Light The Spark Medicine Wheel

Shamanic Practitioners Course 2020 with Barbara Hess

(4 Weekends Friday – Sunday plus training days)

Anam Draíocht Centre Ardmore Co. Waterford. F


The Medicine Wheel is a major symbol of peaceful and healing interaction among all beings on mother Earth. It represents the natural cycles of life and the basic way in which the natural world, including humans, moves and evolves. The power of birth, death and rebirth are encompassed in the medicine wheel, as well as each individual’s path towards personal growth and personal realisation

Together in sacred space we go and find our path: a journey of truth , harmony and peace and support each other through the 4 directions of the NORTH , EAST,SOUTH and WEST to achieve Ayni: healing, health and harmony.

NORTH : Element the Earth, travelling back to source through emotional waters with the salmon.

EAST: Element the Air, healing and seeing things from a higher perspective with Eagle and the Condor.

SOUTH: Element the Fire, letting go /shedding our skin like the serpent

WEST: Element the Water, reborn from caterpillar to a butterfly with unconditional love of the stag and the doe.

The LIGHT THE SPARK MEDICINE WHEEL incorporates core principals shared by many indigenous cultures from North American Indians, Celtic Druids and Andean Inca Tradition (Peru).

Barbara will share her vast, in depth knowledge and experiences she has gathered studying shamanism in Ireland and Peru mainly through John Cantwell and Karen Ward (Sli An Chroí – Celtic Shamanism in Ireland), Paul O’Halloran (Pathways Teaching) and Juan and Ivan Nunez Del Prado from Cusco (Mystics and Andean Priests Peru/Inca)

The mesa or misha is a power tool of the ancient Inca. Our personal mesa or misha will contain 13 Khuya (empowered sacred stones). It is a sacred medicine bundle used for healing, ceremony, prayer and divination. At each direction, we add 3 more Khuyas, moving forward, turning our inner wounds into light. It transforms our stories as we travel through the Medicine Wheel.

  1. THE GREAT COUNCIL OF THE GRANDMOTHERS with the NET OF LIGHT helping us and the world to embrace the Sacred Feminine.

  2. Learn the practise of ILLUMINATION, EXTRACTION, SOUL RETRIEVAL, and ANCSTRAL HEALING and GUIDE OF SOULS: At each direction you will break through your issues, fears and problems to move forward.

SOUL RETRIEVAL: Soul Loss fragmented self: Vital Essence of the Soul can leave the body when someone suffers physical or psychological trauma and finds a safe place in other realms. This healthy mechanism helps us to survive without experiencing the full impact of the trauma. Soul loss can be caused for example by abuse, severe accidents, death of a loved one and can manifest in chronic illness, bad health, depression, addiction, feelings of fear etc. Using ancient shamanic soul retrieval, soul loss can be healed with dramatic success.

RELEASING INTRUSIONS: Emotions of hate, envy or anger from someone else or even our selves can become crystallised toxic energies embedded in our body .

Intrusive Energy or entities from this life time or past life times can embed themselves within the central nervous system and can produce for example: anxiety, depression, addictions bad health and mood swings. Using our tools: rattles, drums, micha, crystals and prayer we learn how to safely take these heavy energies and send them to the proper place in the Universe.


Ancestral healing: involves healing your ancestors’ unresolved emotional issues, problems or trauma, in doing so it releases you from any energetic patterns that link you to them. Such patterns can have an inhibiting or disruptive influence in your life today. Most indigenous cultures believe that their ancestors are a vital force in their lives. Ancestral healing is based on the belief that what happened in your family before your current life is present and alive in your energy field today. Ancestral healing allows us to make peace with the members of our family going back many generations.

GUIDE OF SOULS RITUAL: Learn how to heal a loved one or soul just departed and help them to find the way into Love and Light.

Each Weekend of the

Shamanic Practitioners Course 2020 is Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
