Shamanism & Shamanic Coaching
Shamanism is the oldest form of mind/body
healing known, using 'journeys' into altered states of consciousness to
restore and enhance well-being. Shamanism is estimated by archeologists to
be at least forty thousand years old, and has been practiced continuously by
virtually all indigenous peoples. Yet in the West huge energy has been
expended to eradicate shamanic practices.
We look to shamanism for insights into better ways
to coach individuals and groups. While shamanic coaching may not replace
the need for psychological and medical treatment, shamanic coaching offers
experiences and skills that are not available in psychology or
medicine. See Relationship
- Know yourself as a basis for providing
shamanic coaching and guidance to friends or clients.
- Learn how to awaken out of trance states,
develop your intuition and stop your inner dialogue.
- Experience reality without interference
from your thoughts and discover your own wisdom and inner teachers.
- Live a life of power, rather than
distractions by emotional judgments. Explore the magic of mindfulness
and the immovable mind, and reduce the chaos of thoughts and emotions.
- Explore “spiritual psychology” and
“spiritual physiology” - delve into areas of yourself that medicine,
psychotherapy and religion can rarely discuss or even acknowledge.
We offer Soul Recovery (retrieving the essence of self
from some place, usually following trauma or abuse), Extraction (removing
displaced energies, sometimes called intrusions or thoughtforms,
that upset your body and are often associated with illness) and Shamanic Coaching.
Shamanic coaching and counseling includes ways to communicate
with 'spirits' that have been practiced since prehistoric times. You can learn
how to journey into non-ordinary realities for direct guidance. In a
separate reality you may contact strange 'teachers' who offer healing and wisdom.
Answers to your questions about others often include
information for you about your own current life issues, and can
provide insights and solutions to your personal issues. Learn how to combine the sensitivity of
relationship coaching with the age-old wisdom of the shamans.

Shamanic Coaching & Counseling
You and I are integral parts of our natural world, a world
made of energy that you can learn how to tap directly. You may decide to use
shamanic work to heal a physical, emotional or spiritual issues or to flow
through a life transition with a sense of direction. Yet nothing need be
'bad' or 'wrong' - rather you may want to connect more strongly with your
human world or with your Spirit.
coaching, we help you find unconscious archetypes that can transform and
heal a fractured psyche into a coherent whole. We address your earthly
desires and holistic needs in regards to your life, your environment and
When you work with us, you will find that you are not alone
emotionally or spiritually. We and others are willing to travel with you and
support you on your path. Your shamanic coaching and counseling is a wonderful
intellectual and emotional adventure which we can both share.
As shamanic healing often deals
with 'spiritual' aspects of illness, we cannot always predict the results
that manifest emotionally or physically. Shamanic healing does not replace
the need for traditional psychological and medical treatment.
Shamanic coaching and counseling operates at an interface of
shamanism and systemic coaching. This perception of the world recognizes no
separation between mind and matter and upholds the importance of personal
choice, authenticity, responsibility, acknowledging human beings as unique and
whole, exploring subjective experience and developing emotional maturity.
Shamanic Coach Training
Our Shamanic Coach training consists of participation in
our Systemic Coach Training, a two week tour of Wales, Nepal or Hawaii, and
personal study with Martyn Carruthers. We may invite you
to accompany us to visit our teachers in Hawaii, Nepal and Wales.
||In Hawaii we visit
Hawaiian elders, ancient
Polynesian temples and energy centers, mostly on Big Island.
In Nepal we combine trekking with visits to shamans;
who guide us in searching for herbs and mushrooms, healing, initiations and
making dhupa (incense).
||In Wales we visit Neolithic
and Celtic sites, especially in Anglesey, and practitioners of Celtic
healing and mysticism.
||We are currently
researching traditional Berber shamanism and Egyptian healing used
before the Arab invasions.
Our shamanic coaching and training
explores challenging issues that surround our
cross-fertilization of relationship coaching and shamanism. We approach
native peoples to learn abut shamanism without abusing these ancient
traditions or the people who have kept
them alive for thousands of years.
|Will a life-changing vision turn you around and
call you to provide shamanic healing? There are challenges. Western psychology
diagnoses and categorizes people - it does not heal people. City and suburban
folk can get into terrible ruts. Shamanic healing may inspire you to explore your
ordinary life in non-ordinary ways, and find connections between you and the planet.
Shamanic journeys are not guided visualizations. We offer a
minimal framework and transport to a consciousness where visionary
experiences may occur. We neither describe nor suggest your experience which
comes as you interact with forces unknown to modern science.
Traditional shamanic healing involves your extended
family, living and dead, in ways that are rarely practical in Western
societies. Yet in old Hawaiian healing includes ways to relate to 'missing'
or dead family members - a group of rituals generally called ho'oponopono.
You can apply the essence of ho'oponopono in your shamanic healing and
If you could contact the essences of two opposing forces
inside a sick person,
and unite the two forces as one, what would you do with this ability?
||Shamanic healing often includes 'journeys' to
consult with spirits and to ally with natural things;
to communicate with natural or elemental entities; to find guardian animal
or nature spirits, and to retrieve souls. You can use these core shamanic practices in
towns and cities, although shamanic healing often motivates people to get
away from urban environments and into nature.
For example, you may find that rocks communicate sounds,
feelings and images - once you learn how to pay attention. Can a tree
help you solve problems by giving you information? Native peoples
experience such information as valuable gifts, and show gratitude. How would you react?
We coach people to reconnect with themselves
and with humanity. We help people to gain the right skills and then to hold a
safe space for their change work. Then growth and healing happen.
Explore the psycho-physiological dynamics of altered states
and visions, metaphoric representations and rituals that produce healing
responses. Universal shamanic metaphors (e.g. animal allies and soul
retrieval) reflect fundamental aspects of the psychodynamics of self. These
emotional, social and mental skills use practical metaphors and symbols that
reflect fundamental structures of consciousness.
Explore the origins and cross-cultural distribution of
shamanism, its modern manifestations and the use of shamanic practices. If
this is interesting, consider joining us in Nepal, Hawaii, Croatia or Wales.
A shamanic perspective is that health
reflects balanced relationships, not only with people but with all that is.
If a person is ill, a shaman may restore balance by helping the sick person
regain harmony with relatives, ancestors and with life. This idea that all
things are connected is ancient, yet as the world sways on the edge of catastrophes, shamanic
coaching offers great hope.
