Shaman Training Class To Start Soon

A new shaman training class  for beginners will start soon, so if you’ve felt an urge to explore the shamanic path, or even if you have been curious about it or wish to experience its sacred ways,  I invite you to consider enrolling right away.  A few people have already reserved their places for the five-month course, and there is still room for you.  I prefer small class sizes (four to six people) in order to devote more time to each student, so you can be assured that you will receive personal attention each time the group meets.

Once there is a sufficient number, we will all find a compatible start date via an email exchange, and that way you get to choose a day and date you are comfortable with.  All materials are included in the cost, and a payment plan is available.  I will also provide a drum to play (and will teach you how to play it) if you don’t have one.

Each class includes extensive experiential training where you will learn how:

  • to play the sacred drum and rattle
  • to make your own medicine bag
  • to do your own shamanic journey
  • to help yourself and others spiritually heal
  • to retrieve power animals for yourself and others
  • to perform soul retrieval
  • to extract and negate negative energy from others
  • to perform divination in a variety of ways
  • and to learn many other techniques intended to benefit yourself and others

When you have completed the course, you will receive a Certificate of Accomplishment.

So, if you have felt Spirit leaning into you, urging you to grow and to awaken the healer within, now is the perfect time to step onto the path. I hope you will join the circle today!

Aho & Namaste,
Bob

Make Your Own Shamanic Tools For Powerful Spiritual Healing

 

Using your hands to help your heart
There’s nothing like making your own sacred shamanic helper tools.

I’m gradually adding more and more focus with Thunder Valley Drums on helping you to make your own shaman and spiritual gear. There is nothing more satisfying— and empowering— than making something with your own hands from the gifts of Mother Earth.

During healing ceremonies and while connecting with Spirit in your own way, these things you make just naturally fit better in your hand, are imbued with your own special energy and medicine, and are infinitely more capable of helping you to more quickly accomplish your goals because you know their history, know their place of origination, and you can thus feel and guide their energy better. They are your tools. A healer’s tools.

So I have begun offering kits you can assemble yourself, as well as writing a series of eBooks and booklets with step-by-step instructions for aiding you in making your own shaman gear, including suggested ceremonies and other activities you may want to
incorporate into your items to energize and attune them with you.

Oh sure, I put great love into the things I make for you. I know no other way. That was part of my original vow to service, which I continue to hold to quite joyously. That was a life changing event! Further, I realize that many people truly don’t have the means to make some of their tools, and that is why I continue to make and offer such things as shamanic drums and worked wooden expressions. Modern life sometimes places people in small city apartments, and who has room for a table saw? Moreover, the chances of finding a lightning-struck limb or tree are mighty slim if you live in the desert. Many customers overseas prefer some things that are American made or grown, too. Great!

But many things require nothing more than a counter top or the kitchen table in order to make them, no matter where you live. And that’s where I’m beginning to place emphasis. You can make such things as medicine bag necklaces, items for your circle and altar, wrapping a special feather for your drum or other use, making a spirit shield— goodness sakes, I could go on and on. The point, though, is that you will be amazed at the difference when you make it yourself.

Here are a few links to the free articles and some very inexpensive eBooks and booklets you can use to get you going. And once you find out how thrilling, how deeply spiritual, how invigorating and yes, how inexpensive it is to make your own shaman gear, you’ll need not depend on someone else, including me, from then on. You will be exploring a deep and wonderful part of yourself and of Spirit that can yield great revelations.

Start with something small, and you’ll instantly see what I mean. After all, Creation itself started small. And just look at how beautiful and expansive its handiwork has become! Its perfection is everywhere if you look for it. You can start by peering into a mirror!

Bright blessings to you and to all of those around you, seen and unseen, here and there, All That Is.

Aho & Namaste,
Bob
