Basic Shamanic Journey Course

The journey class at Catherine’s residence in Coldbrook is for beginners or those who are wishing to build their beginner skills in shamanic journeying. It is a rigorous and mind opening day of learning to journey in the upper and lower worlds of spirit and meeting your power animals and teachers who are waiting there to help you. Please scroll down and read the Introduction to Shamanic Journeying Workshop for more details.

Biodynamic Wine Tour and Ceremony at Lightfoot and Wolfville, Wolfville NS

This is no ordinary vineyard, nor an ordinary tour. We will be taken on a special guided vineyard walk led by winemaker Catherine Taylor where we will learn how biodynamic principles are rooted in the ancient earth practices of our ancestors, engaging the plants and animals in the farm ecosystem to help regenerate and maintain healthy fields. The walking tour will end with a shamanic ceremony led by Beth, in which you will all participate, to bless the crops for a bountiful harvest. We will conclude the visit in the Discovery Room with a special tasting of wines that highlight Lightfoot and Wolfville’s organic and biodynamic ethos.

Space is limited for both these events to adhere to social distancing practices in small groups, so please register early. A special discount is provided for those who book both days.

Basic Shamanic Journey Class $90
Biodynamic Wine Tour $40
Book both for $120

1 in person, 1 over Zoom.
$90 each
Blandford: Sunday November 1st, 10 – 5PM
Zoom: November 14 & 15
11:00 AM – 2PM both days

I will be offering two versions of this class, one for locals and another for everyone else. And if we go into lockdown again, the locals can jump over to the Zoom class.

I have been wanting to facilitate this class for years, and finally someone asked me to do it! I can not be more thrilled.

This is a class for biological women who are yearning to feel more deeply into their bodies and spirits and cultivate a sacredness within their sexuality. I am sharing it through the Divine Flow program so it will be energetic in context with focus on the root and sacral chakras and our deep connection to the Earth and Goddess. It will be part ceremony, part instruction, and lots of sisterhood.

Some of the topics we will cover:

western magic and manifestation
money and power
clearing blocks
ancestral trauma and the witch wound
crystals, herbs, and flowers
mantras and mudras
sexual tai chi for healing and deeper relationship with our bodies.

This class was MADE for a Samhain celebration and the month of Scorpio, I can’t wait to welcome you into our healing sanctuary.

*INTRODUCTORY SHAMANIC JOURNEY WORKSHOP*

Live Video Class over Zoom

December 05th and 6th
10AM – 1PM both days

$95

We are all born with beautiful magic. Many of us may be feeling this magic wanting to burst out of us into the world right now. But we are looking for help and guidance to direct that magic so it can be focused on healing, well being, and the good of all.

Shamanism is the best way I know to direct our magic in right relationship.

Shamanism is a practice of entering into spiritual reality to engage our magic with spiritual beings who can guide and direct us with the evolution of the earth as the guiding principle. We want to do something, to act, to help. Working with your spirit helpers regularly will give you the strength, courage, and wisdom to do what you were here to do. Live your purpose.

We enter into this profound spiritual relationship through the shamanic journey. So first, we need to learn the method.

In this two day class, you will:

learn the method of the shamanic journey

Discover the pathways to the upper and lower worlds of spirit

Meet your power animal and tutelary spirit who live in these distant realms

Develop solid and efficient steps to journey safely as often as you want in order to gain wisdom and healing for yourself and the earth

Learn simple grounding, centering, and clearing methods to keep your energy body stable

Learn new skills to take your practice deeper

have access to my online weekly drumming circle and newsletter

Shamanism is a cross cultural practice rooted in indigenous wisdom; it’s methods go back thousands of years to the worlds first peoples. We are all descended from indigenous people, and our ancient ancestors are just on the other side ready and waiting to help us back home.
