The Power of Dynamic Meditation, Self-Study

This workshop is an introduction and practice with a shamanic meditative visualization technique that honours and engages your thinking mind as an ally on the journey.

Are you called to explore the dimensions of meditation and spirituality?
Are you feeling disconnected or alienated from nature or your own self?
Are you looking for a better connection with a personal sense of meaning?
The Dynamic Meditation course is an introduction to a path of deep connection.

One of the first skills to be learned on almost all spiritual paths is being able to enter an altered state of consciousness. On a shamanic path this is a state of awareness of energies, spirits, and worlds that transcends three-dimensional limitations. In this workshop, you learn to move into this state quickly and easily using your breathing as the prompt. You engage powerfully with the worlds both within and beyond the senses. The goal is not to set the physical world aside, as would be the goal in a passive meditation, but to interact with it deeply, in all its power and beauty. This is the method used by shamans through time, everywhere in the world.

During the workshop you will experience for yourself
• The value and power of ceremony
• Progressive relaxation
• A spiritual sequence for the release of pain
• Guided meditations beyond the physical
• A personal place of spiritual safety and power
• Protection in the spirit world
• Practical ideas that you can apply every day for a better, more expansive life.

Through this practice you will also experience other well-known benefits of meditation: greater mental clarity, serenity, improved peace of mind, a sense of well-being and control in life, and many physical benefits such as better rest, lower blood pressure, and a stronger immune system.

This workshop is to be done as an audio workshop, on your own time. The audio is an edited recording of a live session of the workshop, with commentary added to make the process easy to follow. It includes much of the best aspects of the discussions, feedback, and questions. The atmosphere of the workshop is captured in an engaging and positive way.

Cost: $30.

Use this Registration form and give the Program Name as “Dynamic Meditation, Self-Study.” When your payment is complete, I will send you the link and other information for the course.

The foundation of these teachings is a nature-based shamanic path. I am grateful to those who have been guided by spirit and their own love to preserve and share these ways with those of us who yearn for deeper connection with the world around us.

Spirit Travel and Self-Healing — Self-Study

This workshop is learning and practice with shamanic techniques for travelling outside the body in spirit, and utilizing energy for healing one’s own self.

One of the fascinating skills of a shamanic path is to move spiritually out of the physical body and travel to other locations to observe and learn. In the first part of this workshop, you learn to do this as an extension of the skills learned in Dynamic Meditation.

In the second part of the workshop you learn the first places of power of this path, and you discover and develop the ability to heal your own self, using your own energy.

During the workshop you will experience for yourself
• Moving easily out of your body in a meditative state
• Travelling in spirit to a chosen location near your physical body
• The power available even in the beginning levels of this path
• A place where you can use nonphysical energy to heal your own self.
