This foundation-building course focuses on the tools and skills that are the base of any spiritual practice including, but not limited to shamanic study. This year is for your own experience, building stability and maintaining healthy borders. It is also a chance to clarify your way and to learn how to build and maintain lifelong spiritual connections and practices. Our intention is to give you the best possible foundation for your future personal and spiritual growth.
During the year we will learn and practice skills that are required to undertake a spiritual training or path. These skills are becoming less and less common in our fast-paced, information and technology-centered lives. You will learn practices for becoming quiet, for grounding, reflection, discernment and integration. You will also learn about using good judgment, ethical practice and staying safe in the work.
The next starting date is September 2018 for both the Yearlong in Experiential Shamanism and the Foundation Year Training
