Shamanism is a step on our Soul’s journey that leads us to our own power, discovering a more authentic self, who we know ourselves to be.
Every indigenous culture has its own Shaman. Each Shaman uses the strong medicine that has been passed down through their long lineage of healers. For those of us who are not native to these cultures - we seek it, learn the ways, and share it.
Each of us are healers in our own unique way, with strong medicine that we too have gained from our ancestors - who were the day keepers; gardeners, farmers, herbalist, midwives, story tellers, and more. In fact, we descend from ancient healers, Shamanic in nature. And these ancient luminous healers are always with us, helping us expand our consciousness, heal ourselves and live harmoniously with the earth.
Shamans journey. They commune with the spirit world, medicine plants, animals, the earth, the sky, and all the in between. Shamans journey across the rainbow bridge to other realms, they listen to the sounds of nature, music, drumming, rattling, they are the story tellers. Shamans harmonize with the four winds, the elements of nature, and the archetypes that guide healing. Shaman’s extract heavy hoocha energy, retrieve parts of the soul that has left, they illuminate the luminous energy field, help other’s live and die well, and they create ceremony.
Shaman’s use healing tools such as medicine stones and crystals, feathers, medicine plants, sage, Palo Santo, tobacco, cornmeal, candles, drums, rattles, flutes, and more… all creating their strong medicine. It is noted that every piece of the Shamans strong medicine bag or mesa is alive with healing energy and has its own master spirit that entered into it the moment of its creation.
A Shaman’s focus to help heal the earth and all her children, and to help others get well spiritually and physically by restoring personal power and energy.
Shamans are healers who return people to their strengths that have been covered over, freighted, or shocked, or has been belittled to where it no longer feels clean to be in ones’ own body, mind, or heart.
Shamans are the healers that sees what is needed to clear the psyche, clear the heart, clear the soul – so the soul can rest peacefully within the body.
A Shaman is a Healer.
And... they help create life and inspire others to live life creatively.
Shamanic Retreats in Maine
When we go to our wild places
It’s there we find our true nature
– Let’s drum, rattle, chant. Let’s reconnect with all the parts of self. Together, let’s hold Sacred space as we journey through the archetypes of the Sand-Painting Medicine Wheel. Here on this journey, we will step into the wild places within; releasing the weight of our own history and all that we no longer wish to carry. It’s here on this journey we will return to self, allowing our soul re-remember it's reason for being born. It's here we step into a state of grace of who we are now and who we are becoming. It’s here we begin to dream our dreams with new hope and possibilities.
- The old ways remind us that every tribe has their own healer, strong medicine. Practices that have been passed down from generation to generation. We are not so far removed from these practices as we've come to believe. This retreat is about re-remembering our own Strong Medicine and applying it to our own life. The life we came here to live.
