&lt;&lt;ONLINE&gt;&gt; INTRODUCTION TO SHAMANIC JOURNEYING
Sep
3
6:30 PM18:30

<<ONLINE>> INTRODUCTION TO SHAMANIC JOURNEYING

Tuesday, September 3, 2019
6:30PM - 8:30 PM PST

Shamanism is the oldest spiritual practice— anthropologists have found cross cultural evidence of the first shamans from over 40,000 years ago. Today, shamanic journeying suits the needs of our modern life; it is the path of direct revelation, and requires no outside authority or ideology. Shamanism gives us the tools to enter the spirit world and understand our place in the Universe so that we can reconnect to our own power.

The shamanic journey is the art of using drum and rattle rhythms with intention to enter into altered brain states to access the spiritual dimension of life. There, one can meet and speak to spirit animals, plant totems, ancestors, and even pets who have passed on.

Led by Mimi Young, shamanic medicine practitioner and teacher, you are invited to learn the basics around this safe, reliable, and effective practice to experience support, clarity, and lasting transformation. This popular course has been adapted to suit the format of an online study circle so that those outside of her Vancouver community can learn.

Learn core shamanic journeying, including:

  • How to visit various spirit realms

  • Meeting animal allies

  • Meeting other spirit allies

  • How to approach allies with questions

  • Have the opportunity to ask your questions relating to spirit allies and spirit travel

Supplies to have on hand:

  • Notebook and pen

  • Scarf / bandana / or eye cover

  • Rattle (optional)

  • A small Clear Quartz crystal (optional)

Investment: $40 USD. Note this Online Spirit Study will be 2 full hours rather than the conventional 90 minute course.

This event will be held via Zoom. If you cannot join LIVE, a replay link will be sent out within 48 hours afterwards so you can access the recording on demand.

Once you have signed up, Zoom login details will be emailed to you within 24 hours.

INTENSIVE COURSE: SHAMANIC ANCESTRAL CONNECTION
Oct
27
2:00 PM14:00

INTENSIVE COURSE: SHAMANIC ANCESTRAL CONNECTION

October 27, 2019
2:00PM-6:00PM PST

We are in relationship with our ancestors whether we are aware of it or not. Epigenetics (the study of heritable changes in gene expression) have concluded that the experiences, emotions, and beliefs that your lineage(s) have had remain in your own cellular memory - and can impact your life both positively and negatively.

In discovering, naming, and healing ancestral trauma and bloodlines, and in claiming and acknowledging the strengths and gifts of our own diverse family history, we can step into vibrant and whole levels of belonging and wisdom. We can become grounded in who we are as individual humans and our personal purpose within the backdrop of life.

Many cultures around the world value relationship with ancestors as an act of reverence of life and a way to be accountable to Earth and each other. For many in the West, this tradition has been deemed 'demonic', 'dangerous, or simply 'delusional', but this severed connection with conscious ancestral guidance can present wounds that play out generation after generation, as well as a sense of division (me vs them, us vs them mindsets).

Join Mimi Young, shamanic medicine teacher + ritualist, for a 4 hour course on Shamanic Ancestral Connection. This is an in-depth, intensive course where we will go over wisdom and well as have opportunity to experience ways to make ancestral connection. We will:

  • Discuss how our modern brain and gut contain access points to ancestral and cellular healing

  • Learn how to embark on guided and taught shamanic journeys to explore, learn about, heal from, and shift into a wider view of humanity and life, and can examine the various inheritance wounds we have and transform them into strengths.

  • Discover how to reconnect with beloved family members who have passed on via ritual, shamanic journeying, (non-entheogenic) plant medicine, and dream practises.

  • Accessing and expand your theta brain waves (where old experiences, memory, trauma, and belief are stored) to further support this empowering work through trance and shamanic art.

  • The New Moon date is intentionally selected as it’s near Samhain / Halloween / Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos), a potent time of the year when the veil is thinnest between this reality and spirit realms. 


Investment:
3 pricing tiers

  • Up to one month away - $149 (extra early bird)

  • One month to up to one week away - $188 (early bird)

  • 6 days or less from the day of - $220 (general admission)

SHAMANISM + TEA

SHAMANISM + TEA

In the beginning, tea was used in ritual offerings, eaten as a vegetable, and consumed as medicine. Moving through the Chinese dynasties, tea evolved from physiological and spirit medicine, expanded into an art form, and became a drink celebrated by all social classes. From a shamanic perspective, tea displays a rich connection to Earth, her elements, meditation and divination, and is connected to shape shifting.

DREAMS: ANALYSIS + INTERPRETATION
Jul

DREAMS: ANALYSIS + INTERPRETATION

Since the beginning of human history, dreams and their meanings have captivated people. From the ancient Chinese, ancient Egyptians and ancient Greeks, to more modern thinkers such as Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, the topic of dreams have provided intrigue and the desire to understand Mystery.

In shamanic work, dreams are seen as a land of boundlessness, where the impossible, nonsensical, and magickal become easily accessed. The work then exists for the dreamer to remember, understand, and bridge the wisdom from that mystery land to waking life.

  • You are curious about what your recurrent dreams mean and how their messages can enrich your life.

  • You would like to identify and learn from your shadow(s) and integrate into your consciousness

We will cover foundational wisdom and tips around dream work so you can begin the craft of interpreting your dreams. Accuracy and fluency will come from regular practise. What to expect from DREAMS: ANALYSIS + INTERPRETATION:

  • Mimi will share her personal experiences with dreams - from recurrent dreams to nightmares, from divinatory dreams to ones that provide messages about her body's needs and overall health.

  • Discover the 3 stages involved in dream work

  • Learn the key skills to analyze, interpret, and understand your dreams effectively

  • How to identify your shadow(s), and learning from the shadows via your dreams

THE I CHING + TEA CEREMONY: Tea and Foundations in the Ancient Chinese Oracle

THE I CHING + TEA CEREMONY: Tea and Foundations in the Ancient Chinese Oracle

SOLD OUT!

Tea and Foundations in the Ancient Chinese Oracle

Tea + tea ceremonies are meaningful practices found all around the world. In Chinese cultures, tea and the rituals surrounding tea go back beyond Buddhism, Confucianism, and Daoism, to Chinese shamanism, otherwise known as Wuism. Shamans and sorceresses would pick leaves in the mountains nearby temples, dry them, make them into tea, which were then used during meditation, divination, and sorcery. Tea is plant medicine.

It is from these same roots, that the I Ching (The Book of Changes), the oldest Chinese divination text and philosophical system was conceived. Said to be birthed and used from ~1150 BCE, the oracle still provides inspiration to faith, psychoanalysis, philosophy, agriculture, higher mathematics and quantum physics, law, art and literature.

Join shamanic medicine teacher and ritualist, Mimi Young of Ceremonie and experience the foundation of the I Ching, including the sacred synchronicities of numbers, Yin and Yang mysteries, and the elements according to ancient Chinese shamanism. Understand how these powerful, practical tools can be used to empower and enhance our everyday life. We will integrate the experience with a tea ceremony, led by Sara Jade Gooding of Dharma Temple with prompts by Mimi. Discover how tea is both a conduit and a container for the ancient mysteries of the sacred and the mundane.


Please note that there are 10 spots available for this event.

Investment: $65

Includes: Introduction to I Ching principles, take-home Companion Booklet containing key points written by Mimi Young, tea and other ceremony materials

PAST LIVES + SOUL RETRIEVAL SHAMANIC JOURNEYING
Apr

7:00 PM19:00

PAST LIVES + SOUL RETRIEVAL SHAMANIC JOURNEYING

SOLD OUT!

“The past is never ended; it isn’t even past.” -- William Faulkner

The past is not always in the past. Many who have journeyed understand that linear time doesn’t really exist, and that everything is happening in the now. This means that the individuals you were in other lifetimes may be active in your own self right now, played out in your daily interactions. If you have experienced certain themes, patterns and situations that continue to replay no matter what you do, this is an example of an unresolved past life that is living in you. These wounds can sabotage you in the present-day, prevent authentic intimacy, create strong aversions/triggers, or other forms of unfinished business.

When a past-life has found closure and healed, your soul in your present life has no need to continue to re-experience the same themes. Instead, there is peace and a sense of vitality.

Delving deeper in shamanic journeying as an exploratory and healing practice, you are invited to join Mimi Young, shamanic medicine practitioner and ritualist of Ceremonie, to access your past lives, receive insights, and clear wounds that stem from beyond this present life.

Learn intermediate shamanic healing techniques related to past lives, including how to:

  • Identify which issues + dynamics are from past lives

  • Access your pages within the Akashic Records

  • Travel to past / parallel lives

  • Form closure with a past / parallel self

  • Retrieve a fragmented soul back into your present self

By popular demand, this course has been edited to include those with shamanic journeying experience as well as those new to the practice. Mimi will provide guided instruction, modifications, and other knowledge towards attendees with varying experience.

Investment: $50 early bird (up to one week before event); $60 general admission

What to bring:

  • Notebook and pen

  • Scarf / bandana / or eye cover

  • Rattle (optional)

7:00 PM19:00

THE WHEEL: COMING ALIVE

This gathering will be centred around Coming Alive.

Inspired by the Solar Wheel of the Year, The Wheel is an opportunity to take part in the ancient and universally recognized tradition of following the seasonal cycle of the changing year, and to support and accelerate our path within that cycle. Harnessing the unique, shifting energy patterns of the seasons into the present moment can noticeably benefit our sense of well-being, our careers, and our relationships. It can help initiate positive change instead of being at the mercy of the fears around change. By truly experiencing the present, we are open to purposeful and prosperous living.

The Wheel at Werklab is a unique blend of movement, plant medicine and simple ceremonies, which are inclusive, spontaneous, and capable of bringing us empowered understanding. Through this gateway, we can break free of outworn defaults, damaging dogma, and restrictive concepts to generate fulfilling growth, exciting opportunities, and a more integrated self.

Each 2 hour gathering will include sharing on seasonal attunement, followed by an interdisciplinary experience of auric cleansing, yoga movement, breath-work, meditation, plant medicine, sound healing, and ending with suggested rituals to practise at home. Each gathering will be co-led by Chantal Russell, registered holistic nutritionist and yoga director of The Well on Bowen, and Mimi Young, shamanic medicine teacher and ritualist of Ceremonie.

THE WHEEL: DREAM ANEW

Join us for this instalment where the theme is Dream Anew.

Inspired by the Solar Wheel of the Year, The Wheel is an opportunity to take part in the ancient and universally recognized tradition of following the seasonal cycle of the changing year, and to support and accelerate our path within that cycle. Harnessing the unique, shifting energy patterns of the seasons into the present moment can noticeably benefit our sense of well-being, our careers, and our relationships. It can help initiate positive change instead of being at the mercy of the fears around change. By truly experiencing the present, we are open to purposeful and prosperous living.

The Wheel at Werklab is a unique blend of movement, plant medicine and simple ceremonies, which are inclusive, spontaneous, and capable of bringing us empowered understanding. Through this gateway, we can break free of outworn defaults, damaging dogma, and restrictive concepts to generate fulfilling growth, exciting opportunities, and a more integrated self.

Each 2 hour gathering will include sharing on seasonal attunement, followed by an interdisciplinary experience of auric cleansing, yoga movement, breath-work, meditation, plant medicine, sound healing, and ending with suggested rituals to practise at home. Each gathering will be co-led by Chantal Russell, registered holistic nutritionist and yoga director of The Well on Bowen, and Mimi Young, shamanic medicine teacher and ritualist of Ceremonie.

For December 5’s gathering, we will be exploring the power of dreaming as a creative tool to enliven and to envision. Harnessing the energy of Winter, this season is also likened to a time when the soul can respond to stirrings and nocturnal dreams. Through yoga movement, the use of contrast, and shamanic drumming, join us as we posture ourselves to experience boundlessness.

December 5, 2018— Dream Anew
January 30, 2019— Inviting Abundance
April 3, 2019—Coming Alive

Discover specific plant synergies that draw money, that brings ideal career opportunities, and enhance overall prosperity.

DECOLONIZING THE FEMALE

RITUALS TO RESTORE WORTH, PLEASURE, AND POWER

Do you know…

  • Why the third eye is so over-emphasized and the root and sacral chakras are so undermined in many spiritual practises?
  • Why until very recently, plant medicine has been dismissed as superstitious and quackery by science?
  • Why the horned goat and serpent are associated with darkness and evil?
  • Why so many of us relate to our menses with dread and disgust? (Hint - it can be the best week of our month!)
  • Why the first human was male, as told by many biblical myths?

The answers to these (and many others) will be discussed and how these perpetuated ideas have mis-defined or shrunken women, and as a consequence, have impacted our psyches and cellular memories. With Mimi Young, plant spirit medicine practitioner and founder of shamanic brand, Ceremonie, we invite you to an evening where we examine how these limiting beliefs of women have skewed our perception of our bodies and sexuality, of our worth, of our relationships, and of our careers. If you are seeking to develop and enhance your intuition, are feeling stuck or unsure, are wanting more self compassion and empowered transformation in your life, or are simply want to ‘return to your truest self’, this workshop is for you. Mimi will be taking us through conversations and experiences in plant spirit medicine, archetypal and symbolic healing, altar building, and shamanic journeying.

Investment: $55. Includes workshop materials, a warm reishi tea from Nectar Juicery, and Ceremonie Companion Booklet


Please bring: pen, notebook, eye cover or bandana, a pocket-sized crystal/stone, a rattle (optional)

Please note that the topic of the evening will be feminist by nature, but people of all genders are welcome / encouraged to attend.

SACRED SKIN + CYCLES

DIVINE SKIN, MOON BEAUTY, TOOLS + RITUALS

Your skin is a mirror of your inner world - physiologically, emotionally, and spiritually. By extension, the kind of relationship you have with your skin is an indication of how you relate with yourself as a whole. Do you know your skin’s personal needs and genuine expression? Did you know that your skin, being the body’s largest organ, is asking to converse with you through its conditions? With Mimi Young, plant spirit medicine practitioner, we invite you to an evening to develop a foundation based on today’s understanding of skin science, determine what your skin truly needs through face mapping and other tools, learn how to nourish it with plant medicine, form practical beauty rituals, and discover how to harness the Moon’s cycles so you can bridge your own internal landscape with your external beauty. We will end the evening with a powerful, group shamanic journey.

Investment: $60. Includes workshop materials, an elixir from Nectar Juicery, and Ceremonie Companion Booklet

Please bring: pen, notebook, a compact mirror (we will be learning how to face map!), eye cover or bandana, a pocket-sized crystal/stone, a rattle (optional)
