This is an introductory workshop, no experience necessary, which covers core shamanism. It is excellent preparation for the 16-month Shamanic Practitioner Training that begins in early January. Shamanism is the oldest known spiritual practice, used for healing, restoring power, and divining information. Emphasis is put on the classic shamanic journey, a visionary technique for exploring the mythical and dream-like universe of non ordinary reality, awakening dormant spiritual abilities and bringing closer connections to nature. You will be initiated into the practice of shamanic journeying, aided by drumming or rattling to reach the shamanic state of consciousness. In addition, you will have the opportunity to journey on the behalf of others in the workshop and learn divination techniques. Bring a drum or rattle if you have one. This workshop is excellent preparation for the 16-month Shamanic Practices certification program at HCH which starts May 8. YOUR INSTRUCTOR Greg Harper is a shamanic practitioner and hypnotherapist, and has trained in the South American tradition of Alberto Villoldo and in core shamanism. He holds a PhD from UC Berkeley and was a research scientist for most of his life. He teaches shamanism and hypnotherapy at HCH Institute in Lafayette, CA, has a private practice in Mill Valley and Lafayette, and also does distant healing work.
