Shamanism is the oldest spiritual and healing practice on the planet. It has roots in native peoples and traditions right across the globe. Shamanic practitioners access inner wisdom and healing by entering into an altered state of consciousness very similar to the hypnotic trance state in NLP.
The practitioner does this in order to connect with Spirit Guides, Power Animals and their own innate wisdom, intuition and understanding.
They enter into this trance state through the hypnotic rhythm of the drum. This is called Journeying.
By bringing the wisdom and guidance gathered on a Jouney into ordinary reality and daily life, the practioner is empowered into affecting change in their day to day living.
In Shamanic Counselling, the Counsellor is there to initially help the client formulate an intention for their Journey by assisting the client to understand what specifically you wish to address.
The Counsellor then holds Sacred Space and supports the client while you yourself enter a guided Journey to seek answers to and guidance on the issues you set out to address.
Client and Counsellor then discuss the client’s Journey. Together we decipher any messages, insights and symbols that may have arisen and how they may relate to the client’s chosen intention, as set out at the start of the session. By tracking to the root of the client’s issues together ,we are able to alter the energetic draw you may feel to any familiar old wounds . By applying NLP and visualisation techniques, the client can be freed from binding old thought and behaviour patterns into creating, discovering and understanding the infinite possibilities that are available inherently to them.
The Counsellor then guides and supports the client through the process of integrating any findings and insights gathered on their Journey and how best to incorporate these findings into their everyday life.
