Are you struggling with old wounds or emotional baggage?

Do you feel blocked on your journey to inner growth? 

Are you ready for personal empowerment through shamanic initiation?


Join us in Gold Coast, Australia where the glittering golden sands meet near-pristine ancient forests for a transformational journey through the ceremony of Shamanic Breathwork - a powerful healing process that inspires individuals to reconnect with their own inner healer. It’s a journey taken by connecting the breath, chakra-attuned music, focused bodywork, art, and group sharing to leave you empowered with the magic of who you truly are. Through Shamanic Breathwork, old wounds and dysfunctional patterns are released and transformed, bringing wholeness and healing back into your life, your loved ones, and the world around you.


This 5-weekend immersion program will take you through the Shamanic Healing Initiatory Process (SHIP). The program is a series of 5 transformative weekends where you will receive initiations based on the 5 elements. This highly experiential process taps into your inner self, releasing blocks to higher love and wisdom. As you re-integrate through embodiment of the 5 Elements, you will be set free to stand in the truth of your authentic being and walk a path with heart. You will journey beyond the limitations of ego identity and shape-shift into your sacred soul purpose.

Unleash Personal Healing and Transformation Through the Breath

What's Included

Snake - Spiral - Gold flip.png

You will process through five levels of shamanic healing, each an initiation based on one of the 5 Elements. The five initiations each feature a Shamanic Breathwork journey, utilizing the breath, sound healing through chakra-attuned music, energetic bodywork, soul return and extraction, shamanic art processes, scribing and group processing. Journeyers enter an altered state of consciousness that transforms and integrates trauma experienced earlier in life; creates a connection with their soul and spirit guides; and receive visions about their sacred purpose in the world. You will walk between the worlds: working on physical, emotional, mental, and energetic levels as you learn to embody the elements.


In addition to the guidance of your teachers, you will have the support of a co-journeyer - a fellow student who will assist you with whatever your need during your psycho-spiritual voyage. You will switch roles with your partner halfway through the day, helping to create a nurturing, supportive, and safe space in which all participants can grow together as a community. Upon completion of the elemental journeys, you can feel fully embodied through each Shamanic Breathwork experience.  

In this Shamanic Breathwork Immersion, you will:

  • Learn shamanic tools to create real and lasting change in your life

  • Transform troubling issues from the past that still impact you today

  • Reclaim your passion and your power by recovering lost aspects of your authentic self

  • Deepen your connection to unconditional love for self & others

  • Enhance your ability to support others; and share your unique gifts and sacred purpose with the world


You will have the best possible facilitators to ensure a safe and meaningful journey. Shamanic Breathwork Master Practitioner and Venus Rising staff member Levi Banner and Kundalini Dance and Munay Ki Facilitator Patricia Silverwolf teach in a blend of ancient traditions and modern methodologies. They bring to you open, loving hearts and minds, willing to support and travel with you wherever you need to go. Along with your initiation into Shamanic Breathwork, you will begin to learn Shamanic Breathwork facilitation skills. Additional practices could include Yoga, Dance, Meditation, Astrology, Shamanic Ceremonies, and other activities providing spiritual integration and a well-rounded experience touching body, mind, heart, and spirit.


The training takes place at the Resonance Room, where you will look out upon stunning Tallebudgera Valley views as you sit beneath the vaulted timber ceiling. Set amongst the trees near Gold Coast found on the glittering Eastern Australian coastline. Nestled in this sacred valley and not far from the ocean, this privately owned space is perfect for disconnecting from the busy world and reconnecting with your true self.


Surrounded by a high-vibrational community of change-makers and visionaries, the space will be held for you to develop a connection to your own inner healer and move into an incredible new level of shamanic understanding. You will find purpose, develop new skills, heal old wounds, learn more about yourself, find a family of like-minded seekers, and delve deep into yourself through the breath.


In union with the breath, you will undertake a journey through the Five Elements during a Full Moon to Full Moon astrological cycle, initiated in ceremony and surrounded by a loving tribe. On this path of personal healing, we will become empowered to heal ourselves. Breathwork, ceremony, and the natural beauty of Gold Coast will leave you revitalized and reborn.

What is S.H.I.P.?

Snake - Spiral - Gold flip.png

The Shamanic Healing Initiatory Process (S.H.I.P.) is a series of five highly transformative initiations designed to awaken The Aquarian Shaman. Connected to the elemental world, each initiation will support you in releasing old programming, shape-shifting your own consciousness, and transforming your life.

Elemental Initiations

1. Water: The Sacred Wheel of Life and The Spiral Path

Each time we come back to something, we come back changed. Constant renewal is the shamanic path - the spiral of life. Everything in the universe flows in a spiral. Here we get settled in and see what’s stirred up in ourselves, as we are new in the space and like water, fluid. We connect with our new community and to the new practices.


2. Earth: Honoring the Ancestors and Re-membering the Cosmic Tree of Life

The family we choose is our family of choice. We begin to release the blocks and barriers of our own heart - the habits, patterns, and traumas or wounds developed from our family of origin. Here we see in a solid way what they are, and how to free ourselves. We tap into these family roots, and the interconnectedness of the tree of life as we embrace family and friends.


3. Fire: Soul Loss and Reclaiming the Shadow

Here we shine a light on our dark places - what’s beneath the surface, what’s following you, and what you can’t see. Fire transforms all it touches. In an intense and cathartic initiation, we use the power of fire to burn away our patterns; to release anger, frustration and blame; and finally come to a come to a warm heart space.


4. Spirit: Opening to the Beloved- Contacting your Spiritual Helpers and Guides

We all possess an inner beloved and have the capacity to connect to the divine. Here we learn to love our ourselves, our innate gifts and our inner other. Now that we have cleared so much, it is time to see how much we can open our hearts to our own inner self - that part of you that you show up for. Connecting to our inner masculine or feminine, we experience the union of duality.


5. Air: Awakening the Aquarian Shaman

The deepest human longing is discovering what we are here to do and why. We embrace forward movement - becoming empowered agents of change and enabled in our mission. Here we accept the seat of a teacher and learn how to carry this role forward into the world. We step into being the best versions of ourselves as we finally connect to our true life purpose.

These initiations will support in creating sacred space- a safe container where you will deepen your personal transformation with the Shamanic Breathwork® Process.  The Shamanic Breathwork Process is a safe and powerful healing ceremony that allows you to personally connect with and activate each initiation into your own heart and psyche. Using cyclical breathing, chakra-attuned music, focused bodywork, artistic expression, and community sharing, the Shamanic Breathwork Process will accelerate your own personal transformation and awaken your own shamanic consciousness.
