Narrye Caldwell, L.Ac.

nar_09Welcome to Cold Spring Healing Arts. Over the past 25 years I have developed expertise in a number of traditional healing methods that I now combine in my private practice and teaching. My early training was in Traditional Chinese Medicine and martial arts, and these still inform my view of what it means to cultivate health, beauty, and wisdom in the modern world. In the past 15 years I’ve added in depth studies in core shamanism, classical feng shui, Chinese astrology, and nutrition. You will find information here on all of these specialties.

If you’re curious but not sure what would be most helpful, I invite you to schedule a free consultation at my Santa Cruz office. Just use the “scheduling” button above. Also check out my classes and workshops, or put yourself on my mailing list (see below) to receive announcements about new offerings.

Thanks for visiting, and I hope to meet you soon.

Workshops in Core Shamanism

As guest faculty for the Foundation for Shamanic Studies, founded by Dr. Michael Harner, I teach Basic and Advanced workshops in core shamanism.

“Way of the Shaman: Shamanic Journeying, Power, and Healing,” is the prerequisite workshop for all advanced shamanic healing trainings. I offer it twice a year, usually in the spring and fall. 

 Mark Your Calendars for the following  2018 workshops in Santa Cruz:

Power Soul Retrieval Training–February 24-25

        Participants will learn about soul loss and soul retrieval from a shamanic perspective. There will be a particular emphasis on the importance of shamanic power to do successful soul retrieval. Participants will also learn how to re-empower a client’s soul after it has been returned so that the client is once again spiritually power-filled, leading to greater health and well-being.

Please note, participation in this program requires these prerequisites: 1. Shamanic Extraction Healing AND Shamanism, Dying, and Beyond; OR 2. Completion of the Two Week Shamanic Healing Intensive . To find out where you can take these, go to the workshops tab at the FSS website:

Way of the Shaman: Shamanic Journeying, Power, and Healing–May 19-20

This is the starting place for all training with the Foundation for Shamanic Studies. During the Basic experiential workshop, participants are introduced to core shamanism, the universal, near-universal, and common methods of the shaman to enter nonordinary reality for problem solving and healing. Particular emphasis is on the classic shamanic journey, one of the most remarkable visionary methods used by humankind to explore the hidden universe otherwise known mainly through myth and dream.

The Shamanism Practicum–June 23-24

Are you considering starting a shamanic healing and/or divination practice and would like some guidance? Do you have an established practice and would welcome the opportunity to discuss ethical issues and other pragmatic aspects with other practitioners?

This two-day workshop provides participants with guidelines for the development of a healthy shamanic practice. Subjects to be covered include the ethical practice of shamanic healing and divination; legal considerations; what to say to potential clients; the screening process; payment issues; useful forms to have; organization of your practice; and other pragmatic matters related to practicing shamanism in an ethical, professional, and effective way. The workshop will be a combination of lecture, discussion, and interactive-experiential exercises, including journeying. (Completion of Way of the Shaman is a prerequisite)

Registration for Way of the Shaman and the Shamanism Practicum will be up soon.
