Self Empowerment through a Shamanic Way of Life
Walking the Spiral Path is a blend of ancient and ancestral wisdom with modern contemporary shamanism.
Walking the Spiral Path offers experiential practices of the Shaman for direct engagement with spirit.
This series of 3-day intimate residential retreat intensives in the San Francisco Bay Area is appropriate for all levels. You may start with any retreat. Each retreat may be taken separately.
With each spiral we let go of old ways and roles as we walk the Path to transcend, evolve and become more self empowered. Regardless of where you enter the Spiral Path, you experience this evolution.
Class Size is Limited.
You walk the spiral path from wherever you begin – whether a beginner, an experienced practitioner of shamanism or a spiritual practitioner – always deepening your path and growth in order to reach Transcendence.
Kent Dorsey, Center for Shamanic Healing and Girvani Leerer, PhD, The Shamanic Psychologist, formed Earth Spirit Way to offer heart-centered teaching on Self Empowerment Through a Shamanic Way of Life. They bring a unique blend and balance of the Divine Feminine and Masculine, and of Core (Cross-Cultural) Shamanism and Andean Indigenous Wisdom to their teaching.
Whether your goal is personal growth, healing and self empowerment; understanding your own divinity; learning the wisdom of the shamanic world view; joyful attainment of your dreams; greater understanding your Life’s Direction; or being a healing presence in the world; those who choose to walk this path with us will experience profound transformation and a renewed sense of purpose.
Each class may be taken separately.
You may start with any Class.
Together the Series offers a path of Awakening, Initiation & Empowerment within a safe sacred community of like-minded people.
In each Class, we will use the lens of the Cycles of Life and Nature as a guide to the Journey on our Personal Medicine Path.
Walking the Spiral Path continues throughout life. As we grow and deepen our learning we continually experience the Cycles of the Seasons: Birthing New Beginnings ~ Spring, Growing and Blossoming ~ Summer, Harvesting the Fruits ~ Fall, Remembering our Soul Journey ~ Winter. With each spiral we let go of old ways and roles as we walk the Path to transcend, evolve and become more self empowered. Regardless of where you enter the Spiral Path, you experience this evolution.
Universal shamanic practices of direct engagement with Spirit will provide access to our personal wisdom and knowledge. Receiving ancient Shamanic rites will upgrade our DNA and energy body, connect us to a lineage of teachers and wisdom keepers and deepen and accelerate our Journey of transformation. We will create a personal altar, a Medicine Bundle, to hold our healing and empowerment.
Kent Dorsey and Girvani Leerer are brilliant and compassionate teachers with a true depth of shamanic knowledge and experience to offer. Anyone who studies with them will receive a wonderful shamanic education.

Birthing New Beginnings – Spring NEW SERIES TBD
We begin to Walk the Spiral Path in the East within a Safe and Sacred Community. Honoring the Cycles of Nature, we enter the Labyrinth of Transformation in the Spring, the Time of new beginnings and the dawning of a new way to Be in the world.
Our journey starts with our Intention and Imagination to vision our path and our highest possibility. We discover and connect with our helping spirits and guides in a process that continues throughout our journey. Spending time with Nature and the land, we begin to reconnect and remember our place in Nature and with All our Relations.
We find our personal Creation story and experience the deep love from which we were created, and in ceremony we experience our Birth to this Earth Walk. We walk the path to our personal transformation and to awaken our healing power and presence.
Growing and Blossoming – Summer
We continue our Journey with a turn of the wheel along The Spiral Path, Growing and Blossoming into Summer, Honoring the South. We come together to deepen Community and Grow our Potential.
With Concentration and Focus we find and clear the old stories that keep us bound to the past, identifying with our history and trapped in unhealthy patterns. Honoring what has been and finding the gifts in these experiences we unleash fuel for our journey of growth and blossoming.
Re-inventing ourselves, we shed the old worn out ways of walking in the world. We find our new power through our Power Song.
We find our new power through our Power Song. We work with our special destiny, magnetizing and tapping into our creative center, our inner wellspring. We Find the place of joy, love, courage, and sense of deserving from which we create, grow and blossom.
Harvesting the Fruits – Fall
We continue our Journey with another turn of the wheel along the Spiral Path, Maturing into Fall, Honoring the West. We return to harvest and give thanks for the gifts of Growth and Blossoming. Entering the Dark time of the year, we find Rest and Nurturance, a place to pause and de-stress from busy lives before beginning the hectic holiday season.
We come into Harmony and Balance by honoring our whole Selves, our Shadow aspects: from our lives, our ancestral lineages, our karmic legacy. We honor the shadow as a healing energy embodied in the dark of the Moon cycle. We open to healing and reclaim and restore our power.
Remembering our Soul Journey – Winter
Moving into Winter, we honor the North, the time of Union with Source and Transcendence. In shamanic cultures, winter is a time of death, a transition into transcendence.
We remember our Soul Journey beyond roles and personality. We travel beyond time and space to that which is beyond Death. We honor our Descendants, dreaming a new dream for the times to come. We remember and claim our soul’s purpose.
As we release what no longer serves, we return to Center, coming back to things we thought we understood with Increased Knowledge, Seeing Deeper Truths. With Love, we Create a New Dream of Transcendence, a new vision for our life and for the World.
Step up and work together in a circle of healing for yourself and the world!
