Hello Dear Shaman College,
I have a real treat for you... that came from the sunrise in the East.
This is a guided meditation and imagery practice that honours and works with our spirit guides in animal form. It is specifically for those of you who have already met and regularly commune with your animal spirit guides. However, all are welcome to take part and I give some instructions in the audio for how to join me with the help of animal allies.
What you will notice as you go through this process is that we work with both the 'known' and the 'unknown'. In shamanism, we are doing this all the time. From one perspective, you could say that we are all working with what we call 'the known', as we go through our lives. Many people are even hiding away from what they consider to be 'the unknown'. Yet, in shamanism as we walk the known, we are open to the unknown. This allows for synchronicity, creativity, messages, ah-hah moments, and advanced...
Hello Dear Shaman College,
In my practice, I often work with essential oils as well as the cleansing and guiding smoke from the plants and trees. This sharing comes from my time with the Pink Peppercorn oil and its connection to a very specific Pink Peppercorn Tree on the foothills of a pink mountain in Southern Spain.
As I sat here with the oil, I sat there in Spain... and the tree revealed to me a very sacred aspect of the soul. Our souls can reach through time and space. Our souls can sit in many safe and sacred places. This does not mean that they are 'separated' from the whole. This does not mean that the soul is fragmented. Just as your toe is not fragmented from your ear. They are connected and one with the body, with the whole. When an aspect of your soul sits in a peaceful spot across the Earth, it is not in any way separated from your breathing location.
The problems arise when a soul piece is resting in a place of trauma,...
Hello Dear Shaman College,
This is a topic that has arisen multiple times over the last couple of weeks... always a sign to me that it wants to be shared with our whole community.
There is a special ability that highly skilled shamanic healers share. It is the grounded recognition and nuances of the personal experience all the while being able to offer healing and divinations from the hollow-bone state.
As the hollow bone, you move through the realms with clarity. You are the witness, you are the carrier, you are the messenger and you also have a responsibility of safe practice for yourself and all beings. You move with the purity of light but also the sword of truth... and you are guided and working as a team with the benevolent and compassionate spirits.
As the hollow bone you will also see your human self... and as your human self, you will have all of the traits that we emotive humans have! We feel, we remember, we laugh, we cry, we hide, we shine.
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 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...
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...
As I have had a number of messages lately regarding "Calling the Directions"... I felt it was time to share some insights and guidance for this beautiful and widely shared practice.
This practice is very effective at opening the channels of infinite connections. One of the dearest connections that comes forth is the link between you as an individual light, and the YOU as one with the whole of Creation.
In this video, I also open up the importance of looking at shamanic healing as a healing for the whole web itself. We are all connected, each one's transformation impacting all of us.
I am sending out my encouragement to you so that you may find your authentic calling in all directions... and I am sending out my blessings that you may discover the assistance that is all around you.

Hello and Happy New Year to all of you,
I have been reflecting, asking and listening to what guidance is here for us at this time. What can I share with you? What is the message for this New Year?
It comes simply, it comes repeatedly, it comes clearly... "Bring in the Light".
When you become that vessel of light and receive the light....out pours action from your heart.
When you are stumped, confused, pushed, and questioned... take a pause, bring in the light and let action flow from your heart.
Sending out many blessings and prayers of light to you all.
