Level 1:

Shamanic Healing Initiatory Process  (S.H.I.P.)


The Shamanic Healing Initiatory Process (S.H.I.P.) is a series of trans­for­ma­tive initi­a­tions designed to let go of old story lines that no longer serve the planet or us as we step into our sacred purpose in this life­time. As the blocks to high­er love and wisdom are released and soul­ful inte­gra­tion occurs, indi­vid­u­als are set free to stand in the truth of their authen­tic being and walk a path of higher love and wisdom.

The purpose of this program is to assist indi­vid­u­als in learn­ing how to jour­ney beyond the limi­ta­tions of their ego iden­ti­ty and shape-shift into their sacred soul purpose.



*The SHIP initiations and teachings are offered by both Venus Rising and recognized Venus Rising Congregations around the world. 

Level I Training acknowledges the completion of all S.H.I.P. teachings and initiations.
