Hedge Shamanism works with mother earth and Spirit to help ourselves move towards becoming whole. Shamanism is as old as humanity itself. It works on the ancient belief that the whole universe is made up of energy. Everything in the universe is linked, because at the core everything is the same energy. We are able to communicate with all things in the universe; be they invisible spirit, tree, rock, animal or person. This weekend we will work with and learn from our ancestors. During the experiential workshop, we will work with some of the universal shamanic techniques and learning. This course is suitable for beginners but the materials on working with Ancestors will be new to Claridge House students so those who have attended previous courses will be most welcome to attend.
