Workshops are held at Dragon Waters, 6560 State Route 356, New Marshfield, Ohio, 45766, unless otherwise indicated. Both Bekki and Crow teach in other locations; listings include contact information for out-of-town locations.

Currently Bekki is based in Ithaca NY and is teaching in central NY. She is developing a schedule of classes in NY state and other locations, which will also be listed here; contact her directly at bekki@church-of-earth-healing.org, unless another contact is listed on this page.

Two-day weekend workshops at Dragon Waters are $165.00 unless otherwise noted. Workshop prices at other locations vary, usually in line with costs of similar workshops at those locations. Higher costs reflect travel time and expenses, and fees for the venue, as well as potential number of attendees. Workshops normally begin at 10 AM both Saturday and Sunday and run till 5 PM, unless otherwise noted. Fundamentals of Shamanism fee includes a copy of Crow's book Spirit Knife, Soul Bone.

EXPERIENCE WITH SHAMANIC JOURNEYING IS REQUIRED FOR ALL WORKSHOPS EXCEPT THE FUNDAMENTALS OF SHAMANISM, OR UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED. Please contact us if you need more information about this.

Advance registration is required for all workshops. For workshops at Dragon Waters, contact Crow at (740)664-5050 or crow@church-of-earth-healing, letting us know the name and date of the workshop you wish to attend. Crow will respond promptly to let you know if space is available. Occasionally things change, so please do register in advance. Always check directly with the listed organizers before any scheduled event, to make sure events are happening as announced.

If you are in an area where our workshops are not currently being offered, and you wish to bring our workshops to your area, please contact us about sponsorship.


Workshops and Events 2017-8
Shamanic Drumming Circles in Athens OH: Church of Earth Healing Wednesdays,7-9 pm. This shamanic healing circle has been meeting weekly since 1989. Contact Crow for more info.

Bekki
facilitates the Ithaca Shamanic Drumming Circle Wednesdays 7-9 pm, in Ithaca NY through Meetup. You can find it on Meetup or contact her directly. This shamanic healing circle has been meeting weekly since January 2014.

Both circles follow the protocol established by Bekki and Crow many years ago. A member of the circle creates sacred space while another smudges the participants, then a volunteer drums so that all can take a personal shamanic journey. A second, and sometimes third, journey is undertaken for anyone needing healing or shamanic help. Prior to that, updates on the results of previous weeks' journeies are given, and requests for help are shared. We finish with energy sending for healing prayers and prayers of gratitude, and final closing.

Crow teaches shamanic and herbal apprenticeships in the Athens OH area. Currently he has plans for a 2018 Shamanic Apprenticeship training.  If you are interested please contact him about these programs. He also posts info at www.crowswimsaway.org

Bekki's 2017 Shamanic Apprenticeship in Ithaca NY will extend into 2018. This training is taught in 4-day segments. Details for a 2018 training are pending.

Local folks in both areas should let the teachers know if they want to schedule supervised healings with the trainees in conjunction with the trainings. These healings are offered free of charge.

NOTE: These Apprenticeship trainings replace the Two-Week Intensives which we have taught since 1992. They cover roughly the same material, with a number of additions. The new formats allow inclusion of information on working with both Ancestors and the Fey in a healing context, as well as other material; these segments are not the same as, and do not replace, the two-day workshops we teach on the same subjects (Circle of the Ancestors and To The Waters and The Wild).

Additional workshops will be posted through the year, so check for updates. In addition to the Fundamentals of Shamanism, Bekki is planning to offer
Circle of the Ancestors  and Shamanic Rattle and Tool-making  in Ithaca this winter or spring, and Rooted in the Heart, Seeded in the Soul in Ithaca in the summer. She will also be teaching Singing Wolf, Listening Deer sometime in 2018. Crow and Bekki are discussing teaching Opening the Shamanic Voice, possibly in Ithaca and at Dragon Waters, in 2018. Dates will be posted soon.
