Shamanism, Dying and Beyond
Taught by Carol Proudfoot-Edgar
Advanced Course for the Foundation for Shamanic Studies
Encino (Los Angeles area), California
Participants learn how to deal with the issue of dying and the destiny of souls from a shamanic perspective. The workshop is both for those who wish to learn for themselves, and for those who wish to help others who are in terminal situations or who have already passed on. Experiences to be undertaken include learning how to become experientially familiar with the after-death realms, tracking a person using shamanic journeying, completing unfinished business, helping a person to cross over, and classic psychopomp work.
Please bring drum, eye covering, and journal.
We will meet from 9:30am to 9:30pm on Saturday; 9:30am to 4pm on Sunday.
Note: The FSS Basic Course is a prerequisite for this workshop.
Location and Accommodations: This workshop is being held at Holy Spirit Retreat Center in Encino. People may commute or choose to lodge at the retreat center for an extra $35 per night. Although workshop costs are higher than if held in a space such as Westchester Community Center, Holy Spirit provides us with a private, residential retreat setting. Gathering at this retreat center, and having our meals prepared, allows us full concentration on the shamanic material. It also enables us to more easily create Circle and sustains ourselves in shamanic community.
In addition, we are able to have the facility for Saturday night. That evening we will do a special ceremony and shamanic activities connected with the area of working with and honoring people who have died and our ancestors.
We encourage participants, if at all possible, to choose to lodge at the center, especially on Saturday night.
Participants coming from outside Los Angeles may want to arrange for lodging on Friday night.
Holy Spirit Retreat Center is located at 4316 Lanai Rd. Encino, California. This is a lovely eleven acre retreat center located in the San Fernando Valley (central to both LA airports).
Costs for the retreat include lunch and dinner on Saturday and lunch on Sunday for participants.
Lodging (overnight) accommodations are available at extra and very reasonable costs ($35 per night). If interested in such accommodations, you must arrange for this through the sponsor of this course.

**Please note: since we are renting this Center, confirmation for the workshop must be received by Oct 31st.

Sometimes people wait until a week or two before signing up for Foundation courses. However, we have commitments in terms of renting spaces so that decisions must be made further in advance to avoid financial liability. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter. This cooperation allows both the instructor and the sponsor to plan accordingly.
