Shamanic Workshops

Spirit Medicine Workshop Series

For tens of thousands of years, shamans have used visioning techniques to access the spiritual realms for the purpose of healing and gathering information. Using a specific drumbeat as a catalyst, the ability to vision in this way is not only easy and safe, but quite accessible to those new to shamanic training: most people have success with their first attempt!

The Spirit Medicine Workshop Series is designed for anyone with an interest in shamanism, and is ideal for both the novice and those with a rich shamanic history and established journeying practice. Handcrafted by Wendy herself, these workshops will teach you how to transport to transpersonal realms, known as the dreamtime, and connect you with your own personal helping spirits. If you’re looking for encouragement or guidance in shamanic journeying, whether it’s life enrichment, connection with your personal power, or even becoming your own shaman, this workshop series

Workshops are typically offered in central Vermont in the spring and fall.

Shamanic Protection for Chaotic Times

If you’re finding it more and more difficult to manage the tumultuous nature of life on planet Earth, this workshop is for you!

  • Learn to access the Dreamtime Realm of Nature Spirits
  • Discover what Elemental Spirit or Spirits will align with you to create a personal boundary
  • Begin the process of developing a relationship with your new personal boundary

Sometimes seen as a harbinger of bad tidings, the Owl has unfortunately gotten a bum rap. In actuality, the owl is a powerful spirit animal capable of seeing in the dark – a handy skill to have.

One of the biggest challenges humans face, as we strive to evolve, is deception . . . how we deceive each other and how we deceive ourselves.

In this unique experiential shamanic workshop, you’ll work with the Spirit of the Owl in order to begin the process of:

  • Learning how to differentiate between the energy of Deception and the energy of Truth
  • With the ultimate goal of illuminating and transforming self-deception

Please join Wendy for an afternoon of learning how to see in the dark! All levels of experience welcome.
