Reindeer Spirit Training
Over this weekend of shamanic work, you will open a spiritual relationship with the Reindeer Spirit: the sustainer of life, the abundance-bringer, and the protector and liberator of the life force and of our indigenous soul. You'll learn about the beautiful history of the reindeer as a spiritual figure in Europe and how she is relevant to us today in the modern urban environment. You'll link this beautiful spiritual force from northern Europe with other images of the Great Earth Mother, with all "antlered ones," and with other ideas of the Holy. Through drumming, shamanic journeying, ceremony-making, chant and shamanic trance dance, you'll form your own unique bond to the reindeer as a spiritual guide, protector, initiator, healer and blessor. You will be trained in how to use the rattle and voice to become "one who blesses." You will be assigned homework to do between the two weekends. (Males are also welcome to do this training!)

"I journeyed to the heart of the reindeer and found OVERWHELMING acceptance and love. I never expected such a tender encounter with the reindeer goddess or that I would cleave to her so completely. The Reindeer Goddess training changed my life radically. I can't thank you enough, Jaime, for so masterfully leading us through this initiation into Mystery." -PF
"This was a powerful initiatory experience for me. I always feel a deep void at this dark time of year, and this experience filled that void with celebration, community and meaning." -LS
You'll need to reserve your spot by paying in advance. You may drop out after the first workshop with a $150 refund. After that, no refunds are offered.
