Introduction to Shamanism one day workshops are offered once a month from February to August each year in the Slí an Chroí Centre, Dublin 7 from 10.30am - 5.30pm.
“One Day Introduction To Slí An Chroí Healing Shamanism 2017”
Sunday, May 21st.
"We become fully human when we experience Nature
as us and ourselves as Nature.
A one day “welcome” to Healing Shamanic Practice and Holistic Living where we explore the founding wisdom and experience the primary ways that make the shamanic practitioner “a true caretaker” of the self and of the earth. In the workshop, we see how the shamanic practitioner views life as an epic adventure to greater and greater health, wisdom and compassion. We connect deeply with the energies of the earth and return stronger, gifted with healings for ourselves and others. We take gentle, early steps into “journeying” with the rattle and drum, an elemental shamanic practice to travel to realms beyond ordinary reality. There we retrieve teachings and guidance and connect with “power animals” and “spirit guides”, allowing us to understand how the shamanic practitioner always walks in the world with tremendous sacred support. We share a fire ceremony and glimpse the ecstasy of experiencing eternal life here and now, said to be the destination of the healing shaman’s path in all traditions.. We look at The Medicine Spiral, the lifelong path of learning taken by the shamanic practitioner and throughout the day we see how the ancient wisdom of shamanism inspires true holistic living in today’s world.
Some words from people who have taken
the One Day Introduction To Shamanism:
“..hope all is great with your good self and John, ..can't wait until September. I feel really lucky and it’s a great honour to continue with this amazing process. I am in a very good place and have been for a long time. I love my Shamanic lifestyle “seriously cool”. Sharon
“Thank you so much for Sunday, The day still resonates on me and specially that drumming… brings me deep into myself”. Leo
“Many thanks to yourself and Karen (and indeed all those who attended) for the wonderful session today. I feel a certain calmness and peace this evening which is often hard to find in today's busy world”. Anna
“I have since become aware that Great Spirit was speaking to me before this powerful ‘Introduction day to Shamanism’ and has done so since, in those synchronous moments – sign posting/guiding to a path of healing, knowledge and wisdom, to a pathway of the heart. I trust that my beautiful sacred power animal and spirit guides will continue to support and guide me every step of the way - to enlightenment, oneness and all that I am.” Lorraine
This workshop offers a safe, confidential and sacred space in which to take a voyage of self-healing in community of others doing likewise. It is a wonderful opportunity to take “time out”, to give to yourself a day of warmth and Spiritual adventure. It is a “stand alone” day, a self-contained, “one off” experience that yields positive breakthrough with any outstanding issue prevailing in your life. The workshop is also a stepping stone into Shamanism which for many leads to deeper study, practice and training with Slí An Chroí, notably through the Medicine Spiral. Many attendees at this workshop, refer to a voice within guiding them towards coming into circle with others and sitting as our Ancestors did, openly around the fire.
No previous formal shamanic training experience is necessary to attend this workshop. It is also open to those who do have experience through other traditions and teachers, who wish to once again come into a Shamanic community and be met by what is unique in the Sli An Chroí approach.
