The Shamanic Apprenticeship

Shamanic Practitioners Course Outline

 

                           

 

The next shamanic apprenticeship starts in September 2018 and 2019 and is for those who wish to study the subject in more depth and become a Shamanic Practitioner or those wishing to further their own personal development and find their true nature and use the work in other areas of their lives. All teaching brings profound change and as an apprentice you need to be open and willing to go through such change. This course is firstly about you and your individual journey and secondly about learning how to be a practitioner. It is important for you to be open to receiving guidance and also that you are ready to do the work involved in this type of journey.

As an apprentice, you will delve deeply into the use of shamanism for bringing transformation and change into people’s lives, it is an in-depth apprenticeship that will bring healing into your life and equip you to bring healing into other people’s lives.

I will guide and support you, and as your teacher / mentor, I will help you to grow as an individual as well as helping you to learn the tools you need to open the pathways of knowledge and growth. It is through your own growth and metamorphism that you become more able and open to helping others. As with any course it stands or falls by the integrity, trust and honesty of those involved.

My journey has led me to study many different ways of healing from many extraordinary teachers. In a dream these teachings appeared as lines of energy coming from many different places of knowledge but all from the same loving, compassionate source which flowed into me and it is from that place in my heart where all the work that I do was born.

 

My Shamanic teacher, known to many as White Eagle said to me:

“I do not stand above you nor below you, I choose to stand beside you to accompany you on your journey, please feel free to stay as long as you need.”

 

I would like to extend the same invitation to you.

Shamanic Apprenticeship Testimonial

Testimonial

 

Sue is a calm, patient, wise practitioner, teacher and guide with a true connection to spirit. She is interested in your story but does not allow you to wallow in it. Through your story telling, Sue gives you the tools to move forward and empower yourself, unravelling its intricacies as you go. Moving you forward to true Freedom of Spirit.

I have worked in the holistic complementary field for 25 years and have found it increasingly difficult to find people in my line of work who really ‘walk the walk’ and not just ‘talk the talk’. I spied in Sue just such a person. So when she asked me if i would like to participate in her next shamanic apprenticeship I jumped at the chance, especially since I had just received a deeply meaningful treatment from her

She has gently lead me from a place of inner terror and disharmony back to a place of light and magic. My body was broken, my mind covered in a gloom of self despondency, my emotions in constant turmoil and my spirit compromised. Many a caterpillar pupa could say the same. I use this analogy because my work with Sue has been truly transformational: my spirit, body, mind and emotions.

Sue has helped me regain my sense of self and understood the stresses that have impacted on my health and helped me to rebuild my body. From a Shamanic perspective my body decomposed and has been reborn – an amazing experience. Through complete disintegration I have lean’t to rebuild my self. I still can’t believe how different I feel now to how I did feel. When I started my shamanic journey with Sue I was not well, bodily, mindfully, emotionally or spiritually and I had had enough. I only knew this was not me. I was lost and had to find myself and build myself up again. Through Sue’s mentoring I have been able to do just that.

Sue has reminded me that true health starts when you care for yourself, listen to your body, believe in its worth and its ability to change. There is nothing better than when you realize that your own body holds the key to its health if you only stop to listen to it. It knows how to get better and heal itself and will share that with you if you ask. Shamanism is that journey back to full body integration and empowerment. I cannot rate what Sue does highly enough – I am so glad I found her and that i was able to be a participant in her two year shamanic apprenticeship. I have also learn’t many seemingly magical healing skills that I can now use in my various life/work situations and have available for anyone who really wants to improve their understanding of who they are, their connection with spirit and our earth as well as their connection with their own body, mind and emotions.

If you are wondering whether or not to go on a similar journey with Sue – please don’t hesitate – not only transforming but great fun! Spirit has a way of making sure of that!

Sue is a unique person with a unique set of skills from whom I have been very lucky to learn and work with.
What an amazing start to a journey which is the rest of my life!

Thank you Sue for helping me to unleash my spirit!

Many Blessings…..

The Fire Ceremony

The Munay-Ki Rites

 

The Munay-Ki Rites

 

The Munay-Ki Rites are brought to us from the Q’ero Shamans, they are seen as a path of fire, a path of recognizing your Divine nature, the Divine in you. The nine Rites will lead you into a place of personal power and wisdom whilst having the ability to change the quality of your DNA as part of the development into a more spiritually enlightened being.

Munay-Ki comes from a Quechua word that means ‘I Love You’. The Munay-Ki are the nine rites of initiation to become a person of wisdom and power who has accepted the stewardship for all of creation. The nine rites are common to all Shamanic traditions, even though they are expressed in different forms and styles in different cultures. They derive from the great initiations from the Hindus Valley that were brought to the Americas by the first Medicine men and women who crossed the Baring Straights from Siberia during the glacial period some 30,000 years ago. These courageous travellers were the Laika, the Earthkeepers of old.

The Laika have always been ordinary men and women who live extraordinary lives. They were not born with special gifts from Spirit, they have acquired uncommon grace and power through prayer, study of the wisdom teachings or insights and discipline. Some grew to be renowned leaders and healers, while others lived quiet lives, raising their children and growing corn. The Laika felt that people would come to the Munay-Ki when they were ready and felt a calling to do so.

Many of you have received such a calling from Spirit and long to make a difference in the world and in your life. When you come to the path of the Earthkeepers with sincere intention and an open heart, you will soon notice that you are not alone. You will find yourself in the company of like-minded people who strive to live by ethics and vision. You will find yourself in the company of Earthkeepers who lived on this planet many thousands of years ago, luminous beings who are now part of the great matrix of life, these Earthkeepers will add their power and vision to yours.

As you experience the Munay-Ki, you will feel the presence and sense the wisdom on these luminous ones who have broken out of linear time and now dwell in sacred time, in infinity, free from the grip of karma and rebirth. The Munay-Ki will clear your luminous energy field of the psychic sludge left by past traumas. As you raise your level of vibration, these luminous beings will come to you and guide you. Connect with them, and you will be able to recall stories that you never experienced directly, but that are now yours. You will remember sitting around a fire with the buffalo behind you and meditating in a stone temple above the snow line.

Since the Earthkeepers come from the future as well, they can help us to access who we are becoming as humans 10,000 years from now. The memories from the past are available to the Laika who taps into that vast reservoir of knowledge that exists outside of time. The visions of the future come as possibilities, because everything in the future is still in potential form. That is why Earthkeepers from the Hopi, the Maya, the Inka and many other nations gather regularly to pray for peace on the Earth. They do so by tracking along the possible futures for the planet to find one in which the rivers and the air are clean and people live in harmony with each other and nature. The act of finding this desirable future installs it into our collective destiny and makes it a little bit more probable than it was before, because it has acquired another quanta of energy from these Earthkeepers.

When we connect with these luminous ones, their stories become our stories, we actually ‘remember’ making our way across the Bering Straits or crossing the Sonora Desert into Central America, or even before that, making our way over the Himalayas to the fertile green valleys on our great journey north from India. When we partner with the Earthkeepers from the future, we make available to ourselves knowledge that can upgrade the quality of our DNA. This runs contrary to scientific wisdom, which says that our genes can only be informed by the past, by the gifts and illnesses our ancestors had. The Laika understand that when you are free of the bounds of time, the future can reach backwards like a giant hand to pull you forward. You can be influenced by who you are becoming.

As you receive the Munay-Ki, your Chakras will become clear and you will acquire what the Laika no as the rainbow body. This is when your Chakras glow with their original radiance. Remember that each of the Chakras has a colour and when they are shining with their original light, they emit the colours of the rainbow. When they are dulled by trauma from this and from previous lifetimes, our LEF acquires a greyish hue and our Chakras become pools of psychic sewage. Once we acquire a rainbow body, the luminous Earthkeepers can reach out to us because they recognize that we share a common vision and calling. When this happens and if you have developed the ability to see into the invisible world, you can discern the former physical forms of these luminous ones. Sometimes, people will perceive these ancient Earthkeepers as Native American elders, wearing robes from Asia or furs from Siberia, or even feathers from the Amazon. Sometimes you will be able to perceive their thoughts and feelings and you will have access to their wisdom and their stories. Eventually, as you experience the 7th, 8th and 9th initiation, you can download a new and better version of the software that informs the LEF, which will then inform your DNA giving it instructions on how to create a new body that will age, heal and die differently.

There is nothing to do to attract these luminous Earthkeepers, they will come to you when you invite them to do so and are ready to receive them. When the student is ready, the master appears. They will not disturb you in any way, but are available to support you in your efforts to bring a bit more light and healing into the world. They are also there to protect you from the negativity and fearful energies in the world today.

 

 

The Nature of the Luminous Beings

 

These luminous ones are our medicine lineage. They are humans who rose to the level of Angels. Some are in bodies, some are in spirit form, but all have a mandate to protect those who are looking after the well-being of the planet. The Buddhists call them Bodhisattvas. They are the finest spiritual allies anyone can have and they provide us with knowledge on how one becomes and Angel. This is what the prophecies of the Laika mean when they tell us that we have the potential to become Homo Luminous. We can develop a Luminous Energy Field of an Angel within our lifetime. The Munay-Ki offers us the energetic keys to do this.

When we evolve to Homo Luminous, we no longer have to call on Angels and Archangels to help us find a parking spot or our fortunes, because we are becoming like them. Remember that in the Bible, God said, ‘Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil, and now, lest he put forth his hand and take also of the tree of life and eat and live forever.’

As we become Earthkeepers, we join the ranks of the Angels, who come from many different worlds and were the original souls present after the Creation. They don’t cycle through bodies as we do because they don’t need a corporeal form as they don’t need to learn and grow during an existence in the material world. They have everlasting life and are the keepers of many worlds in many galaxies.

The Munay-Ki Rites - Part 1 - The Foundation Rites

Munay – Ki Rites – Part 1 – The Foundation Rites

 

Duration: One Day Course
Dates: Arranged to Suit
Price: £100
Time: 10am – 4.30pm

The Munay – Ki Rites are brought to us from the Q’ero Shamans, they are seen as a path of fire, a path of recognizing your Divine nature, the Divine in you. The meaning of the words, Munay-Ki is – ‘I love you.’ The nine Rites will lead you into a place of personal power and wisdom whilst having the ability to change the quality of your DNA as part of the development into a more Spiritually enlightened being.

The Nine Rites of the Munay-Ki are transmissions and attunements that have been handed down from generation to generation throughout Shamanic cultures worldwide. Although they may differ on the outside between cultures, the essence of the transmission remains the same.

The transmissions are energetic seeds that when nurtured with fire, quicken the path to Spiritual development and enlightenment on our journey towards discovering who and what we are and who and what we are becoming.

Receiving the Munay – Ki Rites is your conscious acknowledgement of a calling of stewardship to all of Creation, receiving the Munay – Ki Rites is your commitment to a personal, Spiritual Evolution.

The Munay – Ki Rites consist of nine rites which are separated into three groups of Rites:

  • The Foundation Rites
  • The Lineage Rites and
  • The Rites of the Future, of Times to Come

Each group of Rites is a separate part of the same course, you MUST complete ALL three parts of the course.

Certificate Awarded on Successful Completion of ALL THREE PARTS of the Course.

 

Part 1 – The Foundation Rites

In Part 1, you will receive the following four Foundation Rites:

  • Rite One – The Healers Rite
  • Rite Two – The Bands of Power Rite
  • Rite Three – The Harmony Rites
  • Rite Four – The Seers Rite

 

Rite One – The Healers Rite

This connects you to a lineage of Earthkeepers from the past that come and assist you in your personal healing. The Laika know that we have tremendous spiritual assistance available to us. These Luminous Beings work on us during our meditation and sleep time to heal the wounds of the past and of our ancestors.

The Healers Rite awakens the healing power in your hands so that everyone you touch is blessed.

 

Rite Two – The Bands of Power Rite

This rite consists of protections installed in your LEF. These are known as the ‘Bands of Power’ and consist of five energetic bands representing earth, air, fire, water and pure light. These bands are installed in your Luminous Energy Field and act as filters, breaking down into one of the five elements any negative energies that come your way so that these energies can feed you instead of making you toxic or ill. The Bands of Power, are always ‘on’ and negative energies bounce right off them. In a world filled with fear, the Bands of Power provide essential protection.

 

Rite Three – The Harmony Rites
During the Harmony Rites you receive seven archetypes into your Chakras, in the first Chakra you receive the archetype of Serpent, Jaguar goes into the second Chakra, Hummingbird into the third and Eagle into the fourth Chakra. Then the three ‘Archangels’ go into your upper three Chakras, Quetzalcoatl, the feathered Serpent God of the Americas goes into your 5th Chakra, Keeper of the Middle World (our waking world) into our 6th and Pachakuti, keeper of the time to come, the protector of the Upper World (our super-conscious) goes into our 7th Chakra.

These Archetypes are transmitted into your Chakras as ‘Seeds’. These seeds germinate with fire and you have to perform a number of fire meditations to awaken them and help them grow. Afterward, they help combust the psychic sludge that has built up in your Chakras, so that your Chakras can shine with their original light as you acquire a ‘Rainbow Body.’ This rite helps you to shed your past the way the Serpent sheds her skin.

 

Rite Four – The Seers Rite

This Rite installs filaments of light extending from your visual cortex in the back of your head to your third eye and heart Chakras, this practice awakens your ability to perceive the invisible world. Many have found that a few months after receiving the Seer Rites, they are able to perceive the world of energy around them.

This course is suitable for all levels of Spirituality and does not support any one belief system.

Part 2 – The Lineage Rites:

In Part 2, you will receive the following three Lineage Rites:

  • Rite Five – The Day Keepers Rite
  • Rite Six – The Wisdom Keepers Rite
  • Rite Seven – The Earths Keepers Rite

 

Rite Five – The Day Keepers Rite

The Daykeepers were the masters of the ancient stone alters found in sacred places throughout the world from Stonehenge to Machu Picchu. The Daykeeper is able to call on the power of these ancient altars to heal and bring balance to the world. This Rite is an energetic transmission that connects you to a lineage of Laikas from the past.

According to lore, the Daykeepers call on the sun to rise each morning and set each evening, they made sure that humans were in harmony with mother earth and honoured the ways of the feminine. The Daykeepers were the midwives who attended births and deaths as well as being the Herbalists or Curanderas. They were generally women and were knowledgeable about the ways of the feminine earth. This initiation begins the process of healing your inner feminine and helps you to step beyond fear and practice peace. This Rite connects you to a lineage from the past, and balances masculine and feminine energies for both men and women.

 

Rite Six – The Wisdom Keepers Rite
Legend says that the ancient wisdom resides in the high mountains. The ice-covered peaks were revered as places of power, just as other mountains around the world from Mt. Sinai to Mt. Fuji to Mt. Olympus, they have been honoured as places where humans meet the divine. The lineage of Wisdomkeepers are medicine men and women from the past who defeated death and stepped outside of time. The job of the Wisdomkeeper is to protect the medicine teachings and share them with others when appropriate. This Rite helps you to step outside of time and taste infinity.

This Rite offers the gifts of the divine masculine. In our western world we are highly rewarded for being able to be solitary, focused, linear, critical thinkers. Up until now this has come through without the guidance of the connectedness and nurturing of the divine feminine, and created a space ripe for greed, abuse of the environment, and the history of war. As our planet heals its feminine and connective side, there will be less and less space for abuse. This Rite helps you to heal your inner masculine, to step outside of time and become steeped in the medicine teachings and taste infinity.

 

Rite Seven – The Earths Keepers Rite
This Rite connects you to a lineage of archangels that are guardians of our galaxy. They are reputed to have human form and be as tall as trees. The Earthkeepers are stewards of all life on the Earth and come under the direct protection of Archangels and can summon their power when they need to in order to bring healing and balance to any situation. The Rite of the Earthkeepers helps you to learn the ways of the seer and to dream the world into being.

This course is suitable for all levels of Spirituality and does not support any one belief system.

Part 3 – The Rites of the Future, of Times to Come

In Part 3, you will receive the following two Rites of the Future, of Times to Come:

  • Rite Eight – The Star Keepers Rite
  • Rite Nine – The Creator Rite

 

Rite Eight – The Star Keepers Rite

The Starkeeper Rites anchors you safely to the time after the great the great change that is said will occur on or around the year 2012. According to lore, when you receive this Rite, your physical body begins to evolve into that of Homo Luminous. The ageing process is slowed down and you become resistant to diseases you were once vulnerable to.

When you receive these Rites, you acquire stewardship of the time to come and all future generations.

This Rite has sometimes been called the empowerment of our becoming, and the establishment of a new home. In Quechua, it is called “Mosok Karpay”, which means the new power. “New” in the sense of a new way of being. Our territory of stewardship increases in this rite to include all of the galaxies. Power accumulates to the degree we are willing to take on stewardship.

 

Rite Nine – The Creator Rite

When you receive the Creator Rites you awaken the God-Light within you and acquire stewardship for all of creation from the smallest grain of sand to the largest cluster of Galaxies in the Universe. This Rite has never been available before, although there were individuals who attained this level of initiation and awakened their Christ or Buddha consciousness, it was never possible to transmit these from one person to another until recently. So while Spirit-to-human transmission happened on occasion, human-to-human transmission was impossible until now. The Creator Rite was brought forth and gifted to us by Inka elders in the Andes during the summer of 2006.

As with the earlier lineage rites, the Creator Rite expands your territory of influence and stewardship. The only way to have stewardship for all of creation is to step outside of time and space to become one with the Creator, one with Spirit.

According to lore, the wisdom teachings of the Earthkeepers go back more than 100,000 years. During this time, the teachings have gone through many transformations as mountain peoples migrated to lush farmland and then crossed the Ice in Siberia into the thick forests of the American continent. Today, we are going through another evolution as we bring this ancient body of knowledge into the 21st Century and although the outer form of the teachings change, the inner form remains the same.
