Key Aspects of the Mastery Spiral

Deasghnátha-Rites Of Initiation

Receive Deasghnátha An Dúileamh in each of the four directions. Only transmitted to those holding An Lia Líne (Lineage Stone) having completed The Medicine Spiral, the rites Deasghnátha An Dúileamh translate as ‘Rites of the Great Creator’.

All previous Rites received as part of your Medicine Spiral are the necessary foundation for Deasghnátha An Dúileamh. These Rites are ultimately beyond description bringing the shaman simultaneously deep into the centre and to the outer circles of energy that are seen in the eternal spiral of the Soul’s path. It has been said Deasghnátha An Dúileamh bring us into the spiral of the Great Creator.

Mála Naofa

Discover the extraordinary power of the complete Mála Naofa, come into the rare knowledge where your medicine bundle opens divination, insightful new directions for healing, activation of potential, harmonious and pioneering alignment of Self in the Universal and more.

Receive Energy Medicine

Participation in The Mastery Spiral brings the opportunity to receive Energy Medicine of Imbas, Extractions and Soul Retrieval. You are welcome to come forward as a (case study) client for members of the Tuatha who are choosing to train in these Energy Medicine techniques on the Healer Spiral which is a continuation of this Mastery Spiral. There will be no cost applying to being such a client.

Energy Medicine Training (Optional)

A significant option in The Mastery Spiral is to take the extra training previously known as available in The Healers Spiral.

The spectrum of Energy Medicine training covers Imbas (Divine Illumination, healing with Light), Extractions (removal of unhealthy energies), Soul Retrieval (returning lost essence of Soul energy, a consequence of wounds, trauma, etc.) and Death Rites (Energy Medicine for those who are dying and for Souls in the Otherworld).

For those choosing this extra option within The Mastery Spiral, you can embrace this training to a professional level of accreditation (this will include case study supervision and certification) or you can choose this extra option purely for personal development (non-certification and no case studies required).

For those choosing non-certification, you will always have the opportunity to move into more committed practice pursuing certification through case studies and supervision at a later time, such as the 12/24 months after The Mastery Spiral is completed.

Working with Your Mála Naofa

Advance your awareness, techniques and mastery in holding your mála naofa following the initial build through the Medicine Spiral.

As a sacred resource to map and navigate your life, the tradition of the mála (prayer or crane bag/mesa) is unparalleled. Providing us with an interactive altar for our personal lives and the world, it becomes a gravitational force for personal ritual, problem solving and co-creating.

The Shaman Divines

A valuable opportunity to gain deeper understanding of the nature of energies that paralyse our power, impede  our potential and corrupt an authentic expression of our truth.

How energies of all vibrations weave and interplay, from the most dense and toxic to the most luminous and loving is an essential understanding for effective and fearless living. Hand in hand with the greater awareness gained in this training are advanced techniques for protection of Self, loved ones, animals and plants and living spaces not possible to impart during the prerequisite Psychic Shields’ training.

The Shaman Divines

Learn the ancient art of Screeing. When the Shaman looks to their Mála Naofa (Mawl-ah Neigh-fa) medicine bundle and calls upon Spirit to bring to the surface of linear time what is already known in sacred time, we can find new awareness and strategy for issues in our lives that require light and clarity. In this work, you will learn and receive what is a tremendous act of service for yourself and for those who come to you for wisdom. ‘Screeing’ is an ancient art of calling forth from the darkness of our subconscious with the illumination of Spirit. In this sense it is true Divination. When it comes to the major dilemmas and questions in our lives, we are often in a place where the energies at work in the issue have reached a place of stagnation.

Living A Protected Life

A valuable opportunity to gain deeper understanding of the nature of energies that paralyse our power, impede  our potential and corrupt an authentic expression of our truth.

How energies of all vibrations weave and interplay, from the most dense and toxic to the most luminous and loving is an essential understanding for effective and fearless living. Hand in hand with the greater awareness gained in this training are advanced techniques for protection of Self, loved ones, animals and plants and living spaces not possible to impart during the prerequisite Psychic Shields’ training.

Archetypes

Bring awareness of archetypal energies into your life. These ‘organising principles’ can be navigated and negotiated to improve the positive influences we call into our lives. We also find in this work, many secrets unlocked beneath why we attract certain experiences and people. When we come to a place of mastery during this training, it allows us to ‘call in’ superior experiences and relationships.

Earth Healing & Clearing

Learn safe techniques to harmonise ‘static’ energies on landscapes, homes and workplaces. Just like the human body, open and enclosed earth spaces can carry stress caused by underlying arhythmic waves in the energy fields of those spaces. The shamanic practitioner is one who tracks these discordant energies and draws from his/her repertoire of healing techniques to remove or harmonise the disruptive energies.

(Optional) Healers Spiral Energy Medicine Training

The Healers Spiral Energy Medicine Training module include: Imbas (Divine Illumination), Extractions (Releasing unhealthy/harmful energies), Soul Retrieval (Returning lost power and Soul parts), Death Rites and Psychopomp (Energy Medicine for the Dying and Deceased).

This module may be taken to Certification or Non-Certification level.

Imbas Forosnai' or Divine Inspiration-Illumination

Many shamanic traditions share a system for illuminating the energy field of the client, literally a system for creating enlightenment within the person. Our Irish tradition refers to this as ‘Imbas Forosnai’, literally ‘Divine Inspiration’.

The Slí An Chroí training emanates from our heritage of knowing ‘the doors of energy’ of the human natural energy field and by bringing Light through Imbas into these doors. It also incorporates teachings and awareness from the Eastern traditions that understand these ‘doors of energy as ‘chakras’. When a client presents their issue, certain chakras are activated and it is with these the therapists works. Dense, heavy energetic residues (referred to as ‘trom’) which are the energetic traces of the emotional or psychological or physical ailment presented by the client are removed.

Extractions

Through the ‘doors’ (chakras) of the human energy field enter a myriad of positive energies and the majority of these bring  sustenance from our relationships to loved ones, social communities, animals and the natural environment. However from these sources energies that are regarded as ‘trom’ i.e. heavy and toxic can also enter. Many are due to unresolved ‘wounds’ in those who were/are our caretakers and other individuals who were/are in a significant relationship with us.

Indeed, the increasing pollution of our natural environment, along with increasing numbers of electro-magnetic fields, (internal/external electrical systems, microwave-based technology, etc.) as well as geopathically and psychically stressed landspaces all contribute to “trom” build up. Obviously, if we suffered any form of violation or abuse (even ‘mild’ forms) on the energetic level, ‘trom’ that may be extremely dense in nature has been placed in our LEM by the perpetrator/s. When the density of ‘trom’ is acute, we refer to that energy as an ‘Intrusion’ as it conspires to bring about ill-health across the mind-body-Spirit spectrum of the person.

Soul Retrieval

‘Soul Loss’ is a naturally occurring short term, survival mechanism in human beings. On the occasions when we undergo severe fright or shock, literally a fragment of our essence, our lifeforce or Soul splits away from our greater Soul (Spirit) body. By doing so, a diminished Self continues living/surviving after the trauma. The part of our Soul that holds the energy and greatest consciousness of the pain of the trauma separates from us, like the discarded fuel cell of a rising rocket. If this did not happen, the presence of the most wounded Soul Part within the greater Soul Body would bring to bear full consciousness of the pain arising from the trauma and we would suffer a devastating breakdown and our survival would be in question.

Death Rites

One of the ancient meanings of the word ‘Shaman’ is ‘one who has died many times’, a testimony to the exploration of death that is part of all shamanic cultures worldwide. An outcome of this practice is insight into the dying process, wrought from personal experience.

Accordingly, the healing shaman is ideally placed to be a figure of comfort, compassion and guidance to those who are dying and to the Souls (Spirits) of those who have left their physical bodies. Working from the understanding of the spiritual journey throughout the advent of death, the actual point of clinical death and the period after, the healing shamanic practitioner can assist the dying person through and beyond their fears and confusions.

Cainteoirí Ó Chroí Private Facebook Page

Following on from our Introduction to Irish Celtic Shamanism private Talking Stick Facebook page, we are delighted to continue this unique forum for everyone to interact between Directions fostering a warm and inclusive community spirit.

"Shamanism is not a faith, but a wisdom tradition. It is not a religion and it is dogma-free; indeed it supports any existing spiritual practice one already has. Many of us deeply desire a connection to our own ‘soulfulness’ and that of all other living beings in a free and natural way. This is the essence of Shamanism."

You can undertake the Energy Medicine Training to Certification or non-Certification level. Essentially a student choosing Certification will be asked to practice and submit case studies as well as supervised live practice. A student choosing non-Certification will not be asked for case studies or live supervised practice. Certification can lead to professional insurance depending on your country’s healthcare provision regulations. A student initially choosing non-Certification can apply for Certification at a later time, if desired. This will require submission of case studies as well as supervised live practice, as well as the requisite fee for Certification.
