First-Steps in Therapeutic Shamanism: An Online Course
This low-cost and eye-opening course introduces people to rich and amazing world of Therapeutic Shamanism. The course is experiential, and covers the basics of shamanic practice. No prior experience is necessary.
You will learn:
The course consists of a mixture of videos, live sessions, theory talks, question-and-answer sessions, group discussion, experiential exercises, and practice. This is delivered in 8 online sessions. Each session is between 1 to 1½ hours long, making the course a total of between 8 to 12 hours in length. The exact content of each session will vary to some extent, as tutors will tailor it to the needs and wishes of the participants. However, the basic structure is as follows:
Between sessions, participants will have the option of joining private peer-led online groups, to offer each other encouragement and support, ask questions, and share ideas and experiences. Participants also can submit questions to the course tutor(s), to be answered at the next online session.
Participants will of course have to have an internet-enabled device (computer, tablet or smartphone) and wi-fi access to take part. The platform we use is Zoom meetings – help will be available for getting set up if needed.
Shamanic work can be of great benefit with mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, and self-esteem issues. However, shamanic work does require a reasonable degree of mental robustness and groundedness, and emotional resilience. As such, like meditation and other similar practices, it can be contra-indicated in mental health issues such as psychosis, mania, severe depression, or disassociative disorders. So, if you have any mental health issues (current or historical) which you feel may impact on your ability to journey safely, then please do discuss this with the relevant course tutor prior to booking on the course. Any discussion will, of course, be treated confidentially.
