Deepen your hearts calling into the roots and branches of the Tree of Life ~ Cultivate your awareness of the wisdom and beauty from Nature ~ Listen to the voice of Spirit through the veil of time ~ Receive messages of healing from Ancestors and Spirit Guides ~ Walk the path of your True Belonging ~ Remember your place in the web of life on the Golden Path of Shamanic Way.

Join me for a 7 month deep dive into the forgotten wisdom of our ancestors. We are each living with the forgotten memory of belonging in our dna. Our modern materialist culture does not satisfy the depths of this need. But through the shamanic path we befriend our souls longing and learn to hear the communication that comes from nature and spirit to sustain us.

Shamanic practices are rising up again as the Voice of Earth trembles and roars her song through the din of our modern distractions “Wake up my children! Come home to the Beauty Way that remembers all life and the web that interconnects us. The time is now to Kneel and Feel what is Real.” Every culture through time had a shamanic way that revered nature through sacred reciprocity and ceremony. We will practice to Re-memeber these ways from our indigenous past, ways that can have both spiritual and practical applications. We will receive direct revelations unique to our own ancestral inheritance and the evolution of our time.

Core to our curriculum: Befriending the magical Elements of Creation, Earth, Air, Water, Fire, Ether | Reweaving the Spiral of Seasons and Medicine Wheel into Consciousness | Accessing our Guides and Guardians - Spirit Team | Exploring the Lower, Middle and Upper extraordinary realms, mapping the architecture and navigation of our Journeys | Energy Protection practices and Healing Tools for self and others including power and soul retrieval, entity extractions, cord removal.

Becoming the hollow bone, Self Healing, will be the foremost honorable aspect of our journey. Integrity, Humility, Honesty, Empathy, Self Responsibility and Impeccability is our foundation. As we Heal Ourselves we Heal Mother Earth.

The Curriculum is direct from my shamanic teachers in Ireland plus other Wise Ones I've studied with including my years of practice and Spirit Team. The Celtic Druid tradition will be strongly emphasized but we will also delve into cross cultural practices and the wisdom of Star Elders to create our own unique rainbow bridge with Spirit.

I am called to guide people home to their own innate Belonging. To discover the light within and the divine guidance that is your birthright.

The earth is calling us to remember that we are part of her, interconnected in the web of life. Shamanism is a life long devotion and practice in deepening our relationship with the elements and learning their wisdom that supports and guides life.  This practice helps us to connect deeply to the great mystery where the magical is real and the real is magical. The result is living every day as sacred, the golden path of the shamanic way. At the conclusion there will be a Vision Quest outing to a sacred place where we will fast, stalk and pray for guidance.

Cara is an extremely gifted and talented practitioner and teacher. Her Introduction to Shamanism course was both informative and experiential. Cara’s knowledge is so expansive and yet she honed it down perfectly to give us the appropriate amount of information for an intro course. I had never journeyed before and being led by her into the realms created amazing openings to new visions which provided awe, insight and self reflection. Cara’s ability to interpret our journeys is a gift that she shared readily and was so helpful to the overall experience. I plan to participate in more classes or sessions with Cara in the future.

Cara’s introduction to Shamanism class is utterly profound and beautiful! As a beginner to Journeying this class was incredible - I came away from each class with deeper reflection, experience and practices. Cara holds sacred space, guides with a light touch and teaches with wisdom and grace. I will most definitely be continuing to study with Cara.

I just want to express my heart felt gratitude for the space you’ve created and for inviting me in! The intro to Shamanism course has been such a beautiful experience, it put a name to many ideas I’ve had but didn’t have words for. It has also opened up a world of trust in me, to trust my intuition, to trust the universe, to trust spirit to provide guidance and to listen to that guidance with an open heart. Also, I appreciate that you come from the place of sharing what you have learned but we are also learning together. It such a beautiful space you’ve created, for all of us.
