At Lamennais I have the opportunity to offer you workshops. Both as an individual and in small groups (2-5 people).
I can teach the following Workshops and Ceremonies:
Healing Hands Practitioner – a Native American Wellness Practice. Learn how to serve as a channel for the Energies of Creator. Healing Hands can enhance any bodywork, coaching or training practice.
You learn not only how to facilitate healing, but also the ancient Native American rituals behind. You will understand how the altar works, the meaning of the four directions and learn about smudging.
By learning Healing Hands you not only learn how to facilitate healing in others, but also how to take care of yourself. Classes are open for anyone with interest in healing.
Shamanic Journey – A guided meditation into understanding and enlightenment. Alone, or in a small group, embark upon a Shamanic Journey where you will transform and receive messages from your subconscious self.
This ancient Shamanic practice utilizes drumming and guided meditation to help you gain insights and ideas into yourself and your current life situation. Not only is a Journey deeply relaxing, it can be the start of spiritual growth and deeper self-awareness.
Medicine Wheel – A Native American approach to meditation and prayer. Each tribe and family have through centuries participated in this ancient wellness ritual.
By laying the altar, learning about the four directions and their symbolism and tying prayer ties you learn a method to meditate, reconnect with Mother Earth, as well as clarify your thoughts, wishes and needs.
Wellness Rituals – An alternative way to meditate and nourish mental wellness. During this workshop you are presented to various ideas and wellness rituals. Learn how to smudge yourself, meditate over cards, work with stones and participate in ceremonies to facilitate your wellness.
Together we discover what wellness rituals resonate with you and you are encouraged to adapt them to fit into your daily routines and beliefs.
Drum Making – Create your own Shamanic Drum. During this full day workshop you participate in sacred ceremony to create your own Shamanic Drum. The techniques and rituals used are those of the Santee Dakota Sioux as taught by White Bear Medicine Woman.
The drums are made from wood hoops and deer rawhide, and by the end of the day you have created a beautiful instrument which can accompany you for decades to come.
Geothermal Safety – Learn how to safely use hot and cold stones in bodywork. Temperature ranges, safety, sanitation, and precautions.
Be confident that you are working with your stones in a responsible and safe manner. Feel secure that you are not spreading diseases with your stone-work. Know what’s necessary to ensure proper sanitation and hygiene. Show the authorities that your geothermal practice is safe and not the cause of disease, contamination and burns.
As soon as I receive the official material from Geothermal Therapy Association (GTA), I will begin to teach geothermal safety, preparing you to take the certification with GTA.
