Gateway to Shamanic Sound Healing: A Five-Month Course

Saturdays 10am – 4 pm

February 1, March 7, April 4, May 2, June 20. 10 am-4 pm Saturdays: $395/$250 returning participants.

The overarching goal of this course is to support you in adding more intentional spirit-guided sound to your everyday life for manifesting and wellness, and to any healing modalities (shamanism, Reiki, body work, eg.) you may be engaged in for more potent transformation and results. Purely experiential, we engage in exercises, processes and ceremonies that are designed to help you: rediscover and feel more confident using your voice as powerful creative sound healing instruments; expand your abilities to listen to and form new and deeply satisfying relationships with sound healing allies; enhance your abilities to use sound to channel spiritual power and wisdom for the purpose of enlivening and transforming  ourselves, others, Earth. 

Specific applications to shamanic healing and Reiki include learning techniques where intentional sound can be used to to enhance the potency of processes including:
1) Extraction—removing dense energies and thoughtforms;
2) Filling & imbuing with the wisdom and power that rides in on spirit-guided sound;
3) Invocation: calling in compassionate helping spirits, honoring the elements and ancestors, and
4) Creating sacred space—charging a ceremonial, learning, and/or healing space with high frequency spirit-filled energies.

This course is part of the LightSong School of 21st Century Shamanism’s curriculum for advanced degree programs.

February 2 – June 7

Soul and Family Constellations

Sunday 10 am – 5 pm: $55

This elegant, efficient and inspiring modality of transformation helps us to create shifts in the energetics of our relationships with a broad array of things in our life’s system that affect our soul’s expression (Soul Constellations), or aspects of our life that might be affected by hidden family dynamics (Family Constellations). 

Through an embodied process of sensing the vibration of truth of the “Knowing Field”, which is very much akin to shamanism’s Non-Ordinary reality, we allow ourselves to be moved by energies in the field that yield information and healing. We open to the Knowing Field’s infinite wisdom about every thing that ever has been, is and will be. We use our bodies as the brilliant sensing & knowing instruments that they are, to detect and inspire slow specific movement in relationship to components of Family or Soul. 

We can dissolve transgenerational entanglements and resolve contemporary patterns that have ancestral roots or foundations. We can discover and shift our perspectives and positions to express and experience vibrancy and well-being.

February 21-June 12

Reiki Symbols and Sound Synergy Circles

Friday 1-6 pm February 21, March 20,  April 17, May 8, June 12: $45 per session

This supportive circle of experimentation and exploration offers opportunities for people to gain insight and experience integrating intentional powerful sound into their Reiki practice. Whether you practice Reiki for personal healing or are a professional Reiki practitioner or both, this circle will be of great benefit to you.

Reiki energies flow through us for healing and transformation; spirit-guided intentional sound operates very similarly. This circle helps us become more clear and open channels to the power and wisdom of Reiki and Sound synergizing together for more potent results. Together, we will cultivate more confidence in using your voice as a sacred instrumental companion to Reiki, along with insightful use of singing bowls and other sound healing instruments. Together, these can provide an amazing synergy and potency to the Reiki Symbols as all pass through us as conduits for the divine.

Listening, sensing, observing, together we experience the how the vibrational qualities of sound and the magic of the symbols flow together and affect us—as we transmit and receive them in fun and creative healing and learning exercises. You get to determine what we address when we gather for each circle—for example, do you have a favorite symbol you would like to investigate further? Is there a key topic you are grappling with in your life that would benefit from some sound and Reiki? We engage together as explorers and conduct meaningful inquiry about the art and magic of sound and Reiki, forming tapestries of symbols and vibrations beyond what we have previously done.

This circle is a “drop in” circle, meaning you that can attend any, all, some of these open-hearted, fun sessions. Prerequisite: The first level attunement. 

February 29 – March 1 

Metaphysics of Manifestation: Sound, Energy Fields, Matter and Light

Saturday & Sunday 10 am – 5 pm: $195

In this weekend support group-meets-collaborative healing forum, we embark on an adventure of exploring the structures of our life circumstances, beliefs and world views. We visualize and sense in a deep way the foundational matrices of matter and energy that are formed and fixed and holding our life circumstances in place. We then use creative imagination and visualization, divine insight, intention and sound to dissolve parts or all of the ineffectual configurations of our life situations, and create new powerful, nourishing, fulfilling matrices of energy and matter.

This adventure is a deep inquiry into the questions of “how are key aspects of my life structured, energetically, and fed by my emotions, personal history and thoughts? What beliefs do I have that are keeping these configurations fixed or stuck? Are these beliefs real or obsolete or incorrect, malleable and if so, how can I shift and adopt new ones? What divine and embodied sources of support are present in my life that I can call on? What talents, gifts, power and wisdom do I have that I can build on and use to channel into new structures, configurations, ways of seeing and being in the world that will propel me towards my goals, mission, life’s purpose, dreams?

We become greater masters of manifestation, attuning to and utilizing the metaphysics that are foundational to creation. We set blessings into motion for dissolution of old, and creation of new ways of being, seeing, feeling, knowing. Sound healing, shamanism, and constellation work form the triad of transformational modalities utilized in this weekend of evolution and growth.

March 22

Imbuing with Sound: Staffs, Wands and Other Objects for Ceremony, Healing, and Every Day Upliftment

Sunday 10 am – 5 pm: $85

We call on the power and intelligence of Spirit-guided sound and enhance our abilities to use sound to imbue physical objects, so that they can serve more potently, and with enspirited form and function.

Imbuing is the process of connecting with divine energies and the wisdom they carry in the spiritual realms of Non-ordinary Reality, and conveying these into physical matter. Sound is a most potent current upon which spiritual energies ride, when directed with intention and encoded with the power of our voices and our hearts.

Staffs & wands have traditionally been utilized for story telling and channeling information and power from divine sources into our 3-D reality. We use objects such as figurines, stones, crystals, jewelry, statuettes, pictures, and other items as anchors and beacons for Spirit on our altars, in our gardens, around our houses, on our work desks, etc. We use objects to delineate ceremonial space, as carriers of ceremonial and healing medicine. This workshop focuses on the process of imbuing objects with divine light, love, wisdom and power to amplify their use and effectiveness in healing and ceremony.

April 18-19

Journey Through Our Chakraspheres

Saturday & Sunday 10 am – 5 pm: $195

All of the chakral energies of all of our lifetimes can be accessed by going into our chakrasphere—the 8th chakra that resides above our heads. This chakra is where our soul’s akasha is stored, and from which all chakral energies flow out at each incarnation. Creative engagement with our chakrasphere provides a new perspective and significant more information. This can help guide us as we interpret and seek to heal the chakral imprints and energies of all of our chakras, as they are expressing in this livingness. When we journey through the chakrasphere with this more expansive landscape of chakral history, new awareness and transformative potential is realized.

Through journeying and vibrational meditation, sensing, and visualization, we can gain a new understanding of our chakral health and more global dynamics. With this perspective and new information, we can then employ sound healing and shamanic healing to bring about the shifts needed to reinvigorate, balance, and empower our chakras for sustained well-being, manifestation and spiritual development. We can discover imprints that are in our chakras from this and past lifetimes, clear impeding ones, and enliven supportive ones.

Dyad, triad, individual and whole group work allow a lovely unfolding of shamanic sound work, visioning, and energetic reconfiguration. Shamanism meets sound healing and other energy medicine modalities as we shift, transform, feel better, make strides in our wellbeing and dream making.

April 25-26

Love, Earth: Nature Divination

Saturday & Sunday 10 am – 5 pm: $195

We invite the spiritual energies of nature into our own energy field and attune to them in a deep, shamanic way. We then surrender to an exchange of knowledge and power with them.  We expand our creativity to receive their gifts, and at the same time, offer them ours.  

We all have had experiences utilizing emmissaries from the natural world –through sightings, tarot cards, etc, as omens, signs, messages that provide direction, advice, insight about questions we have in our hearts. Here we dive more deeply into feeling the spiritual energies of nature in our own energy field. AND, being guided to make an exchange with nature. Not just taking information or knowledge, but also giving back. 

Did you know that trees, birds,  and other nature beings love it when we tell them a story or sing to them? Even that tree you see from your window, your house plant, clouds, dew drops on  your lawn want to be in exchange with you. We work on removing preconceptions about our relationships with nature and really listen, activating new ways of interpreting what we are sensing, and practicing in the joining with nature beings, without a request of them. Enjoying a simple act of reading a love letter to a stone or tree…we give great thanks to our Earth partners in this way.

You, Your Ancestors and The Knowing Field

Saturday 10 am – 5 pm: $65

This day of “Constellations as Ceremony” is a blend of family constellations and sound-rich shamanic ritual. We reconnect with our ancestors in the Knowing Field—where everything that ever is, was, or will be can be known. Its’ connection to Non-ordinary reality is uncanny and unfathomable. 

Classic Family Constellations meet Shamanic Sound Healing to provide a forum to free ourselves from transgenerational entanglements—hidden family loyalties that can bind us and affect our life circumstances and behavior. We step into the Knowing Field with an issue or intention to be addressed. We invite others to “stand in” as representatives, to embody different people, places, or things that are relevant for the intention. We then surrender to the wisdom of the knowing field and allow its energetic akasha to move the representatives around. As the constellation evolves, those movements come into the freest, most ascended configuration in the fabric of our family soul at this time, reflective of the resolution needed.

Depending on how many people attend and the flow of the day, you may have the opportunity to have a constellation* done for you. The first people to register will be given priority. There will be general constellations, small group constellations, and *single seeker constellations facilitated. You will have an opportunity to experience shifts and transformation whether you are a seeker or a representative–part of someone else’s constellation.

The Talk of Chakras

Sunday 10 am – 5 pm: $95

Giving Voice to Our Chakras for Self-Realization and Self-Healing. This is an opportunity to experience your chakras in a whole new way, opening up an active vocal dialogue with them. You may have engaged in the scanning and or energetic clearning of chakras before. In this day of energy medicine, we give voice to our chakras, portals to your soul and your whole well-being. We open to their full expression and converse with them. As we reflect and intuit gifts and glitches in our chakras, we free up the stuck energy and obscuring inclusions therein, and expand out into the world more freely and healthily.

Registration coming shortly. Email Lauri to get on the attendance list.
