Nepal Experiential Shamanic Pilgrimage #2

October 11, 2023 - October 25, 2023

Nepal, the Heart of World Shamanism and Centre of Learning:

Since time immemorial, the Nepali people have preferred their habitations to be in the higher hills and mountains, far from the flat plains and close to heaven, to allow their souls to merge with clouds and otherworldly realms.

The towering height and vast open spaces of these uncontaminated terrains have profoundly influenced people’s characteristics, thoughts and ways of life for millennia.

The mountain deities and spirits are the groundings and protective forces that people invoke and propitiate in their everyday lives – whether to seek support or celebrate any events. To these sacred lofty Himalayas, people embark on pilgrimages annually or semi-annually.

During this pilgrimage, the local Shamans and Elders introduce us to these powers who have empowered and initiated them and helped us to establish our own connection with them.

After the retreat, the participants will be accompanied to the houses of Dhami-Jhankri-Shamans, where the Shamans work to help their patients and perform divination and healing. There will be possibilities for requesting divination and conversing with Shamans and their patients.

The participants will spend the first three days and nights in Kathmandu to prepare and get some rest after a long journey with time differences and jet lag at the Apsara Boutique Hotel: www.apsaraboputiquehotel.com. Then the Group will be transferred for a four-day retreat with the Dhami-Jhankri-Shamans in beautiful homestay settings in the village of Nagarkot, immersed in nature.

During these retreat days, there will be three sessions of work with the Shamans per day. On these days, the local Shamans will perform purificatory rituals and healing sessions and share their evolutionary experiential path describing how they became Shamans and what they do.

From Nagarkot, the participants will hike to Changunarayan and Bhaktapur and stay for three days and nights in Bhaktapur, visiting the Mother Goddess shrines and some local healers.

On returning to Kathmandu and Patan, if possible, rituals will be performed in the power places.

On the final day of the pilgrimage, empowerment and initiation will be bestowed.

Note: This is not a certification trip to make you a healer or a Shaman but is intended to enhance your knowledge through direct contact and experience with authentic lineage Shamans within their indigenous culture.
