Perth Week Long Shamanic Training - Winter Solstice

One Tribe run a fully accredited shamanic training school in Perth. This live-in bush retreat condenses several months of training into one transformative week giving you the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in this powerful and ancient healing tradition. The training culminates with the Winter Solstice - a potent time of transition and change. The training covers some of the foundational techniques and skills used in shamanic healing including a Shamanic Initiation Ceremony, all of Shamanic Training Level 1 and even parts of Level three. This includes Animal Medicine, Past Lives, Soul Retrievals, Sacred Ceremony, Communing with Nature and a Sweat Lodge Ceremony (see details below for what is involved with each session). You will also be trained in how to be a pure channel for shamanic healing, as well as given a map of the energetic landscape you may encounter. Doing this week long training qualifies you for Shamanic Training Level 2 (which will start not long after this finishes in Perth as a four month training program, or you can do it as another intensive week long training session in 2018). It will be deep, transformative and powerful. This retreat is for those who yearn to connect with the sacredness of life and are ready to do the inner work required to serve their community and transform their own lives. One Tribe welcomes you on this sacred journey and are here to serve you.

This live-in retreat will be in Serpentine which is about an hour's drive from the Perth city centre.


Day 1 Thursday June 15th Shamanic Initiation from 1pm-8pm. The shamanic path is ancient. In its purest form, shamanism creates a bridge between the physical world and the spiritual dimension for healing, divination and transformation. During this powerful day, you will step into the medicine wheel where you will be physically initiated into the elements of earth, air, fire and water. You will also meet your spirit guides who love you unconditionally, and can powerfully support your spiritual growth and healing ability. By forming a relationship with them, you can deepen your connection to your authentic self and the sacredness of life. This is a profound and deeply sacred day one we treat with the utmost respect and love.

Day 2 Friday June 16th: 9am-1:30pm – Animal Medicine. During this session you will meet and develop deep relationships with your Animal Medicine Guides. For eons shamans have connected with and harnessed the healing and transformative power of their animal guides. These guides can open new faculties within us, expand our consciousness and improve our healing ability. You will journey to meet your animal guides as well as learn to retrieve animal medicine for other people. This is always a wonderful, magical and enriching session.
1:30-4:30pm – Lunch and break. We always leave a break after lunch to allow time for food to digest. Doing healing work and shamanic initiations on a full stomach is much harder than on a light one.
4:30pm-7:30pm – What it means to be a hollow bone. The foundational healing philosophy of the school is to be a hollow bone. This means to be a clear flute or channel for your healing guides and the power of nature to flow through you to help heal and transform yourself and others. We will practically explore what this means as well as begin to clear the obstacles that are in the way of you being a clear hollow bone in service to your community. Please note whilst the content of the morning sessions remains fixed, the evening content can vary depending on the needs of the group.

Day 3 Saturday June 17th 9am-1:30pm – Past Life Healing. During this session we will release past life aspects within us that are negatively impacting upon us in this life. Shamanic healing goes back to the root cause of a problem. This often means travelling back in time to heal and release shocks, traumas and losses from lives past. It is possible to isolate these past lives aspects within us and clear the traumas associated with them. As a simple example, we may have been persecuted in a past life for doing healing work. In that life, under extreme distress, we may have made powerful vows to ourselves to never do that work again to protect ourselves from future trauma and pain. This trauma can remain in our energetic system and blocking us from powerfully stepping into doing healing work in this life. It can affect our spiritual sight and healing gifts, our ability to promote ourselves as healers and our feelings of safety and confidence doing the work. By clearing that past life aspect and the trauma associated with it, we can overcome what were once deep seated and previously unexplained obstacles in our lives.
1:30-4:30pm – Lunch and break.
4:30pm-7:30pm – Map of the shamanic healing landscape. This session will give you an overview of the energetic landscape you may encounter whilst doing shamanic healing work. We will also practise the core shamanic principles taught in the school to diagnose and treat conditions to their root causes.

Day 4 – Sunday June 18th 9am-1:30pm – Sacred Ceremony. Ceremonial work is at the heart of shamanic healing and personal transformation. It is a powerful invitation to your unconditionally wise and loving spirit guides to support you to make significant changes in your personal life. Our guides can only support us if we invite them to; this is a potent way to do that. Once you learn how to do ceremony for yourself, and your community, you are empowered to truly take control of your life and make it sacred. It can help support you to make any transition in your life that is necessary. Everything we do at One Tribe is a ceremony which allows us to relax our control over our work and to allow the sacred energy of transformation to flow through us. During this session we will do a powerful healing ceremony. You will also tune in and get information for a personal ceremony to do at a later point in time to help you in your own life.
1:30-4:30pm – Lunch and break.
4:30pm-7:30pm – Working with our healing Guides. Our healing guides are as unique as we are and they specialise in different healing techniques. In this session you will meet your healing guides and learn their specific skill set. You will also do some healing work in groups using the core principals taught the night before.

Day 5 – Monday June 19th 9am-1:30pm – Soul Retrieval.  Shamans have long specialised in soul retrieval work. In order to survive and get through a traumatic experience, part of our soul or spirit can leave our body. This is one of the reasons many abuse victims do not remember their traumas until a point in their lives when they are actually ready to deal with it. Whilst this helps us to get through a trauma, it means we are not operating at our full capacity or power if that soul fragment does not return. We can be left feeling ungrounded, disengaged, have a poor immune system, feel flat, depressed, fearful, have gaps in our memory, become prey to addictions and so on. If someone says after a particular incident they have just never quite been the same since, this can be a case of soul loss. The shaman’s job and expertise is to find and bring back these lost soul parts. This can give us an enormous boost of energy, power, clarity and confidence. Soul loss can be caused by any number of incidents knowing that what one person considers traumatic can be very different to another. Equally, trauma at one age can be very different to another. Common examples that may cause soul loss are car accidents, abuse, shock, illness, combat, addiction, loss of a loved one, divorce or break ups etc. During this session you will be guided to find and retrieve lost parts of your own spirit. This is a very powerful healing session.
1:30-4:30pm – Lunch and break.
4:30pm-7:30pm – Gratitude ceremony. We will do a powerful and sacred gratitude ceremony to honour our time of learning, growing and sharing together. We will also continue to practise the healing techniques we have learned over the week.

Day 6 – Tuesday June 20th 8:00am-11:45pm – Final session at the retreat centre; Communing with Nature. Shamans and indigenous tribes have long been able to commune with all elements of nature. During this session we will spend time on the land connecting to and communicating with the spiritual energy that moves through and maintains it. We will also learn to communicate with the rocks and trees. We will learn to hear and interpret the clear messages from nature. Approached in the right way, we can all do this. This is always a sacred and mesmerising session of exploration and discovery.  

Day 7 - Optional addition: Winter Solstice Sweat Lodge Ceremony Wednesday 21st of June 6pm until late held in the Fremantle area- This is a sacred Native American purification ceremony. To honour this tradition One Tribe never charges for these ceremonies or includes them as part of the price of any courses instead offering them from our heart to yours. This is an intense purification ceremony and is optional followed by a shared meal. More details on its history and what is involved will be supplied on the retreat itself.
