"It's only with one's heart that one can see clearly."
The workshops described below are planned to fit within various time-frames, from a week long, weekend or full–day, to three and six hours.
Each workshop can stand on its own or combined with others, expanding them into two or three-day seminars, that serve to deepen the participant’s experiences and knowledge. This would also make it possible to intersperse music and movement-forms, alongside the more emotional parts. All workshops can be held either indoor or outdoor in nature.

INTRODUCTION TO SHAMANIC VISIONING
Each of us has shamanic visionary powers. Glimpses of these abilities can arise at any age in the form of intuitive dreams, déjà vu, spontaneous visions, and out-of-body experiences. Most people dismiss these experiences. However, by embracing these gifts, we can unlock our shamanic potential to change the world around us and ourselves.
Discover how shamans the world over shift their consciousness and enter into the unseen realm of dreams and visions that hold the key to balance, health, and thriving in today's world.
SOUL MENDING: How to Heal Spiritual Traumas with Soul Retrieval
Traditional shamans view “soul loss”—the wounding of a person’s spirit as a result of trauma, especially when it’s suffered at an early age—as a leading cause of physical, emotional and psychological dysfunctions. Usually unconscious, the impulse—to deaden one’s feelings to avoid the unbearable pain of trauma and still be able to carry on—is a wise survival strategy of the psyche, but it takes its toll. The shamanic approach to healing this condition is to journey into the inner spirit world, locate the “lost” part of the soul, and retrieve and reintegrate it into the psyche to return to wholeness.
In this class we’ll learn shamanic techniques to:
* Travel to the spirit world and access the wisdom of inner guides
* Diagnose soul loss symptoms
* Develop the ability to “see” the source of our own and other people’s traumas
* And perform soul retrieval
The Night Watchman: Amazonian Guayusa Dream Tea Ceremony
This is a powerful experiential intensive shamanic evening into the dimensions of dreamtime, and altered states. It is a vision quest that challenges your inner warrior, your sense of space, time and direction, as you step in into the mystery of dreamtime.
In a special traditional ceremony we honor the Guayusa tree spirit with chants, songs and music. As we sip the sacred tea, we go into a deep meditative silence in darkness to encounter and communicate with our spirit guides and other spirits to enable us to bring new visions and awareness into our lives.
The Amazonian Kichwa of Ecuador believes that the Guayusa plant taught human beings how to dream. It is also called “The Night Watchman” as it sharpens the hunter’s instincts keep focused energy and has night vision and awareness. Kichwa families drink gourds of Guayusa around the communal fire from dawn till sunrise as a way to create a tribal bond and rejuvenate their spirit and bodies. During this time, they share their night’s dreams as the shaman interprets them so they can plan the day’s course of action. This is also the time when the elders teach the youth about ancestral myths, hunting practices and social ethics.
Guayusa, similarly to yerba maté, is a medicinal plant that contains caffeine without the rugged edges and it’s filled with healthy antioxidants. It also has theobromine, found in chocolate, and L-theanine, found in green tea. You will feel fully alive. It is not hallucinating; it simply activates the brain, not allowing it to go deep into theta/delta states (below the level of the conscious mind), which allows you to “see” your vision.

DISCOVER YOUR LIFE PURPOSE AND LIFE LESSONS:
We all came to Mother Earth, with a special gift; a unique path to walk on, a soul selected Life Purpose. This Life Purpose is more than a philosophical nicety – it is a very personal and pragmatic statement of life intent that, when known and integrated, functions as a daily compass.

If you ever felt there is a dark cloud around you that prevents you from moving on in your career, relationships and life or make the right decisions.

These methods can be highly effective in ridding us of physical, emotional and psychic blockages and permitting far greater vitality and fulfillment. Come equip yourself with time-tested, powerful practices to protect your physical and emotional well being.
SHAMANIC DIVINATION AND DIAGNOSTIC TECHNIQUES: Developing psychic and healing intuitional powers
Every healing system needs methods to diagnose illness or imbalance. The most ancient of all healing traditions is shamanism. Shamans and healers the world over has for millennia trained to be able to ‘see’ into their patients’ physical, emotional and energy bodies, to observe them and then decide the best way to bring about healing. They do this by journeying in “non-ordinary reality” to obtain information about the causes and cures of their clients’ conditions from the spirit world. In this intensive course we will focus on mastering some of shamanism’s diagnostic techniques. This will include learning how to: access and develop connections with a range of spirit helpers, such as power animals, inner teachers and guides, etc.; scan and perceive the “three bodies”; develop intuitive hands; “read” the flames of candles; use stones for divination, and more. We will have the opportunity to practice hands-on with our fellow participants. We will leave this class ready to begin using these ancient tools and techniques on ourselves, our family and friends, or, for those of us in a healing profession, with our clients.

MUSOK NINA: Shamanic healing of the Sacred Fire
Many of us, because of cultural intimidation, trauma and abuse learn to shut down our internal fire. We learn to settle for mediocrity, depression and sadness. In this workshop we will ignite the Sacred Nina, the spark of creativity, passion and joy in our lives.
Nina in Quechua, the Inca language, is the Sacred Fire that resides in the lower part of our body. It is the furnace that burns inside ourselves, and is associated with creativity, vitality, life giving energy, internal power, passion, and sexual energy.
There is no word for sex, in Quechua. Two people who engage in the act of sharing the Nina are merging the two most powerful life forces of the universal energy, those of Tata Inti (Father Sun), and that of Pachamama (Mother Earth) magma core, in a dance of creation.
In this evening we will celebrate the power of the Sacred Nina. Using indigenous shamanic techniques we will journey to connect with Nina's spirit and power individually and in pairs. We will be giving offerings and sacrifices to Nina in a fire ceremony (using candle). Through movement and dance we will shake ourselves from obstacles and integrate Nina's power into our body and lives again.
You will get in touch with your dark side by igniting Nina, the spark that resides in your own body and soul. We will uncover and remember the light within us. We will celebrate the joy and happiness with a release from darkness into the magic of light.

SHAMANIC SOUL HEALING OF OUR MOTHERS:
There are so many things we never dared saying to our mothers from our heart. So many things we withheld from them. There are also many things our mothers never allowed themselves to tell or share with us.

Shamanism & Theater
(Workshop at Łaźnia Nowa Theatre)
Is it only a placebo effect or theater?
“Oh, it is just hocus pocus or theater, a Placebo Effect just give me a pill and that’s that,” I was told many times by scientific, skeptic minded people from all walks of life. Implying that shamanic healing has no real curing and healing value. “What’s wrong with that?” I always reply. Scientific research proved again and again that the results were the same when half a test group was given sugar pills and half Aspirin pills, unbeknown to them. So why take a chemical if your mind can heal your body and emotions? Both, the shaman and the western doctor use theatrical effects to gain their clients trust and confidence. Think of it, both practitioners wear special attire, set up a
special environment, perform rituals and create ceremonies. I believe that rituals, ceremonies and storytelling of all indigenous shamanic traditions are the foundation and inspiration for what we call theater and are used essentially as a tool for a large-scale community healing. I had a great example of it when I witness it first hand in Guatemala in Chichicastanego during the December 21, 2012 new 13th Baktun ceremonies, which my friend Tucker Robbins invited me as a consultant as part of a film crew documenting it on the invitation of the Queche’s spiritual leader Don Tomas who we hosted in New York a few months earlier. The stage was set in the middle of that large town square bounded by two old churches on both sides, built over ancient Mayan Sun and Moon temples. For twenty-four hours, groups of Queche Mayan shamans, children, men and women dressed in their best traditional colorful ceremonial clothing brought to life their twenty Naguals stories and shared the tribe’s heritage and wisdom. It was one of the most moving experiences I ever witnessed, one, which enabled me to enter into pure infinite dreamlike world, transcending
limitations of time and space.
I stood there quietly and in awe, In the midst of large circles of hundreds of local and some tourists. It was two in the morning, at the last ceremony before the new Baktun begins at sunrise. In the background the voice of the master of ceremony came strong through the many loudspeakers as he was narrating the ceremony and engaging the audience with their creation story and teaching. All the while the hypnotic marimba xylophone rhythm helped us all enter into a trance. Heavy clouds of thick smoke covered the entire square, rising from the multi color candles and copal balls that were put into the five bonfires. The strong distinguish scent of the copal filled the chilly air and our
nostrils. Moving rhythmically in circles some of the participants offered the raging fires devotional prayers and asked personal questions. They stopped, looked into the flames patterns, colors, and directions and waited for answers. Others moved from one fire to the 21 next to feed and stoke them to keep them alive. Dancers wearing animals and deity masks brought them into life as they shapeshifted into them with great agility from one side to the other of the square. There were a few moments that time truly stopped and I found myself transported into an infinite mystical reality. The young and old audience seemed wholly immersed in the unfolding saga as they followed the teaching, gaining knowledge of their calendar, deities and heritage. They also I sensed gained affirmation in their tradition, pride in who they are and strengthening their self-identity. As the sun rose in the east above the town’s cemetery, the ceremony ended. The big crowd started marching down the hill and then climbing up into the cemetery. As they passed between the graves they paid respect to their ancestors on the way to the first ceremony of welcoming the new Baktun. Truly a mesmerizing collective healing materialized.
There is plenty of scientific research today that proves without doubt that the mind, body and spirit connection is responsible for creating demonstrable physical changes in our physical and emotion bodies, on the cellular and hormonal level for humans and perhaps animals and plants too.
Both the shamanic and theater practices aspire to circumvent our skeptical, cynical and critical logical mind–our Gatekeeper–by creating a sacred non-ordinary space and reality in which physical life and belief system can be challenged and transcended. And they successfully achieve it through the use of emotional, non-verbal, symbols and sensual engaging narrative. Their storytelling are helped by special effects, lightning, and enticing décor arrangements. They use the voice, songs and instrumental sounds. In both the main characters are hiding themselves behind animal or human masks, or paint their faces while wearing special wardrobe. It enables us to challenge and transcend our limiting physical world and belief system and enter us into a time and space where
everything is possible. Dream a different life dream and create magical transformation, as it a liven all our senses to response, including that mysterious “sixth sense’ of vision and knowing.
THE SACRED TREE OF LIFE: A Shamanic exploration
Amongst all indigenous cultures, the Tree is held to be a symbol of life, wisdom and the entire cosmos, as well as a sacred object of rituals, prayers and ceremonies. The Jewish tradition, too, reveres the trees, protecting them in time of war (Deut. 20:19) and comparing those protected by God to trees, as it is written, "He will be like a tree planted near water..." (Jeremiah 17:8). The Torah itself is often called the Tree of Life. Is there a deep meaning to this coincidence? Can we learn something from this metaphor that is relevant to our daily lives? Join Itzhak Beery in an experiential workshop to discover the relationship between trees and our bodies, spirit and souls. Using shamanic techniques aided by rapid drumbeats, chants and body movement, you'll become aware of the type of tree you are. Are you a lone, fruit bearer, or a shade and shelter-giving tree? And what seeds are you planting for future generations? As you embrace your own tree and feel the oneness with the universe, you'll be able to restore the flow of life back into your own body and life.
NATURAL WORLD SPIRITS: Techniques to restore spiritual power, health and the environment
This workshop will introduce participants to the principals of the shamanic belief system. We will learn shamanic journey techniques, which enable us to enter non-ordinary realities, and to travel to other worlds to obtain personal Nature spirits and Huacas, or magical objects. Participants will learn how to connect with the spirits of nature and to retrieve specific knowledge to heal diseases and wounds, settle disputes, communicate between the living and the dead, pray for the well-being of the environment, others and ourselves. Using these powerful techniques will enable us to affect changes both physically or spiritually in our everyday reality.
We will work in nature so that participants will be able to connect both physically and spiritually with trees, rocks, stars, wind, flowers, water, the four directions and the four elements. Participants will learn different shamanic journey techniques, which help restore spiritual power and health. They will learn how these techniques can be applied in daily life to heal oneself, others, and the planet by restoring balance and harmony.
s Restoring harmony with nature is especially important in these times as over consumption, air and water pollution, and rapid deforestation, are threatening our natural resources daily. It is throwing us out of balance physically and spiritually. Participants will connect with nature and the other inhabitants of this planet, and learn the importance of living in balance and unity.
PRIMEVAL MOVEMENT: Shapeshifitng into and trancedancing the Power Animal Spirits
This workshop has two parts. In the first, the participants learn to use shamanic journeying techniques to travel in other worlds and to find their power animal spirits. The participants then learn to connect with the spirits and how to retrieve specific knowledge, wisdom, and healing; this information can be then manifested in their every-day experiences.
In the second part, accompanied by drumbeat and other sacred musical instruments, the participants will learn to connect with their power animal energies by focusing their attention and shapeshifting. The participants will emulate the physical form of these animal natures. We will dance, chant, and move with them. This movement opens the animal nature within, connecting us to our true nature, release tension, and helps to find universal balance within us. While in this state, participants will be able to journey and communicate with their power animal spirits, ask for specific knowledge, for healing and to find true clarity to help with life’s challenges.

- Mosoc Nina - The Sacred Fire
Ignite your passion and gain life’s vitality.
Going through life without knowing or connecting to our own unique passion could be difficult and depressing. Mosoc-Nina in Quechua, the Inca language, is the Sacred Fire that resides in the lower part of our body.

Father Sky, Mother Earth
Embrace your masculine and feminine energies.
Heaven and Earth are revered in all the shamanic traditions. They are the oldest shamanic god archetypes. The infinite blue Sky-father represents our masculine energies. He rules all celestial spheres including our thoughts and teachings. His counterpart, the Earth-Mother, represents the feminine energies and our earthly experiences and is a grounding source. Both relate to different aspects of ourselves. Identifying and embracing both energies equally is perhaps the secret of living in true balance and harmony.

This soul part usually do not come back on it’s own and after the retrieval an integration period needed to enable it to accustom back into our lives. It brings back newfound balance and joy.
People who suffered soul loss many time feel like there is something missing in their lives, like hollow emptiness in the center of their being. They often suffer depression, addiction, and other physical symptoms as autoimmune system.

"Beit HaDin" Life's Court
A special Kabbalistic & Shamanic workshop
with Rabbi Ohad Ezrahi
As the Jewish New Year nears, the long summer days shorten and it is becomes time to prepare for the autumn and winter months. In this time, one is called to make "Chesbon Nefesh," to search one's soul, so that when one stands before the creator one will have a reason to ask for another year on this miraculous Earth.
In this exceptional evening we will learn the sacred meaning of the Rosh HaShanah tradition, the celebration of the Jewish New Year, and utilize shamanic journeying and drumming techniques to explore the deeds of the year past and connect to our inner directions and wishes for the future.
VILDÉ CHAYYE: The Sacred Animals of the Kabbalah and Shamanic Teachings.
With Rabbi Ohad Ezrahi
Come join us in this collaboration teaching with Rabbi Ohad Ezrahi (A renowned Kabbalist and an author from Israel) in a rare visit to New York and Itzhak Beery from the NY Shamanic circle.
In this experiential workshop, through storytelling and shamanic exercises we will explore the symbolic naming of the mystical Kabalistic and ancient shamanic traditions. We will deepen the knowledge of our traits, behaviors and actions so we may learn to utilize them appropriately in our lives.
You will learn to enter non-ordinary realities, learn to journey to the animal energies of the Tree of Life and others who were named in the sacred books and in the verbal shamanic tradition. You'll also learn to shape-shift into them, allowing you to merge with and find out your animal nature’s a reflection of your innermost self that represent those qualities you need most in this world, but which are often hidden, or repressed.
As it said: God teaches us Derech Eretz (The Earthly Ways) through the animals and birds. This is one of the reasons why they were created.
THE GATEKEEPER: Shamanic & Psychotherapy Techniques for Obstacle removal
With Monique Lang
Join Psychotherapist, healer and author Monique Lang and Shaman Itzhak Beery in an intensive workshop as we look into the role our conscious and unconscious mind plays in the course of our lives. We will explore the blocks and obstacles resulting from beliefs or decisions we made in our past. Some of these beliefs and decisions become our Gatekeepers, preventing us from becoming the person we came here to be, living a full, vibrant and happy life.
In this one day workshop we will learn tools from both disciplines to get to know the gatekeeper and foster a new relationship with it to bring in new energy and understanding, improve creativity, and achieve our life purpose.
In this workshop you will learn how to:
* Connect with the Gate Keeper
* Understand how it came to be
* Appreciate how s/he has served you
* Replace the beliefs and decisions that the Gatekeepers perpetuated with more affirmative ones.

DISCOVER YOUR LIFE PURPOSE AND LIFE LESSONS: Hand Analysis & Shamanism
With Richard Unger
We will be calling on our own spirit guides for insights and on Richard's palm and fingerprints expert reading.
Discovering your life purpose - the reason you're living the particular life you have - is likely the single most important understanding you can ever achieve for yourself. The search for life purpose is as ancient as civilization itself. We all ask, "Why am I here on Earth?" "What is the purpose of my life?" "What am I here to learn?" These existential questions are universal and are asked by many people, often in desperate situations, who know, deep down, that the experiences of their lives are not arbitrary, that there are reasons, if only they could understand them - then their lives would have meaning. Your life purpose is your north star in the dark night as you navigate your canoe. It is the compass by which your soul directs your life journey. It is the key to realizing who you came here to be, and what you came here to accomplish.
