Return to Wholeness with Patricia White Buffalo - experience deep, powerful inner healing shifts, and learn ancient healing ways for the healing of self and others.
We are delighted to be hosting Patricia WhiteBuffalo’s fourth UK workshop. With 14 years of teaching astral healing at the Barbara Brennan School of Healing, and many years of Shamanic practice as a healer and teacher, Patricia is superbly placed to offer deeply supportive and transformative workshops that touch us at our deepest levels.
Hello, I’m Patricia White Buffalo. I’m teaching in London in September, and if this work resonates with you, I welcome you with all my heart and I invite you to journey with me.
So what do I believe, and what do I teach?
Shamanism is an earth based spirituality holding the belief that everything on the Earth is alive with spirit. Humanity stays in balance by communing with these Earth Spirits and by walking a path that is in spiritual harmony with them. This way of communing and walking upon the Earth has been lost but one can reconnect to this world by traveling through the Shamanic realm. The Shamanic realm, I believe, is a reality that was created by our ancestors who practiced Shamanism on every continent since the beginning of time. Our ancestors hold this world for us, for our healing, guidance and protection. And we can enter this realm by learning how to go into an altered state and traveling with our spirit body.
I teach participants in my workshops how to enter the Shamanic realm.
The Shamanic realm has been used for this purpose of healing and connection for millennia. It’s as old as humanity. You can see the power and strength in it. We go in there and have our Power Animal, Ancestors, the four directions, Mother Earth, the Moon, the Stars, and we can call the masters from the heavens above. In the Shamanic realm, the protection, and the knowledge of the ancestors are there to help you.
I teach Shamanism, I don’t teach Native American teachings.
I encourage participants to enter through their own cultural door to their shamanic ancestry. I open the door to my ancestry, and then to yours. Mine is more Native American. Yours may be more Celtic. So I help whoever is in the workshop to find their own shamanic roots; their own ancestral roots. That’s why I’m so interested in Shamanism. I’m really clear that I don’t want to teach dogma. Shamanism isn’t dogma. Shamanism is around in the present, right now. I want people to tap into it and then allow it to teach them in the present, using their own knowledge, letting it work within them.
Why am I coming to the UK to teach?
I received guidance to work in Europe, to help Europeans awaken to their shamanic roots. I was told that this awakening may come more easily from an American native than from a European because our cultures are different. Shamanism wasn’t destroyed in the US like it was in Europe. Europe has a very horrific history of the destruction of Shamanism. They literally killed, burned and destroyed all those who practiced Shamanism. In the US, even though they did go to war with the Native Americans, and there was a lot of killing, they didn’t come after them because of their spiritual beliefs, but for their land. That’s a big difference. So as a result, I don’t carry the pain that Europeans may carry around Shamanism. I feel guided to do this work, and if you’re in service, you go when you’re called. In 2000 I totally surrendered to being in service to humanity. So I’ve made that commitment, and I have to go wherever I’m being guided.
How is this workshop different from other Soul Retrieval & Shamanic Journeying workshops?
Firstly, the content is similar to other workshops, but I teach it and hold the space in my own way, quite different to how it’s often taught. I draw upon my experience as a senior teacher at the Barbara Brennan School of Healing, and my experience as a body psychotherapist, to transmit the frequency of the Shamanic realm very deeply and strongly, so that it can be felt even in the body. Metaphorically, I open the doors to the Shamanic realm, in a deep and secure way, so that you are held and supported. This really helps newcomers to the work to ‘find’ the Shamanic realm within themselves, and is useful for advanced practitioners, because it helps them connect even more deeply, bathed as they are in the space of the room.
Secondly, when I teach journeying, we enter the Shamanic realm through the heart chakra, into the body. There’s no danger of those journeys being ungrounded, unsafe or head-based- it’s grounded into the body, into the earth. So the healing work that happens can come all the way down.
Thirdly, we also do a lot of shamanic sound healing and physical movement through trance dance, this helps in clearing and charging the lower chakras of the participants, which really helps with grounding, and coming into your power. To do this kind of work, you need to be deeply connected to the earth, and that comes with having strong, open and charged lower chakras. So the clearing I do with everyone really helps this Shamanic work to integrate, and it helps people to connect with their own inner power.
