Learn to heal by removing misplaced energy from clients.  Shamanic extraction is powered by a connecting to healing spirit allies.  This makes it a potent healing method for removing blockages, and other energy that is effecting a client.  The shamanic method can be used in a complementary ways to Reiki and other healing methods.

In this workshop, you will be taught to fill your own body with positive energy, which aids in the process of removing stuck energy from the client, and keeps the energy you remove from entering you.  You will be taught how to recognize where energy is stuck, and the process for safely removing it from a client.

This class also raises your awareness of how energy can be stored in the body.  While it will teach you how to heal using shamanic extraction, this awareness can improve how one manages one’s own energy.

  • A journal/notebook and pen to write down what is taught in the class.
