Intro to Shamanism
Join us for a FREE Introductory Workshop! Modern shamanism offers a process for personal exploration and growth based on traditions from around the world. The practices are profoundly spiritual and rooted in nature. They provide a powerful map for coming “home” … freeing us from old habits of mind and body and allowing each of us to heal the past and to cultivate our aliveness. This workshop offers students an overview of shamanism as it is practiced today for healing and spiritual growth. We will explore the shaman’s world view and how it is relevant to the complex lives we lead. Participants will directly experience the ways of seeing and knowing that shamans have practiced across time and place in order to clear and shift habitual patterns and deeply held beliefs that no longer serve us in creating a good life. Students will leave the class with a number of practices they can engage in at home, in ceremony and in community. Participants are invited to bring a journal and a rock that fits in your palm. Bring a rattle or frame drum if you have one. Extras will be available. The Introductory Workshop will be facilitated by Rosemary Beam, shamanic healer and teacher working in the Peruvian tradition. An experienced workshop leader, she integrates shamanic work with mystery teachings from many traditions, including Buddhist dharma, Native North American influences, crystal healing, European shamanism and the current understandings of Quantum Healing and non-duality. She is known for her compassionate and honest approach that facilitates deep personal transformation and expanded awareness. Rosemary hosts regular community ceremonies in the Portland area as well as ongoing classes on shamanic healing and integrative nutrition.

What we're about

Rising Fire wellness center and school provides powerful healing, practical teachings and community.

Every One of Us Can Weather Life's Storms with Open-Heartedness!

Rising Fire was created to awaken brilliance in ourselves and others, and to facilitate Radical Aliveness by:

■ Creating safe, sacred space
■ Providing a community wellness center and school
■ Offering transformational teachings, tools and practices
■ Guiding the work with our passionate, full presence

Radical Aliveness is the ability to return to balance after any storm … and to have the experience to “do it scared” when necessary. This approach heightens personal work with a skillful, strong, practical awareness – an emotional intelligence – for daily life. Rising Fire creates the healthy foundation we all need – no matter what issues you struggle with. We engage the connection between body, mind, thoughts and emotions so you can fully heal and recover your great strength.
