Every healing system needs accurate methods to diagnose illness or imbalance. The most ancient of all healing traditions is shamanism. Shamans and healers the world over have for millennia trained to be able to ‘see’ into their patients’ physical, emotional and energy bodies, to observe them and then decide the best way to bring about healing. They do this by journeying in “non-ordinary reality” to obtain information about the causes and cures of their clients’ conditions from the spirit world. In this intensive workshop, we will focus on mastering some of shamanism’s diagnostic techniques.
This workshop will include learning how to: access and develop connections with a range of spirit helpers, such as power animals, inner teachers, and guides, scan and perceive the “three bodies”, develop intuitive hands, “read” the flames of candles, read an egg as it floats in a glass of water, use stones for divination, and more.
We will have the opportunity to practice hands-on with our fellow participants. We will leave this workshop ready to begin using these ancient tools and techniques on ourselves, our family and friends, or, for those of us in a healing profession, with our clients.
Introduction to Shamanic Journeying - Power Animals -
Learn how to retrieve and develop deep connections with a range of spirit helpers, such as power animals, inner teachers, and nature guides, who can help and guide you in your diagnostic and healing missions.
Full Body Hand Scanning and Body Energy Gazing -
These are lay-of- hands and energy gazing techniques used to identify energy blockages in the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies. They help indicate the specific body areas and organs by sensing temperature fluctuations– hot and cold–that need special attention and healing due to emotional and physical traumas.
Candle Flame and Egg Diagnostic Reading -
A staple practice by the Yachaks of the Ecuadorian High Andes, it aids in finding out the general condition of the client and the root causes of their physical, emotional and spiritual health, or sickness. You will learn how to apply the candle on the client's body, the art of interpretation and meaning of each of the colour areas within the flame, what the shapes of the wax and flame mean, and the most importantly the wick positions and conditions. You will learn how to prepare and work with the egg on the client’s body, decipher the egg’s consistency, blemishes, white filament structures, and its position in the glass, and how it all relates to the person's life event and conditions and physical and emotional health. (Please bring a clear glass and 4 brown eggs)
Stone Divination - Participants will be able to learn to see the past and future of their clients by observing the marking on the stones and deciphering the meanings of what they see. (Please bring a simple large stone - Orange fruit size-no crystals or fancy precious stones).
Itzhak Beery is a leading international shamanic teacher, healer, speaker, community activist and author of three Amazon bestseller books. For over 22 years he has bridged the spiritual and practical wisdom his indigenous teachers entrusted in him with a powerful contemporary approach relevant to our stressful and unbalanced modern times. Itzhak apprenticed with Don José Joaquin Pineda a well-known fifth generation Ecuadorian Quechua Yachak (shaman) from the village of Iluman, who initiated him into the Sacred 24 Yachaks Circle of Imbabura. He was also initiated by Shoré, an Amazonian Kanamari Pajè (shaman) on the banks of the Rio Negro. Itzhak studied and assisted for 12 years with Ipupiara Makunaiman (Dr. Bernardo Peixoto) a Brazilian Pajé from the Ure-eu-wau-wau tribe and his Peruvian curandera wife. Additionally, Itzhak studied with elders and shamans in North and South America, Greenland, Siberia and Africa. Some of his contemporary teachers are Michael Harner, John Perkins, Hank Wesselman, Lewis Mehl-Madrona, and Tom Cowan.
