Shamanic Light Healer Apprenticeship Classes: 2020 with Leontine Hartzell


January 25, 2020


January 25–April 26, 2020

Now offered in one day and weekend modules that can be taken individually or consecutively. 

Dates and individual class links are listed below. All classes held at Circles of Wisdom, 386 Merrimack St, Methuen, MA.

These powerful life-changing classes are for healers and those drawn to the spiritual shamanic path.

Previously offered as a two-year and then a one-year program, Leontine is now offering this training in one day and weekend module format. Each day long class can be taken individually, with the exception of the Three Day Soul Retrieval Training on June 5th-7th, 2020 which requires the prerequisites of Shamanic Extraction Healing and Alignment and also Psychopomp: Working with Departed Souls and the Dying. The pre-requisites can be taken with Leontine Hartzell or another qualified teacher.

The workshops in this program train people to learn how to be spiritual healers and community spiritual leaders. Whether you will work on individuals doing healing work, conduct ceremonies and rituals, work privately with the spirits of the earth, or focus on enriching your own spiritual practices, this program will give you a wide basis of knowledge and practice to work with helping spirits of many kinds for healing, balance and harmony.

In these accelerating changing times on planet earth, more and more people are awakening to their true spiritual natures and their soul callings to be more connected to spiritual energies. By committing to expanding your spiritual practice and knowledge you can take responsibility for your true place in your earth family and community to reveal and utilize your true soul’s gifts in this lifetime.

By participating in this program you will also be welcomed into a growing spiritual community of shamanic practitioners who gather periodically for ritual and ceremony as well as more advanced learning. Our goal is to join together to create strong circles of light for the creation of love, light, and balance to elevate our vibrations in alignment with pure Light.

Leontine has taught this training for the past 23 years and continuously is adapting and expanding the content to keep it relevant for our changing times. This program is no longer being offered exclusively as a one and two year program in order to make the teachings accessible to more people on the spiritual healing path. When this program was first offered, it was the first of its kind in the Boston area, and students had little or no prior experience in shamanic or spiritual training. Times have changed in the past 23 years! Leontine finds that more and more students have training and experience in other spiritual healing modalities. For this reason, each day long training (with the exception of the Soul Retrieval Training) can be taken separately so students can enhance any prior experience, or take the whole series and become immersed in the shamanic spiritual path. 

These classes use the classic shamanic methods of spirit journeying to a drumbeat or rattle as the primary methods of accessing the spirit realms and connecting with helping spirits. Ritual, ceremony, light body activation, guided visualizations, shamanic sound healing empowerments, singing, dancing, deep immersion in shamanic practices, performing and receiving healings with classmates under supervision, and learning healing methods to use on others, yourself and the earth are all included in each of the classes in this series. 

Please bring a notebook and pen to class, a scarf or eye covering to cover your eyes while journeying, a light blanket to lie on the floor with, a drum or rattle if you have one (some will be provided), a clear quartz crystal to be used for healing and if you wish, a small personal item to place on the communal altar during the class.

The use of computers, video or recording devices of any kind is strictly prohibited during class sessions. Students must have a fundamental knowledge of basic shamanic journeying, which can be easily learned though attending a workshop or personal reading and practice. Sandra Ingerman’s book: Shamanic Journeying: A Beginner’s Guide is highly recommended. There are several good instructions with drumming for journeying on youtube that you can practice with.

If you have questions about this training program, individual classes or the pre-requisites for the Soul Retrieval Training please email Leontine Hartzell at:   Registration for all classes is only through Circles of Wisdom.
