Heart Foundational Shamanism Trainings
What would it be like to come home to the remembering of how to live in ceremony, nourishing and growing the passions that give you great fulfillment, as you connect with inner wisdom that is guiding your life’s purposeful journey ?
The Heart Foundations of Shamanism series offers one gathering each season, open to people of all experience levels on their spiritual paths. Each seasonal gathering has a guiding theme & inspiration, exploring different aspects of building a strong and sustainable foundation of heart-centered living.
The gathering’s theme is co-created with participants through a process we call the Way of the Circle. Participants tap into their intuition, unique gifts, soul yearnings, day and nighttime dreams, ancestral wisdom, and helping spirits to co-create living ceremony, going deeper into rediscovering their greatest teacher and healer within. This allows us each to receive a magical learning experience that meets our individual needs while being of service to the greater circle. Through the heart’s gateway within, we are able to respond with our innate gifts and abilities, fulfilling the greatest needs we see in the world around us.

“The Heart Foundations are vehicles for change. Within the safe and supportive structure of the Way of the Circle, we realize our inter-connectedness, travelling deep within to retrieve the gifts we came into this world to share. Being seen, feeling heard, inspiring each other, and honouring one another’s values, we heal the root cause of isolation and scarcity. Coming together we undergo a joyous alchemical process, transmuting the dream of fear, divisiveness and disharmony into the dream of Love, Unity, and Peace. Our survival as a human species depends on us remembering ancient wisdom, and our connection to the Spirit that lives in all things.” ~ Martha Lucier, Co-Founder

“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.”

Some words from past attendees :
- "I had a wonderful weekend at the Edge, participating in ceremony with others and enjoying the natural beauty around us. Staff made me feel at home and well taken care of, and the other participants were lovely. I would highly recommend the Edge to anyone looking for a meaningful and rejuvenating experience in nature!"

- "The activities shift with the in-the-moment needs of the participants, with our questions, with our reflections, and with the facilitators’ observations of what is going on in the physical and non-physical realities. It won’t be a textbook experience. It will be YOUR experience, as you examine your stories, the chapters of your life, and the stories of your ancestors that are found within your own being . . ."

- "Heart Flow of Shamanism was without a doubt the most deeply extraordinary experience that I've ever had which provided me with clarity and assurance that nature knows the way, when we are truly connected within ourselves and are brave and willing -- deep down we know the way, and that when we hold a dream within a community we can co-create the way. The way to love, to peace, to acceptance, to balance, to harmony, to beauty --- I'm on my way."

- "I've been into Recovery/Healing, Peace-searching, for most of my life. I've done Step groups, Religion, self help gurus, Rehab centers, doctors, therapists and Adrenalin rushes. At the 'Edge' and the Shamanism Training program, I was taught to tap into Humanity's ageless deep well of Spirituality like never before. Its been a week since the Training and I am more balanced and content then ever. . ."
