The Caverns Story
Classes at Shamans Cave have a new name, The Caverns. The name may be new, but the classes are the same ones developed over many years here. This version of the classes began November 5th, 2005.
Who Are The Makers
Who Are The Makers?
I found the soul of the Makers - who they were, what they were trying to do, why they suffered so. The Makers were not criers of their own misfortune, they were powerful, direct, subtle and quiet, capable of things, which in our world seem so surreal,
How Classes Work At The Caverns
Courses here at The Caverns cover an entire tradition and as such take some time to work through. Because it is a full tradition you cannot pick and choose classes just for fun, students find working through them from the beginning to be the most edifying and practical. Please do not ask us to let you start at the master level, it is not in your best interest.
Classes are held on a private IRC (Internet Relay Chat) server, this helps to prevent connection issues and allows you to keep logs of your own class. We provide edited logs as well, which you can access as long as Shamans Cave may be around. You can access the direct link to the chat channel here.
Classes run an hour or hour and half depending on student participation, so come with questions about the subject of the class. When you sign up for a class you get access to your own private class forum, edited logs for your class and access to the student section where you will find additional material with more being added all the time.
If you have question please contact us and we'll try to help you as much as possible.
