TWO-YEAR SHAMANIC TRAINING & APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM
(New program will begin in Spring of 2020 -
Contact Gogo Gretchen if interested)

Prerequisite for this program is a working knowledge of shamanic journeying
and personal shamanic work with Gogo Gretchen or another approved practitioner

Ancestral Wisdom’s two-year training was created to provide you with experiential initiations and rituals of the ancient ways of the shaman. Gogo Gretchen is a fully initiated sangoma/traditional healer from the Zulu lineage. She was “called” by her Ancestors (Spirit Guides) to train (itwasa) in Southern Africa. Gogo Gretchen has completed traditional training in Africa and graduated in traditional African ceremonies. Although this two-year program is not an African training, and you will not be a sangoma at the end of it, the wisdom and perspective of the sangoma will be shared throughout the two years. Gogo Gretchen's mentoring will reflect the ancient wisdom of the sangoma: surrender, humility, respect, community, ritual, oneness.

CHAKRA BALANCING FOR VIBRANT WELL-BEING







Chakras are our energy centers. They are the openings for life force to flow into and out of our aura. Their function is to vitalize the physical body and to bring about the development of our self-consciousness. They are associated with our physical, mental and emotional interactions.

These 7 energy centers also carry the subconscious limiting beliefs that can keep us from fully claiming our health and well-being. When we connect with each center to reveal these old patterns and beliefs, we can release them and allow new awareness and transformation into our life.

Over a period of eight months we will focus on one chakra per month, clearing ancestral and karmic issues and releasing subconscious limiting beliefs, creating the opening for transformation and co-creating a new paradigm for ourself and loved ones. We will use a variety of shamanic techniques including art, music, drumming, and dancing to explore each chakra center. You will also be expected to continue working on each center at home between sessions.

The current climate of chaos and uncertainty affects all of us, creating uncertainty and confusion about the future. In this class we will connect with our Lower World and Upper World compassionate spirit allies for the purpose of receiving insight and guidance for healing ourselves and Mother Earth.

Journeying is the foundational tool for shamanic study and healing and provides the passageway that has been used for centuries to obtain information from other dimensions, realms, and realities. Through the journeying process, you can receive information, knowledge and wisdom which you can utilize for solving problems, gaining clarity about life’s circumstances, or simply to build your awareness and understanding of the different worlds beyond. Journeying is a perfect way to learn what direction is needed in your life to facilitate wholeness.

This is an experiential class where we will enter non-ordinary reality using the shamanic journey to receive direction. In this monthly journeying class we will connect with our Lower World and Upper World compassionate spirit allies for the purpose of healing ourselves and our communities.

RE-IMAGINING YOUR STORY: OPENING YOUR HEART TO EXPANSION










In the Dagara system in Burkina Faso, Africa, 2019 is a Mineral Year. A mineral year is about remembering who we are and why we are here. Our bones hold the "stories" of our lineage through our DNA. The minerals of the earth hold the ancient wisdom of Earth's creation and the history of all that has occurred during the earth's transformations. What old stories are relevant for today and can help you move forward in a positive way? Stories that we can benefit from remembering and sharing? It's also important to look at the old stories we tell ourselves that are outdated and need to be reimagined. How can we learn from the past to create a better future?

What do you long for? Is it time to change jobs, receive training in an area that interests you, move to a new place, or end a relationship in your life that no longer serves the highest good? What is working well? What is not? What old stories about yourself do you want to release? Listen with your heart. Discover joy again. 

In this one-day workshop, join Gogo Gretchen in an experiential journey as we explore our personal and collective stories. Using guided journeying, meditation, art, collage, ritual and journaling we will connect with nature to go deeply into what story you are ready to release and the new story you are ready to create.

WHEN: Saturday, March 9, 2019
WHERE: Pine Manor, 32840 Ortega Hwy, Lake Elsinore, CA
FEE: $155 (pre-payment required)

No prerequisites required

"It's all a matter of perspective. If we are able to see past our limited perspective to the possibilities that await us. The human heart and mind have unlimited potential! We must become dreamers!" ~ Gogo Gretchen
