Learn Ancient Shaman practices and claim the powers in the North. Build a North Medicine Bundle to hold the wisdom. Each Season a Shaman Ways full training is offered. The "North" will be experiencing the Wind Spirits - dress warm - We'll meet at Topanga Beach - NW end and then move to the house (5 miles up PCH and the Canyon) to build the Rainbow Arrows or the Rainbow Serpent. You are combining 3 workshops (or 3 sessions) in a one day intensive.
By the end of the workshop you will "explore and know" the North and be able to work with The Winds of Change.
The Solar Winds bring in your potential - often beyond your current awareness.
You will anchor this wisdom into an ancient practice of the Rain Dance and "planting seeds" in the Web of Life and turn it over to the Great Mystery - assuring growth beyond your past limits.
If you want a dynamic and fruitful 2013 - now is the time to activate the Cleansing Winds.
Explore the ancient practice of activating and empowering a Medicine Bundle - and also build a Medicine Wheel for your Vision for the coming year.
The results are similar to a Vision Quest - in that you are pulling in Visions and Power. The workshop includes all the elements you need: oils, herbs, chants, songs and prayers to build your link-in with the North Quarter and to own this traditional Shaman wisdom practice.
At the end of the day you will have the tools to "...see your soul-path in your Wheel" - and have the "powers" to affect positive changes to achieve it. The North Quarter teachings and tools are offered in the Winter Solstice season - so the energy of this season adds to your insights. This North Intensive will be offered again after the Solstice, next year. Discover how to use the power of Wind and direct changes with Shaman Ways - now is the time.
Turn the Wheel of Life at the Crossroads and enter deeply into the inner realms of the North: the Place of the leaders, the Chiefs, Healers and Hunters.
It is the time of Cleansing and Renewal, assuring new beginnings. Move through the 3 Rings of Power and lock-in the Mystery into a medicine bundle to wear or use when you need it. You will discover how to open the passage, build a power bundle; align with Buffalo or Wind Horse or Deer medicine for healing and for the insights to easily make changes and create Life as you direct it to be.
Anchor into your heart-path and you find your inner rhythm and balance. Winter is a good time to begin building a North Medicine Bundle - power to clear away the old fears and to plant new seeds that support your dreams. A Medicine Bundle is a method of using the practices of empowerment. It is support and added energy to make changes and to live a life of synchronicity and magic.
Your strength increases through the year as you add each gateway of the 4 Quarters. The 4-Direction Intensives are offered each in their own season of Equinox or Solstice. At the end of the year – you have a working Medicine Bundle – and the practice of aligning with your Soul Path in the Medicine Wheel.... See how to work with your powers and your challenges...daily – and find your destiny in your results.
Each Direction holds different powers or medicine. Build up your personal power and anchor it in Medicine Power totems. The resources you need are waiting for you. Ancient traditions continue through centuries - because they work.
The Winter Solstice (December 21st) is an "opening" - and the transition into the wisdom of the North-South axis of the Medicine Wheel. A time of balancing at the cross-roads between what was - and what will be. It is also stepping into the Yin or Inner realms as the days shorten and the nights lengthen. Explore the Wisdom of the North now while the forces of Mother Nature are turning within - just as your body does.
Medicine Ways heal and restore balance. Your personal Medicine is all that will work for you. It can only come from your experiences, commitments and actions. Build a Medicine Bundle from your practices that can actively empower and asset you on your life path.
All prayer is about power or medicine: The power to heal or to thrive. Power comes from two sources , one is from Life Force or Source and assistance from the Star Nation; Great Spirit and the Ancient Mother of all things - "above you."
The second source of power is through your blood ancestors (Tribal Soul or Karmic ancestors) and Earth Mother and the Elements of Creation.
This Power reaches into the underworld of Spirit - where all "life" originates and then "grows" into the world we know.
Shamanic Journeying is exploring alternate realities to heal (lost soul parts) and to enlist Power or support and guidance to live your life in Beauty & abundance.
Use both in daily practice and your life will transform as you direct it through using the tools of the Medicine Way.
You will explore the rituals and practices of Shaman Power Ways in the North and an introduction into working with the Spirit Keeper of Cleansing and Renewal - The Winds of Change. Animal guides and Medicine, Spirit Keepers of Place, sound, vibration and scents of Plant Medicine. You will build a basic Medicine Wheel and fully develop the North Quarter in your own unique symbols and meanings.
Your Medicine Bundle can be worn or used in your Wheel. The Medicine Wheel is the practice of placing your Soul-self out into a form (4 directions and cross-roads) of the Medicine Wheel. Now you can work with issues, solve problems and release long-standing limits or fears.
Now is an excellent time to:
Learn to open the North Gate and enter within - below the surface of life. The North is the Place of leadership and claiming your destiny. You will turn the Wheel and move through the 4 levels and arrive at the Cross-roads of the North. Meet with Buffalo (Horse or Deer) - Spirit Keeper of the North - who will guide your healing and journey into inner realms. It is here you cross over from the to the Blue Road of Spirit and work with the Great Mystery.
Calling In: Open your heart/mind/body to the wisdom within: Heart resonance. Opening the outer heart-chamber (3 chambers & in the inner chamber is union with your Source and Soul-self.)
Explore your relationship with the North, AND the Animal or Ancestral Spirit Keeper. Build a relationship and a personal power to "go within" and birth your dream over the coming winter. Cleanse out the old: retrieve lost soul parts and reclaim your light and energy - mired in the past. All the herbs and oils you need are provided - with the wrapping for the bundle.
Choose 4 Stones for the 4 directions and a Medicine Ancestor or power totem to assist you. Empower the stones for working with your Medicine Wheel. If you have a Medicine Wheel - bring the 4 stones for the 4 directions.
Build your relationship with the Winds of Change: offerings, asking and receiving. Winds and the 3 rings of power: transforming, transmutation and transfiguration -- are Shaman creative tools and practices.
Journey with Wind Spirits - explore and release a pain, heal, and open to receive grace. Save the power and wisdom in a stone for your Medicine Bundle or Wheel.
Community healing with the Winds for cleansing the lower, middle and upper worlds. Letting go and trusting - with each conscious breath you join in the creative process of life and bend the outcomes to your heart-path.
Your experiences produced the memories that limit you. See how to dissolve them and be free to align with Source and your life purpose through Hawaiian Huna wisdom. This is the power of transfiguration and using the Mystery.
Tree Wisdom: Shape-shifting and explore drawing in and releasing: Abundance. Speak to the tree and Guardian Spirits of the North- shape-shift and discover the meaning for you. Your Rainbow Serpent or Arrow of your creative desires - are built on a tree limb. Make offerings and receive a gift and create a relationship.
Winds of Change and Wisdom: Wind Spirits calling-in and offering, exchange commitments (let go of the old) now ask to fill this space with your wishes. Explore how to talk or "feel" with Wind. Anchor in the gift and find a power totem to connect you.
Choose medicine items and activate them for your Medicine Bundle. Tie your dreams into the rainbow of the future - using the web of life and wind spirits to bring in qualities you want. Also add the magic of conjure oil to assure your successful outcome.
