Hawaiian Shamanism Training, Level 1

Stewart Blackburn

This workshop is for those people who want to understand how potent their thoughts and feelings are and how they can powerfully channel them to many useful purposes. During the course of this week we will learn how to manage our vibration for maximum effectiveness, discover the importance of constant self-love, use these feelings to change personal reality, and enjoy higher states of Consciousness.
This training is intended to prepare you to use self-love and self-empowerment in your own healing and to help others move from their wounds to embracing their own personal joy. There are ten modules that include various healing techniques in working in the non-physical realms both as a Shaman and as an adventurer, and finding the ecstasy of your own center of power.

In this workshop you can expect to expand your range of feelings, deepen your awareness of both power and pleasure, connect more deeply with Spirit, and challenge your ideas of who you are.
