Within all our work at Shamanics in Portugal we are not constrained by rigid boundaries. Rather we allow the energy circle to inform the teachings as each circle is unique. In this way teachings are blended and adapted to suit the individual – opening our hearts to the wonders of all we can learn every day from our experiences.
We offer you our learnings and teachings. We offer them to you with open hearts, and a knowing they will help guide you to yourself, your soul self, to be in your full potential.
Each event will provide you with different perspectives on how to integrate the spiritual insights and techniques of shamanism into your life. As each event is unique, so is each ceremony. Whether it is by yourself or in a group.
All events include meals, vegetarian, as well as refreshments through each day. As our purpose is to connect and be in balance with nature, the Shamanic Earth Centre at Quinta da Ribeira site is off-grid. This is also the case for Quinta da Luz, where some of the events and coaching is held. We view ourselves as caretakers and so seek to ensure minimal impact from our presence.

The Vision Quest is a ritual handed down and still practiced in different forms by many peoples throughout the world today. It is an opportunity to allow yourself to pause and re-evaluate your life.
In group work and in solitude, it can be used as a means to step from where you are in your life, to where you want to be, to what you desire to change, to find answers you have found hard to discover in today´s busy world.
When there is a calling to quest, your quest has begun. In The Valley of Rainbows Shamanics in Portugal offer you the opportunity to re-discover yourself. It is not necessary to fast for the duration of your quest, we ask only that you consider doing so to gain the fullest experience.
We gather on the afternoon to meet the other participants and for orientation. The last part of which will be taking a walk to view the rocks, river and woods, so starting the process of deciding where you wish to quest. There will be time to set up tents in the camping area before a communal evening meal, for those who have yet to decide to fast.
The first of the three days will be spent working in the communal sacred space, preparing you for your quest, the shamanic way. With the help of the drum, journeying to meet your guides and helpers for your quest. In doing so beginning to move away from the mundane and ordinary and shift into the non-ordinary.
Information will be offered as to what you can do whilst out on your own in your sacred circle, how to make your space and tools to assist in your quest (physical and non-physical!). Working with nature, spirit, your guides and yourself.
If you have no previous experience of journey work it is required to participate in the half day Introduction to Shamanic Journeying before the Vision Quest.
After your return on the third morning, we gather to break-fast and have a rest period. All then return to our ceremonial circle where we spend time sharing our quests, investigating, reflecting and drawing them together. We end with a final ceremony before we gather for a celebratory meal at the end of Sunday.

Working with the Ancestors –
Ever felt that whatever you try to do you remain in the same pattern? Have you observed yourself saying and acting in the same way as one or both of your parents? Have you heard stories of how your family has always been held back? Is your expectation of relationships the same as your parents, even your grandparents?
If you are seeking to be free from the limitations of your family lineage, then this event is for you.
This event assumes experience of journeying. It will provide you with the opportunity to meet your ancestors and clear any energetic contracts, fields and patterns.
At Shamanics in Portugal we seek to blend practices from various traditions. All recognise the importance of recognising the influence of our ancestral lineage.
In ceremonial space you will journey to be introduced to your personal chosen ancestors and explore how they live on in you. The purpose being to bring balance and healing to you and so your lineage.
During the two days, there will work in communal sacred space and out in nature. You will be introduced to various techniques, including shamanic journeying, to explore the ancestral lineage of repeating patterns of behaviour and belief. Seeking to bring balance and freedom into the line.
This is deep and cathartic work and very powerful in its approach. It is said that in working on healing our ancestral lineage, we go back and forward seven generations in its healing.
