How can we better embrace life with heart and spirit?  We each have a personal direct-line to spirit, but may need some help to reawaken it.  Shamanism is an ancient spiritual pathway, still practiced worldwide, with roots going back an estimated 50,000 years. 

No matter what your genetic roots, chances are your distant ancestors engaged in some version of this practice.


The life we craft for ourselves (full and joyful?), our interaction with others (compassionate?), our work in the world (meaningful?) and the connection we build with Spirit to support and nourish all this...

I’ve come to think of this life-designing as an act of crafting - “smithing” - which for me is inspired by Brigid, the Celtic goddess/patroness of smithcraft.  Life does tend to hammer, heat and pound us: How can we consciously help to determine the new form emerging from life’s sacred flame?


Shamanism is still here, and it still works, providing the spirit-connection for which many of us hunger.  If it's ready to reawaken within you, please join us, for training, for healing, for connection with community.
