& Animal Whispering
2017-2018 Shamanic Healing Apprenticeship
Wakan Tanka, Great Mystery,
teach me how to trust
my inner knowing,
the senses of my body,
the blessings of my spirit.
Teach me to trust these things
so that I may enter my Sacred Space
and love beyond my fear,
and thus Walk in Balance
with the passing of each glorious Sun.
According to the Native People,
is the space between exhalation and inhalation.
To Walk in Balance is to have
Heaven (spirituality) and Earth (physicality) in Harmony.
In this 10-month Apprenticeship, students will commence by learning the Art of Shamanic Healing on the weekend of Saturday, October 28, 2017 and Sunday, October 29, 2017. The Apprenticeship will complete in July 2018.
The Circle will meet one weekend per month, at Panacea School of Integrative Health & Yoga Studios on Saturdays from 9am-5pm and Sundays from 10am-4pm. Each day will give space for a one-hour lunch in which students will bring their own healthy foods, including snacks to share with others.
Applicants will be strongly encouraged to learn to do a shamanic journey prior to starting the Apprenticeship, however this Art is something that will be continuously learned during the course of the Apprenticeship. I will introduce books for supplementing the teachings as well as other sacred tools you may be called to acquire.
Please be aware that one does not get a “stamp” at the end of this Apprenticeship to call themselves a “shaman” however you will receive a Certificate of Completion. A traditional Apprenticeship is based on real inward evolution and is not about checking off a list of set requirements. We will work together to create the container, circumstances and guidance to undergo this process however the only way for progress to be made is on this individual’s commitment to “become.” As a general rule, an Apprenticeship is a personal process and is not something that is a linear concept. This personal growth process varies from individual to individual based on the level of conditioning. The teachings are much more than just becoming a “shaman” and really entails the process of maturation of human consciousness, transcendence of ignorance, and dedicating oneself to be of service in recognizing our interconnection with all sentient beings through one’s own healing and liberation with deep compassion.
There is an Application process and an interview. The Application Fee is $50 and is non-refundable. I will personally perform a shamanic journey for each applicant to ask my Spirit Helpers whether the applicant is ready to learn these sacred lessons and ceremonies and whether the individual is able to offer their true presence to the Circle.
Please contact Tina D'Amore for more information and an application.
