The Art of Divination - 19th/20th March 2016

Mandala MessageOne weekend course which may be taken as a stand-alone session, or as part of the Shamanic Practitioner Training Course. This course is suitable for both beginners and experienced practitioners.

Divination is essentially the act of seeking information about the unknown, or the future, from supernatural, or non-human sources. Shamans have always understood that the Universe speaks to us, and that we can use this phenomenon to get answers to questions, understand what's going on in our life, or simply to point us in the right direction towards something we wish to achieve.  You'll use some methods of divination that have famously been around for centuries, and others you may not know about, but have probably been around for millennia. You will learn how to read the messages that the Universe sends us through these systems, and through signs, symbols and omens and to interpret them to answer life's questions, great and small. You will also learn how to ask the right questions!


Course Background

The word shaman comes from the Tungusic language of Eastern Siberia, and means "one who sees" or "one who knows," reflecting the fact that shamans have access to knowledge beyond that of the ordinary person. For tens of thousands of years (at the very least), shamans have been reading and interpreting the messages that the Universe sends us. Further, they recognised that the communication was a two-way street; questions could be asked, answers could be received. Thus divination and the ancient art of seership developed. There are several formally documented systems of divination known, and many of those are still in use today; Tarot, the I Ching, tealeaves and runes, to name but a few. There are also some more fundamental methods of divination which don't require tools in the normal sense of the word, and broadly fall under the terms "omens" or "signs". These methods tap into the fundamental phenomenon that the Universe is indeed speaking to us constantly. Shamans could therefore make use of whatever was to hand in order to get helpful information from the Universe.


Course Content

Theory – you will learn about the mechanics of the divinatory process; how it applies in general, and in particular to several different divinatory methods.

Tools – you will learn how to learn what you need to know from the Universe through divination - with or without tools! You'll learn the deceptively difficult art of how to ask questions, which methods lend themselves best to different types of question, and how to ensure you get "clean" answers. You'll have practice asking questions using several different divinatory methods.

Safety, Ethics and Consent – these important issues will be explored in depth. You will learn how to use divination ethically and safely.


Course Aims

The true art of divination is developed over a lifetime, and we cannot hope to make you an expert in one weekend, but at the end of this course you will have a good understanding of the process and plenty of practice in receiving and interpreting messages. This will send you well on your way to deepening your art and making this process a way of life so that you are in close communication with the Universe for the benefit of yourself and others. You will be able to safely and ethically use the technique of divination with or without formal divinatory tools.
