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 in-person advanced shamanic healing trainings. At the current time, we are teaching online workshops only. Check each workshop for relevant prerequisites.

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.

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 Shamanic Journey: Pathway to Knowledge & Power (online) or the in-person Basic Workshop, The Way of the Shaman. AND 2. Shamanic Divination in Practice (online) OR any of the FSS in-person advanced weekend workshops.

A live online workshop
Taught by Narrye Caldwell

March 12 & 13, 2021
Friday 1-4:30, Saturday 1-4:30 (pacific time)

The shamanic worldview underpins the ethical and effective practice of shamanism. Experiential knowledge of this worldview leads to a profound awareness of the sacred nature of our world and an awakening of compassion, resulting in a deep desire to relieve pain and suffering and restore balance and harmony.

Using journeying and experiential shamanic methods, in this online workshop you will have the opportunity to personally explore and experience the fundamental aspects of the shaman’s worldview:

  • Everything is alive and has spirit
  • Unity: We are part of, connected with, the totality of nature
  • Independent spirituality, the shaman as “one who knows”
  • The implications of these principles related to permission when doing shamanic healing and divination

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 Practic

Taught by Narrye Caldwell

March 19 & 20, 2021
Friday 1:00-4:30; Saturday 1:00-4:30

Effective shamanic practice depends upon knowledge of the spirit realms and how to access them to build strong relationships with the compassionate helping spirits. Powerful shamanic healing requires training, discipline, and experience.

In this experiential workshop, which sets the context for the Shamanic Healing Online Training Program, you will have the opportunity to personally explore:

  • The three worlds of the shaman (Upper, Lower, and Middle Worlds) and the qualities of ordinary and non-ordinary reality;
  • The nature of the spirits of the three worlds;
  • Middle World non-ordinary reality spiritual aspects and their relationship to illness and wholeness.

Primary shamanic healing methods will be described, including shamanic extraction healing, psychopomp to help the spirits of the deceased, and soul retrieval. You will learn and practice power animal retrieval, with the chance to work with another participant to both retrieve and receive a power animal.

A Live Online Workshop

The shamanic journey is a remarkable visionary method for entering into another reality with discipline and purpose. Using classic drumming techniques to alter consciousness, participants will be introduced to the shamanic journey to awaken one’s soul and dormant spiritual power.
