PSYCHOSHAMANISM & THE MEDICINE OF THE HEART
New 2-Year Certificate Program
Whether you want to explore and learn more about shamanic healing and heart-path, or develop advanced powerful professional tools for your work as a healer, shamanic counselor, artist, musician or coach, this comprehensive program comes with a rich experiential curricula, a great community, and natural settings of incredible power and beauty.
In this workshop series you will receive an overview of the field and cartography of psychoshamanism and the medicine of the heart, and learn valuable tools for walking your heart-path and fully expressing Your Own Archetype in Life. You will discover how to apply what you have learned on yourself to others through your professional work, and receive guidance on how to get it out there.
You will learn how to help your client even when your mind has no idea what to do, by using your NGS/Dream Tracking capacity. You will learn to dip into the dreaming field for guidance and insight, how to grow and develop your imagination and capacities for intuitive feeling. You will learn the art of Dream Tracking, and through experiential training, learn how to develop your “sympathetic imagination’ so you can easily enter the dreamscapes and realities of your clients.
Special focus will be placed on how to apply what you have learned to client situations, whether direct, or through Skyping and other media platforms for your professional practice. You will learn how to make rapid assessments of any problem with your own NGS/Dream Tracker, and how to ask laser-like Core Questions that open up the heart and soul of your client. You will learn all this on your self and in dyadic situations in the workshop. You will learn how to listen incredible deeply to the background of experience, to what happening beyond words that are spoken, including the odd feelings and out-of-phase phenomena you feel as your client speaks. You will learn to track the energy of thick words and how to burrow deeply into them, and how to help anyone find their own essential nature and reason for being here.
You will learn ways of tracking your client’s shifts and progress, ways of working with defenses and all kinds of soul injuries, including soul loss, possession states, spiritual emergencies, and know when to refer for help from other professionals.
You will learn how to work with emergencies and confusion springing from entheogenistic experiences, a phenomenon on the rise, and you will learn to be a guide and resource for such individuals in integration and implementation of their experiences.
Those Who Complete the Workshop Series, including 2 Summer 5-Intensives, will receive a certificate in Psychoshamanism and Medicine of the Heart. Those who have the Certificate in Shamanic Counseling or Sacred Breathwork, will receive an Psychoshamanism- Master level certificate.
