Blessing is an ancient traditional shamanic practice, where the shaman brings blessings from the Spirits to bestow power. As human beings, we can offer well-wishes from our hearts and give our blessing to a person or a project, but in shamanic blessing, it is the Spirits who give the gifts. There are many different shamanic ways to work with the power of Blessing. They can work as healing words or infusions of power. They are often used at threshold moments of transition or transformation, and tend to be given in a ceremonial way.

We will explore different kinds of blessings and how to use them in our life - for people, tools, gifts, projects, journeys, places. A blessing can be a release and a way to move from one stage to another and is particularly relevant for bringing life-force into new beginnings and initiations. During the workshop we will use drum journeys, Nature work, singing and ceremony to experience working with the healing and power of blessings.
