Divination in Practice

 

Which path to take?

The skilled practice of shamanic divination, the process of consulting the spirits for knowledge, is an essential aspect of shamanic healing and of bringing the wisdom of the helping spirits to bear on personal, local, and global issues. This workshop offers students opportunities to practice journeying to contact their compassionate spirit helpers and to enhance their abilities to form on-topic questions and interpret the messages received. Participants will also experience classic shamanic ways to build and nurture strong relationships with their own spirits. This is an excellent follow-up workshop from the Way of the Shaman or the new on-line Shamanic Journey workshop. An opportunity to practice your journey skills with the purpose of Divination. This is not the same workshop as the in-person Divination workshop

The Shamanic Worldview: Everything is Alive™

The shamanic worldview underpins the ethical and effective practice of shamanism. Experiential
knowledge of this worldview leads to a profound awareness of the sacred nature of our world and an
awakening of compassion—resulting in a deep desire to relieve pain and suffering and restore balance
and harmony.

Using journeying and experiential shamanic methods, in this online workshop you will have the
opportunity to personally explore and experience the fundamental aspects of the shaman’s worldview:
• Everything is alive and has spirit
• Unity: We are part of, connected with, the totality of nature
• Independent spirituality—the shaman as “one who knows”
• The implications of these principles related to permission when doing shamanic healing and
divination

The workshop offered by Catherine Hughes consists of 7 hours of training. The cost of this workshop is $160 CDN. 

PREREQUISITES: The Shamanic Journey: Pathway to Knowledge & Power (online) OR the in-person Basic Workshop, The Way of the Shaman; AND, Shamanic Divination in Practice (online)
OR any of the FSS in-person advanced weekend workshops.
NOTE: Participants must be able to successfully journey to contact at least one helping spirit from the
Upper or Lower Worlds.

You can register through the Paypal link or by etransfer to Catherine@wayfindingspirit.com.
