A month-long programme which can be attended as a four-week intensive or as individual weeks.

Holistic Awareness is based on the experience that all aspects of life are intimately related and part of the same whole. According to this perspective there is no separation and we can find our sense of purpose only if we acknowledge the wider reality in which we exist. This reality also includes what lies beyond our ordinary perception and can effectively deepen the awareness of who we truly are.

Astroshamanism is a holistic system of healing aimed at expanding human perception through the integration of the basic principles of shamanism with experiential astrology, the contemporary revival of archaic mystery traditions and the spirit of the Findhorn Community.

This month-long intensive offers a unique and thorough exposure to holistic awareness and shamanism and gives continuity of contact with the workshop focalisers.

The programme is designed for newcomers as well as if you wish to consolidate previous experiences with shamanism or related methods, and bring shamanic healing into your life and relationships with others. Completion of the programme provides a solid basis for advanced work.

This month-long programme includes the following weeks, which may also be attended independently (except for week 3).

Week 1: Basic Week - A Journey Into the Inner Universe
2–8 March 2013
Focuses on clarification of your life intent and connection with your inner guidance. Participants are led in working with basic astroshamanic techniques for expanding perception and reawakening authentic purpose. The workshop includes soul retrieval, astroshamanic touch and bodywork, trance dance, holistic energy work and various opportunities for integrating shamanic work with ordinary reality.

Week 2: Intermediate Week - The Voyage Through the Zodiac
9–15 March 2013
Participants experience the whole spectrum of holistic awareness and astroshamanic archetypes, retrieving and transforming blocked energies, strengthening the relationship with your multidimensional self and life intent. This workshop is designed for people who intend to employ shamanism both for yourself and in your practice with others. The previous week, or another edition of the Basic Week, is a prerequisite for attendance.

Week 3: Integration Week - Grounding the Vision
16–22 March 2013
During this week participants have time and space for integrating the experiences of the previous weeks, according to their own rhythms and visions, while being in the Findhorn Community, spending four mornings in our service departments, taking part in optional activities and events such as gardening, sacred dances, walks, individual or group astroshamanic healing sessions.

This week can only be attended as part of the month-long option and is not available to be booked separately.

Week 4: Advanced Week - Astroshamanic Practitioner Intensive
23–29 March 2013
This is a special astroshamanic workshop devoted to practitioners and advanced participants.
