WHY NEXT STEPS COURSES?
After completing the college’s First-Step course, these courses are the next step for those who wish to explore therapeutic shamanism and animism further. The courses focus on exploring the shamanic Lower-World practices in detail, developing a deep connection with Lower-World Guides (including Human, Animal Plant and Stone ones) and finding our own true and authentic Lower-World Soul – the person we are truly meant to be. In doing so, as well as being potentially profoundly healing and life-changing, the courses also help people develop a shamanic practice that is both deeply rooted and grounded.
You can take Next Steps courses in any order.
IN THIS COURSE:
START BUILDING YOUR MEDICINE BUNDLE
Everything around us, every animal, from a lion through to something seemingly as insignificant as a worm, every plant, and every stone (not just gemstones) has a healing gift and things to teach us. All we have to do is ask.
We will learn how to start acquiring this knowledge via journeying, research and shamanic dieting.
WORKING WITH PLANT MEDICINE
Amongst other things Plant teaches us how healthy beings are deeply rooted, and shows us the value of slowing down and being less aggressive and more content with what we have.
They operate at a much slower pace than animals. To really understand Plant medicine then, to get inside them and them, you need to slow right down. To do that, we will look into their kind of consciousness – collective consciousness.
WORKING WITH SPIRIT ANIMALS
Should you decide to practice shamanism, over the course of journeying you will meet many different animals. Some of them may only appear for one journey, and you may never work with them again. Others you will see intermittently. Yet others may become regular companions, and be with you for periods of weeks, months or even years. Indeed, some may become lifelong companions. These are animal helpers, guides and teachers, sometimes referred to as animal totems.
WORKING WITH STONE PEOPLE
The Stone People are the closest thing to Mother Earth herself, they are Mother Earth manifest and made physical. In turn, the Stone People go on to form everything else in the physical universe, including the stars, the planets, the Plant People, the Animal People, and us Humans.
As well as being Human, at another level, your physical body is ‘the Stone People dancing’ – having the experience of being you, a self-propelled, mobile, restless human animal.
.. AND LEARNING WHAT THEY CAN TEACH US ABOUT BEING HUMAN.
