Shamans say that everything is alive, and so are your words. The words you speak have power. Some words are best held within you and left unspoken. Others derive their strength from having merged with Spirit through your speaking them. In this class we examine the power of words and ways to use them that are empowering, rather than disempowering.

The Shamanic Journey is a fundamental shamanic practice. It is key means by which the practitioner engages with the non-ordinary reality of the spirit world. This class is in two parts, one week apart, with exercises that you can do in between. The first module introduces the journey process, including a discussion of the three worlds (lower, middle, and upper). The process is clearly outlined, with a brief journey experience, questions, and answers. You will receive "homework" so that you can practice on your own during the following week. In the second module, you are invited to share your journeys and ask questions that come from your experiences. The discussion will then expand to deeper understanding of journey guides and practices.

Animal guides have been working with humans for thousands of years. They form a bridge between our world of ordinary awareness and the non-ordinary world of Spirit. By learning how to learn from them, you form an important bond that can assist you to move more freely and fluidly between the worlds.
