I know we have been riding some very challenging and turbulent waves. And the natural flow of life will continue to bring us challenges that inspire us to really deepen our spiritual work. For clearly we cannot think our way out of or physically power through the personal and planetary initiation we are in. We are being asked to dive deep into the power of our inner spirit that has all the knowledge and strength to carry us through to the rebirth as to attune us to the nature cycle of death and rebirth that all living beings on Earth experience.
But we must learn how to live a new way of life filled with love, light, and the power of spirit. We have to correct the disharmonious patterns we have created in the collective field of energy.
There are no compassionate spirits or shamanic teachers who can do your personal work for you. But they can inspire you on ways to perform your own ceremonial work, join with others in your local and global community to do the same, and keep going deeper.
The practice of shamanism was gifted to humans by the compassionate spirits over 100,000 years ago to help them survive. And obviously we need the power of these universal and ancient practices to assist in the survival of life on this Earth.
I started teaching the practice of shamanism when I was 29, and I will be 68 in 2021. I am working with new formats so I can share teachings with the international community without being on the road 300 days a year as I did in the past. Teaching online classes have given the opportunity for people from all over the world to train with me.
I will keep teaching, just more locally and through online courses, summits, and lectures, through my writing and of course I will continue writing the monthly Transmutation News.
Studying long term with a local teacher where you can work within a bonded and supportive community is such a powerful way to be introduced to shamanic ways of receiving guidance, healing, and living a shamanic way of life. I have been training shamanic teachers since 2003. You will find an international list of brilliant local teachers I trained by visiting www.shamanicteachers.com. This site includes a list of shamanic practitioners I have trained if you are looking to work one on one with a shamanic healer.
Below you will see the workshops I have scheduled. Keep checking back as I add more to my schedule. Please take a look at the wealth of online classes I have taught that were recorded and can now be registered for and downloaded on your own timeline.

SHAMANIC JOURNEYING TO CONNECT WITH THE EARTH'S ELEMENTS AND OTHER NATURE ALLIES
On January 20 there will be a free call where I will be sharing some of the information I have been receiving in my own journeys of how to walk a new path into a higher dimension of consciousness. In my journeys I have been shown how to rise above the level of suffering many are experiencing now.
At first I was going to ask Isis if she would give a message to the global circle. But within our conversation she wanted to lead a recommitment and reconnection ceremony to Earth, Air, Water, Fire. The point of the ceremony is to start to embrace and immerse ourselves in our place of belonging.
At some point during this call I will merge with Isis and she will lead us in a powerful re-connection ceremony!
Nature is our greatest teacher and healer, and by learning her language, we learn how to survive and even thrive.
In all her beauty and knowledge of renewal, death, and rebirth, she holds what we need to know in order to navigate these difficult times — and to be filled with awe at the healing she provides.
On Wednesday, January 20 , I will help you discover how to cultivate deep, truly reciprocal relationships with the beings of the natural world... for your healing and theirs.
You can register here for Shamanic Journeying to Connect With the Earth’s Elements & Other Nature Allies: Find Healing, Wisdom & Belonging in Reciprocal Relationships With Spirits of the ‘Middle World’:
Discover how to step into a higher dimension of reality and promote healing by being with and talking to nature beings to experience the Middle World in a reciprocal way
Learn how a focus on technology versus ecology disconnects us from Nature and creates imbalances within ourselves and the Earth’s ecosystems — how, for example, can we address climate change while we’re disconnected from the elements?
Discover how reconnecting to our soul, our helping spirits, and Source is the key to thriving during these times
Discover how the power of love, along with our beliefs and intentions coupled with a deep connection to the natural world, can create healing results that appear to defy science
Join in a guided commitment ceremony — led by my shamanism teacher, Isis — to honor your deep relationship with the Earth elements within and around you
From our wise tree ancestors to nature beings of land, sea, and sky... to the elements, from crystals to water... you’ll discover how simply being with and learning to respectfully communicate with the natural world can teach you how to adapt to the many changes that occur in your own life.
More than anything, you will find out how you can help effect positive change — within yourself and for all of life’s beings.
SHAMANIC JOURNEYS INTO NATURE: CONNECT DEEPLY WITH NATURE SPIRITS TO EXPAND CONSCIOUSNESS & YOUR SENSE OF BELONGING TO THE WEB OF LIFE
A couple of years ago I taught my all time favorite online course to teach. This was a course on building strong relationships with nature. I decided to teach the course again. I will be teaching the course differently this time. Last time we mostly focused on emanating love and light with groups of nature beings.
This course will focus on learning from nature beings and the elements about how we can live and work together in community, how we are all interconnected and how we are caretakers of the Earth, simple ways we can make changes to create harmony between humans and nature. The level of illness people are experiencing show we are not nurturing the Earth or being nurtured by it. How do we correct this?
Of course we will have a lively Facebook to stay connected with our community. For creating stronger communities will be a theme of this course. And that is the strong point of my online courses is the community we create giving everyone a feeling of belonging.
By learning the language of Nature, we learn how to survive. It has taken human cultures thousands of years to learn the language of nature and how we are interconnected. We must create strong reciprocal relationships.
Without making lifestyle changes we will not see positive changes happening for all in the web of life. Shamans and mystics for tens of thousands of years have lit the way to work with powerful healing ceremonies to create true change and transformation. But we must increase the level of concentration, focus, and discipline needed to bring about positive change. The ancients say we can do this. But in today’s world the speed of life has increased to levels that have created a lot of stress and distraction. You cannot do remarkable spiritual work and be so distracted at the same time.
It is amazing how thousands of people who journey to the different species in nature keep getting the message that there is compassion for us as we grow into higher selves and evolve.
By communicating with multiple species, we have the ability to learn how to adapt to our current changes, honor and respect every being in nature, make necessary lifestyle changes, and learn how to design ceremonies that we can perform to be in service to the Earth.
In our seven weeks we will focus our work with communicating with life forms who have so many tools and help to offer us. And each week we will perform a different healing ceremony in behalf of places of the Earth that cause us deep concern.
Communicating with the beings of nature that live on the earth, the waters, and fly in the air, as well as with the elements themselves brings us deep wisdom at the same time filled with joy that comes from such a deep and precious connection.
I will also include how to bring children into the work.
I will of course send you registration information. But for now save the dates if you are interested. The seven-week course will start on February 2.
To get information for this course, sign up for the free session above SHAMANIC JOURNEYING TO CONNECT WITH THE EARTH'S ELEMENTS AND OTHER NATURE ALLIES. More details will be coming later.

ONGOING ONLINE COURSES
HEALING WITH SPIRITUAL LIGHT: The Shamanic Power of Transfiguration to Heal Ourselves, Each Other, and the Earth
I am so excited to share this opportunity with you. I have devoted so much of my teaching to the practices shared in this beautiful and powerful online course Sounds True filmed live at a retreat center in Estes Park. As we knew the course would be a future online course each day myself and the circle welcomed those in the virtual community who have joined us.
For anyone called to serve, we may find ourselves constantly wondering: “What can I do?”
You might wonder what you can do to change your conditions to create a better life, or to help your loved ones and your community, or take part in the healing of our planet.
Yet from the shamanic perspective and the perspective of wisdom traditions everywhere, who we are matters just as much as what we do.
I have spent more than two decades researching the practice of transfiguration, or “Healing with Spiritual Light.” Transfiguration isn’t about “doing” anything. The practice is to radiate our divine light, which is our true essence as spiritual beings. This seems like very simple work, but it is a profound shift in consciousness compared to our normal everyday awareness.
The idea that we can create change by just “being” in the beauty of our spiritual light is something that’s hard for our culture to understand. We are taught to be very outward-focused, and to trust results we can measure through our normal five senses.
Which is why I have scientifically measured the effects of transfiguration in her workshops. In every test, it was shown that transfiguration produces powerful and positive results in working with environmental toxins and healing people who were facing a physical challenge.
These amazing results are just one reason I am so passionate about sharing the work of transfiguration with the world. That’s why I have partnered with Sounds True to bring you this new online course:
Healing with Spiritual Light: The Shamanic Power of Transfiguration to Heal Ourselves, Each Other, and the Earth
In this 8-week course, you’ll experience:
Training in the practice of transfiguration for healing physical, emotional, and environmental toxins
Shamanic ceremonies for working with the elements, your ancestors and descendants, your spirit helpers, and more
Guidance for using your thoughts, words, and dreams to create genuine change
Support from a group of fellow travelers working together to bring healing light to ourselves, our communities, and our planet
I hope you’ll join this circle of healing as we work together toward creating a better world.
If you’d like to experience the power of these teachings for yourself, Sounds True is offering as a FREE introduction the first session of Healing with Spiritual Light.

I hope you will join us for this 8-week life-changing course Healing with Spiritual Light!
SHAMANIC JOURNEYING WITH THE SPIRITS OF NATURE: Building Strong Reciprocal, Healing Relationships with Animals, Trees, and Other Allies of the Middle World.
In this course I will focus on journeying in the Middle World to build up strong long term reciprocal relationships with nature beings – the beings that live on the earth, in the water, and live in the air. We will journey to become allies with the stars, moon, sun, and galaxies. This includes journeying to crystals and learning some healing methods.
The theme of this course is to build relationships filled with kindness where nature beings don’t just become allies for us, but we also become allies for them.
The path of shamanism is all about deepening relationship and about nourishing and protecting life.
When we learn the language of Nature we learn how to survive. We learn how to engage deeply in life and also how to become more conscious beings.
Imagine a world where both people and all the beings in nature consult with each other on how to live in harmony together and learn deep wisdom to share with each other. To add to this, imagine learning from both ancestor’s and descendant’s ceremonies for healing both ourselves and the planet. This establishes a beautiful and powerful connection with all of life that brings us into the role of being a co-creator.
Connect with whales that can send echoing sound messages to fellow pods miles away, informing them of a change in migratory patterns. Or the iguanas of the Galapagos Islands that can adapt their biology to the fluctuating environment.
And by discovering how to build a lasting relationship with our Middle World allies, we not only open to their wisdom, but to our own telepathic ways of connecting with these lifeforms –– from our favorite tree in our own backyard, to the birds that grace our parks, to the mountains and stars.
We also start to sense their compassion for us and the tumultuous evolutionary stage we’re in.
We will learn how to become a vessel for bringing through new teachings stories that emerge from our connection with other species and life forms. This will help us to rise up out of our limited perceptions and raise our consciousness.
I will also include how to bring children into the work.

SHAMANIC JOURNEYING FOR GUIDANCE AND HEALING by Sandra Ingerman (Evergreen)
Through a practice called shamanic journeying, you can seek and receive guidance and healing for yourself and others from divine compassionate spirits in the unseen realms.
If you’re interested in learning this powerful skill, you won’t want to miss a free, virtual event with Sandra Ingerman, world-renowned teacher of shamanism, called: The Healing Power of Shamanic Journeying: How to Access Inner Guidance from Helping Spirits.In the intro call I give a very detailed lecture on healing from shamanic perspective including power loss, soul loss, intrusions, and possession.
So just the free intro call has a wealth of information.
SHAMANIC JOURNEYING FOR GUIDANCE AND HEALING PART 2: PRACTICES FOR DIVINATION, COLLECTIVE BLESSING & HELPING OTHERS.
This course is a transformative 12 week course. The prerequisite for this course is taking Part 1 or being able to show you have taken a workshop on shamanic journeying.
Just some of the topics included in this course are how to journey for others and perform powerful but safe healing practices.
Please note: I do not teach advanced shamanic healing ceremonies online. I feel strongly participants need to sign up for a physical workshop with a teacher to learn such important work so that clients get the best help they need and deserve. But there are safe ceremonies I teach for those wanting to help another, a relationship, family, business, or a location on the Earth. I teach ways to connect more deeply with nature as shamans have done for tens of thousands of years.
By taking both Part 1 and Part 2 you will learn most of the material I teach in the Medicine for the Earth. These courses do not include what I teach in Healing with Spiritual Light. Each session ends with a beautiful and potent healing ceremony. There are many other topics covered such as journeying to ancestors and descendants to learn from them how we can be in service to the planet, how to work with people who are facing death and dying, and how to bring simple ceremonies into your community.
The shamanic journey is the art of using rhythm and intention to enter an altered state of consciousness in order to connect with the spiritual dimension of reality.
Here is your chance to experience Sandra's complete foundational training on shamanic practice in an unprecedented format. This six-session on-demand online video course will provide you with the essentials for integrating the spiritual insights and techniques of shamanism into your life, including:
The shamanic journey-how to enter a new state of awareness and open your perceptions to the spirit world Guidelines for interpreting the information you receive, improving your recall, and deepening your experience Your spiritual allies-guided journeys for making contact with your power animals, ancestors, and guardian spirits The Upper, Lower, and Middle Worlds-experience journeys into each of the three divisions of non-ordinary reality The shamanic approach to healing-how to make yourself a conduit for universal healing energy to benefit yourself and others "Seeing through the heart"-expanding your perceptions in real-world situations by connecting with the universal field Dealing with the ego-guidance for navigating the most common pitfalls of doubt and self-sabotage Your own journey style-how to dispel unhelpful preconceptions and learn to trust your unique way of receiving guidance and energy from the spirits Embodying wisdom-bringing your practice into your relationships, community, and every aspect of your life.

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."

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. Sandra Ingerman reserves the right to cancel any workshops or the participation of anyone, at any time for any reason. In such a case, fees paid in advance will be refunded.
