Coldspring Healing Arts
Santa Cruz, CA

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 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.

Shamanism for Inspired Local & Global Change

Oct. 17-18, 2020

In these challenging times, shamanic work, when combined with ordinary reality knowledge and action, can make an immense contribution toward effective long-term solutions for community and global problems. Shamanic divination – asking the fully compassionate spirits for answers to questions – is particularly helpful in providing inspired and workable ways to address complex issues in ordinary reality.

This workshop offers practical methods to gain and apply wisdom from the spirits to resolve persistent problems facing humanity, our precious Earth, and its inhabitants.

In this workshop, you will:

  • Practice applying shamanic divination/journeying methods to the problem-solving process
  • Use shamanic divination to gain insight into real-world issues you care about
  • Examine ethical guidelines and issues of permission
  • Look at some of the personal benefits of spirit-inspired community action
  • Explore possible ways to ethically invoke the presence and power of the compassionate spirits in our world

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

Advanced Shamanic Healing Practice

Dec. 5-6, 2020

This two-day workshop is designed to provide to students with advanced FSS training, the opportunity for hands-on healing practice using multiple core shamanic methods.

The first day includes a review and practice of these primary methods: extraction healing, power animal retrieval, psychopomp work, and power soul retrieval. General parameters of a shamanic healing session as well as important ethical considerations will be discussed.

On day two, participants will have the opportunity to offer a complete shamanic healing session for another workshop participant. Afterward there will be group Q & A and discussion focused on clarifying the methodologies and addressing issues that arise during the healing sessions.

This training provides students the opportunity to “put it all together” by applying multiple core shamanic healing methods in a solo session for another participant. This is also a rare chance to exchange information and discuss shamanic healing with other advanced practitioners.

Those who are beginning a shamanic healing practice, as well as seasoned practitioners seeking to increase their proficiency, can benefit from this hands-on training.

Prerequisites: Please click through to the information/registration page to view the prerequisites for this course. You must have taken the required workshops listed, with an authorized FSS faculty member, to enroll in Advanced Shamanic Healing.
