Ancientways Shamanic Training and Healing
Seek not to follow in the footsteps of the Ancients...
Seek instead what they sought.
Lifeway Shamanic Program
Lifeway™ Spiritual Training has been crafted by Chris Davidson together with her Spirit Helpers to be a powerful framework for personal transformation and spiritual growth.
Each series has four facilitated Shamanic Journeys (additional themes in gray offer a more complete experience).
These Journeys are deeply transformative and are best experienced with the support of a seasoned facilitator. Each four-session series is $320.
The comprehensive year-long Lifeway™ Shamanic Spiritual Training offers in-depth spiritual growth. For those who choose the full program, sessions are by telephone 3 times monthly, with a solo integrative Journey last week of the month. Upon completion, certification is given as Lifeway™ Spiritual Mentor. Cost is $2,400 for the year program.
Personal Wholeness Level I
Boundary Restoration/Personal Strength
Personal strength is the important ability to be authentic in the face of pressures, parental expectations, and cultural programming.
Most of us have experienced a muddying of our authentic selves and a thinning of our personal boundaries that protect our natural way of being. Sometimes this is in return for acceptance, and sometimes (especially when young) even emotional survival.
Whether the loss is severe or minor, Boundary Restoration is an important foundation for subsequent healing work. This helps you reclaim healthy personal boundaries and gives you the strength to honor and express your authentic self.
Mending the Heart
The experience of loss through rejection, disappointment, or death of a loved one carries a range of important emotional elements that need healing. This Journey helps heal the memories and the heart and reinvigorates your spirit.
Deep Bonding with Spirit
This is an invitation for deep connection and bonding with Spirit. It is usually done after we've spent time in focused spiritual preparation. Preparation usually includes acknowledgement of personal need, relinquishment of any ego, and a heartful invitation to embrace the Sacred.
It's a powerful experience to see our lives viewed with the perspective of the spiritual world. Things that we feel badly about are often quite unimportant. Things that we haven't seen as valuable turn out to be the most important. This Journey allows us to see our lives with balance and perspective, and to embrace the pattern of care that has woven its way within our experiences. This Journey is recommended for everyone looking for personal peace.
Personal Wholeness Level II
Balancing of Aspects
We can get out of balance by emphasizing aspects of ourselves that we believe are more important than others. It's especially indicated when the physical body has a marked differentiation between strong and weaker sides (left/right, upper/lower). The focus that seems most valuable in our culture is the balancing of feminine and masculine aspects, since we are often trained to disregard one in favor of whichever seems more powerful to us. This creates a skewed experience of life and an imbalanced expression of who we really are.
Purification and Pardon
Most of us have past actions and questionable conduct that have tainted our souls. As this is acknowledged and released, subconscious guilt no longer hinders our joyful forward movement in life.
Embracing Your Higher Self
Our Higher Self is closely bonded with Living Spirit, longing for deeper daily engagement. When integrated, our lives become imbued with the beauty of the sacred.
Dismemberment and Remember-ment
This Journey invites our Helpers to dismantle our surface artificial self and replace it with authenticity. We are "dis-membered" in order to be "re-membered" into our true way of being.
Sexual experiences carry a deep impact on our soul and psyche. Many of these experiences (especially when younger) include elements that are confusing and/or unhealthy. We often carry the imprint of a former sexual partner that needs clearing. A Sexual Recovery Journey addresses the energetic elements involved in past physical relationships. This helps heal and restore our emotional framework, and also addresses the power or soul loss that can be a component of sexual interactions.
We all have issues that influence our physical health, from past traumas to present difficulties. In this Journey, one receives guidance and assistance on maintaining optimum physical health. You can also address specific physical problems for the purpose of healing.

About Distance Shamanic Sessions:
There is no loss of energetic support and presence through distance shamanic sessions. In fact there is often a deeper connection. This is because interaction by voice and energy is often stronger without the distraction of physical appearance and energy. It is important to have privacy for your session and to schedule at least 15 minutes to relax and prepare. A time for integration afterward is also important. A telephone headset is a good idea if you happen to have one, but not crucial for single sessions or short series. The Plantronics M175 headset is recommended as many are not good quality. Please note that Blue Tooth headsets as well as speaker telephones do not carry the energetic qualities needed for this work.
After you've explored the different information and associated costs on the website you're welcome to schedule a 15-minute telephone conversation with Chris Davidson to see if this work feels right for you (please note that this cannot be a shamanic session, which requires formal preparation).
