Shamanic divination training teaches different shamanic methods of accessing spiritual knowledge. In this context divination is not about reading the future, but rather seeking perspective from the spiritual world and learning ways to gain understanding concerning the hidden reasons behind situations.
One of shaman’s major roles throughout history is seeking, accessing, and sharing information from the spiritual world with their communities. Knowledge sought might concern healing an individual or the community, information on planting, medicines, the weather, or for spiritual growth. There is knowledge contained in every living thing, so the natural world also has a lot of information to share.
This class covers a variety of techniques that shamans have use for divination, so that you can find the ones that work for you. For some of the methods in class we will be doing this work for each other, so you can also come seeking answers to questions in your own life.
