Learn about Healing in the Maker Tradition
What is healing, from a shamanic perspective?
Simply put, healing is an act of moving energy with intent.
"Shamans are healers of souls - this was, and still is, their primary function as healers." - Gary Mills
How do Makers heal?
Makers move energy directly to create or re-establish balance within a client's energy bodies with their intent and will, and often with the elements of wind, fire, earth, and water as allies.
According to their individual predilections, Makers will approach their healing as a stalker, a dreamer, a seer, and/or often a combination of those aspects.
How do I learn how to heal others the Maker way?
If you have a serious intent to learn how to the heal in the Maker tradition, you'll need to learn from a Maker or by taking the online classes at shamanscave.com. There are no other Maker-related websites, affiliations, or the like besides this one, and this is because the Maker tradition has been a closed family tradition until this generation. This is due to this site's founder, Gary Mills, choosing to open the Maker tradition by teaching to the wider public.
Overview of timeframe and commitment
It takes the average student about 6 years to be able to move to an energetic position where they may begin to learn to heal others in the Maker tradition. In this time, the student will spend about 1.5 - 2 years in the Tier 1 classes which are about healing themselves and their world. Three to four more years in Tier 2 & Tier 3 where they spiral outward into this world and then beyond this world. All told, there are about 250 weekly exercises or movements in the first three Tiers. Also, during this time, the student will continue the self-healing practice of recapitulating one's entire life to regain their personal energy.
After that, the Maker Healing Method is taught over the course of 10 classes, and an invitation is given for ongoing practice with the healing lab collective. The student may also begin Tier 4 at this time, which includes 10 master classes on the Maker tradition.
It should be said that the path to healing others in the Maker tradition is not certain or guaranteed. Students are continually evaluated by faculty, especially prior to moving ahead to Tier 3. It is at the end of Tier 3 with faculty approval that the student may choose to commit to the Maker tradition via the Agreement and begin to learn the Maker Healing Method, if they choose to do so.
