write a new story for the new world. We cannot simply repeat the ancients ways as if our culture is still healthy and true. Now can we continue as we are. We must become the men and women we were born to be. We must become the medicine and dance.

Contact Andrea for more information and registration

Pre-requisite: Basic Shamanic Journeying Skills

We must draw forward what remains true and real in the ancient teachings about human life in the natural world and we must innovate effectively in response to the issues of our time.  In Year One we cover the basic shamanic skill set for the Cycle and the transformation skill set. Together we engage in elemental ritual and ceremony to fuel your personal transformation, learn clearing techniques to free your Authentic Self from your Old Story and enter into Last Mask Community for support from your peers as the year unfolds.
