AUSTRALIAN STUDENTS – This class is at 2:30am Sydney time on Sunday and Monday.
This workshop is right for you if you:
- Have questions about shamanism
- Are wondering if shamanism is the right path for you
- Appreciate the direction of a facilitator who creates a safe container for sharing
- Consider yourself a spiritual seeker
- Are looking to connect with others from around the world on the spiritual path
This workshop guided by Stacey provides a community for you and other seekers to begin to explore the field of shamanic studies. If you are wondering if you have shamanic abilities or gifts, this workshop begins to answer some of those questions for you and is a great introduction prior to taking Stacey’s other workshops on shamanic journeying. Stacey has over 15 years of experience leading groups in shamanic studies.
Stacey Couch provides a safe place to ask questions and explore. She holds a sacred space for you to share, for different ideas to arise, and for kinship and compassion beyond tolerance to grow. Her work is that of guiding you to the knowing that resides in your divinity.
In this workshop, we share our questions and consider possibilities. There is no doctrine, no right answer, and no one person smarter or wiser than the other. We all bring our own life experience and wisdom. In this space it is okay to not have the answers. In fact, that is the gentlest position. Rather than try to answer all of each other’s questions, we explore ideas and sit in wonder, wondering what is and sharing the little glimpses we each have the privilege to know.
Attendance is STRONGLY Encouraged
Please check your calendars carefully and be sure that you are available to attend each session. Since this workshop is for a small amount of people, your attendance is STRONGLY ENCOURAGED once you register.
Your participation is key to make this work.
* You must attend at least ONE session to receive the recordings. If you do not attend either session, you will NOT receive a recording of the workshop.
In this digital era people tend to be more casual about online activities. That works really well for the mass presentations with one teacher speaking to hundreds of students online, but for small, intimate discussion groups like we are forming, live attendance is so helpful to make this work.
Your fellow seekers need your voice and questions to enrich the experience. Out of respect for your fellow seekers, please do your best to attend the live session.
Please check your calendars and make sure that the times and dates work for you in your time zone. And be sure to reserve the time in your schedule. The fee for this small group workshop must be paid in advance and is non-refundable.
