Shamanic Breathwork Training
Shamanic Healing Initiatory Process (S.H.I.P.)
April 10 - 23, 2023
Unleash Personal Healing and Transformation Through the Breath
Step onto the Spiral Path…
Join Star Wolf, Nikólaus Wolf, Levi Banner and Judy Redhawk for S.H.I.P. in Bali!!!
Join us in beautiful Bali 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 course will be running simultaneously as both SHIP and Skills trainings happening side by side. This means we have two separate trainings taking place at the same time, however both groups will be in sacred ritual and ceremony together and then go off into their own classrooms for the teachings. During our Dual Trainings, Venus Rising brings in more staff, which allows for a greater diversity and support than our other single programs. The result is a bigger container and a more dynamic experience for everyone.
This 14 Day immersion will take you through the Shamanic Healing Initiatory Process (SHIP). The program is a series of five transformative 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.
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
Facilitators, Linda Star Wolf, Nikolaus Wolf, Judy Redhawk, and Levi Banner, 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 learn Shamanic Breathwork facilitation skills. Daily integration of Yoga practice, Pranayama, Meditation, Astrology, Shamanic Ceremonies, and other activities provides a well-rounded experience touching body, mind, heart, and spirit.
The training takes place in the world renowned The Yoga Barn, located in Ubud, the spiritual center of beautiful and exotic Bali. A beautiful place with a high vibrational community of seekers, healers, and teachers, it is the perfect locale for spiritual awakening. By the end of this 14-day immersion, you will be a 1st Level Shamanic Breathwork Practitioner, have an option to become an Ordained Shamanic Minister, and have discovered keys to unlocking deep personal growth, healing, and happiness.
Are you ready to step onto the shamanic path of transformation?
Are you ready to journey into personal healing through the power of the breath?
Are you ready to change your life in magical place brimming with earth energy?
Join us in Bali - The Time To Heal Is Now
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. There will also be practice in Yoga, Pranayama, Meditation, and Astrological insights throughout the course.
1. Water: The Spiral Path and Five Cycles of Change
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: Your Family Tree and the 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: Meeting the Shadow and Inner Work
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 Inner Beloved
We all posses 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: Rising to the Call of Your Sacred Purpose
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.
