Poropeuran nahka ja emäpuun oksa
Shamanistinen rummunrakennuskurssi


Christiana Harlen kanssa Tanja Kangas ja Jari Latvala

Päppäri, Kitee

23.-29.6. 2014

   Shamaanin rumpu on elävä ja sillä on henki. Se toimii parannustyössä shamaanin, muiden ihmisten, eläinten tai eri paikkojen hyväksi. Shamaanin rumpu sykkii maan, taivaan ja ihmisen sydämenlyönneissä monissa kulttuureissa ympäri maailmaa. Shamaanin rummun rakentamista opastavat henget ja ajan saatossa saadut kokemukset, perinteet ja tarinat. Ne ohjaavat meitä niin kuin esivanhempiamme. Kurssilla tutustumme muun muassa Pohjois-Euroopan, Siperian ja Pohjois-Amerikan tarinoihin rakentaessamme omaa parantavaa rumpuamme.

   Rummut syntyvät mäntypäreestä ja poronnahasta sekä tulesta, vedestä, maasta ja ilmasta. Luonnon, ilmansuuntien, paikan ja rummun henget osallistuvat rummunrakennukseen. Opimme shamanististen matkojen ja eri harjoitusten avulla ympäristössä työskentelemään henkien ja oman rumpumme kanssa.

    Rumpua tehdään sekä yksin että yhdessä muiden kurssilaisten ja ohjaajien kanssa. Kurssin lopussa on rumpujen vastaanottamisen ja kiitoksen rituaali.

Tämän intensiivisen viikon kestävän kurssin aikana työskentelemme henkiauttajiemme avulla tehden shamanistisia matkoja ja rituaalit. Tutustumme myös omiin shamanistisiin juuriimme ja siihen, miten käytämme rumpua omassa arkipäivässämme. Rummun avulla menneisyys ja nykyisyys ovat oppaittamme parannustyössä ja jokapäiväisessä elämässämme. Osallistujilla on mahdollisuus tehdä myös näynetsintä, vision quest eli ”ulkona-istuminen” hämärästä päivännousuun.

    

Sinulla ei tarvitse olla aikaisempaa käsityötaitoa tai puun työstämiskokemusta. Edellytyksenä osallistumiselle on, että olet käynyt shamanistisen peruskurssin tai on kunnon shamaanin matka kokemukset.
Kurssille otetaan 12 osallistujaa. Kurssi suomeksi ja englanniksi.

This year I am staying for an extended period September 11-17. I work shamanically, if such a word exists; breathwork sessions also. Sessions last 2-3 hrs. I try to operate as I learned in Tuva: arrive at your scheduled time…wait if necessary for your turn. If you are in a hurry, forget it. If you would like to have a session, please contact me via this email. If you have never been to Estonia, well, September is beautiful there! (see attachment). Services: all dependent upon what is going on with you! Might mean breathwork, hivework, curse unbinding, power animal retrievals, blessings (always), soul retrieval, ancestral work, cleaning and clearing….Spirit Knows!

Reindeer Skin and Branch of the Mother Tree

Birthing of a Shaman’s Drum

with Christiana Harle assisted by Tanja Kangas and Jari Latvala

23. -29. June 2014

Päppäri, Kitee, North Karelia, Finland
The course site is in the beautiful countryside, about 4 hour drive-train ride from Helsinki.*
     
     The shaman’s drum is alive and has a spirit. This helping spirit is intimately connected with the shaman’s healing work whether for self, others or place. Within numerous cultures over the world the shaman’s drum can be heard pulsating in earth and sky and ourselves.
     The Spirits, stories and traditions handed down through time guide us as they have guided our ancestors in making the shaman drum. We explore various stories and traditions from Northern Europe, Siberia, and North America while learning to work intimately with the Spirits in the making of our own healing drums during this intensive week. Shaman drums are often made by the shaman healer and relatives. We work individually and as a community. Drums are born from reindeer skin and split-pine frames, fire, water, earth and sky.
     During this focused weeklong period we work through our spirit helpers and the shamanic journey, connecting with the spirits of nature, of direction and place to assist our work. Participants have an opportunity to make out-sitting or vision quest during the sun filled night. Through the help of our Spirit helpers we learn how to honour our drum and begin the path of working with it. The past and present through the shaman’s healing drum are our guides for living everyday life and healing.

No previous handicraft, “artistic ability,” or woodworking experience necessary.
A basic workshop in shamanic healing is necessary to participate in this workshop or you have worked privately with someone. Please check with Christiana if you are uncertain.
There are only 12 places available on this workshop.

Course is in English and Finnish with some Swedish, Norwegian if necessary.
Never know what comes out!

*Physical location 
Google map: https://mapsengine.google.com/map/viewer?mid=zf-_yF6li2RY.kjq213Ebcfqc
The workshop site is in the northeast of
Finland in Kitee commune, in the village of Puhossalo, which is not a village so much...nearest little shop is about 10 km away. Check out the map and you will see forest, lakes....

Lodgings
The structures on this site date back to the early 1800s. An addition was added-probably early 20th century. It is one of the oldest in the region. Everyone-almost everyone-sleeps in the AITTA...this is a traditional out-building.... warm sleeping bags. Folk would sleep here cause it was cooler during the summer than in the main house (oven being heated regularly). You might share a room with someone-might not. The rooms are layered...steps and stairs. There are / is place available for those whom stairs are a bain. For those coming from abroad we can certainly arrange sleeping bags. Tents are welcome.

There is no electricity. Charging phones: we arrange daily or every-other-day to take to the old school-Kiehinen-for charging. Water: there is a well that we use for washing of self and dishes. It is drinkable, but it is also limited in amount of water. So we help along by getting 10 liter cannisters from Kiehinen-and that water is good stuff (no chemicals!!).

Toilet is a four-hole outdoor toilet- each hole a bit different sized to accommodate different ages and sizes. Of course you may sit there by yourself!!! This is the original. It has steps (two). Very nice place!

Bathing: we warm smoke sauna two times during the week. If you have not been in smoke sauna - another page is needed to describe this. Welcome to the womb. There is a washing room attached to the sauna. Hot water is available all the time. There is a wonderful
Lake nearby - about 15 min walk - where folk go sometimes when it has been a hot day. Sauna is a our sacred house- the Finnish inipi -. You will hear stories of sauna and the old ways here.

Food
Myself (with all participants at one time or another with cooking) am the cook. I love to weave between kitchen and sacred circle. It works wonderfully well on this workshop. We use gas and the huge wood oven (takes meter-long wood) or the wood-burning stove. Meals are together, vegetarian, local as much as possible, lactose free when there is milk and if there is milk, wheat free, soy-free. Beans, seeds, local berries, strawberries and rhubarb are in season, honey, buckwheat, millet, oats, rye, more honey, root vegies, top-side vegies, garlic and more garlic (helps with the mosquitos), spices and herbs, karelian pies, sour-dough rye bread, and we do have desserts!!! Special diets considered. No one has yet to starve. Chocolate and stuff: we make a trip to local shop a couple times during the week.

The Birthing
There is no special preparation-unless you want it or Spirit wants it from you. We have noticed that Spirit usually has already begun the process...we assist in giving form, materials, and helping hands in birthing of the shamanic healing drum. Ask your own Helpers if there is some way to prepare for this work!
You need a good connection with one or more Spirit helpers; ability to shamanically journey (intent, power animal along or other Spirit Helper, returning and being responsible for the afterwork) and work in pairs when doing journey work. The rest, if it is unfamiliar, we guide you.
Hand-craft skills: none needed. We teach you how to hold a hunting knife and work with it if you never have done so before! Same with all other tools. All levels of folk have arrived and folk usually help each other out.
We work in group (in the old part of house), alone, in pairs at all hours of the day-night because it only gets slightly dark (twilight)for a few hours (midnight-3 am about).
Arranged is a night out-sitting.
The drum is from split-pine and reindeer skin.
You bring along trinkets, ribbons etc if you want it decorated on your drum. We have some materials with us also.
Our ending is group ceremony lasting a few hours. This is for waking-up the drum, feeding it, blessing it, bringing it out into the public-into the family, purifying.
The whole week is one big workshop, ceremony, shamanic journey, shamanic ritual, shamanic humour and midwifery birth chamber, sauna....

Nature and Wildlife
Pine, spruce, elder, rowan, ash, willow, a few maple, birch and all in between are home to a variety of visitors. Over the years we have had bears wandering in the area, foxes, lynx, moose, eagles of variety, loons, swans, two types of snake, lizards, the elusive cuckoo has been sighted (you hear 'em!), rodents of all sorts, wolverine has been told to be in the area, wolves also but we don't talk about them because we don't want them to be noticed, owls, bats, swallows, song birds. We prepare you also for being in forest. Writing this it may sound like very wild and dangerous. The city is wild and dangerous. Out here there is nothing that wants to kill you. Oh, did I mention mosquitos? Some years there are and some years there aren't. We have netted hats in case of emergency.

How to get there
Nearest airport is Joensuu. Trains and buses and even group-share rides possible from there. It is a 15 min bus ride to the centre. From there one can find train/bus or meet up with someone for a lift.

The easiest way-if it was me: fly to Helsinki, grab the bus outside the arrivals terminal for the bus that takes you to the train station in Tikkurila-Vantaa (20 min) and grab the train to Kitee (4 hr max). Someone picks you up (usually easy!) at the trainstation in Kitee or grab a taxi (bloody expensive if not sharing with others!). From the traintstation in Kitee it is a good 30 min drive to Päppäri. Stop at local old house bakery along the way.

Finances
The workshop costs just under 600 euros. This includes VAT (because I am registered as VAT company). If you have your own registered VAT company within the EU, then I can reduce the VAT from the cost. I have one bursary meaning just cost of drum and lodgings is payable and the rest is a donation to the three of us. Payment in parts is possible. The minimum is 200 e deposit by 31.05 via paypal or direct deposit and then you can pay in parts after that ....

I have gotten a bit stricter with the payment and return policy. There are four families and the ripples attached to them in the involvment in arranging their lives and livelihood to be with participants. We trust Spirits to get those who are ready for this work to us.
If the workshop is cancelled for any reason, all funds someone has paid are returned! The final payment is 2 weeks prior to workshop beginning or paid on site (if coming from abroad). If the workshop is happening, I hold your deposit-place. Should you cancel I will return your deposit if there is someone to take your place. This is negotiable. Refund policy for full payment: 100% return one month prior; 75% 3 weeks prior; 50% 2 weeks prior. 
February brings to me cleaning and sorting, collecting piles to work with, sell, give-a-way, burn, recycle centre-it, bury and sometimes make the decision to save and repack. I moved like a wave through boxes that had been in storage for about 6 yrs....I danced through the STUFF that was left over from closing down soap-making for thirteen years.

I have alot of STUFF: trinkets, statues, books, old clothes, kids clothes, more books, rocks, incense, furniture.... How can I open new doors if I cannot even get near it cause I thought I might use something someday or give it to someone but forgot too...or the message from this stone said such and such...over 20 yrs ago? Especially if I listened and carried it out; long roll up scrolls covering a wall with drawings from journies or internal work.....Time to let go, pleeeeease!!!

With this note out to you all, I have commited one hour per day to dealing with STUFF. Any stuff that is hanging around. I am trying to not burn myself out with a spasmodic attack of GET RID OF ALL THIS SHIT! but with gentleness and honouring all this STUFF. One clue is asking my Spirit Helpers: do you go with me further or is it time to depart? And if it answers depart I ask how, where, who, etc. Delegation!! And when my head says: weeeellll, maaaaybeeee...." I know that it is time to GO!

Lighten my load, get ready for the next journey. I have often thought this as an act of helping my loved ones, my children. When I am dead and gone they don't have to go through this and wonder why Mother has saved a dozen envelopes full of feathers. Actually, they would know why...just what to do with them? And actually I only have two envelopes of feathers. Perhaps some of this will be packed in my suitcase as part of give-a-way in Canada, USA and England.

Going to make a testament that gives directions what to do with any shamanic stuff that is leftover. Yes! to answer someone's question: I am going to die. Someday...one of these days....and working on that it is about forty plus years away! That is not so far away!!!

Spirit said: get rid of things, lighten up: Closing doors, and opening doors. Closing doors and of saying goodbye, farewell, we have served each other well. Do you remember the teaching with this? Do you remember the answer we gave? Did you take care of what was given to you? It is time to go; no regrets and many thanks. Make space."

Shamaanin matka



Shamaanin matka -peruskurssi
18.-20.10.2013
Christiana Harlen kanssa

Shamanismi on ihmiskunnan vanhin hengellisen harjoittamisen muoto; perinne parantamiseen, ongelmien ratkaisuun ja tasapainon ylläpitämiseen yksilössä, yhteisössä ja suhteessa Luontoon. Tämän peruskurssin aikana osallistujat tutustuvat eräisiin keskeisiin ajatuksiin ja menetelmiin, joita shamaanit ovat käyttäneet vuosituhansien ajan kautta maailman. Shamanismi on ollut Amerikan mantereen alkuperäisten asukkaiden ja muiden meille eksoottisten kulttuurien lisäksi myös Pohjois-Euroopan muinainen perinne. Meillä kaikilla on kyky työskennellä shamanistisesti.

Keskeistä kurssilla on shamaanin matkaaminen toiseen todellisuuteen, henkien maailmaan. Osanottajat käyttävät perinteisiä keinoja: laulua, tanssia ja rummuttamista oppiakseen kuinka siirtyä shamanistiseen tietoisuuteen, tutkiakseen henkimaailmaa, tavatakseen omat Henkiauttajansa.
Tässä toisessa todellisuudessa voidaan saavuttaa voima ja tieto omaksi ja muiden hyväksi ja
koskettaa Luonnon henkistä puolta. Kurssilla opetetaan myös shamanistisen parantamisen perusteet.  Piirissä jaamme matkoilla saadut kokemukset ja opimme. Käymme läpi shamanistisen työn etiikkaa ja näemme, kuinka shamanismi voi antaa voimaa jokapäiväisessä elämässämme.

Kurssi antaa opetusta shamanistisista tekniikoista, shamaanin tiestä ja henkisyydestä.
Kurssi on alkoholi- ja huumeton. Ruoka: ota mukaan omat eväät tai lähialuella löytyy kahvilat/ravintolat.

Aikataulu: Perjantaina 18.10 klo 17.30-21.30, Lauantaina 19.10 klo 10.00-20.00, Sunnuntaina 20.10 10.00-16.00
Paikka: Mandalatalon Sali, Kansakoulukatu 7-9, 40100 Jyväskylä

Hinta: 190 sis 24% alv ja kahvi/tee tauot. Sitoutuvaa ennakkomaksu: 100 Sola Voima tilille. Perutukset: 21 pv ennen 100%; alle 50%. Loppumaksu paikan päälle. Kun olet maksannut ennakko, sait lisätietoja mikä tarvitse otat mukaan.

Ilmoittautumiset Christianalle 050 494 7030 tai info(at)solavoima.fi. Jos on jotain kysytävää, ole hyvä ja ota yhteyttä Christianaan. www.solavoima.fi
