Apply for Holistic Shamanic Practitioner Training Program

For the seventh year in a row, Deana Paqua of Embody the Sacred will offer a year-long Holistic Shamanic Practitioner training program perfect for Reiki practitioners, bodyworkers, counselors and spiritual seekers, starting in October 2021. This shamanic training program is for those looking to dedicate themselves to self-healing and self-empowerment to be of service in their greater communities. Applications are now being accepted from those interested in attending this popular program.

The 13-month program will meet one Saturday per month, and will incorporate teachings based on the healing traditions of the Americas, with an emphasis on the Peruvian/Andean traditions, Contemporary and Core Shamanism. Students will learn practical, hands-on and holistic techniques for addressing daily concerns such as physical and emotional balance, energy clearing, grounding and protection, how to connect more deeply with personal spirit guides, guardian angels, power animals and ancestors, the elements of nature and the Earth herself. Students will learn about the tools of the shaman and how to use these sacred tools properly, with respect and without cultural appropriation.

Paqua is a teacher of cross-cultural energy medicine and contemporary Shamanism, Reiki Master, licensed massage therapist and ordained minister. She brings practical wisdom, knowledge, humor and experience to her work and teaching and strives to empower her clients and students to heal themselves and to use their gifts to help others.

Students will be required to keep journals, complete practice sessions and reading assignments, and attend all classes to attain certification. The program will be offered in the New Milford area, location to be announced. A complete program description and program requirements are available online.
