SHAMANIC HEALING AND CEREMONY
Shamanism is humanity's most ancient healing practice and can be used as tool to work with physical, spiritual and mental illness and any matter of the "unseen world". In the language of the Tungus people (modern-day Tuva, in central Asia), the word shaman means "to know" or "to see in the dark" , and refers to the ability of the shaman to access spiritual and healing powers beyond the physical world. Shamans work with spiritual guides and teachers, both in this reality and non-ordinary reality. There are many forms of Shamanism as each Shaman's healing methodology is shaped by the culture and set of beliefs from which it stems. We offer both traditional Native American Shamanic healing as well as Shamanic healings informed by the Path of Pollen. We also offer shamanic blessing ceremonies including weddings and house and land clearings.
PATH OF POLLEN SHAMANIC HEALINGS
The Path of Pollen is an indefinitely ancient and enigmatic vein of Shamanism. This gynocentric tradition that has been passed from "mouth to ear" and has been largely held in secret since the rise of Patriarchy.
In the words of Simon Buxton (author of The Shamanic Way of the Bee and teacher of the tradition), "The Path of Pollen is a shamanic tradition that works with humanity’s most ancient ally, the honeybee, not just as a metaphor, but as a vibrant, pragmatic and challenging spiritual path, grounded in the Earth but anchored to the heavens. (...)The Path of Pollen holds a focus of work on what we call ‘endocrine alchemy’, which is a rejuvenative programme that draws upon the intelligence and wisdom of the body-vessel and stimulates the interior stars and hidden veins within the subtle-body, liberating and circulating (bodily) elixirs known as ‘nektars’ which are utilised for shamanic practices including healing, visioning, shamanic flight and the largely lost art of shape-shifting."
Healing sessions take place in a ceremonial setting where the practitioner works "beyond the veil" as she seeks to restore balance and vitality to her client. Sessions may include movement, sound, hands on work, oracular readings as well as ritual prescriptions.
