Classical Shamanism and Nature: The Visible Face of Spirit

with Simon Buxton

Shamans have always know that ‘everything that is, is alive’, and that nature is the visible face of spirit. On this residential course taking place at The Sacred Trust Teaching Centre the specific focus of the work will be working with nature spirits and the spirits of nature, as a source of healing power, personal and planetary healing. This is an opportunity to connect with nature and the Spirits and discover more about how to work together and where we can begin to hear the silent knowledge of the Earth and the spirits that animate her.

Classical Shamanic Extraction Training

with Simon Buxton

This is an advanced shamanic healing course for practitioners and healers interested in being tutored in 
classic shamanic extraction methodologies. Extraction is a shamanic healing technique for removing harmful energy intrusions from a patient’s body which typically cause weakness, malaise, localised pain or discomfort, illness or death, depending on the type of energy intrusion and how long it has been in the patients body. These misplaced energies can be removed through sucking out the intrusions or by using ‘spirit hands’ to pull the intrusions out, and this weekend training explores in detail how to locate, identify and remove these object intrusions in a fashion that is safe for both the practitioner and the patient alike.

Classical Shamanic Psychopomp Training: Death, Dying & Departure

with Simon Buxton

Within shamanism death is understood as a passage and a crossing over to the Land of the Dead and a return to the ancestors or to source and serving the healing in the dying process is part of serving the healing in life One of the distinguishing features of shamanism is that shamans not only help the living, but also the dying and the deceased. As the soul guide or psychopomp, the shaman transports the souls of the dead home, assuring that soul’s safe and complete journey through the death process. The shaman also functions as a psychopomp for souls who, though dead for a long time, have not completed their passage to the Land of the Dead. On this course you will be trained in how to prepare the dying for the journey ahead and to escort the soul when its time on earth is done.

Classical Shamanic Soul Retrieval Training

with Simon Buxton

During this five-day intensive course participants will be trained with the issues of soul loss and retrieval from a shamanic perspective. We shall learn how soul loss occurs and will experientially learn how to find or track a soul and bring it back to a person. We shall explore how this can be effective in working with survivors of abuse, accidents, people who have undergone surgery and other emotional and physical traumas, as well as people dealing with such issues as alcoholism and drug abuse. According to shamanic traditions, when soul-loss occurs, a part of the persons very essence escapes in order to survive the experience. The problem is that for most people these parts do not return, leaving feelings of disassociation from life, from the body and from relationships. Soul loss keeps the person from feeling their connection with the Earth and the joy She has to offer and soul retrieval is a set of primal yet profound techniques to heal and overcome this problem.

As well as working with techniques and practices regarding soul retrieval, the course will also focus on life after soul retrieval — how we create healthier lives for ourselves and others after the healing has taken place. This will be accomplished through shamanic journey, ritual and ceremony.

During this five-day intensive course each participant will act as a shaman to learn the techniques and they will also have the opportunity to have the lost parts of themselves retrieved. This training is specifically designed for those people who wish to deepen their shamanic work and bring shamanic healing work into their practice with others.
