Learn Shamanic Journeying: Level 1 with Tracy Crosby
Since 2012, New Sun Energy Works has presented classes, ceremonies, healing sessions and information in the ancient practice of shamanic living. Join us in January and start the year off right by learning to dream your world into being!
“Learn Shamanic Journeying: Level 1” is the original beginner’s class as developed and taught by Tracy Crosby to hundreds of Mississippians. You need only your interest, and open mind and open heart to reap a wealth of information and understanding at this one-day event.
ABOUT THE CLASS
The Shamanic Journey has been used for thousands of years as a method to explore the subconscious and dreamtime worlds. Level 1 is an introduction to the origins, terminology and basic techniques of this visionary practice, bringing participants the knowledge and skills needed to use the shamanic journey anytime for personal reflection and healing.
By using the sound of the drum, participants are guided through the hidden universes discussed in myth and legend, exploring and awakening connections to Nature, inner guidance, and paths to self-development.
The practice of drumming and journeying is used in many ways: for personal healing and balance, for answers to questions, for connections and messages to assist growth and balance in life, and for pure enjoyment.
In addition to class instruction, you’ll receive a small workbook with information that you can use to practice and enjoy journeying long after you leave the class.
The class size is limited to allow comfort in the room. Register now to assure your place. Upon registration, you will receive information about what to bring to the class and other instructions.
(Note: This class involves sitting and lying on the floor for traditional journeying practices. Please contact me before registering if you are unable to work in this way, let’s see if we can accommodate you!).
