How to Become a Shamanic Breathwork® Facilitator

What Is Shamanic Breathwork®?

book cover for Shamanic Breathwork: Journeying Beyond the Limits of the Self, by Linda Star Wolf

The Shamanic Breathwork® Process is a power­ful heal­ing process that inspires indi­vid­u­als to Awaken the Shaman Within™, recon­nect­ing with their own inner heal­er. As old wounds and dysfunc­tion­al patterns are released and trans­formed, indi­vid­u­als begin to regain lost soul parts and remem­ber the magic of who they truly are. Empowerment brings whole­ness and heal­ing back into their own lives, to the lives of those they love, and to the world at large. This process is high­ly expe­ri­en­tial and the wisdom and heal­ing gained comes from each individual's inner expe­ri­ence. Shamanic Breathwork® honors and blends the time­less wisdom of ancient tradi­tions with theemerg­ing new para­digm meth­ods of heal­ing and teach­ing. It func­tions as the rain­bow bridge between these two worlds honor­ing the best of both worlds while creat­ing a bridge for body, mind, heart, and spir­it.

Our Programs and Trainings

Shamanic Healing Initiatory Process (SHIP)

The Shamanic Healing Initiatory Process (SHIP) is a series of six trans­for­ma­tive
initi­a­tions (One Round) designed to remove the obsta­cles to true growth, let go of old story lines that no longer serve us and step into our sacred purpose in this life­time. As the blocks to high­er love and wisdom are released and soul­ful inte­gra­tion occurs, indi­vid­u­als are set free to stand in the truth of their authen­tic being and walk a path with heart.

The purpose of this program is to assist indi­vid­u­als and profes­sion­als in learn­ing how to jour­ney beyond the limi­ta­tions of their ego iden­ti­ty and shape-shift into their sacred soul purpose.
