If you are on this page, chances are you have heard the call of the Shaman and are trying to figure out what that means.
First, let me say that the word Shaman is an umbrella term. It refers to a very specific tradition from an area of Russia. In English, it also lumps together with any native traditions. This means that when you are looking for a teacher, ask questions and gain an awareness of who they are a teacher, and what lineages and traditions they represent.
Once you know who they are, and what they offer you can discover if that resonates with you.
My tradition is the Katari tradition of Cross-cultural shamanism. My teacher is Zane Curfman. The Katari tradition is a blending of the Qero tradition found in the high mountains of Peru along with the coastal traditions. Zane founded the Salka Munay Ayllu which is an organization dedicated to preserving the ancient medicine ways.
I present the material as close to the original teachings as possible however the 4th level tradition of the Paqo (nature mystic) is to empower people to follow their own knowing and to live from your heart space.
Every even year, we offer the apprenticeship in a more formal class setting over a span of 7 weekends. This same work is also available one on one and can be broken up to meet your needs and to go at your own pace. Ideally, the first 3 rounds of intimidation and instruction are a good start as you will have both your large Mesa spread and your smaller Kintu Mesa as well.
If you would like to meet to see if the tradition meets your needs, please schedule my complimentary consultation so we can discuss your needs.
The description of the apprenticeships is in the process of being re-written her. For now, please visit our other site to read the current description.
