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.

Healing Our Shadows

A Journey of Sacred Union

Next workshop being offered:

Date: July 26th - 28th, 2019

Location: Destiny Lane, Cawston, BC

EXCHANGE AMOUNT: $385CAN (includes tuition, meals and accommodation)

This intensive Shamanic workshop is designed in collaboration with your Ancestors and Spirit Guides. With their guidance, we will journey into our shadow self to uncover, recognize and bring into light the fears which inhibit us from accessing our sacred Unified Self. 

Mari Abraham is a professional educator, traditional Zulu shamanic practitioner and intuitive. Darlene Abraham is a Healing Touch and Qi Gong practitioner. Combining sacred theatre, ancient Zulu teachings, Qi Gong and Healing Touch, you will be guided through a variety of rituals and procedures developed in collaboration with the Ancestors. 

Many people today spend time and commitment working towards uplifting and empowering their Light bodies. While this is a worthwhile journey, we often forget, or completely deny, the existence of our Shadow bodies. When this occurs, our Shadows become ill. A sick Shadow does not allow you to live in balance and harmony with the energies of the Universe. In this workshop, we will work towards cleansing, healing and uplifting our Shadows, so that they may, once again, take their rightful place as the ultimate partner of your Light body. The energy of this ancient and Sacred Union is an important step towards the expansion and empowerment of your Soul. 

Activities will include a fire cleansing ritual and a Sacred Union river ceremony!

Workshops begin at 6:00pm on the Friday and conclude around 4:00pm on Sunday. Price includes tuition, accommodation and meals. Personal snack and beverages are not included in the price.
