Coldspring Healing Arts

Narrye Caldwell, L.Ac.

Welcome to Cold Spring Healing Arts. Over the past 30 years I have developed expertise in a number of traditional healing methods that I now offer 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. I also have in depth training in core shamanism, classical feng shui, and Chinese astrology. Currently, my private practice is exclusively devoted to shamanic healing and pole star astrology.

I invite you to reach out to me through the contact form on this site. Let me know what you’d like help with, or what you’re curious about. Also check out my classes and workshops, or put yourself on my mailing list (click on the photo at the bottom of the column on the right) to receive announcements about new offerings.

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

 

My New Book On Chinese Astrology Is Now Available!

Some of you know that I’ve been working for several years, in my “spare” time, on a book about Pole Star Astrology, otherwise known as Zi Wei Dou Shu. Well, “Spirit of the Stars: Navigating Your Fate With Pole Star Astrology,” is finally out and available, both here on my site, and on Amazon (hint: it is less expensive to buy through my site!) Read more about it on either page.

 

Workshops in Core Shamanism

“After having personally practiced shamanism, shamanic healing, and shamanic journeying for more than half a century, I can say that there is nothing I have encountered in reports of the spiritual experiences of saints, prophets, psychedelic drug experimenters, near death survivors, avatars and other mystics that is not commonly experienced when following classic journey methods using a drum.”  — Michael Harner

As a faculty member with the Foundation for Shamanic Studies, founded by Dr. Michael Harner, I teach the full complement of online and in-person workshops in core shamanism.

Way of the Shaman: Shamanic Journeying, Power, and Healing, is the prerequisite workshop for all in-person advanced shamanic healing trainings. The Shamanic Journey: Pathway to Knowledge and Power followed by Divination in Practice, are the prerequisites for more advanced online workshops. Check out the Getting Started page on the FSS website for more information about trainings in core shamanism.

Inspired Shamanic Practice:
The Essentials of Effective & Principled Shamanic Healing

A Live Online Workshop
Taught by Narrye Caldwell

Nov. 19 & 20, 1:00-4:30 pacific time

Tuition: $150 (FSS members $140)

An effective shamanic healing practice depends on a combination of factors, including authentic and rigorous training in methods and direct experience with clients. As a spiritual healing method, the pragmatic aspects of the profession may be easily overlooked, and yet can make the difference between a valuable experience and a profoundly healing one from the client’s viewpoint.

A well-designed container for your healing practice that supports your clients and inspires you, can considerably enhance the effectiveness of your work. This training is appropriate for those beginning a shamanic practice who want advice on what issues to consider and how to proceed, as well as for seasoned healers looking to dialogue with other practitioners and to deepen their own work.

Purpose of the workshop:
To help you develop an ethical, effective shamanic practice that has integrity and is based in respect for all beings;

To offer you guidelines and ways of deciding for yourself regarding ethical issues – such as whether there is permission to do shamanic healing work in a specific situation – rather than “one size fits all” rules or answers;

To increase the professionalism of the practice by helping you create a supportive “container” that enhances your practice, including appropriate boundaries, safety, and freedom to practice within that container.

What will be covered: Ethical issues such as permission, talking with and screening potential clients, what to do before and after a session; brief legal considerations (not legal advice*); practicing with integrity and respect; and some pragmatic aspects of an effective shamanic practice.
Prerequisites:

  1. The Basic Workshop: The Way of the Shaman (in-person workshop)
  2. OR The Shamanic Journey: Pathway to Knowledge & Power AND Shamanic Divination in Practice
  3. Recommended* The Shamanic Worldview: Everything is Alive (available online only)

7 FSS Continuing Education (CE) Credits available. Completion of the entire workshop (7 hours) is required for credit.
