1. SHAMANIC CRAFT WEEKEND: (Ana Larramendi) January 16-18, 2015. Dodgeville, WI (early deadline January 5th)
Many of us shamanic practitioners have “projects” of medicine objects we have started to make, or are wanting to make, but have not had the time, or knowledge to proceed. A number of you have approached me asking for guidance and suggestions on how to make different items. This has inspired me to create a weekend devoted to making medicine objects, where you can be supported in a community of shamanic practitioners and bring your object from the visioning stage to completion, and empowerment.
Projects may include:
Drum painting • Raw-hide rattle making • Talking sticks • Feather cases • Feather fan• Leather medicine bag • Amulets • Carved sacred figures • Hand-made Rune set • Pouches for medicine objects • Beaded necklaces or bracelets • Pine needle baskets • Bone tools • Medicine shield • Altar cloths • Sacred clothing… Etc…

First meeting: May 19-26, 2015. Dodgeville, WI. (Early deadline April 3rd)
This advanced level 2-year apprenticeship is for students of shamanism who seek to develop the skills necessary to facilitate earth healing for our changing times.
This unique in-depth training weaves together many traditions of shamanism as well as new esoteric concepts in quantum healing which include working with presence and light. These practices will then be applied to healing the planet. In this apprenticeship we will study the anatomy and cosmology of earth energy systems from a spiritual perspective. For those distraught about the coming earth changes, these teachings will provide a grounded beginning to answering the question, “What can I do?” as well as participating in crafting new ways to assist and support the earth. By developing specialized shamanic skills, we will learn to identify an imbalance and create an intervention to bring a place back into balance.
