The Shamans Path to Awakened Living
with Don Reed Simmons
“Enriching and Awakening the lives of others while growing their relationship to the Great Spirit is the mission of the Global Shaman.”
Shamanism is thought of as the Original Religion, but in reality, it's not a religion at all. It is a way of life and a method of living authentically and naturally. Our world has changed since the beginning of time and Shamanism has evolved with the times, keeping deeply committed to the roots of its core beliefs. Shamans are intermediaries between the human and spirit worlds communicating with the natural elements through Animal Spirit Guides and Great Spirit Guides to bring harmony into their community.
A Shaman works through mystical insight based on seeing God in all the natural elements of our world. They can treat illness and are capable of entering supernatural realms to obtain answers to the problems of their community. No one culture owns Shamanism, it belongs to and grows from your own personal calling to live authentically.
Discover your journey through The Shamans Path to Awakened Living, a unique awareness of the world where communication with the Great Spirits is simply a way of life.
The ones who live intentionally, compassionately, intuitively
and with action are the Shamans of the world.
The next Shamans Path to Awakened Living class begins February 2020.
Last year, 2019, was a tremendous success and you will again be able to choose either a Saturday or Sunday class with a limited number of students per class. Each class will be the same teaching and once you choose your class, either Saturday or Sunday, you will need to stay with that class. (*) Our Shaman community is growing with activities outside of class of which you will be able to attend, including extra classes, ceremonies and social gatherings.
(* if you know you will miss a class, you will be able to either take the class on the opposite day than yours, or attend the make-up class to be held on the Sunday morning on the following month from 10am - 12:30pm. This will need to be confirmed with Don Simmons before you miss or change class. You are allowed only 3 changes for the year. You will still be required to pay for make up classes.)
This long form shamanic training prepares you to accept the Shaman’s Path as a way of living and gives you not only the foundation of shamanism but also the tools to discover for yourself the deeper life you can live by living as a modern day Global Shaman. There will be at least one SHAMANIC JOURNEY each session and more will be required in the interim between sessions.
Each class builds upon the last and each level is required for the next. You can take the classes one at a time with an upfront 3 month minimum commitment and stop anytime you like but you must start from the beginning and build up.
