Sacred Ways Colorado

Workshops & Events



Workshops and Classes are taught by Ginger and Dale Lee at their home just outside of Salida, CO., as well as other locations.  Jerri Doran teaches the Denver Area Workshops with us, as well as One Day Workshops.  Don Rollins teaches the Gunnison, CO. workshops with us.  Clarke St. Dennis teaches "Plant Medicine: An Introduction for Mesa Carriers".  Ginger and Dale live next to the Arkansas River in the beautiful Bighorn Sheep Canyon.  Jerri and Clarke also live and have active shamanic practices in the Salida area.  Don Rollins lives in Gunnison, CO. where he also has an active shamanic practice.  He is also a Sacred Pipe Carrier in the Lakota Tradition and has led Sweatlodge Ceremonies and Sundance for over 25 years.  For those who attend the weekend workshops there are a variety of lodging options available in each location, including motels and camping areas.  Information is provided upon registration.

We offer a Medicine Wheel Workshop Series which meets 5 times, usually about once every 2 months.  These workshops are very intense and include much personal work, as well as work with others.  They are designed to be experiential, and you will learn powerful techniques to work with energy, your own and others.  Each time we meet you will receive a number of Initiations and Rites.  In addition you will learn about Shamanism, The Inca Tradition and The Prophecies of the Times to Come.  If you embark on this path, The Medicine Path, it will change how you see your life and engage in this earth walk.  You will begin to see everything in your life, and around you, through a different set of eyes.  This work is life - changing.

In addition to the Medicine Wheel Workshop Series, we teach a wide-range of Advanced Workshops (see below).  Be sure to visit the "Photo Gallery" section to see an assortment of pictures (website pictures are in no particular order) from those attending workshops.  In the Salida area we conduct a Monthly Full Moon Ceremony, which is open to all in the community (see below).  For those who are working through the Medicine Wheel Workshop Series, or have completed it, we schedule an "Ayllu Gathering" once or twice a year  (see below).  The "Ayllu Gathering" provides us all with an opportunity to visit and share our experiences on The Medicine Path, as well as  practicing techniques, and enjoying ceremony together.  Many of the "Ayllu Gatherings" are also open to friends and family who wish to attend.  We all really enjoy having the opportunity to meet and visit with all of those who are able to come.

Ginger and Dale, as well as Jerri, Clarke and Don,  are each initiated Kuraq Akulleqs (4th Level Shaman Priests and Wisdom Keepers) in the Inca Tradition of the Andes.  They work with both the Right Side (Ordinary World) and Left Side (World of Magic & Transformation) of the Peruvian Mesa, and have been doing energetic healing work for over a decade.

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.

SHAMANIC JOURNEY WORKSHOP
 

___________________________________

Shamanic Journey

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.

 

                                                                                                                                                                             

UPCOMING 1 DAY SHAMANIC JOURNEY WORKSHOPS ( open to all ):
 
This workshop is open to all Ayllu Members, as well as friends, family, and community.  Depending upon the makeup of the group, we will spend time talking about journeying and do Lower and Upper World Journey Work together.  We will also have a Fire Ceremony so that you can begin working with your intentions in a powerful way.  Energy Exchange is $100.  Contact Jerri Doran for location and information at:  719-221-9103 or jerri.shaman@gmail.com.

ADVANCED SHAMANIC WORKSHOPS


Advanced Workshops are taught in the Denver area and in Swissvale, CO. (just outside of Salida).  Energy Exchange for the Teachings is:  $225 per session (Swissvale) and $295 in the Denver area due to facility expense.  Energy Exchange can be made by cash, check, bankcard or PayPal.


* Various lodging options including motels and camping are available in  Salida, CO., Gunnison, CO. and in the Denver area, CO.

 ___________________________________



The Advanced Workshops are generally scheduled from 9am - 5pm on Saturday and Sunday.  Of course ending times can be later as sometimes the work that is done may take longer.  Each group also enjoys time together to share at the beginning of the workshop.  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.  If you do wish to take a workshop for a second time please let us know as we do have to be attentive to the number of students in a group.  The energy exchange for this is one half of the cost of the regular tuition for the workshop. 



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:

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 $225.  Must have completed Walking in Beauty Advanced 1A.

   

             Feb. 22 & 23, 2020  (Sat. & Sun.: 9-5pm both days) - Swissvale, CO.

"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.  The email update contains additional information  about upcoming Advanced Workshops.
