Compassionate Depossession & Shamanic Curse Unravelling

Compassionate Depossession and Curse Unravelling are two bodies of work pioneered by the shamanic teacher and Sacred Trust faculty member Betsy Bergstrom. Over the last decade Betsy has been teaching the methods of curse unravelling and praxes of heart-centered compassionate depossession, which is a humane therapy that benefits both the client and the attached possessing being, even if that being or beings are reluctant to leave their host. Betsy Bergstrom has embarked upon a period of sabbatical and has requested that the founder of The Sacred Trust – Simon Buxton – teach this body of work on The Sacred Trust curriculum of courses during her exeat. Betsy & Simon have replaced what have historically been two separate courses (basic and advanced depossession) into one single potent training, together with a separate course exploring the art of Shamanic Curse Unravelling.

Compassionate Depossession Training

with Simon Buxton

This training covers both basic, intermediate and advanced aspects of compassionate depossession with a view to working in client-practitioner relationship. It is designed for serious shamanic practitioners and health professionals who are finding the need for skills in depossession and wishing to engage in this work with a compassionate approach. The work will include extensive review, demonstrations and practical experience and will focus on spirit possession by beings that are both human, transhuman, ex-human and non human: thought forms & obsessions, elemental beings, animal spirits, beings from other dimensions or systems, ‘dark’ forces or archetypes often perceived as ‘evil’.

We shall be exploring the following themes in detail, in both theory and practice:

  • Meeting and merging with specific protector spirits and other members of the depossession practitioners entourage used in compassionate depossession work.
  • Dealing with high magnitude dark spirits and powerful multi-locational negative beings.
  • Protocols for working with complex cases of possession including multiple possession, sorcery and ancestral patterns.
  • Power Stacking: simultaneous multiple mergings with allies and tutelary kin including merging with our divine, True Self which affords us a unique protection.
  • Strategies and protocols to communicate with possessing spirits and move them to a place of resolution, including those spirits who refuse to leave the host or are non-copoerative in other ways.
  • How to deal with the random intrusions of spirits seeking to transition.
  • The vital application of quartz crystals in the context of depossession work
  • The important differences and roles that exist between controlled and uncontrolled possessions, voluntary and involuntary possession.
  • Healing the residual tears in the luminous field left after depossession is completed and helping ourselves and our clients to become sovereign, and remain that way
  • The undertaking of post-depossession healing work.
  • Tools to remain neutral, objective, clear in accomplishing this profound work and methods to empower the work space and home to be more powerfully protected
  • If time allows there will also be an introduction to the art of curse unraveling

 

Please note:  All participants must be competent in shamanic journey work.

Shamanic Curse Unravelling

with Simon Buxton

The training of a sorcerer and a shaman are nearly identical, and it is the how and the why that training is used that differs. On this new workshop, created by Betsy Bergstrom and Simon Buxton we shall be exploring the theme of sorcery with a particular emphasis on the mysterious phenomena of curses and the means to deconstruct and unravel them. A curse is classically described as any expressed intention or wish that some form of adversity or misfortune will befall or attach to some other being, object or place. Curses may be intentional or unintentional, tended or untended, and in some cases can continue to effectively operate over many generations, especially those that may have been created by freelance religious professionals who would have historically be employed to execute this work.

We shall be looking at the science and art of curse creation, how they have been used across time and cultures to gain leverage in the Middle World, and will be seeking to engage in diagnosing and unravelling a number of different types of curse, including self curses, family curses, generational, ancestral and lineage curses, object and place curses and corporate curses. The work involves learning to establish safe protocols and align with power-filled, compassionate allies for protection and effectiveness in what can potentially be a dangerous landscape to move upon, leading towards remarkably effective techniques for deconstructing both curses and thought forms that continue to have power over peoples lives.
