Would you like to awaken your inner knowing in remembering your true essence and ancient wisdom that is at the root of every culture? Through interlacing her knowledge and multitude of experiences as a Psychotherapist, Shamanic Healer, and Reiki Master, Patricia Jones offers this Level 1 Shamanic Workshop with an abundance of compassion, insight and sensitivity, all while using her collective gifts in providing a beautifully meaningful and spiritually rich experience. Come to the Himalayan Institute Retreat Center located in the Pocono Mountains during the beauty of autumn time to relax and be rejuvenated while experiencing the life altering wonder of the shamanic way.
For those new to the world of shamanism, with a desire to remember our ancient wisdom ways, this weekend workshop will focus on the basic tenets of core shamanism available to all of us. Included will be teachings and practice on how to enter into alternate states of consciousness at will. We will also use the classic shamanic method of journeying to explore the otherworldly realms and dimensions where you will meet, retrieve, and begin to work with your power animal to gain help, support, and guidance in your life. You will learn beginning shamanic methods to gain insight about your own life and how to provide guidance to others. Ways to integrate shamanism into your daily life to foster peace, healing, and spiritual growth will be experienced and mentored. The opportunity to experience the deep beneficial effects of a drum healing during a fire ceremony will be offered, and time in nature for honoring and receiving her gifts will be sprinkled throughout this weekend workshop.
Please bring; a rattle of any kind, a drum (the hand-held type with a beater works well however any variety will do), and eye covering such as a bandanna or scarf. Dress in layers as parts of this workshop will be held outdoors.
