SHAMANIC TRAINING, VISION QUEST, WORKSHOPS and RETREATS

 

SHAMANIC TRAINING

 


Would you like to learn about shamanism, you, and much more? Here is an opportunity, cheap and good! You can choose from all workshops and retreats, (although some I recomend).

You may also register for individual instruction for the workshops you want and take them in the time you need: if you commit to the entire training is at least 10 one day's workshop, partecipation to ceremonies, a sweat lodge and 24 hours vision quest annually included.

Most two days workshops are shortened to one day this year as experiment: and if you wish education on your own, let us talk about it.

As a "student" you get homework, and commit yourself to keep contact for results and possible challenges.

Your training first part can be called "complete" (part one) when you have been through at least 10 workshops, four one day's retreats (or ten one day's), at least one sweat lodge, several ceremonies, and at least one vision quest: this is a good basis.

So begins the second part of your journey , and your alone part too: I will always be available, until you choose to learn more, or go your own way. If you come back for more, we will build the next year together, according to your main interest points.

Some classes may, in special cases, done on line via mail or connecting by phone.

***

The purpose of the training is to learn to "rediscover" yourself (among others your strength, your responsibility, and your Mission), your connection to the Earth and all our Relations, and to strengthen your own spiritual and human path. The bigger and even more important purposes are a better Life, and a better World.

All workshops are designed for individual and spiritual holistic development, they are therapeutic, but not therapy.

Please see "One days workshops and retreats" below.


INDIVIDUALLY DESIGNED TRAINING  and

HARDCORE TRAINING

 

You can also, after a meeting with me, start learning with me without a fixed structure.

Do you want personal and spiritual development? I can help a lot. Individual instruction is a combination of different techniques /conversations /exercises /adventures: I guide you and we follow your motivation, your wants and needs.

Are you three persons I can eventually come and teach by you.

HARDCORE TRAINING is teachings by "doing": words are minimized to most important: be ready for challenges!



as a NEW thing this year you can come to following:TRIBAL LIFE, UNPLUGGED, NATURE and ME , LEARNING from THE LAND.

Please see below for description



VISION QUEST:

 

The Vision Quest proces can be devided in three parts: preparation/Vision Quest/reintegration (to your world and everydays life). You can choose from 24 hours Quest.

The Quest is a transformation process (or rite of passage) held outdoor (in winter you can be indoor): it comes from our brothers and sisters Red Indians. You sit in a defined circle, fasting, only with water to drink, and with no distraction, with different purposes. 

A purpose could be for example to be with yourself and Nature, to reflect over and find alternatives/solutions about a particular side of your life or a spacific challenge (modern oriented), or to find and understand your mission on Earth,  "crying for a Vision" (Indian traditional).

You will go through a cleansing and transformative process however, and regardless of how long time you choose to do it for.

It is better to have a minimum knowledge to shamanistic practice but, if you do not have it, I can help you by a simple introduction, together with your preparation in advance, starting best two months in advance ( to be agreed). 

It is a process and a gift for Life! 

It can be arranged any time you need, providing we agree (and being sensible about danish weather:). Are you three people interested, I can come by you.


 SHORTER WORKSHOPS


SWEATLODGE: Symbolic we go into Mother Earth's dark womb (hut) and we symbolically "die" to be reborn. Dedicated to common good, with one's own individual prayers.

SHAMANIC  WALKS, CITY WALKS, NIGHT WALKS: come back to Nature, its magic and its beauty, its drama, come back to you, your and Nature wisdom. Ajourney with experiences, adventures, awareness, mindfulness, sense's training, basic shamanic "techniques", and guided "exercises" just for you, given from Nature and my Spirit guides.

Intention: that you reconnect to yourself and to Nature, therefore, Healing. Knowledge of shamanism is good, but not necessary. Location: in different forests, or in the city. Duration: 3/ 5 hours. Equipment: good clothes (evt for rain also) good shoes, water, food, something to sit on and evt. for notes, rattle. See calender for dates.


VISIT TO POWER PLACES: in a basic cerimonial frame, we will move for a short pilgrimage, and visit important power places that I know well, and where I have been working before. You will be introduced to my way of contacting a power place,and guided so you can get the contact yourself, discover and evt. receive direct messages, and inspiration.
You will use sometime on your own in order to "feel" the place and your connection with the power that is precisely there. You have to have a minimum understanding and practice of shamanism, or at least be ready, respect and follow the teachings and the places.

Intention: you will learn to know your land and your land's power, and connect with your own ""ancient roots" and ancestors's kultplaces. Location, duration, and equipment as above.


NIGHT WALKS: we will open ourselves to discover and integrate with the power of the Night. We will experience a different world, other sounds  colours, other beings.We will move through quiet and dynamic moments, awareness, "feeling and walking techniques", (and more), you will be guided to contact and "melt" with the Night. There will be time on your own, and individual guidance (especially if you are afraid of the dark). No need for shamanic knowledge necessary.

Intention: to open a new door to awareness and to our senses. Become friend with the Night, become better friend with yourself. Location, duration, and equipment as above, plus flashlight evt.


CITY NIGHT WALKS: most of us live there in the city, we have some favourite corners, but maybe forgotten or never have experienced power or special places. I will guide you through some of my favourite spots,both peaceful, nourishing and power giving places.  A whole different experience of the city!

Intention: to guide you to discover your own city, better relate to it, find good spots for you to experience and be. Location, duration, and equipment as above.


MINDFULNESS AND MAGIC in Nature: about adventure, about finding back to your place in Magic, and Nature. Very different from shaman walk,this workshop is based on training of our senses, mindfulness, and now. It changes and develops from time to time, according to who shows up, and what you need. Going back to Nature is extremely important right now: we get constantly bombarded from media and sounds. Going back to Nature means going back to you, without decorations, unplugged!

Learn to "be there", to inhale freely, to " not think". You will be guided by the best instruments I know, and individually, if you care having a chat before the workshop, so I can get "special things" ready for you: are you comfortable with shamanism, there will be guidance for you too. There will be room for short sharing circles, awareness, meditation and contemplation, contact with Nature beings, and several techniques you can use in everyday's life, also in the city.

Intention: come into a "free space", room to be, room to breathe! Discover a new way to be with yourself, others, and Nature!  Location, duration, and equipment as above.


ONE DAY'S WORKSHOPS (USUALLY 13.00 to 20)

Outdoor and indoor work, individually and in group. Safe and simple framework for all shamanic practices. Important! All basics in  concentrated version. Short interview before the workshop. Intention: basics are given so you can start the first steps into your own practice, "safe and protected".

Intention: you now move further and deeper into the part of shamanism that is concerned with the journey. The intention is to create and deepen your particular contact to the Other reality, its Beings, its power and wisdom, and wisdom, and learn more about it.


LEARNING FROM THE LAND (2 parts, 2 days): learn how to connect to the different sources of knowledge our Planet offers. One at the time, we will search into the "larger" features and elements in the land, and the Ancestors realm. Earth connection is most important (especially in this period) in the society and stress we are living in: we may not have enough contact to our roots, our land, or our Ancestors. Intention: through the workshops you will rediscover and connect to an unique form for Power, get to know new "friends", and hopefully come closer to your wholeness. Short interview required, shamanic "basics" needed.


BECOMING FRIENDS WITH MOTHER EARTH: learn to restore contact between yourself and Nature, Forces and Creatures (all our Realations). Learn to listen, communicate and understand.

We will also work on body, psyche, mental and the spiritual plan through self-awareness, active and passive meditation, journey with the drum, visualization, movement and sound, and more.

Intention: selfHealing and self-development, better expression and communication, deeper understanding of human nature, individual and group work, as much as possible outdoor. A fantastic instrument!

Harmony, some forms for concentration, some directly given from my Spirit guides, breathing, relaxation, small movements, small sounds, and listen to especially choosen sounds. Words will be kept to minimum, and there will be plenty time for....nothingness, looking at the Fire, or....
