SHAMANISM EXPERIMENTALLY AT AN ISLAND LOCATION * ONE OF THE MOST SACRED NATURAL PLACES OF EARTH * TRADITIONAL FINNISH SMOKE SAUNA EVERY EVENING * BOAT JOURNEYS ACROSS THE LAKE *
Welcome to Koli in North Karelia in the summertime. This is one of the most sacred natural power places of Finland, and we welcome you to learn about our Ancestral ways together with us. As your course guide will serve the local Helena Karhu, whose ancestral roots are deeply from the region.
We will meet in the harbor of Koli. We travel by boat through the lake islands towards the magical Tarina-aho retreat place in Kelvänsaari Island. The enchantment of Tarina-aho is difficult to describe in words or photos; we enter a world whose traditional Finnish wooden buildings and special island milieu support awakening our senses, raising spells, and summoning the nature spirits.
We are going to get to know the natural dimensions of our own folklore. During the weekend, we will learn the basics of shamanism and relax together. We will enjoy the unique nature of Kelvänsaari on an incredibly beautiful beach, and for a moment we will touch the beautiful secrets of Koli’s nature for the bearers of folk traditions or other nature lovers.
This course is suitable for anyone who has natural curiosity to learn about the basics of a shaman’s activity, the natural dimensions of human consciousness, and our own selves at this point in our life path. We look at shamanism both from the point of view of our own cultural heritage and from a wider global dimension, which includes our experiences and connections around the world. The course is especially aimed at people who are getting to know the shaman’s world for the first time, or for people who have practiced on their own, but now want to enjoy togetherness with likeminded souls for a long weekend.
