Shamans not only work with those who are alive, but also with those who have passed. Indigenous medicine people view the process of death as part of the human experience. Healing the dead is as important as healing the living.
Part 2: Death and Dying Workshop, 30 Nov-01 Dec – experienced practitioners
In the second part of the workshop we focus on psychopomping, and learn how to safely help stranded souls who have not made it through the veil and who continue to haunt places on Earth. The word psychopomp comes from the ancient Greek description of the spirit of death Haros, who guides the souls home. Fotoula is well-versed in the ancient Greek traditions of death dying. She also studied Mayan teachings on death and dying by undertaking a death and dying vision quest in Death Valley, USA.
Fotoula will also share shamanic teachings on de-possession. The second part of this workshop is for experienced shamanic practitioners as it involves in-depth shamanic work. Participants need to have completed Shamanic Soul Retrieval training.
