SHIP, or the Shamanic Healing Initiatory Process is the signature Shamanic Breathwork series created by Venus Rising co-founders Linda Star Wolf and Brad Collins. Shaman's Hearth is one of only a few congregations outside the Venus Rising mother organization that is approved to teach SHIP.
Why participate in SHIP?
Some people choose to participate in SHIP for their own personal transformation. They may feel stuck, they may be going through a ‘dark night of the soul’, or they may just sense that there is ‘something more’ and would like to explore what is coming through for them. You can choose to go through just one, or several, of the SHIP initiations. Or you may choose to do all five.
Why go through all five initiations?
First of all, Shamanic Breathwork is incredibly powerful! People are often surprised at the depth of awareness and transformation that they experience in a SHIP workshop, and want to continue through the entire series.
Second, you may decide that you want to become an Ordained Shamanic Minister. By going through all five SHIP modules at Shaman's Hearth, you are eligible to be ordained through the Shamanic Ministers’ Global Network.
Finally, you may decide that you would like to become a Shamanic Breathwork Facilitator. To become facilitator through Shaman's Hearth, you will first go through all five SHIP initiations as a participant. Then, you will repeat the SHIP initiations, this time as an apprentice. Finally, you will travel to Venus Rising in the beautiful Smokey Mountains of North Carolina to go through a sixth initiation and additional facilitator skills training.
And, you don’t have to decide ahead of time! Just try one SHIP workshop. See what you think. Most people who try SHIP love it and continue on to complete the process. Watch our Events page or sign up for our newsletter to find out more!
