Global Healing and Restoration

The Certificate in Advanced Shamanic Studies is an advanced spiritual pathway of actively working with the powers of stellar light, the great forces of nature, the deeper levels of shamanic power and knowledge to initiate change and bring global healing and restoration.

As an apprentice master shaman over the 24 months your role will be pro-actively standing for the sacred to restore order and balance and bring ‘maat’ – truth and order to any situation, work, event, experience you are involved in. Through walking the path of surrender, in conjunction with working with 24 highly revered master teacher plants you will be able to incrementally work towards attaining transpersonal enlightenment.

Work with Master Teacher Plants

The 24 master teacher plants that stepped forward to assist you on this journey are the Orchids, Fern Allies, and Sacred Mountain Grasses from First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand®.

In the spirit of the Aquarian Age you will be working cooperatively with these highly specialised master teacher plants to bring balance, harmony and restoration to humanity and the planet itself.

The Medicine Woman Rainbow Warrior of Peace© is a potent and focused force of restorative energy who singularly and collectively having heard the call naturally seeks to work for the greater good of humanity and the planet in total dedication to the will of Spirit.

Uphold Greater Levels of Light

You will be challenged and equally you will be supported, tutored and encouraged to uphold ever greater and more intense levels of light. You will be accompanied by your fellow Medicine Woman Rainbow Warriors of Peace©, your helper spirits, power animals and ancestors. You will be supported by the venerable master teacher plant spirits and accompanied by the mighty gods and goddesses – the atua who watch over the lives of Medicine Woman Rainbow Warriors of Peace©.
