Sacred Callings of the Shaman: Invocation Training Course
Offering by Pearl Pierce
Prerequisite: Level 1: Basic Shamanic Journey Skills or with instructor approval
Invocation training provides an opportunity to refresh your skills and strengthen your relationship with spirit. Upon completion of the Basic Journey class, it is important that the relationships that have been initiated with spirit helpers and power animals be honored and respectfully maintained. Additionally, it is vital to continue to hone the skills necessary to create a sacred space and fill with personal power.
Calling or invoking the spirits creates a sacred space. A collective of spirits will respond from each direction, and by utilizing all your senses, they can be contacted and engaged in ritual. Participants will build relationships with specific spirits. In working with the four directions, you will discover how to bring in more of the qualities of each direction into your life; learn the teachings that the spirits of each direction bring regarding those qualities; and how your life can be imbued with those qualities.
In this course, you will learn to be in relationship with your spirit guides. You will develop personal techniques for creating sacred space with song, instrument and intention. The class will focus on creating and practicing your unique style of calling to the four directions, dancing your power animal, filling with personal power, and experiencing different journey styles.
In this course, you will:
- Practice and refine journey skills.
- Call in the spirits and create your own, personal invocation. Strong calling songs will develop.
- Teachings from the Medicine Wheel: each direction holds particular energies. What message does each direction hold for you?
- Build confidence in your relationship with Spirit
- Gain experience and understanding by sharing and having fun with a group of like-minded seeker.
- Your relationship with the spirits will be “felt” and capitalized on during the invoking process.
- With strong voice and ritual you will choreograph the energy of the room filling the room with spirit. Your personal space will become sacred and charged.
- It is vital to continue to hone the skills necessary to create a sacred space and fill with personal power.
