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. 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 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 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.

Power Soul Retrieval

October 19-20, 2019

Learning shamanism is not just a matter of acquiring methods, but also of increasing spiritual power and knowing how to use it. From the shamanic point of view, people who are not spiritually “power-filled” are prone to illness, accidents, and misfortune. Anyone who has had a traumatic experience may lose a portion of their soul, of their spiritual essence. There are also other reasons this may occur. In this workshop, 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. This soul retrieval training is based on worldwide core principles and methods. It does not require Western psychological perspectives and practices.

Prerequisites: Way of the Shaman; Shamanism, Dying & Beyond; and Shamanic Extraction Healing with an authorized FSS faculty member

Shamanic Divination Training

December 7-8, 2019

One of the classic tasks of the shaman is to journey into nonordinary reality to obtain answers to questions, both at the request of others and for oneself. Participants in the workshop have the opportunity to engage in divination journeys for each other as well as for themselves and to gain experience in using various time-tested shamanic divination techniques. In the shamanic search to become persons of knowledge, they learn, as shamans have from time immemorial, how to converse with plant and animal spirits, how to learn about the use of quartz crystals, and how to seek and receive revelatory knowledge from visionary sources.

Prerequisite: the FSS Basic Workshop, The Way of the Shaman®, with an authorized FSS Faculty Member.

Way of the Shaman–The Basic Workshop

January 25-26, 2020

During the Basic experiential workshop, participants are introduced to core shamanism, the universal, near-universal, and common methods of the shaman to enter non-ordinary 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. Participants are initiated into shamanic journeying, aided by drumming and other techniques for experiencing the shamanic state of consciousness and for awakening dormant spiritual abilities, including connections with Nature.
