Application process: to join this training please submit an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org explaining your interest in this course. You should include details of why you wish to join the course, any previous shamanic experience and any work in the area of self development and a little about your interests and general health too. This will be followed up with a brief phone conversation if Mandy has not already met you on a workshop or other event. When applying you will need to pay the deposit fee. Should you not gain a place on the training the full deposit will be refunded to you.
You will need to know how to journey shamanically and there is an opportunity to learn this technique at a Learn the Shaman's Journey workshop (click here to go the page) or on a one to one basis with Mandy - currently two half days available online at a discount for those applying for the training. Attendance at one of the Eco Shamanism Day workshops will give you an idea of what to expect on this workshop and although this is not compulsory it is recommended, or attending one of the other workshops where you can meet and work with Mandy. You will also need a shamanic drum - this can be borrowed and does not need to be owned. It is strongly recommended that you seek a shamanic healing before coming on this course. A list of Eco Shamanic practitioners can be found here.
