Shamanic Dying & Beyond: Psychopomp and End of Life Training
Sep 28 to 29, 2019
Dying, & Beyond: Psychopomp & Transition Support Training
Dates: Saturday, Sept 28: 9:30–5 & Sunday, Sept 29: 9:30-5
Location: Asheville, NC
In this workshop we will explore the shamanic perspective on death and dying, and actively engage with the power of death as a profound path of shamanic initiation.
We will learn ways in which to help those who are engaged in the end of life process to prepare for their imminent passing, and discuss ways in which a successful crossing may be inhibited. Techniques will be explored for assisting disembodied souls whose crossing was unsuccessful to complete their journey to the Afterlife.
Ways in which to cultivate a path of power so that we may be power-filled when engaging in shamanic work will be discussed.
We will explore the cosmology of the Afterlife, hold a ceremony for assisting a group of discarnate souls who are seeking assistance in completing their way to the Afterlife, and offer psychopomp assistance to a loved one who has passed on.
We will also discuss the ethics and principles for doing Psychopomp work, as well as the the use of language and the importance of a respectful perspective surrounding each individual's personal paradigm regarding their spiritual beliefs surrounding death and dying.
