The Shaman as PsychopompTM
     Oct 23 & 24, 2021           via Zoom Robbie Staufer, Instructor       10.5 FSS CE Credits

  Description: Shamans are known as healers of the living, the dying and the dead. Familiar with the realms of the dead, a shaman can act as a psychopomp - a conductor of souls. A trained shamanic practitioner is able to guide the soul of a deceased person out of the Middle World to a place of help and healing. The focus of this training is on learning and practicing the psychopomp method.

In this experiential workshop, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Explore what happens for human souls from a core shamanic perspective after they leave the body - the "destiny of human souls" in the Upper, Lower, and Middle Worlds
  • Learn and practice the psychopomp method to help the souls of the deceased out of the Middle World to a better place, including:
    • How to locate a soul in the Middle World that may be stuck and in need of help
    • How to obtain the soul's permission to offer shamanic assistance
    • How to guide the soul to a place in the Upper or Lower World where it will receive the help that is needed.

Workshop times are Saturday and Sunday, 10am to 4pm Mountain Time
