Lasavia Healing offers training in shamanic practice, working with the medicine sphere in co-creative circle.

Lasavia Healing workshops and courses work with the structure of the medicine sphere, honouring the east, north, west, south, the above, the centre and the below. In each realm we find a reflection of ourselves that offers insight and integration, and through experiencing and sharing these insights we are able to learn from ourselves and each other.

This training accentuates the naturalness of our spirituality and the need for acute observation and awareness. These courses are transformative, designed to support each of us to access our individual gifts, bring our lives into a spiritual context and connect with our natural environment.

The structure is inherently supportive and all workshops are created within a sacred circle that is both liberating and respectful. The courses invite our relationship with the mystery, exploring both the sacred and the ordinary, as through the ordinary affairs of the world we learn that all actions need to come into alignment. This integrated understanding of the sacred and the ordinary is the deep purpose of the training.

Introduction to Lasavia Healing

Optional introduction or stand-alone workshop

This weekend workshop opens up the world of Lasavia Healing, inviting an understanding of the interconnectivity of all things; our relationship with spirit, with ourselves, each other, nature, land and with the energy behind all things – leading us to the power of mind and heart, of what it is to be human and connected to source.

The Lasavia Healing Foundation Course

In these two years we look deep inside ourselves to understand our patterns, and meet our allies and guides in this work.

This course develops through an interconnected exploration of shamanic journeying, energy healing, personal transformation, ethical practice, plant spirit medicine, nature awareness and land healing. Throughout this course we will be supported by and working closely with the Lasavia Healing Essences and Leila’s book Into the World.

Our foundation for the learning is the co-creative circle, or gathering in sacred circle. This circle is where we invite the divine, where we may leave the world of limitations and enter into a powerful engagement with our potential. Through this consciousness we see into other dimensional states, allowing our perception of the world be expanded, finding our own unique pathways to connection and understanding.

In the first year, we introduce you to shamanic journeying and the structure of learning within the medicine wheel. We journey to find your power animal, explore shamanic healing, body dreaming, cleansing and clearing energetically. We examine the importance of self nourishment and grounding in spiritual work. Looking at our relationship with spiritual guidance and through shamanic journeying we meet a spiritual teacher in the etheric plane, from here we examine the nature of enquiry, belief systems, projection and the power of intention. We look at spiritual practices, forms of meditation, prayer and contemplation.
We enter a deep observation of the ancestral patterns that we have inherited through our lineage. Through shamanic journeying we meet the spiritual warrior and explore the nature of the warrior in the world.

In the second year, we bring the medicine wheel into greater personal and group practices. Through the support of the medicine wheel we examine our shadow, we look at how, what we carry in our unconscious, is impacting our life and those around us. we work with the native plant remedies as a basis to the work and look at the heritage of plant communities, in our shamanic journeying we meet the wise one in the underworld. Again through the medicine wheel we walk and discover our journey through life, we explore the place of learning and walk with awareness to the emotions that arise and start to understand the emotions as indicators and ways to work with patterns. In this journey we are starting to do emotional healing. We look at our relationship with the material world, sacred art and sacred creation. Stillness and observation meditation. The art of being present.

The Lasavia Healing Diploma

In the first year of the Diploma we explore enterprise and individual gifts and talents. We examine what is healthy community, how does community allow the growth of individual talent and also create culture that supports each other as a whole. We look at the relationship to the animal kingdom, the sacred masculine and sacred feminine, the labyrinth and spiral journeys, ancient wisdom in contemporary times. Underpinning this teaching is the world of the insects. We go further with symbolic language, the nature of dreaming and manifestation. We create power masks working more deeply with our innate power, healing and spiritual practice.

In the second year, we examine what is soul, spirit and source. The layers of insight and healing through soul retrieval, where we examine the concepts of soul and soul loss through trauma, neglect of our basic needs and the experience of not being received into the world with honour and joy. Through learning soul retrieval and core shamanic counselling, we looking at dealing with processes of energy empathy and creating clear boundaries in healing work. Part of the teaching is working with extraction of entities and clearing energy. We finish the course with a vision quest and explore ongoing support.
