Do you feel drained of energy when you’re near certain people or places? Are you an “energetic sponge” who absorbs disturbing emotions of sadness, fear and anger from those around you? Learn to stop this power loss! This class covers everything from practical, down-to-earth advice to mystic lore about energetic protection. Learn how to ground your energy; identify your etheric, emotional and astral bodies; remove energetic blockages and intrusions; examine and transform unconscious intentions and core beliefs that may be opening you to energy loss; cleanse and invigorate your body’s major energy centers (chakras); work with crystals; and find your Power Animal and other helpful spirit guides to help protect you. We will practice techniques such as breathing, visualization and simple body movement and experience how they help us shift energy. This seminar is 8 hours;  4 weekly sessions of 2 hours each, as well as readings, assignments and discussion with instructor and fellow students through an online student forum. Required reading: The Psychic Pathway by Sonia Choquette. Cost: $180/$150 Early Registration (includes books for required reading).

This is one of four seminars in Level 1 of Life Force Arts Shamanic Training, a contemporary form of shamanic practice. The four seminars in Level 1 are: Energetic Protection, Shamanic Journeying, Lessons of the Wheel, and Sensing Spirit. You can start Level 1 with any of the four seminars. No prerequisites.
