Featuring Shamanic Teachers
Sandra Ingerman & Evelyn Rysdyk
New 7-week Live Video Training Starts
Tuesday, July 24, 2018

Reclaim your humanness and deeply connect to the Earth, cosmos, and hearts all around you — in a visceral, experiential way.

Rediscover your innate capabilities for self-healing and help to heal and evolve our planet through shamanic practices.


Are you feeling disconnected from others or the greater world due to circumstance? Or, perhaps, you’ve broken away by choice?

Maybe you’re dealing with a health challenge or haven’t quite landed in the role you feel is your calling... maybe you’re searching for what that is.

Or perhaps you’re seeking greater meaning — a way of living that feels authentic, in harmony with others, exudes joy, and includes being of service.

Shamanism can give you a deep sense of belonging and a rich and sacred relationship with all living things — including your own humanness.

The grounded, wise, heartful, self-healer that emerges when you can fully honor this core of who you are — and which is an integral part of the whole of life — is within you. It’s your birthright.

Yet for many, it’s been muffled or lost...

In the busyness of modern life, overwhelm of current politics, and distractions of the digital age, we’ve misplaced our innate knowing of how to live as the ancient shamans did — how to live with a shamanic perception.

Even if you’re a seasoned shamanic practitioner, you may be lacking the strong roots developed by those trained in shamanism from an early age. When we come to shamanism later in life, we can miss important steps that can deepen our practice — and help us evolve.

To Cultivate a Shamanic Perception Is to See the World Through Sacred Eyes


It’s seeing through the eyes of a shaman, whose role is to bring harmony to the world, starting with simply slowing down and being with life all around you, which expands your awakeness and awareness.

It’s opening to the receptive Feminine approach to life, inspired by, respectful of, and deeply connected to Mother Earth and all the plants and animals, as well as the all-encompassing Flow of Life, which includes the Field and the greater cosmos.

It also comes with a willingness to do the inner work necessary to break out of your “human shell” and get unstuck from your misperceptions about yourself, others, and the world — to look at your shadow sides and those of our world.

When we can illuminate our darkness and get past our ego’s desire to control and manipulate life, we can ease into its flow and live more authentically, harmoniously, and joyously.

We develop a healthy inner landscape, our boundaries between our true Self and the status quo dissolve, and the gifts we have — and have had since the beginning of time — can emerge.

To truly walk the shamanic path is to become more permeable and able to communicate with life around you. It’s to discover that when you can let go, you can experience how joyful life is, and that what you were fearing was something that needed to be embraced.

Practicing shamanism in this deeper way helps us to better heal ourselves, and when we heal, our healing reflection and energy radiates outward to aid in the healing of others.

Becoming a Seer Expands Your Connection to Your Ancestors


Reclaiming your innate shamanic perception allows you to become a seer and to draw from unseen and seen resources for personal empowerment and healing, as you honor the wisdom of your ancestors — those living and those who have passed.

You learn to look to these wise elders and helping spirits as allies awaiting your call for help and available to you through the sharing of stories and through shamanic practices, including journeying, ritual, and sacred offerings.

Shamans were the first activists, and we are all being called now — more than ever — to undertake the internal and external work necessary for our own personal evolution and that of the world.

In this brand new 7-week online training with two world-renowned and deeply respected shamanism teachers, Sandra Ingerman and Evelyn Rysdyk, you’ll discover how to reclaim “the shamanic life” we are all innately designed to lead.

You’ll learn practices and rituals to help you rediscover your full humanness with all its heart- and soul-filling qualities, which includes your natural predisposition for self-healing and helping to heal and evolve the planet.

You’ll be guided in a self-evolution through a stepping out of your old, limiting stories of who you are and what you can become into new self-empowering stories that can help you, and your community, grow and thrive.

You’ll receive guidance in working through ancestral karma and healing ancestral connections.

And you’ll discover how to seek what’s possible for you in wondrous ways, because when you enjoy the path, you’re more likely to transform.

During these self-empowering 7 weeks, you’ll discover:

The difference between how power can be used for healing and transformation versus for perceived control over others How to tap into supportive energies that can help you maintain your strength and power to draw in the energies you wish to experience in your life and for the world How to work with habitual thought patterns that perpetuate ways of behaving that sabotage your efforts to live as your authentic Self How to examine unhealthy projections you place on others Ways to open up the lines of communication between your cells so you have access to your inherent blueprint to heal yourself How your ancestors can help you enter into the Flow of Life How your divine light communicates with the Light of All That Is How the natural elements can be allies, teaching you about flow versus control Your stories that anchor you to the past and prevent you from creating the goodness in life And much more...

Sandra and Evelyn offer us an opportunity to transform our perception, clouded by modern Western living, to deepen our awareness of Self and our sense of place in the cosmos.


Cultivating Shamanic Perception can open your eyes to where you fit in at this point in your life, and how you can make a difference. It can help reveal how what is inside you is reflecting out, and allow you to ponder whether this is, in fact, what you want to be reflecting outward.

There is a “soul illness” that’s developed in the West, with many of us having lost our connection to the Earth, nature, and even other people. Expanding your spiritual path by reawakening your innate shamanic perception can help you remember that you are truly a part of all of this.

With Sandra and Evelyn’s help, you can learn to stop compartmentalizing your life and the world and remember your sacred place among all of life — without being overwhelmed.

And you can experience remembering what it means to be human — connected to the Earth, soil, and the hearts all around you — in a healing, visceral way.

We share a commonality with all, and it’s in remembering and experiencing this, we reclaim our shamanic perception, connect with the Flow of Life, and allow it to carry us to live with ease, in harmony, and with greater joy — and to share these qualities with the world.

This is your opportunity to stop moving through your life ungrounded and trying to operate in the world in isolation and through futile attempts at control. It’s a chance to learn to become an effective, real human being — to let go, and open to living an awake, grounded, and harmonious life.

Greater Connection Through Live Streaming Video


So you can better connect with Sandra and Evelyn and their teachings, all of their sessions will be live streamed on video. This video connection will be easy to use and will enhance the impact of Sandra and Evelyn’s teachings. Or, you can easily connect via audio, either through the Internet or your phone.

What You’ll Discover in These 7 Weeks

Course sessions are on Tuesdays at 5:00pm Pacific.

In this 7-week transformational intensive, Sandra and Evelyn will guide you through the fundamental spiritual skills and competencies you’ll need to successfully reclaim your humanness and feel deeply connected to the Earth, cosmos, and the hearts all around you — in a visceral, experiential way.

This course will feature LIVE teachings, experiential guided journeys, and ceremonies with Sandra and Evelyn. Each session will build harmoniously upon the previous ones so you’ll develop a complete holistic understanding of the practices, tools, and principles you’ll need to learn shamanic practices for rediscovering your innate capabilities for self-healing and helping to heal and evolve the planet.

NOTE: Sandra and Evelyn will be presenting six out of the seven course sessions live. Session seven will be pre-recorded due to travel schedules.

Module 1: The Inner Landscape as a Tree
Reclaiming Your Shamanic Perception (July 24)


Becoming fully human starts with reclaiming the shamanic way of being: focusing on harmony and balance, being in reverent participatory relationship with all things, and in a state of love and gratitude. It also includes performing offering ceremonies.

To reclaim this way of being, we have to understand ourselves better, because the more power we draw to ourselves, the more we need to continue to refine our inner landscape and tap into supportive energies.

This week, you’ll discover:

  • How the World Tree is a reflection of our inner world tree
  • The difference between how power can be used for healing and transformation versus for perceived control over others
  • How to tap into supportive energies that can help you maintain your strength and power to draw in the energies you wish to experience in your life and for the world
  • How to create a pristine collective field of energy for our group, which also uplifts the collective energies in the world
  • The collective space course participants as a group will set up to work in during and outside of sessions

Module 2: Awakening to Your Ways of Being
Revealing Your Subconscious Beliefs (July 31)


This week, you’ll learn to identify your subconscious beliefs, including self-sabotaging patterns. This includes examining the projections you place on others. You’ll explore these habitual ways of thinking as well as how to heal them through daily rituals that can release non-productive ways of thinking.

This week, you’ll discover:

  • How to work with habitual thought patterns that perpetuate ways of behaving that sabotage your efforts to live as your authentic Self
  • How to examine unhealthy projections you place on others
  • That your life is a product of your perceptions
  • How to work with the power of compassionate observation
  • How to perceive the world around you from your spiritual heart versus your physical heart
  • How all energy as neutral and how we can use all the energy in the collective for doing good work in the world

Module 3: Feelings & Light Consciousness
Activating Your Ability for Self-healing (August 7)


Scientific research validates that our feelings influence our DNA. Blending this knowledge with shamanic practice, you’ll learn how to move into a state of “coherence,” which can open up communication between your cells and your inner blueprint of how to heal yourself.

This week, you’ll discover:

  • How your emotions affect your DNA
  • Ways to open up the lines of communication between your cells so you have access to your inherent blueprint to heal yourself
  • How to experience your radiantly divine, higher consciousness
  • How your divine light communicates with the Light of All That Is
  • How to cultivate and use the spiritual energy we gain as we embrace our true identity within

Module 4: Creation & Manifestation
Entering the Flow of Life (August 14)


Why is it that we often attempt to hold a tight grip on life and the outcomes we wish for, instead of entering into its flow? We also tend to separate out and celebrate particular phases of our life in the same way we might celebrate the full moon and new moon — but not the phases in between that lead up to its fullness and newness.

It’s the nature of our ego that disconnects us from the River of Life, and during this session, we’ll learn ways to let go our grip and open to the flowing cycle of life that’s always there and waiting for us to join it.

This week, you’ll discover:

  • How we try to control our lives instead of fully entering into the flow of life
  • How the natural elements can be allies for us, teaching us about flow versus control
  • Your stories that anchor you to the past and prevent you from creating the goodness in life
  • How to repair old stories that need to be healed
  • How to become a “master gardener” and work with the unseen worlds to create a virtual community garden together, where we can plant seeds of love, light, peace, and inspiration to support us and the world in years to come
  • The root of scarcity consciousness and learn how to work with the shamanic territory called the void which only reflects back how we tap into the abundance in the universe

Module 5: The Divine Feminine
Developing Your ‘Art of Being’ (August 21)


The Divine Feminine teaches us how to change our presence in the world. The Feminine represents the “art of being” and how we can change what is happening in the outer world by dropping into our own feminine power to become a natural healing presence in the world.

You’ll learn about the mythical giantess Gullveig, and how she was transformed into a great seer. Her story teaches us how to dissolve issues we came into this lifetime with, including our present personality misconceptions and psychic beliefs that limit future possibilities for our lives.

This week, you’ll discover:

  • How you can work with the Divine Feminine to transform your form
  • The giantess, Gullveig, and how she transformed into a great shaman/seer
  • The power in “dismembering” erroneous past, present, and future beliefs about yourself and the world
  • How to release, through the shamanic practice of dismemberment, what holds you back from experiencing your full being

Module 6: Ancestral Allies
Creating a Healthy Connection With Benevolent Healers (August 28)


Shamanic cultures work with ancestors is seen as vital to the health and strength of the community. In the western world, we often reject the belief that our ancestors can be spirit allies for us, as we tend to align more with what we did not receive in our family system.

Even today, shamans in indigenous cultures are doing more ancestral work with people who come to them seeking healing, understanding that a healthy connection with our ancestors creates a healthy way of life for us and can help us enter more fully into life’s flow.

This week, you’ll discover:

  • The importance of working with our ancestors as allies
  • How your ancestors can help you enter into the flow of life
  • How our ancestors can inform us on important decisions we make in life
  • How to create an ancestor bundle with small stone or beans

Module 7: Imagining a New World
Discovering the Impact of Your Energy Waves (September 4) (Pre-recorded)


When one energy wave contacts another, it enters into a positive feedback loop where each wave affects — and is affected by — the other. What this means is that, through interactions with different beings, the invisible, radiant part of you has the capacity to change and evolve. And as you evolve and change, you affect all the beings around you! This is why it is who we are that changes the world. And these changes become more tangibly permanent when they are also supported by physical actions.

We are radiant beings who also live in a physical world — one that we want to preserve and renew for future generations.

During our last week together, you’ll discover:

  • What happens when one energy wave contacts another
  • How energy changes our interactions with other living beings
  • How to embrace your new more fully human self
  • Teachings and messages from Isis and Grandmother
  • How to close a circle for the present, but keep our unseen sacred space open for continued personal and collective work

In these two bonus journeys, Sandra will guide you in a journey into the Upper World, and Evelyn will guide you on a journey into the Lower World. Sandra and Evelyn will be leading a wealth of journeys into all three realms during the course.

— Natara Landrau, Placitas, New Mexico

“This was just like being there with her”

This webcast exceeded my expectations. I didn’t think I could have such a rich and deep experience while listening on the computer. That speaks to the great guidance from Sandra.

I have taken a couple workshops with Sandra in the past, and this was just like being there with her.
