Shamanu Mentorship: The Wild Wisdom of Wonder
June 23 to October 1, 2023
Children instinctively love creation and, when allowed, develop wise respect and a fearless relationship with a wondrous world. Experiencing the world as alive, interconnected and sacred, home is underfoot, in the nearest tree, the wind, the smell of fresh rain, the mystery of a pond, the sound of thunder and sunshine.
A sense of ‘place’ and belonging is experienced, and curiosity, humility and the natural instinct of ‘care’ for creation emerges.
With the rise of industrialization and materialist science, we live in a time denoted by writers, philosophers and artists as ‘the age of disenchantment.’ Deepening into the mysteries of creation and the sacred wild wisdom of wonder reawakens a primal, life-giving and life-saving essence of what it means to be a human living in relation with billions of other-than-human beings.
This mentorship is for those who want to revive the joy, fulfillment and power of wonder essential for regenerating health, vitality, and a deep knowing of our interconnection with the larger order we are a part of. Wonder calls us home into our essence so we can meet the challenges of a shifting world with ease and trust in the creative processes of Life.
Restoring communion with the awe-inspiring life-force energies of Earth, Air, Sun/Fire, Water and Ether as the ‘ground of your Being’ re-awakens the ability to participate in Life’s elegant creativity and access the sacred purpose for which you were born.
“The Wild One is enchanted because it has been sung into the world by the world and knows this.” ~Bill Plotkin
Wonder invites the embodiment of the transformational frequency of Love. To do this, we need human and nature communities to remind us of our ‘radical interdependence’, master ancient and wise ways of leading and living, and support us through challenging times.
The Shamanu Earth-centered philosophies and practices strengthen the capacity to make contact with, learn from and be nourished by the energies of the land and come home to our true nature.
The Mentorship Practices
Dance, Movement Meditations, Chakra Breath processes, Voice-play, Earth, Fire & Water Ceremonies, Clarity Quest and Solo Nature Journeys are woven throughout the mentorship.
To heal the deep wounds caused by the illusion of separation requires that we drop below the constraints of the mind into the intelligence of the body and Nature as wisdom teachers.
Felt Awareness practices:
Trauma, societal indoctrination and patriarchal systems numb trust in one’s innate knowing. Woven throughout the Mentorship are Felt Awareness processes to ignite your inner Shaman. The one who knows the way to vital health, purpose and natural joy. It is never wrong!
Deep Ecology practices:
Personal transformation strategies and new paradigm thinking from modern science and ancient spiritual traditions are interwoven with storytelling, intentional sharing circles, and Earth rituals.
Integrated into all processes is a re-visioning of the fundamental questions that have shaped all cultures – ‘Who am I’?, ‘What’s important?’ ‘What is the role of the human, now?’, ‘What is the leadership of the new era?’,
The Shamanu core processes support the journey from the familiar inner terrain to one’s creative edge, where a more vital and authentic self awaits.
Embodied practices and community help to overcome emotional resistance and pitfalls that waste vital energy and prevent seeing one’s way forward into life-enhancing relationships, vocations, and societies. The circle of relationships lasts well past the Mentorship.
Moving through the profound shifts needed to live a full-filled and awakened life takes time. The 4-month format provides the space, consistency, tools, and support for the spiritual transformations needed to realign with your greater joy.
Within the power of the circle, we explore leadership from the inside out. Great joy and meaning come when you realize the unique gifts that are alive within you.
The Wild Wisdom of Wonder is an invitation into a passionate and mystical journey of empowerment, discovery, purpose, serendipity, miracles and pleasure.
“I feel a sense of connection and fulfillment that I didn’t know was possible. I have fallen in love with the earth again and have awakened to my purpose on this planet. I have never experienced anything so pure and real. My heart is overflowing with gratitude for this mentorship.” ~ Rhianna
