“Walking Between Worlds”
Saturday, September 8, 2012
9:30 to 5:00

Instructor: Carole Meade, MS, ATR, Practitioner of Shamanic Arts for 17 years Shamanism is an ancient and powerful practice that can help us thrive during these challenging and changing times. In our modern-day technological world we have been led to believe that what we see, touch, hear, smell and taste with our senses connects us only to the world that is visible around us. Conversely, shamanism teaches that there are doorways into other realms of reality where helping spirits reside who can share guidance, insight and healing not just for ourselves but also for the world in which we live. Shamanism reminds us that we are part of Nature and one with all of life.

We can better embrace life with heart and spirit when we learn to practice shamanic journeying. We each have a personal direct line to spirit, but may need some help to reawaken this connection. No matter what your genetic roots, chances are your distant ancestors engaged in a version of this practice. Shamanism is one of the earliest spiritual practices known to humankind, dating back thousands of years. Although the word “shaman” is a Siberian word for spiritual healer, shamanism has been practiced in parts of Asia, Europe, Africa, Australia, Greenland and North and South America throughout history. The fact that the practice has survived and thrived for tens of thousands of years speaks to its potency.

This is an experiential workshop. By listening to a drumbeat or other rhythmic percussion, you will enter “non-ordinary” reality (an altered state of consciousness beyond time and space) to meet your personal spirit guides and helpers. This class includes time for sharing the unique discoveries of your shamanic journeys. Journey topics may include: meeting your power animal, traveling to the lower, middle and upper levels of “non-ordinary” reality to seek information for
yourself and others and to help restore harmony and balance in your life.

Please: Bring a rattle or a drum if you have one. Wear comfortable clothing, warm socks, and bring a bandanna to cover your eyes,
a cushion and/or blanket to lie on, and a pen and notebook to record your journeys. Cost is $70 if you pay in advance, or $75 the day of the class. Former students may attend the class for one half the price.
Space is limited, so early registration is advised.
