The Great Plains Healer School: Level I and II Training

x

The Great Plains Healer School provides Level-I and Level II apprenticeships in shamanic healing and practice led by veteran spiritual guide Jeff Nixa. It is structured around the Path of the Heart, a powerful methodology for personal growth, healing, and life-navigation rooted in the nature-based spiritual practices of world shamanism.  Both programs involve weekend retreats (F-Su) spread over several months at various natural settings in northwest Indiana and southwest Michigan.  Students spend each weekend reconnecting with nature, soul, and Spirit, and learning the core teachings, entry-level and advanced healing practices of ancient and modern shamanism. Jeff’s book, The Lost Art of Heart Navigation: A Modern Shaman’s Field Manual is the primary textbook, and graduates of this program qualify to apply for the advanced Level-II training.
