Shamanic Counselling

Based on the Harner Shamanic Counseling (HSC)™ model, this powerful series of five sessions teaches clients how to undertake powerful shamanic journeys to connect with their power animals or teachers and retrieve information to help answer deep-held questions. Kevin Parker has been successfully employing this technique with clients with them experiencing powerful results along the way.

Timeless wisdom pertinent to the entirety of reality, a new feeling for life, new impulses and powerful mystical experiences are regularly observed results which ensue from contact with the authorities in non-ordinary reality.

Harner Shamanic Counseling (HSC)™ is an approach to counseling based on the principles of classical shamanism. The objective of the counselor is to introduce the client to the method of the shamanic journey so the client can independently find answers to important questions by directly contacting his or her power animal or teacher.

By working with this special spiritual technique, one arrives at the roots of ancient timeless wisdom and one learns to systematically access these sources for oneself and others. Through their own personal experiences, clients realise that the true authorities of shamanism are found in non-ordinary reality. The shamanic counselor is merely a helper in ordinary reality: he or she assists the client in the process of learning the methods and their application, but has no authority with regard to the answers.

In addition to the traditional shamanic methodology, Harner introduced several innovations into this work. The most important of these is the drumming track: this recording enables the client to enter the shamanic state of consciousness and thus into non-ordinary reality, without disturbing other people in the client’s surroundings.

The second innovation is the client’s simultaneous narration of the journey as it occurs, coupled with an audio recording of this narrative on a recording device. When a client speaks aloud, many impressions become clearer and perceptions become more lucid. Moreover, the entire sequence of the journey is documented by the audio recording: one can be certain that one hasn’t forgotten any essential details. Clients can replay these recordings whenever desired and thus recapitulate past journeys. This strengthens their confidence in the method and in their own spiritual abilities.

Timeless wisdom pertinent to the entirety of reality, a new feeling for life, new impulses and powerful mystical experiences are regularly observed results which ensue from contact with the authorities in non-ordinary reality.

The series can be conducted over a five-week or longer period and requires face-to-face contact.
