Celtic shamanism traditions, experiences focus of April 12 talk

By UW-Barron County

Danise Shipley is a certified shamanic teacher and practitioner trained at the Women’s Academy of Irish Shamanism and Spirituality, Lowell, Mich. In the course of her studies, she has traveled to Ireland 18 times, visiting many sacred sites and collecting the stories and teachings from this ancient land.

In an April 12 presentation at UW-Barron County, the Ridgeland, Wis., resident will explore this feminine branch of the Irish shamanic tradition, covering the Celtic Wheel of the Year and the three worlds of shamanic experience. Shipley also will discuss how this tradition connects with ancestors, goddesses, elements and elementals.
