Join the Twelve-Month Shamanic Lightworker Apprenticeship Training Program

Shamanic Lightworkers are empowered, integrated people whose souls and physical lives are in harmony whose very existence helps clear mass consciousness and improve the quality of all life on earth. This apprenticeship will help you walk your life path in balance, and remain on the path with a heart. At the end of the year you may choose to become a healer by trade, or you might simply continue to be all that you are, whole and complete, blessing the world with your light and radiance.

What is a shaman? A shaman is a person who is aware of the energetic flow and patterns of the universe, someone who acknowledges the spirit in everything, and works with that spirit and flow to shift the world. The word “shaman” is Siberian in origin, and means “(s)he who knows”. There have been shamans in every culture on Earth throughout the ages, people who can connect with Source, or Spirit, to heal and create balance in the world.

What is a lightworker? A lightworker is someone who works with the light for the highest good of all beings. Lightworkers believe in the interconnectedness of all things, all beings, and strive to create a more harmonious, light-based realm on Earth. “Light” shamanism focuses on techniques that can be used heal oneself and the community on multiple levels.
