The Shaman in the Land of the Dead - 18th/19th March 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).

Shamans are concerned with healing the members of their community, and that includes those members of the community who have passed through the veil that we call death. You'll learn about death from the shamanic perspective and the technique of psychopomp – helping the souls of the dead to cross over. You'll learn about the landscape of death and about working with people who are close to death, and those who are dealing with grief after the death of a loved one.


Course BackgroundSnowdon

For 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 their responsibility and service extends to healing the souls of the dead as well as those of the living. They journeyed into the lands of the dead and mapped its paths so that they could help those who were preparing to cross over into the death realms, and those who were lost or stuck just beyond the veil.


Workshop Content

Theory – you will explore the shamanic perspective of life and death, and the shape of the landscape beyond the veil of death. You'll learn about how shamans down the ages performed psychopomp work - shepherding the souls of the dead away from the realms of the living and onwards in their soul's journey. You'll learn why this important job is not only relevant today, but even more needed as time goes on.

Tools – you will learn how to do the work of the psychopomp safely, how to help those facing their own death to cross over without fear when their time comes, and how to help those left behind in grief. You will make contact with loved ones who have already passed through the veil of death in order to get information that will help you in your own life and death.

Safety, Ethics and Consent – you will learn how to conduct psychopomp safely, how to work with the living ethically, and about getting consent for the work.
