Shamanic Healing Classes
Andean Shamanism with Mary Rutherford
This new series of classes focuses on personal growth and healing through Andean shamanic
techniques, with a North American flavor.
Through a series of approximately eight monthly meetings, we will explore the systems of seeking
knowledge and healing using concepts from the indigenous peoples of the Peruvian Andes.
These people, the Incas and pre-Incas, were masters of managing energy and communicating
with the world of the spirits. Their sacred archeological sites are complex and mysterious, a
reflection of their cosmology.
The classes will teach both self-healing techniques, and some systems to be used on others, if
you desire. The purpose is to heal our past (where all healing must start), and emerge into our life
as a light-carrier and peaceful warrior.
We will begin by learning the Andean concepts of the energy body and physical body, health and
healing. We will learn to communicate with trees, stones, and animal guides or spirits. Each
person will develop and build a personal mesa, or altar.
We will cover, in the first few months, journeying to the “other worlds” to seek healing and
communicate with spirit guides; Soul Retrieval techniques; using shamanic techniques to deal with
specific issues, such as facing fears, releasing foreign energies, and manifesting one’s dreams. I

This ongoing class will meet approximately once per month, beginning March 26, 2011, and
continuing on the fourth Saturday of the month, from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
Cost for each class: $100.00. ($100.00 deposit will be applied to the last class.)
Location: Minnetonka, Minnesota
