more information about this event
Shamanism is a branch of Animism (from the Latin ‘anima’ meaning: ‘breath, life, soul’). Animism was a term that came to be used in the 1860s and 1870’s to describe the way in which indigenous people experienced reality.
People the world over, from the Aboriginals to the Inuit, Native Americans to the Siberians, all experienced life in a way that recognized the distinct spiritual essence in all things. Not just in humans but also in animals, plants, rocks, mountains, rivers and oceans.
Everything was alive and everything was sacred.
Throughout its long and varied history, shamanism has taken many forms, appropriate to the culture it has found itself in.
Therapeutic Shamanism combines the principles of shamanic work with those of modern counselling and psychotherapy. It provides an easily learnt tool kit of techniques and methods that are profoundly useful for personal healing, help with life issues, raising self-awareness, personal and spiritual development, and much more.
This experiential course covers the basics of shamanic practice. Participants will be shown simple yet profound techniques to enter shamanic reality to reconnect to their own spirituality. No prior experience is necessary. The course is taught in a grounded way and rooted in personal experience. The day includes:
Times are 10am till 4.30pm. Prior booking is essential. Attendance on this course enables one to apply for the foundation courses.
Christine Holt is a qualified Practitioner in Therapeutic Shamanism.
She is one of the foundation teachers for the Three Ravens College of Therapeutic Shamanism.
For the last 30 years Christine has worked in the public sector, mainly in youth and community work, though more recently she has specialised in museum and heritage projects and advocating on behalf of children in care.

MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THIS EVENT
This workshop explores the psychological experience of menopause, offering you a cyclical understanding that inspires hope and trust that you’re waking up, not breaking down.
Wouldn’t it be great to feel validated in your experience of menopause?
To feel that you are not navigating this alone?
To have an embodied sense of ‘the change’ being a change for the better?
To have permission to let go?
Or maybe just to be kind to yourself?
Menopause is perceived as a terrible event to be feared and many of us feel that we’re losing the plot. In fact it is a transformational process that asks us to let go of what no longer serves us and reclaim our pleasures and passions as our right.
If we allow ourselves to go inward and pay attention to the arc of our lives so far, treating ourselves with kindness, the transition can become a process of understanding, healing and ultimately empowerment.
We find that saying yes to ourselves can deliver us into a post-menopausal second spring where we can finally become the girl we always longed to be; able to follow our joy and at last really not care what others think of us.
This retreat day will:
What does the day involve?
Exploring how themes from our birth and our menarche are playing out in the menopause transition
A guided visualisation to bring healing to the girl we were Guided ‘Womb Love’, a self-care belly massage and Womb Yoga to soothe and connect with your centre.
A Medicine Circle to feel how the seasons of your life shift through to menopause and into the Second Spring of post-menopause.
A Medicine Circle to find resources and understand each phase of menopause
Time to digest and ground the wisdom into your everyday life
About Medicine Circles
Medicine Circles are an embodied, energy medicine process that allows you to safely look beneath the surface at the patterns that direct you. Akin to a Shamanic journey, you’ll find new ‘soul medicine’ that can be grounded into your everyday self-care.
The Medicine Circles initiate subtle shifts in your awareness and behaviour as the healing effect of the cycle emerges in your life. Rather like constellation work, you’ll often find changes happening all by themselves, though we will ground your discoveries by identifying your next steps.
About Womb Love
Womb Love is a unique combination of embodied movement inspired by Womb Yoga, self-care belly massage and guided visualisation. It combines the physical benefits of increased circulation, release and lymph flow to your womb space and belly, with a deep connection to your innate wisdom by embodied listening. As a side benefit, you’re also learning the ultimate in daily self-care.
Who is this workshop for?
This workshop is for women interested in personal growth, who are experiencing menopause or expecting it soon and would like to prepare themselves for it.
