THE SHAMANS’ WORLD. June 2nd-9th 2018 PORTUGAL
THE SHAMAN’S WORLD — Medicine wheel maps of our relationship to the cosmos and to each other.
With Leo Rutherford, MA Holistic Psychology, Shamanic Practitioner for 30+ years.
When we go somewhere new, the first thing we usually do is check a map to help in plotting our course. But have you ever had a map of life? I didn’t until I discovered the Medicine Wheel – and what a difference it has made!
The Medicine Wheel is a series of interlocking maps of life and shows us the forces that operate on us from all directions. The wheels are circles of power and knowledge, ways of understanding life and its cyclical and circular nature. They teach of our connection to all things and show our way to Centre, our way home. Our ancient ancestors saw the world in terms of circles and cycles and so it was natural that they should teach of life in this manner.
‘Medicine’ means vital force, it is anything which brings personal power, power over our self, the ability to respond to and to consciously co-create our life. The Medicine Wheel is not a belief system, It guides us to steer a heart-full path through life’s many challenges and vicissitudes.
This workshop will give you new ways to understand your self and your life and new ways to fully identify and deal with the challenges that life sends you. It will include working with the directions of the wheel, shamanic drum journeys, ceremonies, trance-dance and other exercises which will enable you to feel into the messages you receive from the wheel and how they relate to you. It will open the door to a much greater sense of personal empowerment and possibility.
Comments from participants: “So, I wanted to add how physically different I feel since the dance. I’ve got my Shamanic eyes back in – everything is sharper, brighter & clearer.”
“…. It is now flowing and showing itself, it felt like I went into the Mother, deep, asked for help to circumnavigate the present and its challenges. I feel blessed and honoured to have such company and teaching.”
“Wow! What a difference 2 days can make. So much gratitude for the Trance Dance, Leo. Major shifts and cutting of seriously stuck, unwanted cords. I’ve returned with my mojo fully back intact, feeling ‘enough’ & raring to go – whoopeeee!”
