These programmes are offered by Bhola Banstola, a long lineage Nepali Shamanism with many years of experience in providing knowledge and skills to both beginners and advanced practitioners.

Our weekends, and our short and long retreats, will introduce you to the traditional ways of the Nepali Shamanic Path, incorporating Shamanic active journeying by playing the drum and singing the sacred songs, part of the enormously powerful techniques used by our earliest ancestors to access wisdom beyond the range of ordinary senses.

Shamanism, as humankind’s oldest spiritual healing practice, helps us in addressing past events, enriching the present moment and envisioning the future. Universally recognized, spiritual healing supports our emotional and psychological health.

For millennia, Shamans have been using their gifts and sacred tools in healing emotional trauma, relieving anxiety and depression, reducing physical pain and helping their communities to live full lives with more security and confidence.

The different levels of transmission and empowerment help aspirants (students who aspire to develop these skills) to connect to sources of profound power and tap the soul’s infinite potential. Thus it opens ways to solve today’s challenges and help us feel more fulfilled, confident and joyful. Participants will also learn how to use time-tested methods to effectively receive guidance, visions, insights and healing tools for self-empowerment and helping others through rituals, dances, sacred songs, active journeying, mantras chanting, and of course drumming.

All our transmission and empowerment events are independent of each other. Of course, the necessary understanding and practice are both essential in order to proceed to deeper levels of training and experience, so we recommend that everyone attends the Introductory Transmission.

We are ready to travel to any destinations wherever there are people interested in discovering and immersing themselves in experiential aspects of the form of Shamanism which is a living tradition of the people of Nepal to this day.

Our transmissions are not limited to indoor practices, of course; we also offer outdoor ceremonies and practices in more remote natural surroundings.

We can arrange to guide and accompany any aspirants who are interested in deepening their practices in Nepal with Shamans of different cultural backgrounds, holders of ancient lineages, both men and women.

Thanks you and Namaste

(JANUARY 30, FEB 6 AND 11, 2022)

This short, three-session Zoom course will focus on the very core of the Dhami-Jhankri Shaman’s work – the Mind and the Soul. This is very different from how these concepts are understood in the West and other Shamanism forms.
Participants explore the nature of Consciousness and the Soul, what it means in this cosmology, our work with the Deities and Spirits and more.
The Shaman’s body and the performance of ceremonies are unified with this Mind essence, and we will bring together such aspects as Trance, Dreams, Visions and Omens.
In this traditional context, only the ‘Saato’ part of the Soul can be lost or stolen, and you will learn about a specific ritual called Saato Bolaunu, which is used to restore it.
This transmission helps to understand the Shaman’s ‘spirit at work and how it may function on the recipient of their work, bringing a state of healing and well-being. We will also discuss the spiritual and emotional state of the recipient in the aftermath of recovery, dreams interpretation and more.

The Course is open to aspirants of any tradition, culture, spiritual practice and shamanism.

The transmission will be in English with a Nepali glossary of terms and phrases

Video recordings and short notes will be uploaded to the FB group page ‘only’ for the participants.
Besides the stipulated time, the participants will have ample time to discuss and Q & A sessions will be available.

Times: 20.00-22:00 Italian Time
Place: Zoom Online Event
