Two Years of Shamanic Training
Over the first weekend of the training we will begin to explore the Medicine Wheel as a tool for self-healing and diagnosis, helping us to discover our hidden strengths and weaknesses.
We will challenge you to work with the wounded inner feminine moving towards a balanced approach in life which is essential to the Shamanic Practitioner.
We will begin the journey of learning Shamanic healing practises with the Hollow Bone Healing to help awaken our ‘inner knowing’.
You will be shown protection rituals and given the 1st rite of the Munay Ki.
We will continue our voyage around the Medicine wheel and discover our Spirit Guide from each of the Cardinal directions.
We will seek the different tools available to the Shamanic Practitioner and begin to focus on our individual gifts and abilities.
We continue the challenging work of regaining inner balance with an exploration and healing of the wounded Masculine.
We will begin to gather and manifest the energy of our Medicine bundles.
The 2nd rite of the Munay Ki will be given.
Over this weekend we start to explore the allies we can call on from the Plant and Animal worlds
We will explore our connection to plant spirits and discover a plant ally to guide us on our plant medicine path. Learn methods to communicate with plants and how to utilise their innate healing powers in different forms for all beings: as pure energy, teas, tinctures and vibrational essences.
With the aid of Shamanic journeying and trance work we will identify our main Animal ally or Power animal.
The 3rd rite of the Munay Ki will be given.
At this time of year when the veil is it thin there is a wonderful opportunity for us to meet with our Ancestors.
We will be re-connecting to those who have gone before and asking for their support on our journey.
We will learn the art of soul retrieval and the practice of past life regression and when to use it.
The 4th rite of the Munay Ki will be given.
You will create, decorate and empower your own magical drum and beater. Journey to discover the Spirit and name of your drum. Honour, name and celebrate its creation with a Fire Ceremony. An enjoyable, sociable creative weekend for all. No previous creative skills required. All materials provided.
‘Much of the Art of Drum Making cannot be spoken-it is about tapping into our creative centres, contacting Spirit and bringing into being what we are given. Drums are a Shamans /Shamankas most important tool. When he/she makes their own it is a birthing process-a moment of conception; when the seed of the idea meets materials gifted by Mother Earth. A gestation- as the process unfolds. A birth as the drum is completed and then honoured and named in Ceremony. Their drum becomes their companion, their most powerful ally and teacher. If cared for it will mature and grow old with them. When the Shaman/Shamanka walks the Rainbow Bridge the Drum Spirit will go with them, keeping rhythm for the next dance.’ I feel that this is true. The Drum Spirits are really needed now. They beat for the healing of Mother Earth-they beat for our own illumination-they beat for joy and sorrow-they beat for celebration and ceremony-they beat for cleansing and clearing-they beat for us.
We will be seeking our hidden inner child and reuniting him/her with our healed masculine/feminine.
We will learn about energy extraction and how to deal with inappropriate energies and entities.
The 5th rite of the Munay Ki will be given. The Munay Ki are the Nine Gateways to the mystical path of the Q’uero (Inkas) The Munay Ki Rites have the ability to transform human consciousness and to assist us on a progressive path in our lifetime.
This is the final weekend of the 1st year and is a time of cleansing and initiation in preparation for the next phase in our Shamanic development.
We will be using different deep cleansing techniques for the body and soul. Learning to understand ourselves and how we react to challenges.
We are getting ready to step up and reclaim our power. During ceremony you will receive your Medicine name. The 6th rite of the Munay Ki will be given (Wisdomkeeper’s Rites).
There will be 5 essential weekend workshops, with case studies and homework in between. Plus options of further workshops to assist your personal and professional growth.

What People Are Saying
“I have worked with Seersha both recieving her healing, partaking in many workshops and as an apprentice. She has a gift of seeing the beauty and talents in other people, she is able to draw out their talent and empower them on their path to healing and wholeness. I have found every moment I have spent with Seersha a joy – even if I am processing and feeling something darker – she holds you safely so you can work your way through to raise your vibration higher using her wisdom and skills as a teacher and healer.” Sorrell Robbins
Well, it changed my life in the best possible way. I now have a better sense of my own worth and my place in the scheme of things.
Seersha has a practical, no- nonsense approach to Shamanic work and is supportive to all students in her care. I say ”in her care” with much thought because that is what comes across from this deeply compassionate, wise woman.”
