THE CHURCH

Our teaching reflects our experience and interests, and the needs and interests of our students.  We offer many workshops in varied areas of shamanic practice, and additional learning opportunities in the shamanic arts, energy healing, and divination.  We add new workshops from time to time, following the guidance of Spirit or at the request of our students.

We also offer workshops taught by guest teachers, friends and colleagues we are happy to introduce to our students.

Click on individual titles for a full description of each experience.  Advance registration is required; see the Schedule for information on when and where each workshop will next be offered.

In addition to teaching at Dragon Waters, we present workshops at schools, bookshops, homes, churches and fellowships -- anywhere we have friends who will organize for us, and a group of interested students. For many years we have taught regularly in Chicago, Washington DC, Rochester NY, Columbia SC and points in between. In 2003, we began teaching and seeing clients in England. In 2005, we added Ireland to our itinerary.

We teach at Pagan Festivals and similar events. At festivals, our presentations often fit the common one- or two-hour lecture format.  We have introduced many to the concepts of shamanic practice in this way. We do not teach journeying except as a full-on class, since we believe in giving our students a quality experience. We are also active in ceremony and ritual and love to share with others that face of shamanism.
