The next Shadow of the Shaman Space Holding Course will begin in March 2022.
This course will be a nine week, nine module journey over two years to teach you to be able to create and hold space for groups in a safe way. The path may not be an easy one - it is in walking this path ourselves that we become able to show others the way. It will take courage, commitment, self-honesty, personal responsibility, compassion and openness. When we become a channel for energetic and spiritual healing, our own channels get cleared in the process. It is inevitable that this course will bring about personal healing in the process of learning to heal others.
You will be learning a collection of skills which include Energy Healing, Shamanic Healing, Chinese medicinal diagnostics, Coaching and Space Holding skills to create a formidable healing toolbox.
The course consists of nine modules. Each module contains several elements woven into each other and progressing throughout the two years. The main elements are:
1: Infusion and Extraction energy work - Foundational techniques for energetic contact and channelling energy and removing unwanted energies.
2: Sound Healing - Using your own voice and sound healing tools to assist the healing process.
3: Chinese energy medicine and healing with the 5 elements - Dowsing, diagnostics and channelling the elements to assist with the healing process. Moving stagnation, and bringing the systems into balance.
4: Intention alignment - re-aligning ourselves and others with the divine plan on the haric field.
5: Auric Surgery - Completing the exploration of the seven layers of the auric field to include the blueprint levels
6: Relationship chords - healing our relationship connections to other people, other beings and events
7: Soul retrieval and regression - Using regression and/or the Spirits to bring the soul back into integrity and wholeness.
8: Compassionate depossession and curse unravelling - understanding non-voluntary spirit attachments, and helping suffering beings back to the light. Clearing ancestral patterns, de-activating ancestral and current contracts to bring back sovereignty and empowerment
9: Shamanic initiation - an intense shamanic recapitulation of our lives. In this module we relive our old story and re-write our new one. This ancient technique is a week-long ceremony of initiation into our new lives.
Each module will build upon the skills of the previous. In this part you will learn more about:
Space Holding Syllabus
This course is designed to be able to empower you to create and hold shamanic ceremonial spaces for yourself and others. We will be looking at various aspects of space holding throughout the course and give everyone the chance to create their own sacred space to practice. Each module will include an optional reading list to study a particular ceremony. For those who take on holding the ceremony, this reading list will be compulsory and I’ll be asking everyone to do this once throughout the course. Some of these might include:
We will also be studying the structure and elements of holding space, including:
This part of the course sits in the background and allows a set of conditions in which we can observe our unconscious patterns in a detached way and work on them.
This part of the course is aimed at transforming our wounds from a potential hindrance (or danger!) to our work and our client relationships.
Our shadow is that part of us which we hide, repress or deny and which consciously/unconsciously drives our choices and behaviours. We will be working with our shadows for several reasons – it increases compassion, creates connection and helps us to work without judgement with our clients’ vulnerabilities without getting triggered. It helps to bring cohesion and connection to the group and prevents ego and projection/transference from detracting from the healing process. This can be very challenging work but also potentially the most transformative work we can do. It works beautifully alongside the healing work.
We will be looking at different aspects of the shadow and skills surrounding it including:
Module 9 - the initiation
Module 9 will take place over a week, and differs in quality to the other modules. This week-long ritual allows us to fully integrate all that we have discovered through the course, creating a clear punctuation between the old life based upon the story of the events of our lives, and the new incarnation we have chosen to inhabit.
Dates for the first four modules are:
Module 1: March 7-13 (arriving on the evening of the 6th)
Module 2: June 6-12 (arriving on the evening of the 5th)
Module 3: Sept 5-11 (arriving on the evening of the 4th)
Module 4: November 21-27 (arriving on the evening of the 20th)
The exchange for each module is £888 which includes all tuition, accommodation and food. It does not include flights or travel.
An initial deposit of £333 books your place. Each module is charged separately with the first payment (of £333) 6 weeks in advance and the balance (£555) due one week before.
Alternate payment plans might be available. Let me know if you’d like to set something different up to suit you.
Due to the nature of the intensity of this work, it is not suitable for everyone. For this reason we will need to speak to each participant individually beforehand to check that you know what to expect and to make sure it is the right course for you.
It helps a lot if we have worked with you in some way before, or if you know someone well who has worked with me before.
We are happy to speak by phone about the details of this course. If you would like to express interest, or apply please follow the link at the bottom of the page to fill out some basic information and I will get in touch to arrange a time to speak:
