THE CHURCH

The teaching Bekki offers reflects her individual and collective experience with Crow, and the needs and interests of the students they have taught, individually and together.   Each listing indicates whether that workshop has been taught by Bekki or Crow or both together. Bekki has taken over much of their collective course work; Some of Crow's offerings are no longer available. They remain here as a tribute to his lifelong devotion to shamanism and his calling as a teacher.

Bekki offers many workshops in varied areas of shamanic practice, and additional learning opportunities in the shamanic arts, energy healing, and divination.  New workshops are added from time to time, following the guidance of Spirit or at the request of students.

In addition to teaching at Dragon Waters or at venues in the Athens OH area, Bekki and Crow have presented workshops at schools, bookshops, homes, churches and fellowships, and Bekki continues to be available for teaching in other locations. She focuses most of her work in Ithaca NY, and occasionally in Athens Ohio, and during 2020 she began to teach on line.

 For many years Bekki and Crow taught workshops regularly in Chicago IL, Philadelphia PA, Washington DC, Rochester NY, Norfolk VA, Columbia SC, in cities around OH and WV, and points in between. In 2003, we began teaching and seeing clients in England. In 2005, we added Ireland to our itinerary.

Bekki and Crow were also frequently invited to teach at Pagan Festivals and similar events. At festivals, presentations often fit the common one- or two-hour lecture format.  They have introduced many to the concepts of shamanic practice in this way. They have never taught journeying except as a full-on class, in order to give students a quality learning experience. This continues to be Bekki's policy.

In addition, shamanic ritual and ceremony have always formed much of their personal and joint spiritual practice and they have always offered these to students, friends and the public. Bekki continues to make this a focus of her spiritual practice. These are sometimes informal, but also formal rites of passage are offered through the Church.
