The Soul Compass Path
This is the landing page for the Soul Compass Path: A 9 month, once monthly training program for people interested in learning basic shamanic skills. This is for both the seasoned practitioner as well as the beginner. Distance participation available via Zoom.
The Shamanic path is not for everyone, but for those who feel called to it, their life feels empty without it. Shamanism has the ability to enrich our lives and most importantly – peel off the layers of conditioning that prevent us from accessing our authentic selves. Immerse yourself in the Contemporary Shamanic Cosmology of the Last Mask Community, without having to worry as much about cultural appropriation.

If you are interested in pursuing the Souls Compass Path, please note that attendance is mandatory at the open house/orientation as well as all 9 meetings (either in person or distance). Unless a true family emergency comes up, an absence will dictate being dropped from the course. If you are participating from a distance, you will be expected to accommodate to the full learning day. This program is meant for people dedicated to their own self healing so that they can truly peel away the layers to eventually reveal their authentic self and step into their gifts and power with sovereignty and integrity.
If you take a look at the dates listed above and you cannot accommodate due to a life event (like a child’s graduation, wedding, or some other event), then you must prioritize what is more important. Dedicating this time to yourself or choosing to attend that life event? Neither answer is wrong, but if you would choose to attend the life event then this program is not for you at this time. Once this class becomes a more cohesive group (usually by month 4), then dates can be adjusted if something big comes up for 2 or more students and they cannot attend. But the group itself will make the decision, not the instructor. If you choose to participate in the course knowing that you cannot complete it, you can choose to drop out at any time and you will still have access to the course material up until the drop out date. You can choose to retake any classes that you have already taken the next year it will be offered, and you can choose to jump back in where you left off.
There will be at least one Shamanic Healing Ceremony per meeting (except at the Orientation). There are many wounds that surround our culture, and these wounds have impacted us as individuals. Some wounds run too deep that a solo practitioner (no matter how good) cannot scratch the surface of. Community wounds need to be addressed in a community setting. There will be group healing sessions to address these community wounds of alienation, soul loss, marginalization and separation. The beautiful thing about this program is that it is a closed group of students who are going through the same healing process. Learn to develop intimacy (and not in a romantic way) with other people that are dedicated to putting themselves and their life’s purpose first. It is through this trust that true healing begins.
