This course will show you how to dance toward your death in a state of grace and beauty, releasing any fears of the unknown.

We will also be working specifically with Ancestral curses and once removed will look after and repair the Ancestral line. We will also be working with those who have taken their own lives and show how to prepare them and then help them to cross over and so continue their journey into the hereafter.

In the West, we tend to live in a death denying society which has become more sanitised since the middle of the last century. This workshop asks us to look more deeply at our attitude and thoughts of death and of those around us, leading to an informative experience which shows us more about our deeper feelings concerning the transition from this life to the next.

We shall explore the great mystery that stretches before us after our death, an opportunity to see what we may experience in the Hereafter. Looking at the potential of where we may go after our transition.

“where there is love there is no separation”

We will use shamanic techniques to make contact with those we have known who have already passed over. There is potentially great guidance to be gained by this connection. Shamans not only care for people whilst incarnate but also for the person when they have passed over to the spirit world. The shamans role would involve continually checking on the soul journey of the departed who have been under their care.

“We do not know who a person is until they are gone”

During this workshop we shall explore the spiritual duty know as Rescue work. We will teach you what we mean by Rescue work, also called psychopomp which is a Greek word meaning conductor of souls, you will learn how to be of service to those who have died but are stuck in limbo, unable to move forward into the light to continue their journey. We will also work together as a group to aid those whose death was caused by major world traumatic disasters where often souls are still waiting to be helped so they can continue with their own personal journey into the Hereafter.

This is an opportunity to understand more about Possession — Possession is when a discarnate soul is using the body of a carnate soul and De-Possession is helping that discarnate spirit, the possessor, to move into the light and so continue its journey into the Hereafter. Shamanically we will also teach you how to look after the possessed person so that they are no longer vulnerable to be used this way again.

We shall focus on releasing unloving energies, including curses. Our fears often cause us to be open to other peoples unloving thoughts and actions, which can affect us in ways we may not even be consciously aware of. The Shamanic tradition of Extraction Medicine teaches us a skill in clearing those unloving energies.
