1) RECAPITULATION i - A PATH TO SELF-HEALING

Self Healing deals with the techniques of the recapitulation practice and the methods involved in reclaiming your personal energy, healing the wounds of the past and learning to understand what is yours and what is not in the world. Niteshad (Gary Mills) has written extensively about the recapitulation as practice as well as other methods for healing the self. This class will be run in eight week sessions, simply because the nature of the practice requires a longer period of time to begin and assess. Self healing is a process and can take time, the class is designed to allow people to move at their own pace as individual needs require.

Class Length: 8 weeks

Pre-Requisite: None

2) SPIRALS I - INTENTIONAL LIVING

The Spirals class covers the recognition, use and recovery of personal intent.

This class examines in detail the ways in which our own intent and that of others impacts us in the world. It begins with an examination of what 'intent' is exactly and how it directs our lives. We will explore the nature of intent itself as an energy and the ways in which shamans handle intent in their own lives and use it to impact the world. Intent is not about 'wishing upon a star', yet the way in which it impacts everything both in us and around us is vital to understand for anyone pursuing a shamanic path. The class is a seven week intensive about the nature of intent, with appropriate exercises and practices.

Class Length: 7 weeks

Pre-Requisite: None

3) QUICKSILVER - HANDLING PERCEPTION

Two topics are studied that lie at the heart of shamanic traditions, the ability to be aware beyond normal limitations and how we perceive the world. This class on the specific topic of perception will explore: what exactly is perception as an energy, how is it connected to the world and how can we alter it. The class includes exercises, practical applications and various methods for altering perceptual awareness and learning to control it. This class will require as a prerequisite one of the first three classes.

Class Length: 7 weeks

(Taking Recap and Spirals first is suggested)

4) DREAMING I - ASLEEP

The dreaming class involves learning how to handle dreaming energy and is more than an introductory course. First is sleep dreaming and will be the primary focus of the class, which will be explored as active dreaming. This is not a dream interpretation class, it is about shamanic dreaming and the ways in which shamans learn to interpret, control and use their dreaming energy. Dreaming practices are some of the most unsettling in the shamanic repertoire, this class will require as a prerequisite one of the first three classes.

Class Length: 7 weeks

(Taking Recap and Spirals first is suggested)

5) STALKING I - STALKING THE SELF

The Stalking 1 class deals with actively hunting the self and is a corollary to the recapitulation as well as using intent in a personal way exploring the concepts of personal power. Various methods of opening the self and hunting down both expectations and unnecessary internal obstacles for shamanic movement are explored. These can involve an intense examination of ego and fear from an internal perspective. The class is active and explores methods and practices for hunting the aspects of self that obstruct a shamanic path.

Class Length: 7 weeks

(Taking Recapitulation, Spirals, Dreaming, Quicksilver first is suggested) & Faculty Approval

6) SEEING I - EYES WIDE SHUT

This beginning class on ‘seeing’ introduces people to the world of the seer in shamanic traditions. Study in this class is active and involves practices and methods used by seers as well as means of verification and understanding.

Class Length: 7 Weeks

(Taking Recap, Spirals, Dreaming & Quicksilver first is suggested)

7) SHAMANIC WILL - FINDING THE SHAMANIC VOICE

The Shamanic Will class focuses primarily on technique and the ability to project personal energy through shamanic voice, as well as other aspects of projecting into the world through individual expression. The class will examine through practices and exercises the methods for expressing a shamanic intent through an act of will directly into the daily world. The class focuses as a beginning point primarily on the voice, but will also explore other ways in general that shamanic will can be focused on the daily world and elsewhere.

Class Length: 7 Weeks

(Taking Recapitulation, Spirals, Quicksilver, Dreaming I, Stalking I, Seeing I and Shamanic Tools first is suggested but not required)

8) TRAINING THE SHAMANIC MIND

Training the shamanic mind is a precursor to the advanced classes taught at Shamanscave. This class explores the concept of mind versus the shamanic and focuses on techniques to use an extraordinary worldview through the rational mind. The class will use exercises and practices to help train the mind to bend to the total will of the student and allow them to access a larger worldview through the normal channels of perception and awareness. The class is designed to take the exercises from perception (Quicksilver) and intent (Spirals) and sublimate them into a natural flow of practice through the rational mind.

Class Length: 7 Weeks

(Taking Recapitulation, Spirals, Quicksilver, Dreaming I, Stalking I, Seeing I and Shamanic Tools is suggested but not required)

9) CONVERSTAIONS WITH A MAKER

The Conversations class was created to allow for discussion of a variety of topics in which people have shown great interest over the years. One topic will be covered each week and include; who and what is a shaman, seers, death walking, stalking the self, shamanic healing and moving energy. This is really an introductory course for those that simply want a better understanding of some of the practices involved in contemporary shamanism and the viewpoints of practitioners. There are exercises attached to the classes in order for the student to gain a better understanding of the concepts involved.

Class Length: 7 weeks

Pre-Requisite: None

10) SHAMANIC TOOLS I

The Shamanic Tools class will explore the use of various tools and methods in different aspects of shamanism. Topics covered will include scrying, casting of object, power objects and movement through representative aspects of the four elements. While using tools is not a necessity in the practice of contemporary shamanism many people find them beneficial as an aid to movement of both their awareness and perception. We will discuss how to use various tools and the process underlying the energy of both the tool and the agreement reached with the user.

Class Length: 7 weeks

(Taking Spirals first is suggested)
