Studies in Shamanic Chinese Medicine

Course Overview

“The more energy or life force you can awaken and cultivate in your body, the greater your capacity to feel consciousness” (John Wineland, Facebook page). 

With an increased awareness in life force and energy comes a greater sensitivity to all forms of energy.  This is the primary purpose for offering this introductory course in Shamanic Chinese Medicine. Intuitive powers will strengthen, and with regular practice of qigong exercises, breathwork and meditation, one will begin the process of purifying the body of lower energy vibrations and building life force energy, or Qi.   Through the process, one will become more conscious of one’s own energy, the energy in others, and all the subtle realms of energy that surround us that can impact our health and wellness.   

Shamanic Chinese medicine is rooted in the practices of the shamans of ancient China. This secret knowledge was handed down through lineages and the information was vigorously guarded; it has only recently been shared with the Western world.  The foundational metaphysical teachings of this knowledge are embedded in, and cannot be separated from, the Chinese/eastern culture. This foundational knowledge of Qi, or energy, forms the basis of all Chinese medicine healing practices.  Its history extends back thousands of years.

This program is an introduction to Shamanic Chinese Medicine. It is offered through 4 consecutive modules, each 32 hours in duration.  Each module is taught over two weekends (~ one seminar per month), and includes a combination of qigong history and theory, and opportunities to apply the theory. There will be opportunities to practice what one is learning through conducting in-person as well as distance healing sessions (with people, animals), and sharing exercises with family, friends, and other students.  

Note: we reserve the right to change the format of the program (in-person or online) should the need arise

Learning to Channel and Mediumship

Course Outline

Channeling is a skill that anyone can develop to open one’s mind to energies that exist but are not visible to the naked eye, ranging from those of our dearly departed to the higher and finer frequencies of Beings of Light, Angels and Guides, as well as our highest self – our Soul. 

One can use this skill to connect with loved ones who have passed (mediumship), or with the highest frequencies of love, wisdom and beauty available to us. 

“Opening to Channel:  How to Connect with Your Guide” by Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer

  • what channeling is, and how it is useful to you
  • a process to connect with your Highest Self, and/or a Guide(s)
  • optimal physical postures for channeling
  • how to achieve a trance state
  • how to hold a focus
  • how to attune to the Life-Force Energy of the plant and mineral realms
  • how to mentally connect with your Highest Self, and/or your Guide(s)
  • how to verbally channel your Highest Self, and/or your Guide(s)

Learn how to communicate with, and assist if needed, people who have transitioned out of physical form.  Some will come with messages for loved one, and others may need help moving on.

Take this course if you want to learn how to communicate with loved ones who have passed on, and/or if you find yourself in contact with earth-bound entities through your work.

Mediumship is the skill of communicating with those who have passed.  They resonate at a lower-frequency than Guides or Beings of Light.  You will need to know how to tune in to the invisible realms, and may need the assistance of your Guides to know how to communicate with, and/or assist, them.  This work is very rewarding, as it is usually accompanied by wonderful healing for all those involved.

Course Overview

Learn how to channel your Guide(s), connect with your HIghest Self/Soul

Course Date Level 1: April 29/30, 2023; in-person, Trickle Creek Lodge, Kimberley BC

Learn how to channel Masters, Deities, spirit animals, the guides of others (i.e. clients) and channel in a group with like-minded individuals.

Course Date Level 2: June 17/18, 2023 in person, Trickle Creek Lodge; *must have completed Level 1

Using the awareness skills gained through the channeling courses, learn how to communicate with friends and loved ones who have transitioned from physical reality into another plane of existence.  Learn how to assist those who passed, but have not fully transitioned (also known as earth-bound entities), to fully cross over to continue their soul journey.  

Caroline has many years of experience connecting clients with loved ones who have passed, and in assisting earth-bound entities to move on. 

Course Date Level 2: July 15/16, 2023 in person, Trickle Creek Lodge; *must have completed Level 1 Learning to Channel and Level 2 Channeling courses

Learning to Channel higher wisdom is beneficial for all who are on a spiritual path – to receive guidance for creating their highest purpose, knowing one’s Highest Self (one’s Soul), and being in harmony with one’s Soul, and with all life.  Learn how to open to higher thoughts and how to live and act in ways that are more joyful and harmonious.  The Learning to Channel course will assist you to bring your awareness to the higher energies that are always available to serve us! As you become “lighter”, you benefit yourself and all those around you.  Anyone can learn to channel – what is required is a sincere desire to connect with one’s guide(s) and a commitment to maintaining and strengthening this connection.

If one is a healer or teacher, Level 2 Channeling skills will allow one to channel the Highest Beings (Deities, Masters, Light Beings), animal spirits or guides, and the Higher Self of others to benefit clients, students, family, and friends.  

Learning how to communicate with earth-bound entities is called Mediumship. Some who have physically died have trouble moving forward. Connection with your guides and higher wisdom is fundamental in communicating with, and assisting, earth-bound entities to fully transition to the other side.  

Awakening Your Light Body

Course Overview

New program starting November 28, 2022!

The Awakening Your Light Body course is a “unique path of spiritual awakening through experiential, progressive expansions of consciousness that assist you in directly knowing the truth of your being”.  

The Light Body, once awakened, allows one to “experience many higher, expanded states of consciousness that take you beyond thought into direct experience of beingness”. The course was created by Daben and Orin, channeled by Duane Packer and Sanaya Roman respectively. 

The light body is awakened through “a combination of the processes and energies transmitted by Daben, and the personal and spiritual growth meditations and processes given by Orin.”

With Caroline’s coaching, you will be guided in an easy-to-follow, step-by-step program to assist you in experiencing higher states of consciousness, flowing emotions, heightened creativity, and a greater awareness of subtlest energies of existence, including the frequencies of your soul and spirit, and the “source and essence of your being”.

“The light body is compatible with and can strengthen and deepen your experience of any other spiritual practice and beliefs you have”.  It is a powerful path of spiritual growth and transformation, and includes direct transmission of higher frequencies from the realms of light.  No previous meditation experience is required, all that is needed is a willingness to practice, a joyful and playful attitude, and a commitment to your spiritual growth.
