Every Step A Prayer: Shamanic Tools for Wholing and Healing

ONLINE, Eight-Week Series, Meets Thursday Evenings on Zoom

Starting January 21, 2021

Taught by Tracey Forest

and Jonah Ruh Roberts

8 sessions, January 21- March 11
6:30 pm – 9:00 pm EST Thursdays

This eight-week program is for shamanic practitioners who have completed ESAP Level One, or have had at least six months of Seeing with the Heart or comparable shamanic training. In this circle we will go deeper with the techniques and practices of core shamanism so that you become more experienced in walking within the mystery of life all around us. By coming more deeply into relationship with the spirits of the land, your personal guides including animal teachers, ascended ones, ancestors and future ones, you become practiced at speaking the language of soul.
In addition to continuing journeys to access your mythos – the story and imagery of your soul- we will be working quite a bit in the middle world- connecting to the spirits of the land, working compassionately with death and dying and learning to clear energy and entities from places through psychopomp work. In addition, you will learn the basics about soul loss and creating ceremonies to reclaim soul parts you have loss and give back to others soul parts you have been holding on to.
Core shamanism is cross-cultural and uses only the universal techniques that have been practiced around the globe since pre-patriarchal times. We neither teach nor make claim to any culture-specific methods–only those that underlie all shamanic traditions in common. Shamanism has been called by many names in the cultures that work with spirits, the drum, and the animas of all things. It is a term now recognizable for the work it encompasses, and we honor the many cultures, including our own, whose roots wove these practices into daily community life since human time began.

In this program, you will:

* Connect more deeply with power animals, ancestors and teachers for guidance and healing.
* Connect more deeply with the Earth and come into relationship with the Spirits of the Land.
* Access more fully your own Wild Self.
* Become practiced at creating ceremonies to honor, heal & release.
* Practice partner journeying and basic healing techniques.
* Work more deeply with psychopomp techniques -working compassionately with those who have died or are dying.
* Learn to clear energy and entities from places.
* Learn about soul loss and reclaiming soul parts you have given away.

Tracey Forest “Key Turner”

Tracey is passionate about helping others step through the doorway into the mystical and the mythical, the sacred and the sublime, the earthy and the erotic, the dark depths and high heights. She is a fearless and compassionate facilitator who has “been to the mountain” and descended into the abyss to lament for the earth, to celebrate the beauty and pain and who knows the rich gifts that lie in the dark to be mined. She stands in the portal, holding a lantern, singing ancient songs, dangling a key, inviting you to step through into the vast landscape of your Soul.

Co-founding Director of Spirit Hollow, Tracey is a shamanic healer and teacher, yoga teacher and singer of soul-stirring songs.  A graduate of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies’ Three-Year Program in Advanced Shamanism and Shamanic Healing, she studied directly with Dr. Michael Harner.  For almost 30 years, Tracey has been teaching and guiding others, through Seeing with the Heart: An Apprenticeship in Core Shamanism, transformational programs for kids and women, and Wild Women Vision Quests.  She is currently in the Soulcraft Apprenticeship and Initiation Program (SAIP) with Bill Plotkin and the Animas Valley Institute learning to be Soul Initiation Guide and cultivating more tools to assist in the Wholing and Healing of this broken, beautiful world.
