Shamanism is a form of spirituality, based on the idea of animism. Animism is the perception that all aspects of the universe are alive with spirit, forming part of an invisible whole consisting of seen and unseen dimensions. Anthropologists and scientists, through western study and research, have finally understood what Shamans have instinctively known regarding unseen dimensions.
In this Introduction to Shamanism, we will use the Medicine Wheel and the four directions as our guide. The directions each have an associated element: Fire in the East; Earth in the South; Water in the West, and Air in the North. These elements in the Medicine Wheel each have wisdom and healing to teach.
The workshop will include travelling in a sacred space and time, bridging the world of spirit and our physical world, in a grounded and ceremonial way.
