Opening the Heart: Shamanistic Energy Clearing Techniques

Opening the Heart: Shamanistic Energy Clearing Techniques
Space clearing takes many forms around the world. In shamanic societies Space is considered to be part of the Great Mother, and Time the realm of the Great Father. Through divination into the hidden aspects of these two realms, shamans are able to clear issues in both the present, the past and the future. Through the vehicle of ritual, past problems can be revealed and addressed and their consequences in the present and the future prevented.
Because this type of clearing is performed in sacred space, it also has the potential to heal deep spiritual and psychological wounds for individuals, families and whole communities. At its most refined, shamanistic energy clearing is a planetary healing that can benefit the entire world.

Healing the Body: Design principles for Hospitals and Clinics
Despite great advances in technology, most hospitals are not places that encourage healing and regeneration. Healthy and healing spaces are not accidental: they all partake of good form, proper energy flow and a strong respect for the energies of the land. The metaphysical principles that
govern our relationship to health and healing need to be understood in order to design spaces that can be used not only to "fix" illness, but also to promote recuperation and good health. It is not possible to place healing structures on unhealthy land, for example, and expect a healing to occur.
Join us to explore the principles that govern the design of hospitals and clinics that truly capture the spirit of healing.
