Hello Shaman College Community,
Following the last meditation, I wanted to spend some more time with you and focus with the understanding that the heart energy fills space.
Your heart's projection is protection for you. This counters much common belief and cultural misunderstanding that the heart can be contained, hidden, or broken.
I share with you a mantra that comes from the Sikh tradition and the Kundalini Yoga tradition, and its interpretation that calls us into the power of the heart and how bowing to the heart itself opens us up to its its primary, timeless, non-contained, true wisdom.
What happens when you let yourself drop into the power of your heart? When you dive in to this centre and be here in this truth?
The path of this inquiry, welcomes you to walk the pathway into the Realm of the Heart.
The Heart energy is initiated through all space and time, it is a Divine initiation that moves through the antenna of your physical form concentrated at the physical heart...
Hello Dear Shaman College Community,
In this meditation, I guide you through your "readily accessible energetic anatomy". This includes:
All of these aspects can be experienced individually and together... they move and breathe together!
Through this meditation, you are invited into one of the most potent understandings within shamanism. You are both form and formlessness. You are in multiple realms. The skilled practitioners can truly move and dance between the realms but also actually embodying the connection or bridge itself.
I discuss at the end a challenge that can arise with this...
I share this video with you to address something we have heard from previous students over the years, that they can feel at times separated or distanced from their practice. If you are feeling this, you are not alone.
Having faced these questions myself in my own healing and spiritual practices... I want to share some insights and some inspiration with you!
Distance itself, as well as time... has been taught into us.
And yet, the feeling of separation, is real and this can be looked at, felt, inquired, and explored. There is something there for you, to help you.
You have all the skills to feel close again to the guiding spirits and to your true self.
If you are wanting additional assistance, I would like to offer all of our current students and graduates a private meeting with me at a discounted price, £20. Here is the link:
I have been reflecting upon this beautiful mentor-apprentice relationship that develops through our programmes at Shaman College. It calls me back through my life but also beyond that to lifetimes of mentors and apprentices through the ages.
A mentor assists their apprentice in drawing forth their light, their skills, their capacity and the surprises and beauty that no one could have predicted. An apprentice shows up for this. Together, there is a meeting place.
At Shaman College, our goal is to honour this tradition through our online mentored trainings. And, while I know we are always learning, adapting and growing, I believe that we have found a way to do this even through online communication. Wow... what a surprise in itself.
Steve Serr had this vision and began successfully training many students, practitioners and teachers this way. Our teachers at Shaman College have all been through this process and continue our tradition.
When we think of...
Hello Dear Shaman College Community,
One of the qualities that so many of us share is the natural state of wanting to assist others. It as if we know deep in our bones that we are here to serve and to help, we know that we are here to heal and to sooth.
In this audio, I speak about the tidal flow of giving and receiving. I invite you to look at this breath rhythm as a teaching from Mother Ocean, and to discover for yourself how you are navigating within the balance of giving and receiving.
When you can explore giving and receiving and its nuances, you are invited into the natural flow of healing itself.
Thank you for your presence and your heart,
many blessings to all,
When we work with spiritual/physical/emotional healing for ourselves and for others, we are always in a state of inquiry.... in a state of discovery.
You never own healing, you never fully grasp it, you do not control it... yet you can rest into the hollow bone state and facilitate the connections that reveal the healing state within all beings.
In this birdsong morning contemplation, I share with you a look into what it can mean to be a "seeker" and how this is linked to intentions or agendas in shamanic healing.
There are multiple perspectives on what it means to be a seeker. I look into this as an inquiry and welcome you to look at your own relationship with the 'seeker'.
We also look at the energetics of intention in healing and its important difference to an agenda- led approach.
I hope this audio serves you and those around you,
Many Blessings to all,
Welcome to this audio guidance...
Almost every morning, I have been simply standing... facing the directions. Each practice is different, each experience is different. Yet, each time the directions ask me to spend time with them.
All the elements, all of the realms, all of the chakras, all of the directions exist all of the time.
Often times we are just too quick. We have been trained through our culture to look for quick results, quick response, quick answers. So quick we can miss what is here.
I invite you to dive into time itself. I invite you to play, dance and explore what is here when you go in to time.
Another beautiful note from this audio... an homage to the North. The North, the mystery... with the North we get the doorway to creativity.
(After I recorded this, I realised that I forgot to mention that the South would carry the similar energy for those of our family who love in the Southern Hemisphere.)
May this recording reach you, and serve you in some...
In a place of marker points, of form and structure, of shapes and straight lines... there is another rhythm, a pulse, a breath, a flow and a dance.
I welcome you to approach healing work through this rhythm.
Many times in healing we are inviting a whole other perspective to the binding constructs. While an illness or challenge carries bindings, walls and barriers... we can introduce a breath that exists both within those constructs and also beyond the barriers.
This rhythm of life, of nature, of breath, and of ocean opens up realms of existence and expands the consciousness.
When we observe healing through the lens of natural rhythms, we can see where, when and how to assist in the transformation processes. Shamanic healing is ultimately an act of universal compassion through the channels of the hollow bone with the guidance of the helping spirits connecting us to the Wholeness itself.
Hello Dear Shaman College Community,
We have a unique relationship with divination within shamanism. The tools and abilities we have honed allow us to both receive information through the cognitive channels and to get 'hands-on' guidance on how to embody and breathe this information into our day to day lives.
Shamanism is a bridge, not just for messages and information but also for change, metamorphosis, growth, and healing.
Some people can get into a pattern of divining and divining - always getting more information and filling up the mental realm with thoughts. And yet for many people, this practice doesn't necessarily result in embodied shifts.
In our courses, we push you to explore the ordinary reality shifts that are available to you through these non-ordinary communications. Remember, shamanism helps you receive information AND it allows to dive into the transformations.
One suggestion you can begin with right away, is to work as much as you can with your...
Equinox is a time of half-half... a perfect balance. In a perfect balance, there is a pause where no movement happens. It is fleeting, at yet the energetics are important... it is an entry point, a portal of sorts.
Pauses are needed in healing. They are the moments of non-doing. You could even say that they are moments of "non-healing". Of pure acceptance for what is in that moment.
There is an alchemical fire that exists in the moment of pure seeing, of simply and fully honouring what is here in this balance without asking for anything to change.
Of course change happens, movement happens... energy shifts and healing happens in its many ways. From that pause, next steps are taken. We add pieces and we take them away. This change is also in the flow of existence.
On this Equinox, may we remember and be blessed by the pure seeing from the heart. The pause of balance and the love that is here when we rest for a moment in the presence of...
