Houses is taught in a half- to one-day format. It does require
experience with shamanic
There is a practice,
widespread among shamanic peoples, of
finding or making "houses" within which the spirits may dwell. These
may be found and used as they come from nature or they may be
or decorated by the shaman.
Allies, ancestors and deities are the most
occupants of spirit houses. The houses may be perceived as permanent
places of the spirits or as meeting places, half-way points between the
people and the lands of Spirit where we may both safely go to meet and
work. It is not unusual for the
houses, and the spirits within, to receive elaborate care from the
have them in their care and keeping.
In this workshop we enjoy discussing and
spirit houses. Then
we visit various kinds of houses in journey and finally, following the
guidance of Spirit, each person makes a spirit house. The final work is
a ceremony to invite the spirit into the house.
