This is a spiritual apprenticeship rooted in stepping into ourselves as healers and mystics as we discover our unique destiny path...
Year one: The call of the Healer Within. Spirit healer and animist.
Something within you has felt the call. Understand why and learn to master it.
This apprenticeship is for those called to the subtle work of the spirit healer and mystic, and those who are called to walk deeper into the unknown mysteries... ~As humans we each have a unique destiny path and reason for being here, but many of us have to follow many different pathways in order to truly unfold into who we are, and why we are here, especially when we are called to work with the unseen realms. This apprenticeship was created to truly be supportive to our rich diversity of ancestral backgrounds and unique destiny pathways. In our time together we will: ~Understand the difference between Shamanic work, Animism, Mediumship, and the call of the Artist and Ceremonialist. ~Explore the politics of this time and age when it comes to where spiritual work and activist intersect, and where we all fit within it, or rather how dont actually all fit within it.. ~Non appropriative approaches are taught so that we can stand in deep integrity to the work of our true selves. ~ Ceremony to remove the mask of illusion and see into the truth of our calling. ~Create a strong foundation for a regular animist practice that will support your work and destiny path, because understanding these differences are actually more important then we think. ~The art of the spirit journey is taught here with a focus on how our ancestors would have done it. ~Learn spirit healing techniques based within the context of Shamanism, Animism, Mediumship, and the Mystical realm. Such as: ~Cosmology and what our personal unique cosmology is. ~Animism and healing work with regards to working with animals, plants and the stone kingdom. ~Learn who your spirit allies are and how to work with them in right relationship. ~Learn how to support others as they seek their own animal allies and journey on behalf of others. ~Learn how to safely see and remove misplaced energies/extraction. ~Understand the "weave" that we all sit within, and how to repair energetic tears within the weave. ~ Soul retrieval-what it is form a contemporary standpoint, what it's purpose is and the form of using it for healing on ourselves and for clients. Work with your allies and ancestral helping guides to understand your own unique way. ~Mythic storytelling and the stories of our ancestors. ~Somatic ways of embodiment both for healing ourselves and understanding its importance with others. ~Trauma responce, the vagus nerve, Titration and the basics of understanding how we can work with trauma on the subtle energy bodies. ~Death walking/Psychopomp. ~Space clearing, ghosts and misplaced energetics. ~ Prayer bundles, ceremonies, mythic storytelling and the artists way. ~Create a drum, rattle and ancestor house. And so much more then one could ever attempt to describe here......
Year Two: The call of the Ancestors.
Our Ancestors are calling us to know who we are, to heal our lines, and to be able to support others to heal theirs too. Now is the time.
~This year is based on the 13 month course I offer called Ancestral Longing and Memory, but has the addition of mastering the work to be able to offer it to others. Some of the things within are: ~Ancestral basics-how to work with our ancestors in a safe way. Not all of our ancestors went where they needed to go and are safe to work with as spirits. How to tell the difference. ~Protection and boundaries within the spirit world. ~Understanding who we are and where we come from, asking our ancestral helping spirits for guidance. ~Spend the year healing our own lineages through ceremony and ritual in a deeply held container. ~ Honouring the dead with ceremony, and learning the ways of our ancestors, our gifts and our curses. ~Building ancestral altars to begin a daily practise. ~The year culminates and moves us from our own deep ancestral healing to learning the craft of ancestral healing for others.
Year Three: The call of Mastery.
Advanced Spirit work, Mastering our Destiny path and stepping into leadership.
On this path, each will deepen into their own destiny path and where they sit on the spectrum of healer, animist, mystic with a strong container being held within that call to understand where we are truly being called to be of service. Deep space holding and mentorship happens at this stage as each develops a clear understanding of where they are going and begins to step out and into that unique realm. Initiation is witnessed and held following a time of sitting on the land in ceremony and in communication with the spirits we work with. For some a name may be taken at this time, and for some that name may be shared and others it may not. Advanced skills offered here are: ~Deposession, basic and advanced understandings of it. ~Advanced death walking and death work. Including end of life teachings as a death walker/midwife. ~Deep ceremonial teachings are offered here as skills for the work as a mystic and animist. ~Understanding our true spirit names and reclaiming our place in our destiny walk. ~Build a healers bundle for working with others and ourselves. ~ Bone throwing and the divination of our ancestors. ~Path of our unique destiny and leadership: Within this each student is mentored in the path of their unique calling so that regardless of if or how leadership calls, they feel supported and held in that calling.
