There are two purposes for taking this course, both equally valid.
1) This course can be used by the shamanic journeyer to deepen their own journeys. Many attendees of this course have been pleasantly delighted at how deeply and profoundly they are able to journey and how easily they can develop trusted relationships with their Spirit Helpers.
2) This course can be the gateway for the therapist/ coach/ counselor/ shamanic practitioner who wishes to bring the benefits of shamanic journeying to their clients. Teaching another person to journey is one of the high points of my practice. I love empowering folks to access their own advice, wisdom, and healing by developing deep relationships with their Spirit helpers. Clients are taught to journey to the lower and upper worlds to develop trusted relationships with their Spirt Helpers. They learn to craft questions and how to interpret the answers. They develop their skills at personal problem solving and guidance utilizing the Spirits as their shamanic counselors. You, the practitioner, become a teacher of method. The Spirits become the real shamanic counselors in non-ordinary reality. Your client learns to become his or her own shaman. The object is to restore spiritual power and authority to the client.
These methods are experiential in contrast to the verbal or analytical approaches of traditional Western methods of counseling and are based on the journey technique of classical shamanism. In Expanding the Shamanic Journey for Personal & Professional Use you will experience both roles as practitioner and client. You will be paired with a partner with whom you will exchange the roles of practitioner and journeyer
