Artist Shaman Healer Sage In-person Course 2021
April 17TH through September 18th, 2021

Meet the 3rd Saturday monthly, for 6 months, at Katherine’s studio in Fort Collins, Colorado. You will also have a monthly meet-up call on Zoom to support your growth.

This multi-cultural shamanic course is a foundation for living the ancient spiritual practices of direct revelation for transformation, and for living your life in power and unity.

Each designated Saturday meeting we will gather in a safe, ceremonial space for deep learning, drum journeying, soul remembering, and creating shamanic tools. We will also meet virtually on Zoom one to two times monthly at an agreed upon evening time for teleconference and check-in, to maintain and ground our teachings into our every day life, to build community and to gain support. If for any reason you cannot meet at this agreed upon time by the group, a recording will be available.

The content of the course will include foundational Shamanic teachings along with the wisdom of the Medicine Wheel, and shamanic practices for living life empowered and awakened!

Each meeting we will make ceremonial, shamanic tools!

The Power of Great Spirit, Our Final Meeting

Plan on an all day affair, completing the circle of the Medicine Wheel with the teachings of the Center and Great Spirit. We will also review our time together and how to continue to take this work forward into our every day lives.

Instead of ceremonial art we will bring all our tools we have made and work with them. We'll deepen into some healing practices and practice upon each other.

Ceremony, Graduation and Celebration.

It is time for our harvest, completion, graduation and honoring of the hard work and play we have put in learning together, creating tribe together, and preparing to move to the next level of experience in our lives. Everyone will bring a potluck item for a final meal and celebration of who we are, and all we have created and experienced.
