Shamanic Breathwork


Level 111: Master Practitioner

Apprenticeship Program

The Apprenticeship Program is for certified Shamanic Breathwork Facilitators who have completed both the Level I: S.H.I.P. program, the Level II: Facilitator Skills program, and who feel a deeper calling to planetary service and embodying Shamanic Consciousness in their everyday lives and sacred work.

Stepping into the path of apprenticing with Venus Rising is for those who have a true calling to this work and of being in service to others.  In this 300+ hour training you will have the opportunity to work with a Mentor, who will guide you into deeper levels within yourself and the work, as you take it out into the world.  


The Apprenticeship Program is designed to be highly individualized, together with your Mentor you will create a personalized program that is led by your interests and desired areas of development. By the end of the program you will be able to demonstrate masterful proficiency in all steps necessary to set, hold, execute, process, integrate, and complete a SBW Ceremony with confidence and professionalism.

All Apprentices will re-enter into both the S.H.I.P program and SKILLS program on a deeper level. Master Apprentices are invited to step into holding the training as if it is your own. Just like being a parent or leader of a group, this comes with a lot of hard work and dedication in the responsibility of holding space for others. Apprentices are usually the first ones on site in the morning and the last ones to leave at night!
