Compassionate Depossession is a body of work pioneered by the shamanic teacher and Sacred Trust faculty member Betsy Bergstrom and further developed by Simon Buxton. Betsy Bergstrom has embarked upon a period of sabbatical and has requested that Simon Buxton teach this body of work on The Sacred Trust curriculum of courses during her exeat. Heart-centered compassionate depossession 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 & Simon have replaced what have historically been two separate courses (basic and advanced depossession) into this one single potent training.
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:
