INTO THE JOURNEY intensive: Deepen the heart of your shamanic practice with Jonathan Horwitz and Zara Waldebäck

On this course you will develop your shamanic journeying skills, learn to work more powerfully with your Spirit helpers, deepen your trust and commitment, and discover new possibilities for helping both yourself and others.



Strengthen the heart of your shamanic practice.


The journey to the Spirit world and the relationship to the Spirits is the heart of the shaman’s practice. When this heart is strong, it gives strength and clarity to all aspects of shamanic work, whether it is healing and empowerment, community ceremony, nature magic or living a spirit-led life.


When we first meet the Spirits and begin to practice, we often have powerful experiences but it is not always easy to see how to bring them back to our lives to make a lasting difference. This course helps you to deepen your relationship with your Spirit Guides and Helpers and take the next step, wherever you are on your shamanic path.




Deepen your connection with the Spirits


When you grasp the tools of the shamanic drum journey in a detailed and disciplined way, you enter into an apprenticeship with the Spirits and gain more appreciation of both the skill and mystery of the journey. The apprentice shaman keeps a beginners mind and continues to explore the ways of the Spirits, gaining experience, understanding, knowledge and trust.


Working specifically with the drum journey, on this course you will learn more about how the Spirits communicate and how to understand what they say. We will look at how to use the journey in everyday life and formulate clear and powerful intentions that are meaningful and practical.




Experience the full depth of the Shamanic Drum Journey


You will receive guidance on how to prepare well and practice the drum journey so it is strong, focused and well held. We will also show you how to “read” the journey and receive its deeper teachings, to help you to better understand the language of the Spirits.






Receive deeper teaching on Into the Journey.


Though the main focus is on the shamanic drum journey, in this extended version of the course we will also spend some time in nature.


You will learn how to take the knowledge and practice of journeys into the world and read the signs the Earth shows us when we walk with intention and attention.


There will also be time for sharing and asking questions about shamanic practice and your personal path with the Spirits. This way of working will help to integrate your shamanic practice into your everyday life, so you can feel connected not only while on a workshop or in a drumming group, but walk with Power wherever you are. It will help you to see more clearly and listen more deeply, both to yourself, the world and the Spirits.





The course is designed to strengthen your practice and inspire your work, no matter if you are new on the shaman’s path or if you have walked it for years.



Please note: All participants must have completed introductory course "The Shaman's Journey" or a "Basicursus Sjamanisme" or an agreed equivalent.
