Shamanic Journeying Classes
Shamanic Journeying is a form of spiritual practice which facilitates entering an
active meditation state. In this mediation state the person is able to access Divine
guidance, support, information and healing by connecting with and working with energies,
Beings, spiritual guides, power animals, angels, and more. Brenda teaches this active
form of meditation from a perspective that honors Native American tradition.
Using the beat of a drum, which has been shown to facilitate trance meditation in
humans, Brenda guides students in allowing some of their energy to go outside of
our usual, ordinary reality to be in “non-ordinary reality” (NOR). From this perspective,
students are able to access in literal and symbolic form guidance, support and healing.
NOR is initially considered to have three levels: An upper world which is light,
airy and cloud-like; a lower world which looks much like a different version of
our current world, and the middle world, which is the energetic complement to our
current reality. As a person becomes more skilled, they can explore and learn from
many “places” and Beings outside of ordinary reality (OR) time and space. Some of
these experiences include the akashic record room, which holds information about
“past lives,” and other dimensions of experience. It was through shamanic journeying
that Brenda first had long conversations with angels and began to learn about all
the ways the Divine wishes to support us in creating our unique paths.
Historically, this class has been done over a single long weekend (Friday through
Sunday) or over two weekends. The class includes a manual, education and practice.
It is important to realize that learning shamanic journeying as a spiritual practice
is like any other spiritual practice: the benefits and skills connected with a particular
practice are only fully experienced with actual practice over time.
Brenda believes it is important to learn shamanic journeying from a reputable teacher
and not from a book. When exploring unknown things, it is important to know how
to do so with safety and integrity.
