  • To cultivate the skills, gifts and abilities unique to your spirit in order to be of service to the greatest good of ALL.

  • To continue to expand an inclusive and supportive community network of like-minded people dedicated to nurturing the growth and awareness of unity consciousness and unconditional love.

  • To begin from within


General Information

The structure and movement of apprenticeship is ORGANIC. It is a conscious energy that shapes itself to the specific needs of the individual and of the group according to the current of frequencies manifesting in the PRESENT MOMENT.

There are no textbooks or time limitations. The teachings are rooted in the oral tradition of the Sangoma - which is connected to the ancient wisdom of all Nations. By combining these teachings with your personal work, the strengthening of your relationship to your Spiritual Council and the dynamic momentum of the group, you will naturally begin to open up to the unified frequencies of existence and further awaken the infinite possibilities of living your Truth.

"Truth is a state of Being." - Universal Ancestors

As an apprentice, you will encounter blocks and resistance. It is often challenging to discover the limitations of your body and  your imagination. These resistances are exactly what you need to know about in order to work through them.

Your success in this course is directly related to your attitude, your commitment to the process of your own development and your willingness to explore.


Your Facilitator

My name is Mari Abraham. I am an ordinary person and continuously have personal challenges and obstacles to overcome. I am also a traditional Zulu shamanic practitioner - a Sangoma. I do not view these as separate.

My shamanic apprenticeship took place in South Africa. I lived with my teachers (immersion) and have approximately 9000 hours of traditional training. My 'sealing' ceremony - where you are seen by your spiritual council, your teachers and the community to have completed your training - was in 2008. I have been working as a Sangoma ever since. Each step on this path brings new insight and further development to my skills and abilities. I continue to be a dedicated student to the Universal energies and Divine Source.

As your facilitator, it is important to me to create a neutral, loving space of safety and trust. Maintaining a supportive relationship that is based on honesty and open communication also plays a large part in assisting you on this path. I am dedicated to upholding the integrity of my True Self, this course and the teachings from which it is based.
