Adulthood - a shamanic initiation: how to find your authentic soul.
Shamans say we need to learn to live with Death on our shoulder.
Shamans believe that we are a ‘composite’ being, made of different bits. Simply put, we can think of these as being: Spirit, Authentic Soul, Ego and Body. On death, different things happen to these different aspects of ourselves; each has it’s own journey to make. We will look at how we may prepare for this (inevitable) event in our own life.
We will also touch on how to help those who have died, but where the journey of death has become stuck. Known as psychopomping, this process of helping the dead to ‘move on’ is an important part of shamanic work.
In addition, we will look at death in a much wider sense than just the death of the physical body. We will explore death as endings: of periods in our life; relationships that need to be released; of old identities; of habits and patterns; of any thing that no longer serves us and that is holding us back. We will look at the process of letting go and moving on (and explore our resistance to doing this). In doing this we will journey to meet Death itself, as an archetypal energy, and build a relationship with it. In doing so, we will learn how Death, far from being something to fear, can become our greatest ally, and potentially the source of great shamanic power.
