Upcoming Workshops

The Foundation for Shamanic Studies (FSS) has a wealth of information on their site about Core Shamanism, FSS workshops, and the work of the Foundation. If you're in the mood, I recommend you browse through their site, and check out some articles and videos.

If you're curious about the workshops, a good place to start is on the FSS's workshops page, or their Frequently Asked Questions page. And of course, if you have specific questions, you are welcome to contact me directly.

THE WAY OF THE SHAMAN®: Shamanic Journeying, Power, and Healing
(The Basic Workshop in Core Shamanism)

September 29-30, 2018
Workshop is 9-5 both days and held at the University of Victoria
Price is $325

During the Basic experiential workshop, participants are introduced to core shamanism, the universal, near-universal, and common methods of the shaman to enter nonordinary reality for problem solving and healing. Particular emphasis is on the classic shamanic journey, one of the most remarkable visionary methods used by humankind to explore the hidden universe otherwise known mainly through myth and dream. Participants are initiated into shamanic journeying, aided by drumming and other techniques for experiencing the shamanic state of consciousness and for awakening dormant spiritual abilities, including connections with Nature.

Christobel’s students say:
"One of the best things I've ever done. She was a perfect guide. Her knowledge was huge, she was kind and generous, and I trusted her completely."
"Thank you for such a wonderful and life changing weekend!" 

Note: this workshop is limited to participants 18 years and older. Journeys are aided with percussive drumming, only (i.e. no herbs or tonics are offered as a part of this program).
