Training as a Shamanic Practitioner
A shamanic practitioner is someone who is
willing to step into the unknown and surrender
to the River of Life and Divine Will.
Shamanism has been practiced for thousands of years. As the veils
between the worlds become thinner, in these times, many people are
drawn to the ancient spirituality of Mother Earth and Father Sky.
Shamanism is a lifetime practice. It is a vocation, an inner calling, a way
of life. When the calling comes, either in our heart or through a spiritual
experience, Fotoula, as a teacher, can help you navigate the spiritual
planes and teach you how can harness your inherent shamanic gifts.
Through the training as a shamanic practitioner, you have the
opportunity to grow personally and spiritually and if you choose to,
become a vessel of spiritual power and light that can help other people,
as well as your community.
At the same time, a practitioner needs to be grounded. Unless the practice is based in the present and everyday reality, it has little value.
Rather than teaching individual modules, we offer an in-depth training that will cover the aspects that you need
for your work. Our teaching includes theory, but it is experiential. You will learn through group work, individual practice, initiations, ritual and ceremony.
These are some of the topics we cover in our training
The Shamanic Practitioner Training is based on Classic Core Shamanism Practice
Power Retrieval and Introduction: We will cover the three shamanic worlds, the three times, as well as experiential practice of shamanic healing and working with the animal spirits in alternative realities. Participants also learn to retrieve power and life-force for clients through journeying.
In Medicine for the Earth and Shamanic Healing with Spiritual Light we ally with the four elements, perform space clearing and experience our own radiance through the light of our essence, the shamanic transfiguration.
Soul Retrieval in the cornerstone of shamanic healing and practiced widely across the globe by indigenous shamans. We learn to retrieve other peoples' soul essence, remember our intention for incarnating and release
the soul essence we have carried that belongs to other people.
Shamanic Extraction is a way to extract energetic intrusions from the body of your client and neutralise them,
A big part of our work is being the psychopomp, helping those who are in the process of dying or have died but could not cross through the veil. You will learn about the soul's journey after death, the rebirth in the spiritual realms and how to support people who are grieving. We also work with de-possession. This is the work of Death and Dying.
Ancestral Healing is a very important part of the course. Many of the issues we face in our lives, may originate in the ancestors. We learn how to heal our lineage and integrate its gifts. We work with and honour the wise ancestors who are part of our healing team.
Ceremonial work focuses on working with Mother Earth, the Wheel, the sun and moon and astral energies.
We see ourselves as part of the Earth and Nature and at the same time we are the cosmic traveller.
Shamanic Birthing and Rebirthing initiates a new beginning on our path of life. A wonderful way of working
to heal our own birthing into the world and to connect once more to our intention for incarnating.
Supporting your Work – Having A Spiritual Shamanic Practice
In committing to walk the shamanic path, you open yourself to spiritual beings of light and it is important to work with integrity and for the highest good. It is also important to practice.
Below are some suggestions for people who wish to focus on, and take ownership of, their shamanic path:
Practice shamanic journeying once a week.
Have a regular daily spiritual practice that helps calm the conditioned mind. This could be meditation, mantra chanting, time in nature, ritual, ceremony etc. It may be different for each person.
Continue personal development through inner work. Shamanism is a path where we embrace our vulnerability, open our heart and work with integrity and love. As we walk this path, issues and patterns will come up. If we choose to acknowledge and work with the patterns they can be cleared, and we can move towards becoming 'the clear vessel' through which the light of spirit shines.
As we walk further along the path we will be called to: develop our integrity, and personal responsibility;
look at addictive behaviours and what takes us out of balance; develop self love, as well as understanding
and compassion for all beings; whilst at the same time embracing our own personal power and soul purpose.
