This class introduces the topic of Shamanism, giving a brief overview of its history as a traditional practice and explaining the subsequent emergence of contemporary shamanism.
We will learn the model of the three shamanic worlds – the Upper, Middle and Lower worlds and experience Lower world journeys to connect with our Power Animals.
Discovering and making a solid relationship with your Power Animal is an essential first step in shamanic practices, as this ally will guide and protect you in all of your shamanic journeys. Discovering your Power Animal can be a profound experience of realising a deeper part of yourself as well as understanding your own tendencies, talents and behaviours.
After we explore the core techniques for shamanic journeying, I will guide you into your Power Animal journeys with traditional drumming and we will share feedback and experiences with the group.
This introductory class is a prerequisite for attending the Shamanic Journey 8 week workshop series which provides a comprehensive foundation in shamanic practices.
The next introductory classes are on Saturday 1st and 8th of September 2018 from 7pm – 10pm at Dragonfly Zen, 142 Grafton St, Cairns, through the glass door next to Cyrus Persian Carpets and up the stairs.
Cost is $50.
Bring a journal and a pen, and you may also wish to bring a scarf or bandana to cover your eyes. You are welcome to stay on for tea and a chat after the class.
