Awakening to Spirit – Shamanic Apprenticeship and Initiation Program


“Shamanism is an ancient, multi-cultural practice of relational living and communication with benevolent spirit beings that reside within ordinary and non–ordinary realms of existence. The spirits of all beings, including those of our ancestors, offer guidance and wisdom in support of ourselves, individuals in the community, and the world at large. Deeply founded within shamanism and a shamanic life pathway is the belief of Animism, where all objects, places, and creatures hold sentience and have a spirit essence that is connected to all others within a great web of life. The values of gratitude, respect, honor, and living in a reciprocal relationship with all there is cannot be overstated in this practice.”

I am so excited to announce that I will be offering a 10-month Shamanic Apprenticeship program beginning in September 2022 with my teaching partner Jody Breton.

  • Are you ready to immerse yourself in an intensive, deep-dive exploration into shamanic wisdom, practice, and pathway?
  • Are you ready to immerse yourself in an intensive, deep-dive exploration into shamanic wisdom, practice, and pathway?

  • Want to cultivate relationships with compassionate allies?
  • Do you envision yourself developing a practice that empowers yourself and others?
  • Have a desire to support the healing of the Earth?
  • Are you seeking a community of inspirited explorers?

Our program is designed for new learners and those that are looking to deepen their shamanic practice. As initiates, you will advance your knowledge and shamanic skills.  Over the course of 10 months you will:

  • Cultivate relationships with compassionate allies
  • Learn the arts of Shamanic practice such as:
    • Power Animal Retrieval to restore personal power
    • Healing with Spiritual Light
    • Soul Remembering
    • Ancestral Healing

Each of the 5 residential teaching sessions will be hosted at 2 scenic Maine retreat destinations.

Zoom Meetings: 

There will be monthly Zoom meetings during non-residential gatherings to support you on your learning journey where we can help mentor you as you integrate the teachings into a shamanic life path.  This will provide an opportunity to answer any questions you may have and continue to build community within the circle.

  • Oceanfront venue with lodging and meals at Ferry Beach Retreat and Conference Center, Saco, Maine.
