The Shamanic Priest Process

The Shamanic Priest Process is a commit­ted program struc­tured to deeply explore the arche­typ­al forces with­in the psyches of all men. Our week­ends are designed to acti­vate and empow­er the Shaman with­in and to reclaim the mascu­line, not as Patriarch (Power Over) or over­ly femi­nized (Power Under), but as the Shamanic Priest (Power Within). We will use the Shamanic Breathwork™ Process, ritu­al, vision quest­ing and group work to embrace each initi­a­tion.

Brad is starting a new Shamanic Priest group in North Carolina. Click to see the details.

The Five Initiations are:

Initiation #1 — Death of the Old King — Three stages of masculin­i­ty. How is the patri­archy affect­ing your life? What are you will­ing to let die? Birthing the New Masculine.

Initiation #2 — The New Spiritual Warrior — Claiming your fierce­ness. Standing firm for what you believe is right. What is your mission?

Initiation #3 — Finding Your Inner Beloved — Integrating the shad­ow side of love. Reclaiming your power. Understanding anima.

Initiation #4 — Deep Leadership — The Tyrant and the True Leader. Leading with integri­ty. The Soverign Principle.

Initiation #5 — Embodying the Shamanic Priest — A body-felt expe­ri­ence of the Divine. Accepting the mantle of spir­i­tu­al lead­er­ship. Creating and hold­ing sacred space.

Men of vision are being called to go through their own inner healing and to shepherd the planet through this time of transformation. If you have heard the call, come join us in the search for the New Masculine.

Brad Collins, Co-Director of Venus Rising, received the inspi­ra­tion for the Shamanic Priest Process during a breath­work jour­ney in 1994. It took 11 years of inte­gra­tion, reflec­tion and refine­ment for these Mystery School teach­ings to come forth. If you are inter­est­ed in host­ing a Shamanic Priest Process circle in your area, please contact Brad at or call our office at 828–631-2305.
