In shamanism we work with cycles of life. The various aspects of the cycles come offering their own wisdom.
In this video, Kimba explores with you the sacred midpoints of cycles as we are all within the midpoint of a moving season (spring or autumn).
Midpoints within cycles bring a divine pause, which can also feel and be sensed as 'nothing'. They can be associated with darkness or blinding brightness - both are times when sight is less clear.
Here in this video, Kimba leads us all into a darkness meditation. The darkness is a realm that becomes familiar within shamanism and carries its own wisdom, beauty, grace, rest and even comfort.
While many people perceive the darkness as 'bad' or something to avoid and run from. When we can go in ... and sit, and breathe and sense with the other senses, we can begin to receive the blessings of this phase of the cycle.
You may feel like remembering that this meditation is here... especially for those times when you...
Our pathways and portals are aspects of our journeying process. These can be overlooked places... especially if people are over keen to jump into the other realms. However, a powerful journey process rests upon these pathways and state changes that occur each time one wants to travel.
One of the skills we emphasise here at Shaman College, is a journey practice that begins with a clear intention while at the same time coming as empty as possible of ego and agenda.
The pathways and portals serve as emptying processes and become energetic requirements... each time serving as a sort of dismemberment/ rememberment process.
With this video, I'd like to talk about our pathways and our portals, and I can't emphasize their importance enough.
You know, when we when we think of journeying and when we practice our journeying, whether it be for our own self healing or if it's because we are going to find out and work with healing energy for...
Shamanism is alive today... and in each moment revealing itself to us. This week, Kimba shares an insight into this living practice we call shamanism and how it can be both ancient and also living... like an ancient tree with roots in the Earth but with fresh blossoms each Spring and new life receiving the wisdom for its own time.
Hello, this is Kimba. Welcome to our shaman college blog. And today I actually wanted to share with you something that I say a lot. And I seem to write it many times in email responses and mentoring of students here at Shaman College. And also when I speak about shamanism.
What it is, is that shamanism is a living practice. It's alive. Okay, so if you think about this a little bit... if we set out to learn something, to study something, we are setting out to study, to practice, something that is always revealing itself. Always evolving, cycling, growing.
And so when you set out and when you give to this, you're not going in the way that you when...
This week's blog is a sharing from a teacher at Shaman College, Heidi Kummli. She guides us through creating a 'Tiny Blessing Bag'.
Heidi's shamanism flows through her as a creative process- through her artwork and beadwork. In order for this energy to manifest in this way... her life is steeped in practice and deep in reverence.
You may have seen the beadwork photography in our website? These pieces have moved from spirit through Heidi's hands.
Heidi has contributed many units in both our introductory courses and especially in our advanced course in self-healing called Living the Sacred Path where she guides students through her beautiful ways in detailed workshops in shamanic artwork and an in-depth exploration of the Medicine Wheel among other gifts of wisdom.
Please enjoy this inspiring video at Heidi's YouTube channel.
You can also find Heidi's work in Etsy.
In this blog and sharing, we hear from Catherine Center, one of our teachers and practitioners at Shaman College as she shares with Kimba of her recent work and beautiful realisations. Catherine's shamanic work has been deep in embodiment of the connections of spirit to form and the expression of the creative energy of the Whole moving through us, as us, and through the whole Universe. She shares that this is a deep part of our re-membering and the healing of our bodies and our lives.
Hello, everyone. I'm here with sitting with Catherine and we're sharing and especially Catherine is sharing with me the what she's been working on, what has been a part of her own shamanic practice.
And when ever we get an opportunity, to really hear from each other and receive from each other what we're doing, how the shamanism is moving through us, we all get an opportunity to receive a healing, even if it didn't come directly to us.
And that is one of the reasons why I so...
Please enjoy this meeting and discussion between two of our teachers at Shaman College, Kimba and Raffaele!
How Shamanism is a path of direct revelation.
How the angels have been here through time.
How you can invite them and connect with them through Nature.
Their path of light and love is open to us all.
How Shamanic Practitioners can work with them in their journey practices.
And we welcome you to share in our deep love and gratitude for shamanism, healing, nature and life.
If you would like to get in touch with Raffaele to ask any questions or if you would like to inquire about the healing sessions that he offers, please send an email to him at [email protected]
Hello my name is Kimba, and I'm here meeting today with Raffaele. He is one of our teachers at Shaman College. And so I'm very fortunate to say that Raffaele is one of my...
It is such a gift, when we get the opportunity to hear from shamanic practitioners who can share their depth of life experience and fresh observations of this profound work that we are all called to. Shamanism moves through each one uniquely... so there are always gems when we get to spend time with each other.
In this video, we welcome you to an inspiring conversation between Barbara, who is on our teaching staff at Shaman College and Evelyn, who is currently in the certified practitioner training.
In this heart-filled interview we are given multiple insights about shamanic practice, healing, spirit helpers, timing, and more as they discuss our 7-week course, Your Spirit Allies.
Please note that registration is open for our April 1, 2020 course.
Hello and welcome to our shaman college blog. My name is Kimba, and today I actually step aside as I am introducing you to a conversation, an exchange between two beautiful practitioners. We...
As well as learning, developing and divining, we need times when we are allowed to integrate the changes and growth that has occurred. When we are changing patterns that have become imbedded in us- there often is a necessary period of soaking up the changes - neurologically, emotionally, chemically, physically, and spiritually.
This week we include a Healing Transmission- relaxation for you.
These healing transmissions are gifts from the spirits to assist us in those integration times. When our 'seeking' minds can rest and our whole system can re-align.
This audio relaxation and guidance is one of the many meditations within our course, Your Spirit Allies which starts March 29, 2021.
NOTE ON OILS- this guidance comes directly from the essential oil and spirits of the Lavender plant, if you have the oil, you may enjoy working with it. If not, the healing works without it as well! You may enjoy gazing at the image of Lavender here to help you...
This week, we look at the importance of the 'direction' and orientation to the local spirits. This is an aspect of orientation that can get overlooked in many people's practices. However, when you begin to highlight these connections, you deepen the help and support for your healing sessions with yourself or with others. We offer guidance for how to include the local spirits in your shamanic rituals.
Hello and welcome to Shaman College podcast. My name is Kimba.
As I sit here, I am tuning in and welcoming the direction of the local spirits. And this is a direction that I want to discuss with you today and look at. As I sit here, I'm in my treatment space and the local spirits are interwoven into this treatment space. So many healing sessions have been done here, and I know that the trees that overlook this space the plants, the fox paths, the underground stream, the birds that live in the hedges and trees, the...
