The Woman Rising Shamanic Practitioner Training Program

More than a program, this comprehensive journey is for women who want to go deep.

Women excited to learn practical, tangible processes for Healing. Women brave enough to do their own, inner work. Women yearning for more intimacy with self, others, and Nature. Women called to evolutionary edge of the Earth Priestess and Medicine Woman lineage: right here, right now. 

Shamanism is not a belief system but a way of living in relationship with all of life.

The word “shaman” comes from the Tungus tribe in Siberia, and it means spiritual healer, one who sees in the dark, or one that sees with their heart. Shamanism is the most ancient spiritual practice known to humankind and is still practiced in every continent.  

Shamanism is part of every culture’s history, it may be called by a different name, but a spiritual practice that recognizes The Spirit That Lives In All Things — is a Shamanic practice. There is a part of “Shamanism” in each of our cultural heritage— it’s in our bone memory. (Can you feel the tug of knowing inside you?)  

In the past, people viewed the practice of Shamanism, outside of traditional cultures, to be another way that “white" people have taken from indigenous cultures. And that is/ has been true. Then, there are teachers from indigenous cultures that are teaching “white” people Shamanism, because their Guides have told them that their medicine needs to be shared globally for the Planet and all her inhabitants to survive. 

The name “Shamanism” is now a collective title, for a worldview and healing practice.  

Shamanism's worldview is a way of life, which is an intensely personal relationship to the Spirit that Lives in All Things, the Divine, Goddess, God, Nature, Source, Higher Self, Guides — all who help empower us, to maintain balance, and to teach us about Unity.  

Shamanism is not a belief system but a way of living in relationship with all of life. A Shaman is a man or woman who interacts directly with the spirits to address the spiritual aspect of illness.  

Shamanism is a way of life, it's about your deep personal relationship with all Beings— seen and unseen. This relationship teaches you about: aspects of myself (as with-in so with-out as above, so below) and ways work in collaboration with my Helping Spirits for healing, balance and to be in right relationship with everything.  

There’s nothing like facilitating true transformation.

Holding space as someone sets down the burdens they were carrying. Walking with them through the darkness, into true freedom.

In moments like this, we understand and embody our purpose. We live as a sacred flame of Love. And help everyone around us do the same … ushering in a new world of peace and Truth. 

This is sacred activism. This is compassion in action. This is the magic I pray for you. 

Become a gateway to true healing through a unique integration of . . .

About your mentor: Damini Celebre 

The Shamanic lineage that I share in this program is not from a specific culture, rather it is from the Shamanic lineage as a Whole. The root of all indigenous cultures (yours and mine) is a deep connection to the worlds surrounding them, the Web of Life, which includes: Earth, Air, Water, Fire, Animal, Bird, Rock; our ancestors, descendants; our helping and guardian spirits.  

In this program, you will learn to “see with your heart,” explore ways to build your relationships with your trusted guides and teachers, so that you can craft a Shamanic practice that is unique to you — for both personal healing and the healing of others.  

My primary training is in core shamanism, the brilliant work of Sandra Ingerman, and profoundly gifted ingenious practitioners. The gift that each teacher offered me were ways to deepen my own unique Shamanic practice.

For the past twenty-five years, I have practiced Subtle Energy Healing, Shamanism, and Five Element Acupuncture, maintaining a private healing practice in the Philadelphia area.  

Drawing from my vast experience as an artist, healer, and educator, I wrote the book entitled Painting the Landscape of the Soul: A Journey of Self-Discovery. This book skillfully weaves my three passions: Shamanism, creative arts and healing arts into a unique and powerful approach for awakening the creative self.  

Damini has been trained as an expressive art facilitator and is part of Sandra Ingerman’s Alliance of Shamanic teachers. Damini’s work comes from the heart and continues to be a shining example of the healing power of creativity. She is actively making and exhibiting her artwork and teaching workshops across the United States and online: daminicelebre.com

 "Since completing the Shamanic Practitioner Training Program with Damini, I have noticed significant shifts within my inner and outer world. I am more confident and now feel a deeper alignment to the web of life, which is rippling through all aspects of my world in an incredibly positive way.  

The Shamanic Practices and tools that I have learned have been supportive in not only my own personal growth, but have been a great asset for my work as a Flower Essence Therapist. I have found that since completing the training I am now able to support my clients healing and growth in profoundly positive ways – helping them on the physical as well as the spiritual.

A bit more about what sets this program apart … 

A hybrid virtual-and-live format 

You get the best of both worlds: online and in-the-flesh. We begin in-person, spending our days learning shamanic tools and practices that are made even more powerful because they are done in an intimate, group setting. And then we finish the training online for 6 months and you will experience that there is not time and space and Shamanism can be taught, understood, and deeply experienced through the internet

Experience for yourself the power of Shamanic Counseling & Healing

During the retreat, there will be time to receive sessions from other students or even from Damini as a demo. Sessions may include: power animal retrieval, plant ally messages, messages from Spirit, AE sessions, Loss of Essence or Workign with Intrusions and Depossessions. And of course throughout the entirety of the program, you will be invited to do personal healing as well as continue to receive from other women on the journey with you.

An exceptionally rich Sisterhood

Because of the intimate size of this group and the depth to which you will be exploring, the 11-12 other women will become true Allies and Sisters, witnessing and supporting you. And you will offer that in turn to them as well. 

I am deeply invested in your success. As a Sister and as a practitioner

You’ll get more than a training — you’ll get a mentor. Damini is one of the most extraordinary practitioners you will meet. She is absolutely real and present. She lives the Shamanic Path.
