Many people have had intuitions, hunches, or moments of connection to spirit that were very empowering and perhaps life changing. For most, these moments seem to happen primarily at random and could not be depended on consistently. However, a method exists to create a consistent and safe way to access spirit which many are using as a positive healing force for recovery. This method is shamanic counseling, a spiritual form of counseling that follows the methods of shamanism. Shamanism is an ancient strategy for contacting and utilizing an ordinarily hidden reality to acquire knowledge and healing for one’s self and others. Shamanic counseling is a system developed to help clients solve life problems and become personally empowered.
This method involves the client journeying to the drumming cd, the client narrates their journey which is recorded on tape for review later. The counsellor helps the client formulate the intention for the journey and later works with the client to help them understand their experience.
