An Introduction to Shamanic Practice

Location: Inner Space, St Benedicts St, Norwich

Please see the Events Timetable for course dates

 

This Course introduces you to the connection of intuition, spirit, land, and the deeper aspect of the self.

It teaches the history, connection and role of the Shaman through time and cultures, and what this role means for us today in modern society, and how we can, our self, become a Shamanic Practitioner to deepen our understanding and connection.

This introductory course focuses on practice and healing for the self, and how Shamanic practice can help us to deepen our own connection to our self and spirit, how we can help to heal our self from within, and connect with the nature and spirit of all things.

A second course: Advanced Shamanic Practice: Healing Others, folows this course and moves the focus from the practice of the self to utilising Shamanic practice in helping to heal others on an energetic and spiritual level. The Advanced course is certified and can be taken for professional integration.

The course structure for An Introduction to Shamanic Practice is as follows:

 

  • The history & theory of Shamanism: what it is, what Shamans are & do, traditional Shamanism vs Contemporary Shamanism, personal practice & in the community.
