Medicine Wheel Workshop Series Overview:
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.
1 Day Workshop - The Path of The Shaman:
Next 1 Day Workshop:
Saturday, November 10, 2018 (9am - 5pm, ending time approximate)
Taught by Jerri Doran
Contact Jerri at: 719-221-9103 or email@example.com for location, registration and/or information
During the course of this 1-Day Workshop, 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.
During this 1-Day Workshop in addition to learning more about shamanism, you will also be working within your chakra system to clear negative energies, do shamanic journeywork, and learn and do shamanic breathwork. We will also have a Fire Ceremony in which you will have the opportunity to work with your own intentions in a powerful way.
The 1-Day Workshop is a great opportunity for those who wish to explore and learn more about shamanism in general, but may not be sure that they wish to step forward onto this path. For those attending a 1 Day Workshop who decide that they wish to continue on the Medicine Path, a $50 gift certificate will be provided to use towards their "South Work" in the Medicine Wheel Program (first workshop in the "Walking in Beauty - The Path of the Shaman" workshop program). Note: It is not necessary to attend a 1-Day Workshop prior to beginning the Medicine Wheel Program (also called the 4 Directions). Energy Exchange for the 1 Day Workshop is $100.
SHAMANIC JOURNEY WORKSHOP
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.
ADVANCED SHAMANIC WORKSHOPS
Where: Swissvale, Colorado (just outside of Salida, CO.), and other locations. Energy Exchange for the Teachings is: $225 per session (Salida and Gunnison), unless noted otherwise. The workshops in the Denver area are $295 due to facility expense. Energy Exchange for shorter workshops is noted in individual listing (cash/check/bankcard/PayPal).
* Various lodging options including motels and camping are available in Salida, CO., Gunnison, CO. and in the Denver area, CO.
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.
4 DIRECTIONS REVIEW WORKSHOP:
In this workshop we will do a general review of the information and techniques covered in the 5 basic workshops (called the Medicine Wheel or 4 Directions Program). We will not be doing all of the techniques again, but intend to review, answer questions, etc. In some cases we may be doing the exercises again. As all of you who have completed this program already know, there is much material that has been covered. Energy Exchange is $195.
* Very Important: If you are attending one of these workshops be sure to bring all of your materials and handouts with you as we will not have handouts available.
* In order to make this a bit easier to attend, we are going to meet 2 days (longer both days).
New date will be available soon

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.
Feb. 23 & 24, 2019 (Sat. & Sun.: 9-5pm both days) - Swissvale, CO.

ONE DAY SHAMANIC WORKSHOP PRESENTER TRAINING:

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

2016 Ayllu Gathering in Colorado
We all enjoyed our time together at the Ayllu Gathering in Swissvale in August. Great conversation and great food were abundant! Many family members and friends were also able to join us, as well as quite a few folks from out of the area. Although our next Ayllu Gathering will be in the Summer of 2017 be sure to check for other events and happenings that may resonate with you. Information on Ayllu Events and Happenings is always included in the Ayllu Updates which are sent out by email. We always look forward to friends, family and community joining us for many of these events. If you are reading this website and are not on the Ayllu Email list and would like to be please contact us by email or phone.
Ayllu Jeep Trip - Salida, CO. area
A great time was had by all on the 2017 Ayllu Jeep Trip. We enjoyed exploring several different areas all within a few hours from the Salida, CO. area. The weather was beautiful and the leaves were beginning to turn. Aho! We will plan on another trip Summer 2018.
"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. At present there are about 400 wonderful souls in the Ayllu from throughout the country and further afield.
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.
