ART MEDICINE: CREATING & CONSECRATING CEREMONIAL CRAFTS

This course in Art Medicine draws from many cultural sources, such as pagan magick, witchcraft and wizardry, African hoodoo, and Native American crafts. This course supports personal journeys and transformations, as well as providing skills to create products that can be used as gifts, tools that can be used in sacred ceremonies, and product ideas that can be used for your personal business. The creative process focuses intentions for manifesting, affirming, banishing, relinquishing, healing, or gratitude.

Comprehensive handouts include subjects such as: Introduction to Art Medicine; Ritual and Ceremony; Setting Intentions; Creating Petition Papers and Sigils; Consecrating Ceremonial Tools; Personal Concerns; Optimal Times to Create; Correspondences of Color, Numbers, and Woods; and Reading and Supply Resources.

Natural materials are used in Art Medicine to create items used for sacred or ceremonial purposes. Projects include: talismans, bath salts, candle dressing, corn dolls, crystal grids, fairy affirmation kits, jizos, magick wands, medicine bags, mini shrines, mojo bags, paper masks, prayer beads, prayer bundles, spirit sticks, and spirit traps.

No artistic talent is required for these projects. Just bring your intention. This course is available in person, over Skype, individually or in a group setting.

SOUL SCHOOL

 

THE WHEEL: AN ONLINE SHAMANIC APPRENTICE PROGRAM

 

This course is the online version of Soul School (see below). The curriculum is customized to each student's personal needs.

 

I am interested.

SOUL SCHOOL: A SHAMANIC MYSTERY SCHOOL

 

Journey around the medicine wheel as you experience a transformational journey that employs Energy Medicine, Transpersonal Shamanism, Indigenous Spirituality, and  Universal Metaphysics. Soul School is offered live (in person). It consists of 5 directions and 16 full class days. A form of Soul School is also offered as an online mentoring program. The agenda for online mentoring is customized to each individual’s personal needs. At the end of each you will have a medicine bundle and a certificate of completion.

 

I am interested.


SOUL SCHOOL: A SHAMANIC MYSTERY SCHOOL

There are two rules of the road when you are traveling on a journey of personal transformation:

RULE #1: Know Thyself. –Ancient Greek Philosophy

RULE #2: To thine own self be true. –Shakespeare, Hamlet

 

The only thing we can take with us out of this lifetime is the knowledge and wisdom that our soul acquires. So any gain we make in knowing ourselves will stay with us.

Can you answer this series of questions associated with self-knowledge?

  • Who am I?

  • Where do I come from?

  • Where am I going?

  • What is my purpose?

  • What are my gifts?

I have created a curriculum to help you discover answers to these questions and put it in a structure. Soul School: A Shamanic Mystery School is designed to be your Wheel to Fortune. In Soul School, you will complete the 4 steps to finding your authentic Self and then empowering that Self:

1. Know Yourself:

  • Discover who you are.

  • Learn all you can about yourself.

  • Trawl your subconscious for hidden memories.

  • Heal past pain and trauma.

3. Be Yourself:

  • Empower who you are.

  • Server yourself.

  • Honor your boundaries.

  • Be authentic by extracting others’ voices and influences.

2. Love Yourself:

  • Believe in who you are.

  • Unconditionally.

  • Constantly.

  • Know you deserve the best.

4.Share Yourself:

  • Discover your inner prizes.

  • Share your gifts with the Universe.

  • Shine your Light.

  • Be of service to others.

Each one of us is a prize from the Universe to our Self and from our Self to the Universe. Each one of us has a unique gift to give. By increasing self-love and improving self-respect, your energetic vibration increases to a level that allows you to manifest your heart’s desires with ease.

What we see when we look in the mirror is what the world reflects back to us. We get what we believe we deserve. When we believe we are not good enough or deserve what we want, we block the flow of abundance, prosperity, and love. The more we love ourselves the more of our dreams we can manifest.

Soul School is a journey of personal transformation that clears past wounds to create the world you always desired. It helps you to develop the gifts that are unique to you so that you can activate them at their fullest power. Soul School assists you in healing old wounds, canceling outdated vows and contracts, and creating a luminous energy body.

You may be seeking that treasure chest full of Peace, Empowerment, Energy, Health, Creativity, Prosperity, Spirituality, and Love. However, through your journey around the wheel in Soul School, you will find that you are the treasure in the chest!

MYSTERY SCHOOLS

A mystery school is a university for the soul, a school for the study of spiritual concepts from various sources. Many of the subjects taught in a mystery school are esoteric because they have not been shared in Western mainstream schooling. And the mystery schools were named as such because members were sworn to secrecy about the rites and inner teachings of the schools.

A mystery school is not a religion but a place of study and practice. Mystery school is not about dogma or central authority figures. Each student is encouraged to be self-referencing, i.e. sourcing from their higher self and their personal spirit guides.

One of mystery schools’ primary duties is to serve the Light and keep the ancient knowledge alive. Because of the massive shifts in energy occurring on Earth today and the critical need to raise the consciousness of the planets' inhabitants, mystery schools are releasing the ancient teachings for first time to the public.

MEDICINE WHEELS

The curriculum of Soul School is based on the structure of the medicine wheel. The Medicine Wheel originated with the North American indigenous tribes who called it also a Medicine Hoop. Ancient indigenous medicine wheels are circles of stone found in nature found predominantly in the northwest US and western Canada.

The original purpose of the Medicine Wheel is obscure but theories propose they were used for healing, spiritual rituals, prayer, meditation, and as physical connection points to the Spirit World. Today, the Medicine Wheel is used to provide a foundation for many different cosmologies. Indeed, any concept can easily be applied to this circular model. The most common is the use of the cardinal directions.

The Medicine Wheel is a powerful ceremonial tool and the basis for teaching and learning. It supports the concept that all things are interrelated. Medicine refers to anything that promotes goodness or healing. Common medicine can include plants, healing techniques, teachings, and spirituality.

The round aspect of the wheel makes it a natural symbol of the circle of life. Life mirrors the cycling of the seasons, the daily sun rising, and the phases of the moon. Circular living is the continuous cycle of life: birth, death, and rebirth.

The medicine wheel is a journey of self-empowerment. We begin our journey in the South where we release the stories and patterns that no longer serve us. We learn to step out of victimhood. In the West we clear our karmic and ancestral pathways, healing our past and future. We learn to use our power in positive ways. In the North we become self-referencing. We retrieve lost soul parts that are reintegrated for wholeness. In the East we experience soul flight and connection to the stars. We learn to live fully present in right relationship to ourselves and to others. We become the creator of our Universe.

"When you begin to feel you are a spiritual being which, in fact, you are, you begin to activate the medicine wheel in your life."

-Tony Ten Fingers, Wanbli Nata'u, Oglala Lakota

 

THE CURRICULUM

Soul School draws from different modalities including Energy Medicine, Transpersonal Shamanism, Indigenous Spirituality, Ceremonial Crafts, and Universal Metaphysics.

After completion of the first 4 directions, a 5th direction is available for advanced work. The agenda for the online mentoring program is customized to each individual’s personal needs.

Soul School offers a soup-to-nuts approach to healing body, mind, heart, and spirit, with the goal of fully integrating the physical body with the energetic body in the present life, past lives, and between lives. Soul School teaches you healing techniques that you can use with family, friends, and clients.

"If I am not for myself who is for me?

REIKI TRAINING

 

REIKI TRAINING & ATTUNEMENTS

Reiki is a combination of 2 Japanese words: Rei (higher knowledge, soul, or spiritual consciousness) and Ki (universal life force). Reiki is soul energy or spiritually guided energy. All living things have life energy in them but can become vulnerable to illness if the life energy is low or if there is a block. The Reiki practitioner is “attuned” to be the channel that guides universal Reiki energy to the recipient. There is one full day of training and an attunement for each of the three Reiki levels.
