Eco Shamanism is a term used to describe a new shamanism that embraces all our senses, including our spirit sense (sixth sense). By linking our inner and outer worlds with our senses and using guided shamanic journeying in the natural and built environments, we can begin to experience ourselves as an element of Earth. This helps us avoid the all too common sense of dissociation and separation from our surroundings and ultimately, our selves (and each other). As civilisations have become more and more complex, and often more and more detached from the 'ordinary' world by being 'indoors' and/or 'in technological gadgets', our sense of immediacy with our physical and sensual surroundings becomes less visceral and more heady, or intellectual. Eco Shamanism is a practise that helps us reconnect our senses and spirit to our surroundings or environment and gives us the opportunity to become one with the spiritual element of our immediate world.
During the workshop we will practise simple ‘sense’ connection techniques which you will then take ‘outside’. There will be an hour lunch break and short breaks in the morning and afternoon. These one day workshops will give you a flavour of Eco Shamanism and an idea of the work present in the Shifting Terrain Course.
