In this video, Barbara Clark from Shaman College interviews Kimba Bridgeman about the creation, importance and power in our course, Your Spirit Allies.
In this 'behind the scenes' conversation, you are invited to the discussion and exploration of who these spirit allies are, how can they help us, why its important to be able to connect with them in this reality, and other insights about the process of group intention, healing and gathering.
We want to keep these interviews and videos coming for you! We know that it is our living practice and our heart's love for this Earth and all beings that we continue to support our community and the growth of shamanic healing world-wide.
Please note, we have a NEW START DATE for this course... March 1, 2020.
You may be feeling that you are being called upon, more than ever.
As a group, we are powerfully sensitive beings. This can be source of immense strength and service, however we must be regularly grounded in our self-care and empowerment.
At this time on our planet... our self-practice is needed perhaps more than ever so that we may truly be of service.
Barbara Clark, our Shaman College Teacher and Mentor, shares this message with us all. Welcome her guidance... she is a powerful healer and wisdom keeper.

You are invited into a meeting with Kimba Bridgeman and Catherine Center... as they discuss, practice and hold love for Mother Earth.
Catherine is one of our teachers and mentors. She shares with us her personal practise, her wisdom and dedication to healing and love for Earth.
Together, Kimba and Catherine speak about shamanic healing as a daily individual reality that does not depend on client-based work, yet is needed and important here today. They also explore the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine as both beautiful when they are in their highest and fullest vibration. These discussions are further invitations for you to explore your own views, beliefs and insights.
Finally, there is a proposal for the whole of the Shaman College community to join in a daily practise of holding love for Mother Earth. Each of us can do this - even if its for only 5 minutes a day, at anytime that is convenient to our lives.
This international community practise (practice)......
In this meeting with Nshimta, we get into a wide range of topics from the power in journeying with a drum to the art of psychopomp and its importance here.
It is always a joy to meet up with our graduates and hear about their work. They are all inspiring beings. One of the things that stands out to me... across all of our teachers and practitioners, is the realness. You know, when that ego is set aside and the real, true vibration flows from a place of gratitude and honouring for this beautiful place that we all share.
When I met with Nshimta, I got that feeling I was with a healer and wisdom keeper from many traditions. She brings in her vast experience in bodywork, chiropractics, nutrition, Chinese medicine and more into a spiritual and full view of our life here. An experienced healer from many paths, Nshimta is a blessing to be with.
I believe this interview is 'just' a meeting and sampling of the wisdom that Nshimta has to offer us all. I personally...
Sharing here some key aspects of how shamanic spiritual healing is needed here today for our far-too-often scattered lives. With our health and well-being separated into categories, we can really use that interconnected web of spiritual healing that weaves us back together.
Shamanism for Self-healing is our foundation course and is open to everyone who is called to these nature ways, these ancient ways for today! This course is written by Dr. Steve Serr and based on his work, Recovering Myself. Each student works with a personal mentor who is both a shamanic practitioner and a trained teacher of the shamanic arts.
We have spaces available for our September 15, 2019 class.
This is an invitation to join in a group consciousness practice of blessings and prayers for the Amazon.
One of the gifts of our deep, self-practice is that we open up to the potential and power that we each have. This allows us as individuals, to let our hearts and our awareness to expand beyond the boundaries of what we call 'me'.
And of course as a collective, our blessings resound.
If you feel drawn to this, please join me. If not... find your own words and your own images. The important message, is to let this healing potential within you to flow.
Sending out many blessings, and peace for this Solstice time.
This is a time for pause...
A time to BE...
To honour what is here.
When we set the 'tools' aside and celebrate this time here.
It is in this stillness, in this pause, that we meet.
In 2 days, on Monday 24th June, our Summer course, Your Spirit Allies begins. It is 7 weeks of welcoming the assistance, support and beauty that is all around us... in...in to our hearts.
There are spaces available, if you are drawn to this!
I wasn't quite sure what to title this interview, because Jim Kunkel and I actually explore and share quite a range of topics.
This is what happens in our work... the inter-relationships and the dance of the realms, the spirits and the possibilities reveal again and again the beauty and the infinity of our lives and of healing.
I am so happy that Jim and I were able to meet and record this for you. And it is my deepest wish that you are inspired and feel welcomed into this rich diversity of shamanic practitioners and beautiful people that are walking this path.
If you would like to be in touch with Jim, you are invited to send an email and reach -out. He offers healing sessions in person and distance sessions too.

Graduate Interviews: Animals and Shamanic Healing
In this interview Kimba meets with Sarah Woodard, a shamanic practitioner, author and animal healer. Sarah shares with us how she came to work with animals and how shamanism as well as Reiki and animal communication blends together in her assistance with our animal friends.
Kimba and Sarah get into discussions around safety in shamanic practice, important considerations when working with animals, the power that shamanic practice offers animal healing, communicating from the heart, and curiosities around what it is to be a 'human animal'.
If you would like to get in touch with Sarah and ask any questions about her work and perhaps even learn more about her approach to animal healing, please be in touch with her.
Here are Sarah's contact details!
Graduate Interviews: Movement as Medicine
In our Graduate Interview Series, we get to hear and be inspired by the beautiful and gifted shamanic practitioners that are in our Shaman College community. Shamanism comes through each one uniquely and there is so much to learn and to be uplifted by, when we open up to this beautiful healing and wisdom coming through.
In this interview, Kimba meets with Jake Stainback who is a professional artist and dancer as well as a shamanic practitioner. They get into discussions about movement as healing, movement in shamanism, how spirit moves us, the importance of bodily awareness and your 'feeling' senses, as well as perspectives on performance and shamanic healing in community.
If you are interested in getting in touch with Jake, he invites to contact him through email at [email protected].
