In-Person Shamanic Teachings With Eileen O’Hare in Beacon

Eileen O'Hare

Spiritual healer and teacher Eileen O’Hare has returned to teaching in person and is offering several Intro to Shamanism one-day workshops at the Healing House, in Beacon, as well as a year-long intensive Medicine Spiral 15 course in Beacon.

The workshop—a prerequisite for Medicine Spiral 15—will be offered from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. August 21, August 28 and September 2. Medicine Spiral 15 will take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. the second Saturday of every month beginning September 10 through August 12, 2023. If weather or COVID-19 requires, the course will move online.

“Teaching shamanism is my joy,” shares O’Hare. “Gathering kindred spirits into a coherent spiritual healing community is my jam. These ways save my life every day, and sharing them is my destiny.”

With regard to her teaching style, O’Hare says: “I am a weaver. My teachings are rooted in the healing traditions of the Andes, while including threads from other ancient spiritual traditions and current techniques brought to us by neuroscience.”

During the Intro to Shamanism workshop, participants will learn about the fundamentals of shamanic practice, including 7 sacred directions, 5 elements, 3 worlds, energy-clearing practices, spirit guides and totem animals. While this one-day immersion is a prerequisite for Medicine Spiral 15, O’Hare says, “It’s a great standalone teaching, even if you’re not interested in Spiral.”

According to O’Hare, Medicine Spiral 15 is a good fit for those ready to do deep healing work; those yearning to find a safe, sacred space; those ready to learn tools and techniques to offer healing energy; and those ready to join in a powerful process of cleansing and clearing, balancing and harmonizing, and illuminating their own energy.

Medicine Spiral 15 participants will be initiated into the mystical, healing ways of the Bundled Mesa Carrier tradition from the Q’ero in Peru. The course will include working with ancestors; deep personal work; healing tools, techniques and transmissions; and the Munay-ki rites.

“Come and join the fun,” enthuses O’Hare. “Become a cherished member of a vibrant, spiritual healing community.”

Cost: $150 for workshop; preregistration required. Location: The Healing House, in Beacon, NY. For more information or to register, call 914.456.7789 or visit
