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 and advanced initiations in core shamanism with the Foundation for Shamanic Studies. I am currently on the FSS faculty, teaching the full complement of in-person and online workshops in core shamanism.

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!

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.

Creativity is so ancient that it is at once fundamental and complex, even a driving force in our lives. Shamanism brings a fresh approach to Westerners for cultivating their creative potential. In this workshop, based on years of research, participants will have the opportunity to enhance their creativity through the practice of shamanic methods. Selected historical and anthropological examples will illustrate connections between shamanism and creative abilities, and a variety of specific shamanic exercises will be taught that participants can apply to their personal lives. (Article: “Shamanism and Creativity” by Sandra Harner.)

Shamanism, Dying, & Beyond
Taught by Narrye Caldwell

March 23-24, 2024

We will be gathering at a beautiful retreat center just minutes from downtown Soquel (Santa Cruz area.)

Participants learn how to deal with the issue of dying and the destiny of souls from a shamanic perspective. The workshop is both for those who wish to learn for themselves, and for those who wish to help others who are in terminal situations or who have already passed on. Experiences to be undertaken include learning how to become experientially familiar with the after-death realms, tracking a person using shamanic journeying, completing unfinished business, helping a person to cross over, and classic psychopomp work.
