Join the NSEAS team for a weekend of personal discovery and understanding.
The Shamanic Weekend Workshop is a 2½ day transformative “kick-start” program where you will learn the basic philosophies and techniques of the Practice that can lead you to experience Shamanic Journeying and Expanded Awareness.
Journeying is a highly valuable tool that can enable you to access the deep wisdom that the Universe offers. You can use this tool to connect with teachers, spirit guides, power animals and helping spirits in the Lower, Middle and Upper Worlds. In these realities, you may find solutions to problems, be able to resolve inner conflicts, and find wholeness and balance.
Instruction, practice and focus can provide you the tools to expand your consciousness and awareness to other realms of reality, which can empower you with the wisdom to find and embrace your true self.
The Fire Goddess Invites You
Know thyself and thou wilt know the Universe and the Gods. – Temple at Delphi
What you will learn
The beginning of journeying is in expanded awareness and increased consciousness demonstrated by a thorough and complete understanding of one’s self. Your weekend starts with community building and games that allow you to discover how ‘you do you’ in your daily lives. You will then learn what biases you have that may be holding you back in work and personal relationships, where and what you natural strengths and weaknesses are when facing challenges and how to shift your skills so that your best tools are always available regardless of the challenge.
To a Magical Weekend Under the Stars
Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself. – Leo Tolstoy
Exercises for developing Awareness are taught. Breath-, Energy-, and Drum-work are introduced, as well as the Physical aspects of Shamanic Practice. The next step is learning to augment your natural strengths and weaknesses with new tools and abilities. This is the start of expanded awareness and increased consciousness. This part of the training involves recognizing what is “you” versus what is “they”, learning to clearly separate your beliefs from others so you can be free of influences, hence gain the skill to select what will influence you and how.
Journeying techniques are then taught, including finding Teachers, and journeying techniques to the Lower and Upper worlds depending on the class. Specifics will be customized to the needs of the class.
