Introduction to Shamanic Journeying   

DATE:   Sun, 10/29/17

TIME:  10am - 5pm

LOCATION:  Chicago Women's Health Center     1025 W. Sunnyside Ave #201

COST:  Early Bird Registration $85 until 10/21/17  -  $95 after 10/21/17

This is a one day course designed to teach you how to do a Shamanic Journey.  Shamanic  journeying is a very powerful technique for personal growth and healing.  Shamanism is an ancient form of spiritual healing, it is believed to be the oldest form of healing on the planet dating back approximately thirty thousand years. It has been found in many indigenous cultures in North and South America, Australia, New Zealand, Central and Northern Asia, Eastern and Northern Europe and Africa.  A shamanic practitioner is a healer who moves into altered states of consciousness to access different realities in the spirit world in order to bring back healing, information and power.   The word shaman means “one who sees in the dark,” and widely refers to those who are medicine women/men, healers and seers. Shamans never work alone, they always work in conjunction with the helping spirits who guide them in providing what is needed for healing. 

This introductory course will teach you how to do a Shamanic Journey for yourself and for others. It is the basic foundation course that is a pre-requisite for any other more advanced Shamanic studies, such as Ancestral Healing, Shamanic Divination, Power Animal Retrieval, Shamanic  Extraction, Soul Retrieval, etc.  In this workshop you will learn how to journey to different dimensions in non-ordinary reality such as the Lower World and Upper World; this is done by using percussive sound such as drumming and rattling. Within these other dimensions you will meet your helping spirits- this course will focus on meeting with a Power Animal and a Teacher in Spirit. The techniques that you learn in this course, as well as the teachers and guides that you will meet, will support you long after the workshop as you move forward on your spiritual path. The Shamanic Journey is a tool which supports all life goals and all forms of healing. Shamanism is the path of direct revelation – it is a way of directly accessing spiritual information to support your own healing and the healing of others. 

This course would be helpful to you if:

* You are looking for new self-care tools to stay grounded during stressful times

* You’re looking to try something different for your own personal healing

* You are seeking to deepen your own spiritual connection

* You would like to meet your Spirit Helpers and Allies, or deepen your already existing connection

* You are a practitioner or psychotherapist looking for new tools to further support your clients on their healing journey

* You work in a healing profession or social services and are looking for ways to recharge yourself to avoid burnout and feeling depleted

* You want to be part of a loving, supportive and safe spiritual community seeking to bring more love, light and kindness to their own lives and to the larger world

What to bring:

-  A drum or rattle – if you do not have a rattle, one will be provided for you in class

-  A blanket or pillow so that you can be comfortable lying on the floor to journey

-  Something to cover your eyes while journeying

-  A journal or notebook as well as a pen so you can write down the things that you experience. **Please note that this course is taught in an oral tradition, come prepared to take notes. 

-  A blessing altar will be set up for the class. You are welcome to bring a few stones or other small objects that you would like to be blessed by the Spirits (please be mindful of the size and quantity of the things that you bring as to allow enough space on the altar to accommodate everyone).  Participation in the blessing altar is not a requirement of the course. 

-  And most importantly, please bring an open heart and inquisitive, eager spirit! :)

CIRCLE OF CEREMONIES

It is with great love and joy in my heart that I introduce a new very sacred and special group called Circle of Ceremonies. Circle of Ceremonies will provide a bimonthly gathering (every other month) for people to come together to participate in sacred ceremonies from different spiritual and cultural traditions. Each gathering will be facilitated by a new person from a different spiritual or cultural background who would like to share a sacred ceremony with others. We come together to share in these beautiful traditions with each other for the pure love of ceremony, for the love of prayer, for the great love of community, and for the love and bliss of Divine Connection with the Creative Forces of the Universe and with each other. This group is open to anyone who would like to honor and share in the beautiful experience of sacred ceremony.

Circle of ceremonies will be free of charge to ceremony participants. We will, however, use this unique opportunity to collect donations and raise funds for a different charity organization at each of our gatherings. The charity organization will be selected by each ceremony facilitator, and will be selected to align with the spiritual or cultural tradition of that ceremony as a way of giving back to its people.

All ceremonies will take place at Tribe, A Healing Arts Community, located at 1819 W. Belmont Ave.

The remaining schedule for Circle of Ceremonies is as follows:

Sun, 11/19/17      6-8pm          Native American Cannunpa (Sacred Pipe) Ceremony Facilitated by Nicole Perez

The Cannunpa Ceremony is an ancient, powerful Native American sacred pipe ceremony that is used to carry the prayers of the people to the Creator or Great Spirit.  The pipe ceremony is a sacred ritual for connecting the physical and spiritual worlds – it is a link between the earth and the sky.  Ceremony participants gather together in sacred circle to pray for themselves, their loved ones, for the collective and for the planet.  In the ceremony the pipe is the prayers of the people in physical form.  There is currently a great deal of suffering and large scale tragedy happening at a global level, and there is a great need for collective unity and collective prayer at this time.  It is rare to have the opportunity to participate in a sacred Cannunpa Ceremony; it is an incredible blessing and a great honor to pray in this very sacred circle.     

There is no charge to participate in sacred ceremony, but donations will be collected to benefit the people of Puerto Rico.  The intention of this Cannunpa Ceremony is to raise funds to support the hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico, as well as to send prayers and loving energy for the well-being of all who have been affected by the recent hurricanes.

Please know that the Cannunpa Ceremony involves the use of tobacco smoke, as well as the burning of sacred herbs such as sage, sweetgrass, and cedar. It is not a mandatory part of the ceremony to smoke the sacred pipe, but I want to be mindful of letting participants know that there will be smoke from the tobacco and sacred herbs present in the room. 

RSVP is required in advance for participation in Circle of Ceremonies. Space may be limited for some of the ceremonies depending on what is involved, and we will need to be able to prepare our circle for the appropriate number of participants. As a matter of honoring and respecting these ceremonies, I ask that you please arrive on time for ceremony, and that you please honor your RSVP. If you have RSVP’d and need to cancel, please notify me as soon as possible so that we may plan accordingly. Contact Nicole to confirm your attendance at: 773-366-2001 or reikirivers@gmail.com.

From my heart to your heart, I look forward to sharing this blessed, beautiful and sacred time in circle with you.

This course will teach you some of the basic healing properties of some of the most commonly used stones for healing and manifestation.  In addition, you will learn:

·         How to select the appropriate crystal(s) for your work   

·         How to differentiate between the different formations of crystals along with their main uses

·         Techniques for cleansing crystals

·         Techniques for programming crystals

Reiki Training ~ Become a Reiki 1,2,3 Practitioner! 

While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion.  It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki.  Reiki is an amazingly simple yet powerful technique that anyone can learn.  The ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense, but is transferred to the student during a Reiki class.  This ability is passed on during an "attunement" given by a Reiki Master, this attunement allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of "Life Force Energy" to improve one's health and enhance one's quality of life.  The Divine love and light of Reiki is channeled through individuals who receive an attunement to the Reiki lineage and energies. 

Using Reiki is not dependent on one's intellectual capacity or spiritual development, and is therefore available to everyone.  The ancient and sacred healing art of Reiki has been successfully taught to thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds.

*NOTE: The Reiki 1,2,3 Practitioner course is a practitioner level training, not a Reiki Master course. It is called Reiki 1,2,3 Practitioner because this training contains more information than is taught in the traditional Reiki first and second degree trainings.  For example, two additional Reiki symbols are included in this training, and elements of pranic healing are also taught within this course as well.  Completion of this course makes you a certified Reiki Practitioner.  Classes for this training are spread out over several weeks, typically involving a total of three class sessions.  Registration or confirmation of attendance in advance is required for participation in this course in order to ensure that training materials are prepared for you.

Reiki Trainings are conducted in groups as well as one-on-one.  Contact Reiki Rivers with any questions about Reiki training, to request a one on one training, or to inquire about dates of upcoming classes.
