Smudging – a Shamanic Tradition

Sunshine Spirit Co. » Products Page » Shamanic Workshops » Smudging - a Shamanic Tradition

Smudging is a powerful cleansing technique that has been used for centuries as a Native American tradition and other walks of life. Essentially it is the art of cleansing your self and your environment for simple ritual and ceremony. We are all energy--everything is energy--and as such we can collect emotions that hang on to our energy body. Our homes, objects and bodies do not consist of purely physical matter; they also vibrate with subtle, invisible energy. Cleansing a space or our bodies with techniques such as smudging clears away all the emotional and psychic garbage that may have gathered, perhaps over hundreds of years.

The smudging technique can drive away stagnant and negative energies to allow us to put ourselves and environment back into a state of balance. Used as a preliminary to almost all Native American ceremonies, this workshop concentrates on the technique of shamanic smudging. To define it more clearly, shamanic smudging is the burning of herbs or incense for cleansing, purification, protection of physical and spiritual bodies, banishment of negative energies and creation of sacred space.

This workshop will consist of the following:
**a short discussion on the basics of shamanism and how smudging relates
**why we should smudge and when
**the various herbs and plant matter that can be used and why
**the ceremonies or rituals that smudging can be used
**learn how to smudge yourself, home and the benefits of doing it
**learn how to open sacred space
**learn other techniques beyond smudging such as burning resin or incense and the proper tools to do so

In general, shamanic smudging can be used in daily life for practical purposes: to restore physical, mental and emotional balance; to shield against and clear negative energies; to cleanse yourself, your belongings and your space; and to restore you sacred space.

This is a 3 hour workshop that includes a smudging bowl and smudging stick to get you started on your own.
You must register for this event. Space is limited. All workshops are conducted at 6964 Konitzer Rd, Stiles, WI unless hosted at stated locations. Email, message or call for any questions. 920-360-3694.
