MEDICINE FOR THE EARTH GATHERING AND HEALING WITH SPIRITUAL LIGHT
October 7-11, 2015 (This class is full) Location: Joshua Tree Retreat Center in Joshua Tree, California Contact: Girvani Leerer email address: email@example.com phone: 510-649-9624
This training based on the information in Medicine for the Earth teaches how to transform personal and environmental pollution by learning how to transmute negative beliefs, attitudes, and energy which is generated by emotions.
The process continues with learning how to work in cooperation with helping spirits and the spirits of the land as well as getting in touch with our own internal divine nature to create healing and transmutation.
The training includes learning about working in cooperation with all the elements earth, water, air, fire. Other key elements and spiritual practices will also be explored which can be easily incorporated into daily life. These methods are necessary and helpful for transforming and transmuting environmental and personal toxins.
With spiritual practices and learning how to shift our consciousness we can add to all the brilliant environmental work going on today. But we must learn the power of integrating spiritual work into our daily lives. And this is the major theme of this training.
Participants will also take part ceremonies to transmute water and other substances as well as to transmute planetary problems. There will be a fire ceremony to help us manifest our visions.
In 2004 Sandra was invited by The School of Integrative Medicine at the University of Michigan to participate in a pilot research study to study the effects of the Medicine for the Earth work on people who suffered depression after having a heart attack. The study used a variety of standard physical and mental benchmarks to track the success of the program.
The conclusion of the published research study showed that a spiritual retreat such as Medicine for the Earth could be used to increase hope wile reducing depression in persons with acute coronary depression.
In this training you will learn what Sandra taught to her group in Michigan and how to teach the work to others.
Because the etiology of illness today is different from ancient times, our healing methods must be updated to deal with modern-day illness such as cancer and immune deficiency problems caused by environmental pollution.
Sandra will teach new methods of healing based on the Medicine for the Earth work that can be integrated into a shamanic healing practice.
The ceremonial work done as a group in collaboration with community and the spirits is truly a life transforming experience.
Prerequisite: There are no workshops required for this training. Experience with shamanic journeying is required. You can learn the practice of shamanic journeying through a book or from listening to a CD program. Please look at Books and CDs on the homepage of this site.

*New* FIVE-DAY SOUL RETRIEVAL TRAINING
October 18-23 2016 Location: Joshua Tree Retreat Center in Joshua Tree, California Contact: Sylvia Edwards for information and an application. email address: SoulRetrieval2016@sandraingerman.com
This training is residential and is based on Sandra Ingerman’s books Soul Retrieval: Mending the Fragmented Self and Welcome Home: Following Your Soul’s Journey Home and the CD program “The Soul Retrieval Journey” produced by Sounds True.
The five-day workshop is designed exclusively for those who wish to bring shamanic healing techniques into their practice with others, not for personal healing. Participants will be trained to work with the issue of soul loss, explore the experience of partial soul loss resulting from personal trauma and illness, and will learn how to track a person’s soul and return lost essence to that individual.
Particular emphasis will be placed on integrating this potent healing process in a modern day culture. Training will be given on developing communication skills that help the practitioner tell healing stories to their clients based on the spiritual information received in their journeys.
The course also focuses on life after soul retrieval… how to create a healthier life after healing has taken place. Individuals attending the training will perform and receive a soul retrieval during the course of the week, and are given extensive instruction on how to work with clients after a soul retrieval through the use of shamanic journeying, ritual, and ceremony. This work results in creating long term healing.
Success at shamanic journeying and good contact with power animals and/or teachers in non-ordinary reality is essential for participation. Please do not enroll if you are not confident with your journeying skills.

Why are we seeing a modern renaissance of shamanism-the oldest form of spiritual practice? According to Sandra Ingerman, it is because it is a "path of direct revelation." Shamanism provides powerful, effective tools to let you tap into the unseen world for insight and healing-requiring no outside authorities, intermediaries, or even beliefs. With 21st Century Shamanism, this respected teacher presents three live learning sessions to introduce you to the modern evolution of this ancient practice. Using techniques drawn from indigenous practice and adapted for widespread use in today's world, Sandra provides a hands-on introduction to:
* The shamanic journey-Sandra guides you in the experience of entering an altered state to access the world of spirit * Deep listening-harmonizing yourself with the natural world for increased energy and health * Dream work-guidelines for decoding the wisdom of the deeper self * Ceremony-rituals for dissolving our limiting beliefs, opening the door to our true potential * Blessing practices-how to become a positive force for change in the world
21st Century Shamanism includes live Q&A and guided practices with Sandra Ingerman.
THE POWER OF FOCUSED INTENT
A couple of years ago Sandra taught a course titled “Working in Community”. Participants met for a four-day workshop. We focused on how we can use our thoughts and words to change our personal life and be in service to all of life on the planet. We learned how to dream into being the world we wish to live in. And we looked to how we could use the practices of gratitude, blessings, and transfiguration to support our personal lives and also the community we created.
We then did two years of regular teleconferencing where Sandra lectured and led spiritual practices. And we created a yahoo group where we could share our experiences of doing this incredible work for each other and ourselves.
In January, 2012 Sandra started a six-month online course that was based on the Working in Community course. Once a month for six months she taught a live session where she lectured on material and lead spiritual practices to help anchor the work. There is also a forum that Sandra is a part of where we can share our experiences of keeping up with the practices.
The intention will be to use spiritual practices to help ourselves but also make a commitment to radiate light and send blessings to all in the course. And we will continue to share with each other over the six months on the online forum created by Sounds True. In this online course we will create a virtual community committed to creating the inner landscape needed to give solid results in the outer world. We will learn to concentrate our thoughts and words so that we can produce our desired goal. And we will work together in full support of each other so that each person’s goals are exponentially met by the group’s energy. For information and to purchase this course, click here.
