Shamanism in Nepal, is being practiced for a long time which coincides importantly with the religious aspects. Offered as a 1-week introduction to Shamanism, it will allow students to gain a better understanding of Shamanistic tradition. Students will be put on an individual program within a group of max 6 people with the purpose of bringing western students together with Himalayan shamans, both to preserve this priceless ancient knowledge and to bring the practice and healing techniques to the western world.
Western students on this one-week introductory program will observe ancient shamanic ceremonies in which the costumed shaman, aided by traditional drumbeats and dance, travel to seek the deities and spirits who assist in the healing work to be done. The course begins in the outskirts of beautiful Kathmandu valley and includes short excursions to shrines and to nature for outdoor experiences which are as equally important as the knowledge that students acquire in the classroom.
