The SoulTender Circle - Starts in January, 2014
No prerequisite, application required.
The soul is our source of joy, connection, and creativity. We each have a unique path, a unique life to live, heart dreams and destiny, and the soul is our inner navigation system that knows the way. When we tend to our souls and access our soulful nature we feel whole and alive, we weather change with resiliency, we live the lives we are meant to live. This year-long circle provides a potent catalytic container for lasting transformation in your life, for accessing your True Self, your wisdom, integrity, and the innate joy that arises from being deeply and authentically connected to life.
Spiritual Development Through Northern European Seidr - Revitalizing the Compassionate Soul of the North
Starting January 2014. Prerequisite: at least one year of shamanic-based spiritual training. The SoulTender Circle serves as a prerequisite course.
The year starts with an initiatory weekend into the practice of Seidr, a Germanic and Norse-based shamanic-spiritual tradition, and continues with deepening classes, seasonal attunements and healing intensives, and ceremony. Characteristics of Seidr include learning a journey process that is sung instead of drummed, experiencing a journey process that is mediumistic (about merging realities and accessing multi-dimensional space), using a staff as a primary medicine ally, becoming a High Seat practitioner, and working with the Seidr tutelary deities including Freya, Odin, and the Norns.

"sigh-th") is a Northern European shamanic and mystical tradition. Seattle Seidr is a community of practitioners and participants interested in exploring this tradition and integrating the ancient wisdom of Seidr with the present day reality.
