Wild Shaman Immersion
Old World Path To Sacred Belonging
Please Note: This is not training to become a shaman. It provides the foundations of walking and navigating your spirit walk from a time honored tradition.
This is an invitation to be part of a five month journey in the old ways of learning where we apprentice to Spirit herself via deep nature connection.
Through direct experience awaken the principles, understandings, and awarenesses first hand.
Learn in a traditional way called Wild Land Dreaming and experience what it is to be dreamt by the land itself.
One weekend a month join us at our primitive camp at the base of Mt Hood. Shamanism is learnt from intimate nature connection. It's meant to be learnt from the raw elements of fire and river of mountain and sky. It's learnt from direct contact with the animals, plants, land and spirits.
Hence we go to them. You learn the old ways of greeting, being part of the conversation and apprenticing to them.
Here you learn in a traditional way and through cultural etiquette have an authentic experience of awakening the knowledge within you.
For one weekend a month we ask you to consider trading comfort for wildness and be part of the wakefulness of the forest
Gather by the fire brought to life by primitive methods & ritual.
Enter the dreamscape of the land and animals as you sleep beneath the canopy of trees, stars and moon at the feet of primordial mountain.
Rise to greet the sun in the old way that elicits our praise for life as we take our place in the sacred hoop of life
Learn how to listen so the old stories, wisdom and practices come to you.
Out here it's the old bones of the mountain as teacher, the swift flight of raven overhead as our guide. Out here we're on ancestor time.
Learning The Unteachable
The original understanding is Shamanism isn't something that can be taught.
The unteachable learnings are those wisdom, knowledge, and stories that become available to you by walking the journey. They’re hidden in the way we tend to fire, or what becomes known to you as you track wolf or bear, or through the relationship you cultivate with sword fern or the nuances of the sun breaking open into the day.
There are some learnings that will only ever be known to you and the mountain... to you and fox.
We’re not here to teach you, but to provide you the old ways of connecting and sharing the right etiquette so the unteachable becomes known to you and hence becomes your own.
We’re inviting people to join our sense of play, reverence, and deep mythic connection to nature. It’s a remembering, a healing, an ecstatic way of being in the world as we heal the wounded threads of life tapestry.
It’s inviting you into the story.. the drum and song and ritual… it’s inviting you to gather around the fire and apprentice to the trees, rivers, animals and fire itself. It’s returning to a mythic mind and honoring how we’re part of nature.
Every part of this journey serves to help you cultivate your gifts, awarenesses, skills, and understandings of living in the world in a wakeful and dynamic way where you are part of the conversations with spirit. You'll have the tools and knowing to engage with spirit and the influential energies affecting us cyclically.
