Shamanic initiation involves a spirit experience outside the bounds of what is familiar and comfortable, and in the most advanced initiations, this happens in the Middle World with much play between the ordinary and non-ordinary realms.
Gathering our courage and trust we voluntarily face our fears. These initiations activate our deepest resources and connection to the compassionate spirits, clearing obstacles from our lives and fundamentally changing what we know to be possible. Initiation is a critical part of walking the path of the shaman, whether we are just starting out, or well on the way.
The following elemental initiation intensives are jointly developed by Peter Clark and Kristine Peeler. See descriptions and links below for more details. The schedule for each can be found in the details, but in general, we cycle through the elements, revisiting each periodically. Water and Air in 2020!
