Do you wish for guidance and healing to be available whenever you need it? If so you may consider learning the practice of shamanic journeying.
For thousands of years, shamans around the world have journeyed to other levels of reality gaining access to information that may seem quite extraordinary about how to treat and prevent illness, avoid negative situations, clear family issues, plan for the future, and more.
You do not have to be a working shaman to access this information as everybody can learn this practice and apply it to daily life. Once you have learned the core skills, the practice is alive within you – available whenever you need it.
Having this skill leads to a feeling of personal empowerment, and it helps you better fulfill your role within your family and community.

The cosmology of the worlds from a shamanic perspective: lower, middle and upper worlds

The Shaman's Journey course is partly based on Sandra Ingerman work on core shamanism. It is, therefore, helpful to read Ingerman's book: Shamanic Journeying: A Beginner's Guide. This book is a resource for before and after the workshop both as preparation and as follow up.
