Embodiment and Boundaries Workshop Sunday October 18th 2020. The prerequisite for this is the Dream, Divination and Nature Spirits or Soul Retrieval Workshop. 3 PLACES LEFT
Crucial in accessing spirit guidance (and in daily living) is the setting of personal boundaries to ensure one’s space is clear of any non-beneficial energy. Tools to clear, remove and maintain adequate protection are essential in relating with the otherworlds. To disentangle and clear any attachments that negatively impact on one’s well being is a necessary prelude to healing and ancestral work. Exploring these realms necessitates clear focus and intent, enhancing intuitive perception and ongoing discernment of safe practice.
The workshop further invites you to explore personal approaches to death and the ‘inter’ and ‘after’ worlds as transitional stages of being. Shamanic journeying experiences will include attending to any unfinished business, so the journey ahead when it arises may continue well in the spirit of healing intended.
Learning to access your wise and compassionate spirits is crucial to bring in spirit protection. With spirit permission, experience in psychopomp journey work as a skill to guide others to transition with ease, brings the worlds close with heart, and sometimes ache to be never forgotten… “Death is a drawing together of two worlds, not an end. We are the bridge.” Carl Jung
The Shamanic Worlds; an Introduction to Journeying : Sunday November 29th 2020. This workshop is a prerequisite for both the Trickster and Soul Retrieval workshops to be held in 2021.
This introductory workshop is a playful exploration of the shamanic worlds via the portals of classic fairy tales. Discover parts of oneself previously hidden, avoided or perhaps lost. Connect and dialogue with characters from childhood stories – spellcasters, monsters, giants and the little folk; bringing new meaning to light re personal hopes and fears. Brave up and drop in to source deeper meanings to illuminate one’s path. Using repetitive drumming to enter a light trance state, and so enable safe connection with the Inner and Otherworlds.
A kaleidoscope of portals of discovery to enhance one’s natural intuitive “bent” and develop skills to access the worlds of inner guidance available. Inviting communication with one’s most compassionate helping spirits to receive wisdom and bring healing, an opportunity to dip your toes in, and open up to other ways of knowing within.
Shamanic Divination and Nature Spirits Workshop 2021 tbc This introductory workshop is a prerequisite for both the Trickster and Soul Retrieval workshops held in 2021.
Shamanic divination techniques portray in poetry and metaphor messages from the natural world regarding your inner questing. Playful, yet profoundly relevant information is accessible for guidance for oneself and others. Journeying will take you to the Lower World for a power animal retrieval, the Upper World for celestial experience and the Middle World for divination and nature spirit communications. Merge with an element, communicate with the spirit of a plant medicine …listen up and enjoy nature’s messages in synchronicity and wisdom.
Deepen your connection to Nature’s wisdom by receiving direction from the hidden realms. When acknowledging the voices of the nature spirits, they respond with distinct navigational signs for one’s own journey. Shamanic journeying techniques give access to visionary sources, teaching us to flow with nature’s cycles and listen for earth’s heartbeat as we walk our sacred path.
Healing Ancestral Lines I – postponed to 2021 6 PLACES LEFT Prerequisite is Healthy Embodiment and Boundaries Workshop. (previously known as D&B)
First steps into accessing the realms of your well ancestors to bring healing and transformation for the living and deceased. An introduction to the healing intent and a prerequisite for Ancestral II in 2021.
Bring healing gifts into the present from past generations, while seeking healing for those recently passed if in need. Unravelling the past from the present – when the pain of repeated patterns doesn’t fit with your own personal life experience and points to ancestral pain – calling for compassionate, non- judgemental healing and release. Shifts may reverberate from the personal, through familial to cultural as past harm is held in the container of compassion and sensitivity.
Shamanic Dream Workshop date 2021 tbc This introductory workshop is a pre-requisite for the Embodiment, Trickster, and Soul Retrieval workshops to be held in 2021.
Experience shamanic journeying and the multi-dimensional worlds of shamanic “dreamtime.” A day spent exploring the elusive language of our dreams. We will be using shamanic techniques to communicate directly with your individual dream symbols, identifying their essential message and bringing their creative energy into consciousness. Journeying will take you to the Lower World for a power animal retrieval, the Upper World for guidance and the Middle World for dream re-entry. Emphasis is given to creating sacred space, maintaining protective boundaries to ensure your journeying is held compassionately and securely. Raise your spirits and spend the day learning new ways to access your deeper sources of inner wisdom.
Dreams guide us to re-connect with soul, to confront illness and heal, to transform our demons into allies and bring our shadows into the light of day. Our spiritual traditions teach us to heed the significance and insight transmitted through dreams. Shamanic journeying to the dream source empowers the dreamer to be their own shaman – to reveal the dream’s message, offering solutions to then decide on an appropriate course of action. Dreams are Psyche’s gifts, when listened to they respond with profound teachings, guiding us to live our wisest knowing. The experience of the shamanic journey is an easy to learn tool allowing a deepening of connection to self and spirit, to then feel free to ‘try this at home’.
Feedback from the Dream Workshop: “I have experienced such a sense of freedom, re-connection and well-being within myself since the workshop with you. It feels like there’s been a deep fundamental shift that I can’t understand or put into words except to say whereas I felt I was being drowned by the wave before, now I feel I’m riding the wave again.” HW
Soul Retrieval Workshop tbc 2021
This day workshop delves deep into experiencing the shamanic worlds, with the intention of becoming more fully ourselves to express our true creativity. Engage with helping spirits to journey to recover lost soul portions, return the soul’s light to experience vitality and powerfull-ness. A positive side-effect may be to find that now other chosen therapeutic treatments prove more effective, as to heal we must be in our bodies.
Feedback from the Soul Retrieval Workshop: “I have attended both workshops with Pauline and can highly recommend them. The wonderful revelation of both these workshops is that anyone who is called to venture into the shamanic worlds can do so. The experiences can be ones of joy or ones of healing, and they are certainly very deep learning events. Pauline supported us throughout the day with her knowledge, her learning, her passion and her humour. I always felt safe and nurtured whilst in her classes and can highly recommend them”. JH.
Trickster and Shadow – keys to transformation – 2021 tbc
When trickster shows up, watch out! Life is calling out for change, trickster turns things on their head, and creates laughter in the absurdity of the melee. When we don’t heed the nudges, the signs “do not enter” – life springs trickster magic to get us to listen up. How to be with ourselves gently, to get honest with ourselves – hopefully avoiding inconveniences that deter us from the route to our unfolding destiny.
Using shamanic journeying, the workshop explores trickster archetypes, and unearths shadow at play – those blind spots bumped into time and again while continually denying they even exist. We explore the shadow archetype of the fool/ jester, with their teachings. Asking what we seek to banish from our lives by distracting ourselves with insanity (or perhaps truth telling with jesting… )The Fool oblivious to the path ahead, carrying on their merry way – if they only looked in the mirror to see the tears their behaviour is creating. A surprise package of personal hidden gems to integrate and bring to life . Prerequisite is Dream or Divination & Nature Spirits Workshop, or experience with shamanic journeying techniques.
Healing Heart Workshop date 2021 tbc
Shamanic healing is spiritual heart based healing, when we heal ourselves and others to be fully themselves, the ripples of spiritual well being manifest in our physical lives, in our community and the planet. If it is our responsibility to live a spiritual life, then shamanic awareness teaches us to respond with compassion in all situations.
An opportunity also to develop distance healing as a group, a fascinating exercise in the connectivity of group journey work, where overlaps confirm and extend capabilities. Fun and extraordinary!
Healing Ancestral Lines II – group work ongoing…
For those who attended the July ’19 Ancestral workshop or have been working with me in 1-1 sessions healing ancestral legacies… to consolidate, check in, encourage, the completing of the healing work – these relationships are ongoing and regular tending brings the blessings.
Aiming at attending to where each is at in the work – some may be still working on individual lines, others exploring the gifts they bring, perhaps the elemental or plant energies of each line. This work expands out wide, really beautifully to show our relationship with so much more than our human ancestors.
