The main emphasis of this retreat is to deepen our personal relationship to the Spirit World. Many people have powerful experiences through practicing shamanism, but these are only the beginning. Our test is to bring back the wisdom and spiritual power (kraft) of these experiences to our daily lives. What is it we seek through shamanic practice? How can we prepare to receive it? How can it guide us in our actions and decisions in life?
The mission here is to move our shamanic practice from working mainly with techniques to deepening our understanding of the Spirits and our personal partnership with them. When we do this what often happens is a transformation, not only in the way we experience our shamanic practice but also in the way we live our lives.
Working with drum journeys, ceremony, nature-work and song, this shamanic retreat is intended for those who are ready for a more profound way of being with the Spirits and themselves. It is for those who wish to make a deeper commitment to their spiritual path, in an environment of focus, support, and challenge.
As this is a summer course, there is also the opportunity to do "utiseta" or Sitting Out, the ancient Nordic ritual of being alone in Nature overnight to ask for help and power.
This retreat is only recommended for those who journey easily to the Spirit World and have a good connection with their Spirit Helpers and Teachers.
Participants must have completed introductory course The Shaman's Journey or agreed equivalent.
