Shamanic Healing Circle

Monthly First Saturday noon - 2pm

What to Expect at our Shamanic Healing Circle: 

Shamanic Healing Circle occurs the first Saturday monthly.  This is an open community event where we support each other on our spiritual path. Shamanism is not a religion; it is a spiritual practice and a way of living regardless of your background. There are no prerequisites for participating - come as you are!   We meet the first Saturday monthly from noon – 2 pm (approximate end time depending on size of group. People are free to leave at any time – we are informal.) 

The intention of Healing Circle (and all our offerings) is for the highest good of all participants. Unconditional Love and Acceptance is our core teaching and the foundation of all offerings at International School of Shamanism. At Healing Circle, we use ancient, time-tested healing ceremonies and techniques to access and energize healing forces. The space created is sacred, respectful, open and encouraging.

This is an excellent place for connecting with yourself and others. Together, as a community, we can learn, grow, heal, share and experience personal transformation.

Healing Circle is held in an intimate indoor space on a peaceful and private mountain retreat just south of Chatsworth, GA in the northwest Georgia mountains at 347 Sugar Hollow Rd, Chatsworth, GA.  We open Healing Circle with ceremony designed to help you relax and center yourself.   After group discussion, participants are offered Shamanic energy work from the Shamans and Shaman Apprentices while other participants in the circle drum and support people as they are receiving healing energy.   (Participation is optional). Drums are provided or feel free to bring your own instrument.

Heart Consciousness Shamanic Workshop

              17-19 May 2019                  

(Friday 6 PM - Sunday 2 PM)            

Heart consciousness is not a feeling or a thought.   Heart consciousness is solidarity with every living being. It is more than “I understand” (our intellect). It means more than “I empathize” (our feelings). It means, “My words and actions are congruent.” It is an expression of a fundamental choice based in integrity.

Join us for a weekend where you will be guided into Heart Consciousness.    In sacred space using Shamanic techniques we will explore the energy of true heart consciousness of unconditional love and acceptance.   The transforming of the dualistic thinking mind will not occur without the awakening of Heart Consciousness.  The shift to this heart awareness brings your consciousness to its center where you experience your essence and expression of unconditional love, acceptance and flow.  

This powerful weekend is a journey lead by experienced Shamans teaching you: 

How to create flow instead of resistance

How to trust the universe and make it your greatest ally

How to create healthy relationships 

How to embody unconditional love and acceptance in all your relationships

How to align your intention with an expansive vision of contribution and service

How to feel fully supported by life

How to summon inspiration and motivation

How to become a prolific, heart-centered creator

How to let go of perfectionism and practice compassion

How to grow in courage, power, and self-trust

Shamanism can help you realize your Spiritual Potential

Private Sessions and Couples Sessions:
The process we
use is a bridge between psychology and spirituality. We are devoted to assisting people in integrating body, mind, and spirit, becoming truly alive, conscious, and responsible, functioning with creative grace, and developing the capacity to love, accept and heal. With over 40 years of experience and training in a variety of healing modalities, Shamanism, one-on-one counseling, subtle energy work, philosophy, and theology, among others, the Shamans will guide you inside to own your truth and shed what no longer serves you or your relationship so you both grow. 

Don Thomas, Anointed Shaman and Founder of International School of Shamanism, offers private shamanic sessions based on more than 40 years’ experience guiding people on their spiritual path.    He has worked with people internationally teaching Shamanism and practicing his spiritual gift of reading energy.  Don Thomas guides you through obstacles preventing you from fully opening to your heart's truth and your spirit's longing. Don Thomas teaches people how to own and express their truth; explore self-created illusions and false conclusions.  Most importantly, he will guide you in the healing medicine of unconditional love and acceptance.

Shamanic Counseling Session - Price per 45 min. session: $120.00 

(Discount for Mesa Carrier Program Students: $100.00)          

Personal Intensive Session:

In a Personal Intensive Session, we take ample time to focus on you and your process without feeling rushed. These sessions are designed to be a minimum of two 45 minute segments and can be up to a week if desired.  Your personal intensive is personalized for you and your goals.  It will include energy work and optional bodywork to assist you in your evolution toward your healing and opening more deeply to your heart's truth and your spirit's longings. Together, we create a plan that best suits your needs and goals.

During your personal intensive, you are guided in working on all three levels of human existence, Body, Mind and Spirit:

You are guided in opening your heart and speaking your truth; expressing your painful emotions and the negativities of your shadow side; exploring your images and false conclusions, and most importantly guiding you to the healing path of loving and accepting yourself just as you are in this moment as you walk your path.

Intensives are particularly geared for people who need and desire more time than a single session. 
People decide to have a Personal Intensive Session for a variety of  reasons. For example, when you:

  • are dealing with a life crisis such as divorce or illness;
  • cannot feel unconditional love and acceptance; 
  • have hit a wall in therapy and need a new approach;
  • want to go deeper into your spiritual process than one session;
  • are battling your negative self;
  • live at a distance where it is difficult to travel to weekly sessions;
  • are in a spiritual crisis;
  • do not have an appropriate Shaman nearby to guide you; 
Therapeutic Massage and Energy Work:
Lisa Lake, anointed Shaman and Director of International School of Shamanism, offers shamanic energy healing and body work based on intuitive energy healing techniques she has learned over the past 12 years.   Lisa practices a variety of healing modalities designed to help you relax, rejuvenate, release and receive energy.  Using shamanic healing techniques and drawing from her background as a Nationally Certified Neuromuscular Massage Therapist and a Karuna© Reiki Master, Lisa offers her shamanic gift of moving energy for helping you release blockages so you can connect with your own wisdom.   Sound healing, tuning forks, crystals and aromatherapy may be included.   Together, we craft your session based on your intention while focusing on what is for your highest good in body, mind and spirit. 
Cost per 60 minute session is $120 ($100 for mesa carrier students).
