Life, Death and The Unquiet Dead
Carole Meade, LMHC, Shamanic Practitioner for 20 years. As a healer, a shamanic practitioner works with both the living and the souls of those who have died since time is circular not linear. In this class you will learn about life and death from a shamanic perspective. If a person dies unexpectedly or has unfinished business their soul may stay in the Middle World. In helping the soul to cross to the light the shamanic practitioner will work with psychopomp beings who take the role of escort or conductor of the souls. You will learn about filling yourself with power prior to doing this work, navigating the middle world, communicating with ancestors, meeting psychopomp beings, helping lost souls and suffering beings to cross to the light and the meaning of near death experiences. Friday 6:00 to 9:00 and Saturday 9:00 to 5:00 Cost $170 10 CEUs for counselors. To register contact Carole Meade, cedarwmn@aol.com, 515-279-9625, www.cedarwoman.net.
