HEALING EARTH - online course

From ancient times shamans have worked together with Nature for healing, power, knowledge and wisdom. On this extended workshop, you will learn how to listen to the Spirits of Nature, and work together with the Earth for our mutual well-being and survival. We will ask how we can take part in healing work for and with Nature and how Nature can help humans become more whole again.

During our time together, we will explore what it means to be in deep relationship with the Earth, as the basis of all we do, and how it can become a way of being. When we learn about the balance of giving and receiving, we also learn more about Healing. We will ask how to best use our gifts and how we can bring Power to our Voices. We will explore the importance of Gratitude, Love and Trust in our relationship to the Earth and experience a variety of healing ceremonies, both individually and as a circle. We will ask to come into partnership so we may always work with the Earth, not only for it, and listen to what the Earth asks of us now.

As we strengthen our shamanic practice, we become more ready to play our part in the world. By asking for help, we can see beyond the physical situation into the Spirit perspective. The main work of the shaman is, and always has been, to heal illness and help maintain balance, both physically, emotionally, and spiritually. In the shamanic worldview, healing is not only an individual matter but is related to the larger community, extending beyond humans to all that is. Now more than ever, we need to remember this way of being. When we engage with healing work, we are always engaging with the whole.

By communicating directly with the Earth, we can learn more about ecological and spiritual healing systems, and how Nature wants to work with us as a healing partner. We will not assume what the Earth needs, but take time to ask and listen. When we work together in Circle, and build a sense of community – with other humans, Spirits and Nature beings – we remember how we are interconnected, all part of the Earth. As we recognize our mutual interdependence, we open more fully to the harmony and possibility of Life.

Participants must have completed introductory course The Shaman's Journey or agreed equivalent - please check with us. You must be able to journey well in the way we teach and have a good connection with at least two Spirit helpers and teachers.

The course is taught by Jonathan and Zara, in English.

************************************************************

This course is held as online meetings in a workshop group of max 24 participants.  You will be asked to do essential personal work and exercises in between meetings to experience the practice more fully and receive personal teachings from your Spirit Helpers. You will also be asked to join small group work with other participants in between some meetings. The large zoom meetings offer teaching, deep sharing and listening, meditations, ceremonies, writing, song and rattle work. Drum journeys are done at home in between sessions, with given intentions. You will also have access to supporting material to help you deepen your practice.

*** Please be aware that this is an intensive programme which focuses on working together as a Circle. Before booking, please make sure you intend to participate fully in all sessions and want to engage with the work in between, as well as with other participants. This is not a course for those who wish to work mainly on their own.

We will meet via Zoom for a 3hr circle on six Saturdays, on the following dates:

* Meeting 1: 26 June
* Meeting 2: 10 July
* Meeting 3: 24 July

* Meeting 4: 14 Aug
* Meeting 5: 11 Sep

In the early part of the course we will meet every 2 weeks.  Later on there will be more time in between meetings, to give space for work at home and the small peer group gatherings.

IMPORTANT: Please make sure you can attend all sessions before booking.

TIME: 
Saturdays, 16.00-19.00 Swedish time (CEST/CET)

To make it more accessible, this course is offered at three different price levels. Please consider what you are able to give at this time and choose the price that is right for you:

APPLICATION & BOOKING:
For booking information, please email Zara: courses@asbacka.org

* When booking, please state which price you will pay and where you live. Once you pay, there are no refunds.

* Please also email us a 1-2 page Letter telling about: why you want to do this course now, what you hope to learn and how you feel about your relationship to the Earth. Writing this letter will help you to prepare for the course and also give us a fuller picture of where you are before we begin.

* If you have not worked with us before, please write to us about your shamanic training, what shamanic teachers you have worked with, and how you work with shamanic journeying practice.

IMPORTANT:
Please only book if you are able to take part fully in all meetings and engage with the Spirit work in between sessions

TECHNICAL INFORMATION: 

You will need to connect to the Zoom meetings via a computer or tablet (rather than a phone). In between meetings you will be given work to do at home as well as space on a dedicated facebook group for participant sharing and teacher comments. If you prefer not to use facebook, it is still possible to join in with the course through the Zoom meetings only.

If you have never taken part in an online course, it is quite simple and you will get technical guidance to help you prepare. This is a different way of meeting but very powerful in its own way.
