ONE DAY EXPERIENTIAL WORKSHOP $200.00   Space is limited. Please book early.

Saturday, January 19 , 2013  10:00 am to 5:00 pm

Shamanism is an ancient and powerful spiritual tradition. A common practice within this time-honored tradition is the shamanic journey, which is still beneficial in the 21st century. This workshop will introduce an overview of the shamanic journey for consciously interacting with the world of spirit, for receiving knowledge, for healing, and as a practice for self-empowerment.

  • A clear understanding of the shamanic tradition
  • Instruction about how to travel to the Lower World and Upper World in a safe and sacred way
  • Explanations of what power animals and spirit teachers are
  • Guidelines on formatting questions for spirits in non-ordinary reality
  • Teachings on how to work with the received messages, which can often be symbolic and metaphorical

Dr. Schmitz will also lead an experiential component. Participants will experience shamanic journeying several times to develop relationships with their spirit helpers and confidence in their practice. Live drumming will be used to facilitate the journey process; in a way shamans have for thousands of years. Bring a drum or rattle (if you have one), a journal, an eye covering (dark scarf or bandana), and a blanket. No previous shamanic experience is required.

Dr . Schmitz has a private practice in transpersonal counseling and shamanic healing. He is an international teacher, speaker, and workshop leader on the topics of transpersonal psychology and shamanism. Dr. Schmitz also facilitates Shamanic Journey Circles and conducts research. Steven is a Co-President of the Association for Transpersonal Psychology (ATP), a board officer for the European Transpersonal Association (EUROTAS), and a member of the Society for Shamanic Practitioners.
