Join shamanic healing practitioner Ernie Flores in an exploration to discover modern tools for our health from the ancient art of shamanic healing. Learn about the mystical “shamanic journey” and how it works. Learn the benefits of meeting and engaging with your animal spirit guide. We will discuss how trauma can be healed through “soul retrieval” and ancestral lineage healing. These ancient techniques open up new avenues for healing, which aren’t as easily accessible in traditional psychotherapy. Most people are unaware of what shamanic healing is about or have misconceived ideas about it. Learn about the shamanic core beliefs and how shamanism seeks to bring people into “right relation” with the totality of life.
At the end of the presentation, Ernie will open up sacred space with shamanic drumming and lead a short journey to experience the “Hollow Bone” exercise. This exercise is used to open your heart and clear your mind so that you can be open to hear spiritual guidance more clearly. It’s a tool used to get your analytical mind out of the way.
Ernie Flores has been living in the Rogue Valley of Southern Oregon for the past 23 years. He has a passion for being in nature, music, and spirituality. He is a student of life.
Ernie has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from UC Santa Barbara and a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. He has been supporting people with overcoming trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and substance use disorder for over 25 years in his work as a therapist. He has been studying shamanism his whole life. He wrote his master’s thesis on the healing qualities of altered states of consciousness, which included shamanism. However, it wasn’t until 2021 that he received his formal training on learning the core shamanic skills, and this was a dream come true for him. His teacher is a world-renowned medicine woman, and she has spent her life training with many indigenous elders, learning the shamanic arts. She is devoted to teaching people the core foundational shamanic skills through an accredited shamanic practitioner certification program that she developed, which Ernie graduated from.
Ernie is a shamanic practitioner and owner of Flores Shamanic Healing where he offers private sessions and workshops on shamanic healing. His goal is to offer folks an effective way to heal from trauma that is based on Earth-centered practices and tapping into our own internal healing resources.
