During the course of this workshop series you will learn basic information about "Shamanism" including the origins of "Shamanism" and "Shamanism" today. You will learn how the Shaman perceives and interacts in his/her world. You will also learn about Peruvian Mythology as well as the Inca Prophecies. As the prophecies foretell we are entering into a time of great shifting and change. The Hopi say we are entering into the 5th World, the Inca call it the 5th Sun and we speak of how we have moved into the 5th Dimension. The Inca Elders have prophesized a time of great upheaval and change with the promise of a "Golden Age" and a new kind of human - "Homo Luminous". As we move into this "Golden Age" we must step out now from behind our rocks and hiding places and begin the process of truly knowing ourselves and "becoming". We are who we have been waiting for. We are those new humans.
As you begin to walk The Medicine Path you will experience many rites of passage. The emphasis being on your own personal experience. You will work with your luminous energy body and begin the process of knowing yourself and learning to live consciously and in balance. You will begin to shed your past and your programming, connect with Helping Spirits and Guides, experience Shamanic Journeying, participate in Ceremony and Ritual, learn Shamanic Breathwork and learn powerful methods to work with your own energy and to assist others. You will also begin the process of assembling your own Healing Mesa (Sacred Medicine Bundle).
Over the course of these 5 weekend classes, you will receive traditional shamanic initiations, and you will also be gifted with the Munay - Ki Initiations, which are rites of passage and initiation into the Medicine Way in this tradition. They include the Healer's Rites, Bands of Power, Seer's Rites, Rites of Time to Come and Spirit Rites.
If you are interested in this workshop, contact Ginger or Dale as soon as possible, as there is preparatory work that needs to be completed before beginning the workshop. Due to the intensity of this work, class size is limited.

SHAMANIC JOURNEY WORKSHOP
If you would like to be notified about Journey Groups and Events that we are offering in Colorado, and in other locations, please contact us by phone or email (see contact Info.).
Whether you have never experienced Shamanic Journeying before or are an experienced journeyer, please join us for an opportunity to learn about and experience "Shamanic Journeying" and learn more about Shamanism. A Shaman is a type of Medicine Man or Woman especially distinguished by the use of journey work to access other dimensions/worlds otherwise known mainly through myth, dream, or near-death experiences. They work with the unseen world to affect healing and to access information that is of use to themselves, others, and tribal or community groups. The practice of Shamanism is practiced in all cultures of the world. During these workshops we spend time discussing basic information about shamanism, shamanic journeying, working with protection and installing a protective shield, as well as discuss and answer other questions that the group may have. We also learn to create Sacred Space and learn and experience Shamanic Breathwork. The purpose of the "Journey Workshops" is for each participant to develop a relationship with their own Helping Spirits, Guides and Angels, and learn skills that will allow you to continue doing journeywork on your own to obtain information, and effect your own healing. If you are interested in attending one of these workshops, or arranging for one in your area, please contact Ginger or Dale.

There have been some interesting things happening during our time together with everyone in the workshops. We are finding that, in most cases, we are needing much more time to discuss and share together. This has meant that the workshops in general, are ending later. We feel that this is a reflection of the times that we are in, and our need to share together. Another development is that we realized that there are some additional advanced techniques, that we had not included in any of the Advanced Workshops. Therefore, we have added in an Advanced 3 Workshop (see description). As you are aware, we are always open to shifting and adding things in within the Advanced Groups, as situations arise. Going forward, Advanced Workshops will include at least 2, but usually no more than 10 students, so that we can provide more individual attention. For us, if is extremely important, in all of the Advanced Workshops, that we have an even number, as so much work is done together in pairs. We ask that you only sign up if you are certain that you will be able to attend. Our goal is to be Spirit Guided as to how to best share the information and techniques that we have learned, and continue to learn, with those who have interest. As with all of the workshops we facilitate, we continue to share new material and techniques. You are always welcome to take any of our workshops more than one time, to receive additional training, fine-tune the techniques you have learned, and of course receive powerful healing work yourself.
The Advanced Workshops are geared more towards those of you who wish to work with others, either in a professional capacity and/or with friends and family. There is an increasing need, for those who are able / willing to be of assistance to others, during these times that we are now in.
* Please note: Ending times are very approximate for all of our workshops, as we never know the questions, issues and time frames that will be required, for each group to have the experience that is needed by them.
1 DAY JOURNEY WORKSHOPS (OPEN TO ALL EXPERIENCE LEVELS):
This workshop is open to anyone, within the Ayllu, who would like to spend some additional time fine tuning and developing more comfort/confidence in their journey work, or would simply like to enjoy doing journey work together. Many have told us that they would really like to spend more time doing journey work, outside of the workshops. During our time together we will do both Lower and Upper World Journeys and spend time discussing and answering questions about journey work in general. We will also do some Middle World (Kay Pacha) journey work, and enjoy some other experiences together. Energy Exchange for these workshops is $75, unless otherwise noted.
* New dates will be available soon.

This workshop is for those of you who have completed all of the Advanced 1 and 2 workshops. In this workshop you will learn how to perform "Hucha Mikhuy", in a safe manner. "Hucha Mikhuy" is the shamanic eating and digesting of heavy energy. This technique can benefit your client greatly. It can be done in several different fashions, and is known by different names. It is extremely important when doing "Hucha Mikhuy" that it is done in a way that ensures that you (the shaman) retain none of the heavy energies that you are removing from your client. We will also show you ways to work with the elements (in particular Fire and Water) to assist your client in the healing process. Time permitting, Ginger will also show you how she approaches working with a client. As with all of the workshops we teach, we are always fine-tuning the information & techniques to be included

BEYOND BEAUTY: A PATH TO ENLIGHTENMENT:
Class is taught by Dale Lee. Enlightenment has been known by many different names: Cosmic Consciousness, Self-Reallization, God-Realization, Liberation, Awakening, and more. It is a mystical state because it seems to be emanating from the mystery of being, beyond our everyday awareness. It is rare to find in this world, yet it is a very sane and grounded way to be in the world. The enlightened state is experienced as an all-encompassing perception of the oneness of all of life. It is the awareness that we, humanity, are all one. This workshop blends elements of Peruvian Shamanism, Kundalini Yoga, and American Mysticism to help you continue on your Path of Enlightenment. I will be showing you a path to attain it, without having to live in a cave for two years. With a combination of breathing exercise, prayer, and several simple but powerful techniques, you will have the opportunity to safely awaken your Kundalini, continue to raise your consciousness, deconstruct your ego, achieve the Still-point, and balance the emotional swings that cause the suffering in your life. The goal being Enlightenment, while living and thriving in this world. Energy Exchange is $150. Must have completed Walking in Beauty Advanced 1A.
Aug. 16 & 17, 2014 (Sat. & Sun. 9-5pm both days) - Swissvale, CO.
Oct. 25 & 26, 2014 (Sat. & Sun. 9-5pm both days) - Rio Rancho, NM.
SHAMANIC MENTORSHIP PROGRAM:
As we have been approached by a number of students, desiring to commit to being of service, as a Shaman, to others, we are designing a program, that may resonate with some. Participation will include attending 6 scheduled meeting dates (see scheduled dates below), and monthly conference calls, during months we do not meet. Curriculum will include doing an in-depth review of techniques, discussing situations that have occurred with the work you are doing with others, clearings of buildings and property, clearing and energizing water sources, despacho ceremony for others, and doing ceremony and journey work (those in group will conduct these for the group) with others. One optional class (6th Meeting) will be totally devoted to spending time explaining and performing the Munay-Ki Initiations. "Mentorship" is for those with a serious commitment to working with clients, and /or friends/family, and being of service within their community. Prerequisite for joining the Mentorship Program is Advanced 4. Energy Exchange is $225 per meeting, this includes scheduled group conference calls. Conference Call dates will be determined at our first meeting date. Please make sure that you are able to attend all meetings, prior to enrolling. We are looking forward to time spent together with those wishing to step forward in this way.

ONE DAY SHAMANIC WORKSHOP PRESENTER TRAINING:
This program is designed for those who wish to teach One Day Shamanic Workshops which would be listed on the website and
"Ayllu Updates". The ideal candidate for this program would have completed all workshops, including the first 5 Mentorship Workshops, and be working actively with clients, and be conducting ceremony and journey groups. This program is explored individually with those who have interest, and is not designed for those who wish to teach longer duration shamanic workshop programs.
Upon completion of this workshop program (usually two weekend workshops) you will have developed, using an outline provided in the class, your teaching materials for a One-Day Shamanic Workshop.
Classes are scheduled individually with those in this program
ANNUAL GATHERING FOR ADVANCED STUDENTS (scheduled by individual groups):
Often, we are asked "So what happens after I finish all of my Advanced Classes"? With this in mind we have determined to Annual Gatherings, for those Advanced Students who wish to get together, to re-connect and work together with each other, giving and receiving work. As we are each aware, as we move forward on our path, we become more and more particular as to who we wish to receive healing work from. Our desire, is to provide a safe, and comfortable space, and the needed supplies, etc., for those of you who wish to come together to give and receive needed work. We may also be adding in some new material, techniques, will do some journeywork, etc. This workshop is meant to be somewhat unstructured, so as to evolve into what each group wishes to work with, and experience together. We will, of course, spend time together sharing experiences, and discussing any topics/concerns/etc. that any in the group may have. Due to suggestions from within the Ayllu, this will be a 2 day workshop (Saturday & Sunday). If you are coming from a distance, you may wish to stay and enjoy the area, or visit with each other, after wards for a day or two. As always, we will continue to fine tune this as we receive input from everyone. Energy Exchange will be $125 (cash/check/bankcard/PayPal).
Dates will be scheduled with those workshop groups/individuals who have interest (Sat: 9-5pm & Sun.: 9-5pm)
Contact us if you would like to join the next scheduled group
Watch for upcoming dates for Full Moon Ceremonies at our home in Swissvale, CO. (just outside of Salida - call for directions). The Full Moon is a very special time to come together. In addition to doing our own intention work (with light arrows) during ceremony, we also seek to connect with, and be in right relationship with, all that is. This includes others doing ceremony work during this time, as well as the spirits of nature, and the unseen world. As we all share a collective consciousness, it is important to be in "ayni" (right relationship with all) and to live our lives in "munay" (unconditional love). When attending ceremony plan to arrive at least a few minutes before we begin, as once we create Sacred Space no one else will be able to join us. If you have a rattle or a hand drum please bring it with you. There will be rattles and drums available for those who do not have their own. Be sure to wear clothing and shoes suitable for outside and bring a flashlight. All are welcome! There is no monetary exchange for this event. Be sure to call first if the weather is questionable. If you have questions please contact Dale or Ginger at: 719-539-5370.
Saturday, May 10th at 5:30pm - Inside Fire Ceremony at Ginger and Dales home in Swissvale (open to Ayllu Members, Friends, Family and community) - call for directions and/or more information

Sunday, Sept. 28th - Colorado Ayllu Jeep Trip over Weston Pass - For those of you who have interest we are putting together a jeep trip over Weston Pass. It is a fairly easy 4-wheel drive road. We will start at the Walmart Parking Lot (Salida) at 9:30am, go through Fairplay, up over Weston Pass, and come down the other side near Leadville at about 4pm (ending time approximate). This is a very scenic drive. We will stop for lunch at a lake on top, or perhaps along the stream on either side. We will not be taking any major hikes along the way, but will of course stop to enjoy and walk around places as we go. A 4 wheel drive or high clearance vehicle (with decent tires and a skid plate) would be needed for this. If you are interested in joining us, but do not have a vehicle that would work, jeep rentals are available in Salida (Anderson Motors, Hwy 50, Salida 719-539-3088) or in Buena Vista (BV Jeeps 719-395-4418) starting at about $125+ per day for a jeep that would fit 4 people plus stuff. Be sure to contact Ginger or Dale at: 719-539-5370 if you have any questions and/or plan to join us.
Saturday, June 21st from 11am - 5pm - Cheryl and Marty Ryder are hosting an Ayllu Open House in Los Lunas, New Mexico (about a half hour South of Albuquerque). Ayllu Members as well as friends and family are invited to join us for an hour or two, or all day. As this is a potluck please bring your favorite dish or munchies. This is a wonderful way to enjoy meeting other folks in the workshop groups, as well as friends and family members.

* We will also have a Fire Ceremony at 6pm on June 21st (be sure to arrive by 5:45pm if you are attending ceremony)
We all enjoyed our gathering this past September in Corrales, NM. Thank you Jean for opening your home. I know that all would agree that, as always, it was wonderful to enjoy time together, visiting with each other, and also meeting and enjoying time with the friends and family who also attended. As our Ayllu continues to grow, we are also able to enjoy time together with those who travel from other places in the country, to be at the gatherings. There was surely something for everyone at this gathering. We also enjoyed wonderful "Sacred Shopping", visiting the Meditation Room (for all of you who wish to bring a sacred item next time: crystals, crystal skulls, other sacred items, etc.), please know that we will all enjoy having them be a part of the wonderful energy at each of these gatherings. And a big "Thank You" to everyone who brought all of the many wonderful munchies & appetizers, they were very much appreciated by all!
"Ayllu" is a Peruvian word for a group such as a family, community or a village. Each of us are part of several different Ayllus. The group that you are working through the workshops with, are an Ayllu. It also applies perfectly to the even larger group that we are becoming. This group includes all of you who are currently walking this Path.
These gatherings are a wonderful opportunity to visit with others who are also walking this Path. With all of us having very busy schedules, we know that not everyone will be able to attend each time. We also have many Ayllu members who do not live in the area who we hope will be able to attend.
For more information about "Ayllu Gatherings", including directions, please contact Ginger at: (719) 539-5370. If you are not already receiving an email copy of the "Ayllu Update" please contact Ginger so that we can add you onto the list. The email update contains additional information about upcoming Advanced Workshops.
