Foundational Shamanism Trainings

Remember how to live in ceremony, igniting your passions, connecting with inner wisdom to support your life’s journey . . .

The Heart Foundations of Shamanism retreat series offers one retreat each season, open to beginners and experienced shamanic practitioners alike.  Each seasonal gathering has a different theme & intention, and will cover different aspects of building a foundation of heart-centered living.

The theme of each retreat is co-created with participants through a process we call The Way of the Circle.  Participants tap into their dreams, ancestral wisdom, and helping spirits to co-create ceremony and go deeper into rediscovering their greatest teacher and healer within.  This allows us each to receive a unique learning experience that meets our individual needs.

“If shamanism is calling to you, it is not an invitation that you will be able to decline. It calls like wild geese and it is the wildness within you that will answer.”

~ Trae Robinson, Circle Member

“I am more ME than I have ever been, and I am becoming more and more me all the time now. When we heal our hearts, we can share our inner gifts with the world.”

– Jane Large, Circle Member
