Never has the Earth needed us to step forward and make a difference more than in these times of epic change. Support people to be balanced, integrated and centered in compassion, fostering healthy relationships ~ relationships with each other, the Earth, and with themselves. ~ This is a powerful way to make a significant offering towards personal and planetary healing. The ShamaSoma training program teaches a wide range of techniques that you will be able to draw from to best serve the person you are assisting. This wide palette will give you the skills needed to meet people where they are and help your clients feel empowered to make changes that will greatly improve their quality of life. There are huge benefits from studying the ShamaSoma Method, including enhanced vitality of the mind, body, emotion and spirit as well as developing deeper insight into the plights and blessings of others. It can also be a brilliant path of service. The holistic approach of the ShamaSoma Method can be applied to many areas of life, including personal and professional.
How is ShamaSoma different from other modalities?
Most therapeutic systems embrace one aspect of the whole person; either mind. body, spirit or emotions. The ShamaSoma Method embraces all parts of the being. By utilizing a variety of modalities and approaching the whole self from different perspectives the whole person in benefited. By working with different aspects of the self simultaneously, one aspect can inform the other. That synergy of perspectives brings about deeper, more rapid and lasting change. It is a truly holistic approach. When the ShamaSoma Methods are applied effectively, clients immediately know that something has changed and then they feel and see that change have lasting effects. The ShamaSoma Method aims at deeply shifting the roots and origination of dis-ease rather than addressing symptoms, thus affecting long-lasting, profound change on all levels of being in easy, graceful ways. The ShamaSoma Method’s integrative techniques make change feel real and tangible, inspiring people to continue with their own life changes at home based on the living experience they had in their session. Clients are empowered to choose new realities for themselves, reducing the reliance on a therapist or practitioner to create a better life.
I’m really interested in being a ShamaSoma Practitioner, how does it work?
The ShamaSoma Method Training Program is a One-Year Program, featuring Live, In-person Training Sessions. In between training modules, you will have practicum work assigned. This may include self-development work, as well as practice sessions with a certain number of clients and reporting back about your experience. There will also be tele-classes between sessions and regular check-in sessions with another student in the ShamaSoma Program. Your check-in buddy will be self chosen, and will change every quarter. The practicum work helps you to stay engaged with the work as well as integrate both the internal practices and the therapeutic practices.
