TAUGHT BY DORY COTE AND NANCY BOWER, TEACHING ASSOCIATE
This is a comprehensive immersion in the practice of shamanism for students who desire to become practitioners and/or for those who want to dive deeply into their own spiritual evolution.
2019 Apprenticeship (likely the last one I will teach) includes 15 residential days of instruction and experience over a one-year period. We will come together in sacred circle for three multi-day residential sessions. See dates and times below.
This course is opened to individuals who have not had prior experience in a shamanic circle as well as students who have had some instruction and experience and desire to go deeper and/or for students who desire to renew their practice. We will begin with a one-day basic instruction in the art of the shamanic journey followed by a rapid progression into the deeper experiences of shamanism.
