“We are all part of the ancient Sacred Circle of Life. The essential truth of this reality cannot be denied no matter how we look at it; it is simply an irrevocable truth. To embrace and reclaim our Indigenous relationship to all Life is to remember and lovingly celebrate our sacred relationship with our Mother Earth, all relatives of our One Human Family and our kinship with all Life.”  ~ Hereditary Chief Phil Lane Jr. 

Indigenous Teachings hold the wisdom and the medicine to restore our right relationship with the earth, with one another and with all living things. We believe that these Teachings should be available to all people who are seeking them.

To honor and celebrate Mother Earth and the Indigenous Teachings of Turtle Island, we are inviting anyone who would like to attend this FREE day of Traditional Teachings and ceremony to join us. For the gift of receiving these teachings, we ask that all who participate offer one act of love and kindness to Mother Earth.

In person with Bhola Banstola
Kathmandu, Nepal
September 4 - September 19, 2023
Book your reservations this month

Shamans Directory Ambassador Bhola Nath Banstola is a valued teacher of Nepali-Khasa Himalayan Shamanism and a 27th generation Nepali shaman. He has a graduate in cultural anthropology and has spent many years in the shamanic communities of Nepal, India, Bhutan and Tibet. Bhola is the Founder and President of the Nepalese Shamans Association and will be your guide and teacher for this pilgrimage.

A pilgrimage is a journey to a sacred place to renew and recharge spiritually, to meet and learn from renowned teachers, and to seek healing in far-off places. These are the most common forms of pilgrimage in Nepal. Every day of this pilgrimage will offer new revelations and opportunities to explore the richness of Nepali culture and practice.

Nepal is one of the few countries where a millennium-old lineage of wisdom-carrying shamans still live. The renowned Dhami-Jhankri-Shamans, both men and women with diverse cultural backgrounds, will share the rituals and practices of their lineages in an eco-friendly village nestled on the slopes of Nagarkot Hills above the medieval heritage town of Bhaktapur.

Presentations and ceremonies will offer intimate and powerful experiences for everyone, and focus specifically on Nepal’s rich and varied shamanic culture. As humankind's oldest spiritual healing practice, shamanism helps us address past events, enrich the present moment, and envision the future. Universally recognized spiritual healing supports our emotional and psychological health. There is no use of any mind-altering plants or substances in this tradition.

All of the Nepal Pilgrimages help to preserve the wisdom of their beloved ancestors and are designed to be comfortably suited to individuals and groups from different corners of the planet, even without previous experience.

Namaste! Bhola looks forward to welcoming you to Nepal.

Traditional Talking Circle Honoring the Ancestors and Magnified Healing Crossing Over Ceremony
With Monica McWhirter and Consuelo Marroquin
Saturday June 23, 2023
8am PDT / 11am EDT / 5pm CET
Approximately 3 hours

Topic: Restoring and Healing Our Relationship with the Ancestors.

The traditions of the Anishinaabe Peoples and other First Nation communities across the world are rich with teachings that honor and celebrate the ancestors. It is a common practice in these communities to have ancestor altars, to feast them, and to communicate with them regularly.

It has been said, that one of the reasons for the extent of pain and discomfort that we are experiencing  on the earth at this time, is that we have neglected our ancestors. There are ancestors who have vital wisdom to share and are waiting to be heard, and others who are still suffering in this realm, unable to move on, due to trauma that they experienced in their lifetime with no one to assist them. This Talking Circle and Crossing Over Ceremony is an invitation to heal and restore our walk with those who have gone before us.

The Ancestors are speaking. Are you listening? What do they have to say? Are you aware of wisdom or suffering that has gone unanswered? Are you ready to answer their call? There will be two rounds in this talking circle where you will have the opportunity to share your current relationship with the ancestors and your promise going forward.

This session will end with a Crossing Over Ceremony for all of the ancestors who are ready to let go of their earthly suffering and move on to a higher vibration of pure Love, Light, and Freedom.

Talking Circles are traditionally offered by a skilled facilitator and an Elder who is working within their community. As we are a global platform, we are privileged to have Monica McWhirter an Algonquin and Metis Woman, a cultural teacher who lives life according to the 7 Grandfather Teachings facilitating the Talking Circle and Conusulo Marroquin, a seasoned practitioner of Magnified Healing, Reiki and Shamanic Energy Medicine guiding the Crossing Over Ceremony.

With Eva Tree Blum
Saturday May 13, 2023
8am PDT / 11am EST / 5pm CET
Approximately 2 hours

Please join Shaman’s Directory Member Eva Tree in a co-created hummingbird gratitude ceremony. In reverence and sacred play, we will honor and celebrate our courageous and mighty pollinators and their vast contribution to humanity and the web of life.

In tribal legends across the Americas, hummingbird is portrayed as a Spirit being who connects us with the ancestral realms and often plays the important role of messenger from the afterworld. The ancient Mayan’s believed that the hummingbird was the “sun in disguise” appearing in hummingbird form to court the moon. Today Hummingbird is a clan animal in some Turtle Island (North American) cultures including the Pueblo of New Mexico and some Northwest Coastal tribes as well.

In addition to being the star of magic and mythology, hummingbirds also play a vital role in the physical realm as amazingly adapted and vital pollinators. Their long, slender bills and tube-like tongues drink up to two times their body weight in flower nectars per day; moving from plant to plant, pollinating native wildflowers and seasonal gardens; while eating mosquitoes and other tiny insects in mid-air for protein along the way!

Together, we will embark on a guided journey to celebrate our beloved pollinators who flutter, forage and creep from plant to plant. Activate your body temple with buzzing and song. Become more spacious and alive as we deepen our roots and blossom with our inner garden. Be in greater sacred reciprocity with Pachamama and our pollinator kin. Add our prayers and intentions towards the web of life and a vibrant future with Mother Earth.

Saturday March 25, 2023
8am PDT / 11am EDT / 5pm CET
Approximately 2 hours 

As above, so below. As within, so without.  

As we enter these major planetary shifts in 2023, a new era of support for spiritual practices is forecast. The intention for our ceremony is that the union of our energies, with the blessing of Spirit, the portal of the Spring Equinox, the New Moon, and the DNA activating power of the sacred plant medicine of Ceremonial Grade Cacao, may bring the continued alchemical healing of our hearts, serving to power up our inner medicine and sacred intentions.

Theobroma Cacao literally translates to ‘food of the gods’, but more than helping us connect with external forces of creation, it is meant to guide our connection to the creative forces inside us. Closely tied with the electro-magnetic current of the Earth, the cacao pod is also reflective of the sacred geometrical pattern of the Seed of Life, from which all patterns of harmony and balance are created.

The cacao pod thus literally embodies the concept of the fruit of wisdom and is a magical supporter and powerful alchemical activator of the highest vibration of our DNA during these catalyzing times.

For this ceremony, we highly recommend working with Ceremonial Grade Cacao. We especially love working with KAKAO, as they are a non-profit with the mission of preserving the sacredness of the Cacao bean.

NOTE: If you would like participate fully, you will want to have a cup of sacred cacao prepared before joining. Ordering information is below. Of course you are welcome to be present without it. If this your first purchase from KAKAO, please use this link for a 10% discount on your first order.

About Cynthia
Shamans Directory Member Cynthia Honores was born in Peru and raised internationally. She is a both a student of the arts and practitioner of shamanic earth-based wisdom. Her passion for the alchemical healing power of plant intelligence led her to Sacred Cacao. She has a Medicinal Plant Certification from Cornell University and has completed the Cacao Facilitator Embodiment training program through the School of KAKAO, under the guidance of Michael and Makenzie McPherson, and the The Mayan Wisdom Project.

“We are asking for a miracle and we are willing to make it with our own hands.” ― Ivan Nunez del Prado

In the early hours of the morning, in mid February of 2021, the ancestors began a dialogue with us that lasted with great intensity for three months and tapered to a steady flow of clear, deliberate instructions that continues to this day. We were directed to the words of elders from across the planet who have prophesied for centuries that we will only evolve if we come together around one fire. We were shown that there is a web of earth-based medicine already encircling the earth, and that together, each one of us doing our own part, we were to illuminate it. The idea came to us that the fire of the prophecies could be a virtual one - and the time had come to build it!

The doors of the Shamans Directory site opened to the physical world in April of 2022. This month we will open our doors officially to the world of Spirit; to express our profound gratitude for being tapped on the shoulder and offered to do the work. We will invite the ancestors (your, ours, and everyone else's), our precious Mother Earth, the spirits of the great mountains, the oceans, the plant and animal kingdoms, the elements, the sun, the moon, the star nations, the galaxies that we know of, and all that we do not know of. We will invite them so that we can express our gratitude and to ask for their continued instruction, guidance, support, great love, and infinite wisdom.  

Our ambassadors have assured us that somewhere in the future "it is already done." Now we must continue the work to ensure that future.

Since the 1950's the Medicine People (Paqos) of the Andes have been sharing their earth-based wisdom and ceremony with the world. They know, and have known, the critical condition of the planet and that it will take all of us, together, to restore right relationships to our Mother Earth and all living things. The elders, many of whom had never left their mountain villages, have traveled to cities and boarded airplanes to fly to other continents to teach what they know. Their teachings are so heartfelt and beautifully offered that it is rare to find shamanic earth-based teachers who have not been deeply moved by the beauty and healing power of their teachings and traditions.

Wilbert Salas Atasi lives as most Paqos do, with one foot in the working world and the other in service to Spirit as a Teacher and Ceremonialist for his community and the greater world. We are blessed to have Wilbert as a friend, an ambassador and a member of the Shamans Directory Team - and honored to have him offering our Cosmic Opening Ceremony.

This invitation is open to all. As we call in the Cosmos to support the Highest Destiny for the Directory we invite you to join us and add your greatest dreams and wishes as well.

With Wilbert Salas Atasi and Robert Wakeley Wheeler
Saturday December 03, 2022
8am PDT / 11am EDT / 5pm CET

In Parts 1 and 2 of Calling in the Universe with Wilbert and Wake, we called in the Four Directions using the Tawantin Suyu, a map of four quadrants that is used in the Andes of Peru. On this template the elements that we call in can change each time we open sacred space, depending on what our intentions are and where we happen to be standing on the Earth at the time.

In Part 3 we will explore the Three Worlds: The Upper World of the Cosmos, the Middle World where we are standing in the present moment, and Lower World deep beneath the surface of the Earth. Having  an understanding of the support and wisdom that are available to us in these vast and magical realms enhances our experience at the different layers of being, levels of perceptions, and ways of manifesting our calling in the world.
