A Living Practice

Apr 20, 2020
 

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...

Shamanism Flowing Through Artwork

Apr 14, 2020

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.

Remembering- Spirit and Form

Apr 07, 2020
 

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.

 

Kimba

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...

Spirit Allies In Practice

Mar 23, 2020
 

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.

Healing and Integration - Lavender Spirit

Mar 15, 2020
 

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 this April 1.

 

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...

Local Spirits

Mar 09, 2020
 

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...

The Hollow Bone

Mar 03, 2020
 

In this video, Kimba welcomes you into an experience of the Hollow Bone. This is the state of being through which shamanic healing can occur. It is a place of both presence and emptiness. It is the fullest emptiness. To work within this state a shedding of persona and beliefs is required. This is a practice that seems to develop with time and yet, it is accessible to all at any moment

 

Video Transcript:

Hello, my name is Kimba and this is our Shaman college blog. Welcome. This week I would like to explore and share with you the hollow bone. This is the state of being that we enter into as we do shamanic healing work.

The hollow bone or I sometimes say the "hollow one".

Let's look at this together...what is there to look at? Well first of all, we don't become the "hollow" do we? The hollow, you can't see it. It is the space, the rich full space. But the bone, the bone is form. The bone is some thing that you can contact.

So the hollow bone becomes a metaphorical touchstone,...

A Psychopomp Story

Feb 24, 2020
 

Psychopomp is an advanced healing art that many but not all shamans practice. Sometimes through the process of life, dying and death- an individual soul can remain in this Middle world, bound by confusion, loss, or desires to hold-on in some ways to this world. Practitioners work with their spirit guides to assist these souls to freedom.

We share this video with you, to demonstrate a real example of a Psycopomp session and to illustrate some of the aspects of this beautiful and very needed healing art.

 

Video Transcript:

Hello and welcome. In this video, I'm going to share with you a personal few sessions that I did having to do with psychopomp and it's personal because these were sessions for my grandmother.  I will explain to you the details, but I will show you how the ramifications and the implications reach out to a broader community.

Before we get into the details though, I want you to know that I'm coming from a place of deep honouring, gratitude and respect to...
