You learn to change the world by crafting new sacred maps.

You will learn how to come into a proper relationship with death, making impermanence an ally, so that you can help yourself and others to fully live a rich and authentic life in every moment.

MASTERY OF TIME

mastery of timeMastery of Time has been an advanced practice for the shamans of our lineage.

In ancient Greece, time was worshiped as the God of all Gods, Chronos. Today, we are still very much in the grip of this powerful archetype.  Our lives revolve around ways to hold time, manage it, and get more of it.

In this experiential training, you will dance at the razor’s edge where there is no clock time – at the place of infinity.  From here, you can consciously envision the time to come.  You will learn skills to master dream-time, sacred time, and linear time. You will work with your personal timeline to source your life from your Destiny. You will learn how the future can reach back to the present like a giant hand to guide us, and our clients, to a desired destiny. Open to graduates only, or with prior approval.

Requirements: South, West, North, or 300-hour program.

DYING CONSCIOUSLY TEACHER’S TRAINING

DCIn western society, where death is often a source of fear and anxiety, many people die in great distress and with unresolved issues that weigh heavily on themselves and their families. Through our shamanic studies, we know it is possible to enter death with serenity and anticipation of the great journey ahead. Ancient wisdom shows us the way, describing the terrain and giving directions.

As teachers we can help individuals, families, hospice workers or community members understand the process of death with dignity. In this 18-hour class (both didactic and experiential) you will learn the techniques to teach others how to assist in dying consciously. You will receive a certificate of class completion and a notebook with materials to use and hand out in your teaching. With Western medicine evolving as it is, this work has become more important than ever. The time is now and you are the ones!

MUNAY-KI

Munay-Ki-manThe prophecies of the ancient Americas speak about this time as a period of great transformation, a time to make an extraordinary difference in the world. They foretell of a new human appearing on the planet – a person of wisdom and power who lives free of fear and abides in their eternal nature, accepting stewardship for all creation.

The Munay-Ki are the nine rites of initiation to become a person of wisdom and power who has accepted the stewardship for all creation. The rites are common to all shamanic traditions, even though they are expressed in different forms and styles in various cultures. They derive from the great initiations from the Himalayas that were brought to the Americas by the first medicine men and women – the Earthkeepers of old.

The Rites of the Munay-Ki transform and upgrade your luminous energy field. They are energetic transmissions that heal the wounds of the past – the karmic and genetic programs or beliefs you inherited.  They re-inform your DNA, enabling you to grow a new body that ages, heals, and dies differently. 

You will receive the following rites:  Healer’s Rite; The Bands of Power; Harmony Rite; Seer’s Rite; Daykeeper’s Rite; Wisdomkeeper’s Rite; Earthkeeper’s Rite; Starkeeper’s Rite and The Creator Rite. As you work with the germination of these rites and accept stewardship for all creation, you’ll be touched and blessed by angels.  Open yourself to the wisdom of the Earthkeepers, and all will be bestowed upon you.
