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.
