APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM

As of February 2014 all programs listed here are offered. There are no plans at this time to cancel any of these programs.










FOREWORD

You MUST be descended from the Celtic speaking peoples of Western Europe (Gaul & Celtiberia—France, Belgium, Switzerland, Northern Spain), Britain, Wales, Ireland, Scotland or the Isle of Man to enroll in this particular program. People in this program work with their OWN Celtic ancestor guides. If you have no Celtic ancestors you can have no Celtic ancestor guides. You don't have to be 'pure Celtic' to be in the program but you do need one or more ancestors from Western Europe (Gaul & Celtiberia—France, Belgium, Switzerland, Northern Spain), Britain, Wales, Ireland, Scotland or the Isle of Man. We do NOT teach core shamanism. We teach CELTIC shamanism.

The Society of Celtic Shamans presently offers an apprenticeship program, designed to give the student a firm grounding in and a comprehensive knowledge of the beliefs, traditions and skills one needs in order to be a Faery Shaman. Many Faery Shamans establish practices as healers and counsellors. In whatever direction your path takes you, your spiritual life will re-awaken and your day to day life will benefit greatly from the spiritual principles you learn in this program.

Each apprentice is mentored by Tira Brandon-Evans who is the Founder and Moderator of the Society of Celtic Shamans and a Certified Faery Shaman herself. Tira is available to respond to your questions as they arise. As an apprentice you will be admitted to Merlin's Enclosure. This is a private place on-line where apprentices can meet with one another, share experiences, ask questions, and form friendships with other apprentices. At least once a month you will be expected to share your thoughts and experiences in regards to your program with the other apprentices in Merlin's Enclosure. Merlin is, of course, Tira's ancestor guide, Grandfather Merlin, who is the true teacher and spiritual mentor of all apprentices in this program.


The Faery Shaman's Apprenticeship Program is only for those who are seriously committed to their spiritual lives. If you do not feel you are ready to make a 13 month commitment to your path work, please do not register for this program.
