Perspective on Death & Dying (2-day workshop)

Saturday, September 25 & Sunday, September 26 @ 10am – 5pm each day held at Ways To Wellness in Midland, MI

This weekend we will explore our ideas and perception of what happens after death from a Shamanic perspective. The potential for healing that death brings.

When people have struggles letting go of this world they can get lost in the other world, stuck and unable to pass over to the love that awaits. This course will enable you to learn how to help souls make a clear transition. This work is known as Psychopomp, from the Greek meaning ‘conductor of souls’. This ancient practice is as relevant for today as it was for our Ancestors undertook the work – an act of grace for those in need. The training is a beautiful support for those who work and care for those that are ill or dying. Learn to support your loved ones in this transition time. By gaining greater heart understanding we empower ourselves with a new perspective on death and remove any fears that may be present

We will also explore how we can work together as a community when natural disasters, conflicts, etc. have happened. This training re-connects us to the wisdom our Ancestors held, empowering us to live a life awake. Investment: $111

Words, Oaths & Curses (2-day workshop)
Saturday, October 23 & Sunday, October 24 @ 10am – 5pm with Jeff Currier

Held at Ways To Wellness in Midland, MI

The words we use or others use with us can severely limit our energy.  We are all familiar with the phrases we use on ourselves or others such as ‘you can’t sing, or I can’t sing well’.  From a shamanic perspective we refer to these as curses. They are like darts fired into the person’s energy field, and given the right circumstances, they stick and begin to spread their poison. Curse healing is an energetic, ritual process of locating the curses, extracting them, and the repairing the imprint of the curse in the energy field. Once curses are removed, they no longer can interfere with the natural function of the energy field. As a result, more energy can flow through to be available to you. In this two-day workshop you’ll learn the technique to identify and de-energize the curses you’ve done to yourself, others or the ones others have done to you.  This is an advanced class, application for attendance will be accepted.

Cost: $111

Moving Beyond Fear
Saturday, November 13 @ 10am – 5pm Held at Ways To Wellness in Midland, MI

In order to free ourselves from fear, we must leave behind that which we understand and face what lies beyond: we must make the unknown, known. Dare to discover, to live with passion; to experience the fullness, joy, peace and unconditional love that lie in your heart. When you find them, you will realize that you always knew they were there, you just didn’t recognize them for what they were.  In this workshop, Jeff will guide you through Shamanic and Hypnotherapy techniques to identify the Fear that is present in your life and show you how you can transmute that Fear into the known and remove its power over you. Cost: $75

Sunday, November 14 @ 10am – 5pm Held at Ways To Wellness in Midland, MI

One of the classic tasks of the shaman is to journey into non-ordinary reality (Spiritual Realms) to obtain answers to questions, both at the request of others and for oneself.  In this workshop we will discuss the different techniques that may be used for divination and then work to develop one that seems to work best for you.  We will discuss approaches that can help make your divination techniques more effective.  Uncover how you can find the answers you seek within for yourself and others.  Cost: $75

Lost and Suffering Spirits (4-day workshop)
Saturday, December 4; Sunday, December 5; Saturday, December 11; Sunday, December 12

10:00am – 5:00pm each of the days. Held at Ways To Wellness in Midland, MI

Compassionate Clearing is a technique to use when a person who has experienced soul loss or other traumas may find that they have become a host to suffering beings or entities. These suffering beings may affect a person’s energy and influence them in a variety of ways. Illness, depression, substance abuse, phobias, emotional problems, suicidal tendencies and other issues may be in part due to the influence of these beings that have attached to the client. These beings are generally people whose own experience at the time of death has become compromised in such a way that they did not successfully make their own journey to the Light.  In this workshop you will learn how to help these beings successfully make their way to where they belong in a compassionate way.  The techniques taught can be applied to assist suffering beings whether they are part of another person’s energy, the energy of a place or the energy of an item.  All forms of compassionate clearing will be taught and practiced.  This is an advanced class, application for attendance will be accepted. $333
