Portals Workshops! A series of 9 workshops introducing Animal Emissaries. No pre-requisites required. Hosted by Elaine, and taught by Marv and Shanon of Kimmapii Spirit Energies School of Shamanism
For many of us Empaths, we tend to take what happens to us very personally, and that in turn leads to us being serious and sometimes being melancholy. Learning how to not take life so seriously becomes a life skill and a life line. We Empaths can identify with being sad because we tend to focus on what is lacking in our lives. On the one hand this is helpful because we know exactly what we want to fix and what we would like to create. On the other hand, being in that emotional state much of the time can be hard on our systems, which in turn robs us of our vitality.
Imagine learning simple tools that involve both body movements and music that would allow you to shift out of that state and into a new state at will whenever you needed an extra boost. This is what these Portals workshops offer–tangible tools that shift us immediately and experientially into the mythic and out of the emotional. Imagine being able to shift into the sweetness of life, the fun of life, and maybe experience some mischievousness as well. Coyote is ready and willing, as your ally, to offer you this skill.
The wonderful aspect about these Portals workshops is that there are no pre-requisities, they can be taken in any order, and they stand alone. In contrast, many series need to be taken in order, and a medicine wheel needs to be completed or else we can get “stuck” in one direction. The tools you learn in the Portals workshop are yours for life, to use and deepen as you wish.
If you have been interested in shamanic training, but are hesitant to commit to a program, this is an excellent way to see if this work is right for you. If you are an experienced shaman and interested in learning from a new tradition, Marv and Shanon are two of the few who were given permission by the elders to teach in the Blackfoot Tradition. They have been teaching and in practice for decades; you will be in good hands.
