Psychological Shamanism: Answering the Call to Authenticity

Friday, April 28, 2017 - 10:00am to 5:00pm
Jan Ögren, MFT and is co-facilitated by the Guardian Spirits of Earthrise


EarthRise Transformative Learning Center

This workshop offers help, encouragement and guidance to be fully you.

Following our own path encourages others to follow their unique paths into the love, mysteries and abundance of both the physical and non-physical worlds. Coming together with the intention of exploring our role in the universe creates a community of support: from the human, spirit and natural worlds.

This workshop will be co-facilitated by the Guardian Spirits of Earthrise and other natural energies. You are welcome to invite any spirit guides, animal helpers or other beings that you work with. It is also an opportunity to connect with guides if you haven’t before, or if you have felt blocked or discouraged in connecting, or to expand your “family” of spirit and natural helpers.

We will explore the many gifts of going beyond our normal senses into the psychic abilities IONS scientists have been studying (and proving) for the last 40 years.

I will be sharing techniques and practical tools that I have learned in over thirty years of apprenticing with Native American teachers and healers. I will also be drawing from my background in neuroscience and my expertise as a licensed psychotherapist to help us expand beyond the blocks and fears that prevent us from fully embracing our place in this world.

This workshop is an introduction to Psychological Shamanism
which is the branch of shamanism best suited for European and Western culture. From Descartes to Freud, from Socrates to Einstein, Western civilizations have focused on the mind as a tool to explore the world. Like all shamanic tools the mind needs to be treated with respect and care. It has the ability to both cause devastating destruction and create profound innovations and enlightenment. This workshop will help you use your mind as a shamanistic tool for healing and enlightenment within a safe, respectful environment.

Comments from participants in past workshops:

“Lovely, informative and playful.”
“I learned to be open to receiving and to allow my imagination to run free. That it’s okay to be really weird!”
“All pieces work well together. I liked Jan’s stories and easy manner.”
“I learned how to trust my experiences, be open to creative imagination and opening up to the Earth.”
“What I liked best about the workshop was meeting people with like minds and hearts and hearing these people say what I’ve been feeling myself.”
“A validation and encouragement that I do have the capacity to communicate with nature spirits.”

“Jan Ögren has given us a set of tales and adventure stories for both children and adults that masterfully speak to the beauty and potential of the human spirit, without ever becoming preachy or feeling like lessons.  I highly recommend this book – AND I’m putting it on my bedside table to remind me to stay in a state of wonder and mystery as I make my way through each day.”
– Cassandra Vieten, President/CEO Institute of Noetic Sciences and author of Mindful Motherhood and co-author of Living Deeply.
