Dory Cote is the primary teacher and guide throughout this program with occasional teachings and ceremonies led by Nancy. Additionally, we will have guest teachers at some meetings who will be presenting unique materials to enhance your spiritual evolution. You can expect to be learning through shamanic initiations such as what are revealed in Mircea Eliade's work entitled "Shamanism", a classic research text of the ways of the shamans in antiquity.
This comprehensive immersion in the practice of shamanism is taught by Dory Cote, with teaching assistance by Nancy Bower. This course is open to individuals who have not had prior experience in a shamanic circle as well as students who have had some instruction and experience and desire to go deeper and/or for students who desire to renew their practice. We will begin with a one-day basic instruction in the art of the shamanic journey followed by a rapid progression into the deeper experiences of shamanism.
Shamanic teacher Dory Cote, assisted by Nancy, will lead you in understanding how mystics and shamans have known for centuries that the power and wounds of our ancestors are legacies that require honor and attention.

Some of our ancestral wounds may require healing to enable stepping into this lifetime’s potential! In this workshop you will be the beneficiary of this profound healing.
