Shamanism 101 — The Seer/Healer Foundation Training

Shamanism 101 is the foundation training for all the Mastery of Awareness class as it awakens all Extra Sensory Perception (HSP) from clairvision and clairaudience to clairsentience and claircognizance. These are the skills of the true healer and seers: the medicine man and woman of the world now labeled shamans.

Through well-organized lectures including many hands-on exercises and clear demonstrations, students acquire a strong foundation to perceive beyond ordinary reality for the purpose of healing self and others.

In this full day training, students use their HSP & intuition to navigate non-ordinary reality into the Three Worlds of the multidimensional energy field. They create partnership with Spirit Allies and find their Power Animal that teaches them about their gifts. They discover the deep meditative state unique to Shamanic Journey and practice with four methods to entrain the brain waves in deep theta, including Out-of-Body-Transmigration. Throughout the day student receive personal healing & wisdom.

The 80% hands on experience strengthen students' confidence to expand their awareness of reality and of the multiverse.

Learn how to use the “Out of Body Transmigration” to navigate the Middle World. That's our every day “ordinary” world that we perceive with our five senses but also the “non-ordinary” aspect of this world which includes spirits, departed, thought forms… that may affect our space, our life, health and that of others.

As a spiritual being having a human experience find out how you can live in harmony with physical- and spiritual-reality. Using the process of Shamanic Journey powered by the rhythm of the drum and also two other techniques that do not use the drum, everyone will be able to discover their favored method to entrain their brain into the theta range of frequencies to access Divine wisdom and develop their Extra Sensory Perception & intuition.

You will learn to set sacred space and why we work with the energy of the four directions yet you will do this in alignment with your own faith, respecting your origin, your ancestors as every indigenous culture as ever done through history. (Read, “What is Shamanism” on this site to understand why this is important.) This will help you gain strength from your own genetic and soul lineage (explained in class) enhancing your relationship to Spirit by applying ageless wisdom to your every day life.

WHAT THIS TRAINING IS AND IS NOT: Shamanism 101 sets the foundation for non-ordinary perception! Of course, you will not become a shaman after this class but you will understand and be able to practice shamanic visioning as it was done thousand of years ago by every indigenous culture on earth as a mean of survival, communion and worship.
• You will not learn a new religion, nor be asked to worship totems or deities, but you will learn to honor your own faith and ancestors by creating sacred space, becoming familiar with the elemental earth energy as well as partner with your Spirit guides.
• In a safe and supportive environment, you will learn how and why enter each of Three Worlds to heal yourself and others. Meet/work with your Power Animal and Spirit Allies to further explore "non-ordinary reality" with the group.
•  With the help of a detailed manual and recordings you will be able to pursue your studies on your own and heal yourself, others. Furthermore, 2 monthly groups are held on the second and fourth Friday each month to help you practice and grow.
•  Gain valuable tools to enter the Lower World to find your power—your essence, and request physical healing for yourself, journey to the Upper World to find out how to reconnect to your Soul and receive wisdom about your past lives your present incarnation, your purpose and your future and how to request healing.

  By the end of the class you will know your way around the three worlds and have awareness of the depth of the many realm that constitute our "Universe" in which you will have found allies to perform different explorations and acquire healing and wisdom for yourself and others. You will have practiced with exercises to help you heal yourself and receive wisdom about your true nature.

  • The Shaman 101 training was wonderful. Our group consisted of individuals in different levels of their Shamanistic journey; yet, Chantal worked with each of us to make sure each of us would not only learn all we could in the training but would also have the ability to continue our journeys once we completed the course. If you are interest in Shamanism, this is an excellent place to begin.
  • I would very much recommend the Shamanism 101 training intensive with Chantal. It was a full day of learning filled with synchronicities, spiritual support, and high vibrations. It felt safe and relaxed in the sacred space created by Chantal. Within a couple of weeks of participating in the training and applying what I had learned, I was able to accomplish something that I had previously attempted many times, but had not had the courage to carry out. It was a wonderful surprise to discover that the tools and techniques learned in this class could be life changing.

  • I enjoyed the Shamanism 101 course. I learned how to go 'beyond myself' to explore and better myself. Twice a month, drum circles let me continue to practice what I learned in Shamanism 101. I highly recommend this course to anyone seeking to learn more about themselves and the world, in ways that move you outside the box. I really believe that this course has helped me with lucid dreaming, as well! Chantal is a wonderful teacher who will guide you and help you grow. This course is the foundation for other courses that she teaches. I love also the drumming circles. Thank you so much!

  • I recently took your shamanism 101 work shop and it was great! You were attentive, focused, and informative. Great for anyone looking to get in touch with their inner shaman! I look forward to taking another course with you soon!
