Shamanic Practices Introduction – Spiritual Purification with the Elements

April 25 at 10:00 am - April 26 at 4:00 pm



In this Introduction to Shamanic Ways weekend, we will experience simple ways to celebrate life with the natural elements of Air, Earth, Water, and Fire. In this hands-on learning class you will have the chance to dive deeper into your Soul path and expanded consciousness with the support of the natural world for balance and longevity.

A conscious connection to Air, Earth, Water, and Fire has been employed since the beginning of time to keep the pathways between the body and Soul open and clear. Experience your Breath as a connection to inspiration and personal power, Fire as a companion, and the emotional purification properties of Water. Learn which plant foods to reach for when balancing your mind-body, and spirit.

Bring a hoop drum if you have one, otherwise I have Elk and Deer drums to share. Practice clearing Aura and Chakras with drumming, find your own personal rhythm, and tune into the heartbeat of the earth. I will lead you through a shamanic journey to find a totem animal.

This will be a day of light eating with herbal teas and fresh juices. We will receive most of our sustenance through the elements. Please be sure to bring your one lunch or snacks if needed.

We will do a fire ceremony, group Breathwork session, water purification practices from a variety of earth-based traditions. You will also learn to clear space (your home, your car, your Aura), and work with healing gifts from the earth including feathers, sound, and herbal smudge.

Each day we will meet from 10:00-4:00. There are no overnight classes or requirements. Snacks and tea will be served. Please bring your own lunch. Dress comfortably for movement.

Please call/text 208-883-9933 or email DrLinda@SpiritHerbs.com for more information and to preregister. This class can be taken on its own or as part of the Temple Of Light Academy 8 month Shamanic Practitioner Certification Training. 

Dr Linda’s Shamanic Training began with Brant Secunda and Dance of the Deer Foundation in Portland Oregon in 1986. She has taken the Medicine for the Earth training with Sandra Ingerman in Sante Fe New Mexico. She has also attended workshops with Brooke Medicine Eagle and integrates these trainings with native practices learned from her years in Sweat Lodge with her Nez Perce spiritual sister Sharon Stevens. She made her first Elk drum on Independence Day in 1994 and has led drum circles and drum making for more than 20 years in Idaho and Arizona. She made the Buffalo Drum in the Sonora desert in 2013. This program is open to all and is a great additional to the Reiki courses and Clairvoyant Practitioner Certificate Program also offered at Temple of Light Academy.
