Extraction Medicine - 22nd/23rd April 2017

One weekend advanced course which may be taken as a stand-alone session, or as part of the Shamanic Practitioner Training Course. (Please see Prerequisites).

We will look at health and disease from the shamanic perspective; how we become ill and how we restore and maintain health. You will learn the shamanic healing technique of extraction; a method for removal of energetic blockages which restrict the flow of energy around the non-physical body and can lead to physical, emotional and spiritual problems. You will also learn the technique of power retrieval. With practice, you will be able to perform healing work on behalf of clients following this training, if you wish, although some people may choose to use the knowledge and experience gained here purely as a means for personal transformation.


Course Background

Twisted TreeFor tens of thousands of years (at the very least), shamans have journeyed into alternative realities, in partnership with spirit, in order to heal the members of their communities. Shamans recognise that spirit is in all things and that all is connected in the web of life; as within, so without. They also recognise that if one person in the community is sick, then the whole community is sick, and so tending to the individual tends to the whole. Shamanism is the forerunner of modern medical systems; the ancient recognition that spirit inhabits all things allowed the ancients to communicate with the Earth, and all the plants and trees who grow in her soil, and they learned directly from the herbs and plants of their medicinal uses, and from their spirit allies how to manipulate the spiritual aspects of disease and injury. We as modern individuals can use these ancient methods in order to bring about healing for ourselves, our communities and the Earth.


Course Content

Theory – you will explore the shamanic perspective of health and disease. We will look at the spiritual, psychological, emotional and physical aspects of illness. We will look at how shamans view illness as being due to one or (usually) a combination of power loss, soul loss and spiritual intrusions and how these situations come about, and the types of problems they can cause.

Tools – you will learn how to detect spiritual intrusions and how to remove them in the practice known as shamanic extraction, as well as to perform power retrievals. You'll experience the power of healing in community.

Safety, Ethics and Consent – these important issues will be explored in depth. The practitioner will learn about the need to completely move the ego aside and allow spirit to guide the healing, as well as the unshakeable requirement to have explicit consent to perform the healing and how to deal with situations where consent is difficult to obtain. You will also learn how to use the healing tools safely, so that neither the practitioner, the recipient of the healing nor anyone else involved are harmed.


Course Aims

At the end of this course you will be able to safely and ethically use the shamanic healing techniques of extraction and power retrieval. You will have experienced performing and receiving healings using this method.
