Hours: 14

Personalized, shamanically "worked" ceremonial tools are a necessity for any powerful reliable shamanic practice. In this two-day class we will build the two most important "tools of the trade", a drum and a rattle.

The drum will be a Native American style, hand held hoop drum. We will be using elk raw hide for the drum head and maple drum hoops. Drum beaters will also be built using deer skin and bamboo. If you desire, Gwilda will shamanically attune your drum to your personal birth cord.

The rattle head will be made of elk raw hide. Various furs and leathers will be available for decoration. There will also be an assortment of traditional objects to put inside and give your rattle its voice. We will cover in depth shamanic "working" of sacred tools, a skill that then can be applied to any other tools you care to create in the future.

All tools needed, will be provided. There will be a materials fee which covers both the drum and rattle.

Burning Questions

Instructor: Gwilda Wiyaka DD CSI
Hours: 7
Cost: TBA
When: Next dates TBD
Prerequisites: None

During these uncertain times it is no longer reliable to base our decisions on the outcomes of the past as our future is becomingly increasingly unprecedented.

Have you ever wished you could find accurate answers to those burning questions in order to more consciously and successfully direct your life?

There is nothing more empowering than consistent, reliable, personal access to spiritual information. This experiential workshop is designed to teach the lay person or those with some shamanic experience the ancient method of entering the shamanic journey trance in order to find their own answers. Other reliable methods of divination available to us in our everyday lives will also be covered.

Time will be spent on interpretation and basic understanding of the metaphors of the shamanic journey as well as traveling with your power animal.

SamhainAdvanced Manifestation Samhain and The Battle of the Evil Fomorians

The time of year has once again arrived when the veil is the thinnest between worlds. This is the time when our normally soft spoken gentle shamanic healers strap on their weapons, let out a shrieking battle cry and go to war to protect their people from the ravages of the Evil Fomorians.

When old wishes, intents and dreams that never came to fruition threaten to hold our personal power hostage, these brave souls risk life and spiritual limb to rip asunder the Fomorian bindings that tie up our energy and power to create.

This year, the last Samhain before 2012, promises to be the most violent battle yet. For this reason Path Home and Gwilda Wiyaka are putting out a call to all of our shamanic friends that have previously stood with us in battle to take the work to another level.

This could well be the battle that ends all battles.

Only the brave need apply.

Participation in the Battle of the Evil Fomorians will be restricted to the participants of Advanced Manifestation Samhain (sow-een or sow’-inn). These powerful practitioners will become the “Special Ops” (Special Operatives) of the shamanic world.

Do you have all the right stuff?

Battle of the Evil Fomorians

Location: TBA

Prerequisites: Lower World Shamanic Journey or Upper World Shamanic Journey, and Manifestation Samhain or permission from Gwilda

Samhain is a seasonal Celtic holiday during which the power of the West is honored.  The West is the season of fall, harvest, sorting and discernment. It is the time to dismantle what no longer serves freeing up the energy to manifest what we choose for our future.

This advanced class is designed for students interested in delving more deeply into the necessary destruction involved in true manifestation.  We will unearth profound understandings enabling us to free up the personal power that has been tied up in old wishes, intents and dreams that never came to fruition.

Traditionally, during this time, shamanic practitioners gather together to break up energies that cause disruption and misfortune.   The dismantling of the conscious and unconscious  energies of unfinished projects, half-created dreams and plans helps to  create clear space in which to manifest for the following year. This is an ancient responsibility to one’s tribe, embraced in some form by shaman of all cultures.

The evening of the program we will perform an advanced form of the ancient ritual (generously brought to us by Tom Cowan's teachings) "The Battle of the Evil Fomorians".

Due to the skill set required, only those that have participated in the Advanced Manifestation Samhain class will be invited to join us in this powerful ceremony for and in responsibility to our people.

Our culture has been so long without shamanic healing that most clients haven’t a clue what ails them or how to make sense of soul retrieval once they have had one.  Furthermore, they often are so identified with the defense mechanisms developed to compensate for soul loss that a form of identity crisis may follow the healing.

The drum is the best friend of the shamanic practitioner.  Drumming grounds us, takes us on our journeys, focuses healings and integrates spiritual work into our bodies.  The trick is...playing it and walking at the same time!

This class is designed with that very dilemma in mind.  The side benefits are an unexpected left brain – right brain integration and a stretching of what we think is possible for us rhythm-wise.

"Fragmentation and the resulting rift in our personal space create specific recurring patterns and events that run like threads through our lives." -Gwilda Wiyaka

During this advanced 3-day residential workshop we will explore a powerful technique, developed by Gwilda over her years as a shamanic practitioner. It involves a unique method of journeying into life patterns to track down soul loss and hidden judgments and enchantments that cripple our lives.

Time will be spent on honing our middle world journey skills to better "read" a client or ourselves in order to locate clues and insights into soul loss and the resulting compensations. This information, in turn, can be used to help integrate soul parts and better understand the unconscious use of personal energy.

We will work on empathic listening skills as well as spiritual counseling methods that are the hallmark of this powerful work.

By popular demand, this 2-day nonresidential class will prepare the shamanic student to deal with birth, dying and helping spirits cross the veil after death.
