Essential Information

For R2R year 1 graduates considering the next level, please note

The Year 2 Return to Reverence Immersion is an in-person offering for those who have completed the Year 1 R2R program and have demonstrated the dedication and drive to bring in further medicinal elements. The focused priority is on healing the Self, with mentorship on safely integrating certain techniques into any existing private practice you may have, or should friends and family ask you for your support. The Year 2 program is offered as a skill set complimentary to the work you have already done, and will do in the world. ​It is not "Practitioner Training" but will draw on your abilities and instinctual nature, to help others, the earth, and yourself. This year we will spend more time with each way of working than in the Year 1 format, and each aspect is essential to establish before the Vision Quest experience. The Solo Work for the bigger aspects will be ongoing throughout the year with milestone check-in points, and two full months of focused preparation for the Vision Quest are needed. The application process is influenced by your time in Year 1, your motivation for continuing, and ability to dedicate to the work. If you need a gap year to further anchor your spiritual lifestyle, you may be able to join the next year's offering of Year 2 with another group.

Juliette Jarvis

Meet your facilitator

As a bean feasa living in Powell River BC, I work with the medicines within the land of this beautiful unceded Coast Salish Territory as well as the traditions of my Scottish and Irish ancestors. People come to me for personal healing work, to attend ceremonies, and to establish an animistic, earth-centered, 'shamanic' way of living. Online supports for your spiritual practice through videos, audio recordings, magazine articles, and discussion groups are also available. My journey into 'shamanic' practice began in 2007 with an intensive 3 year practitioner apprenticeship within a Celtic lineage. By January 2013 I was offering community gatherings, workshops, and monthly journey circles in both Squamish and North Vancouver BC. 2015 saw a small focus group be created called "Shamanic Living", then I expanded my training with Sandra Ingerman's two Shamanic Teacher courses before the focus group evolved into two, full year long immersion programs - the "Shamanic Living Immersion" and "Shamanic Medicine Ways program". In 2019, in consideration for the origins of the word "shamanism", these programs were merged into a two year offering and re-named as the "Return to Reverence Immersion" The online guided programs and self-paced courses that you find here are my response to growing interest outside of my region and to accommodate community members who have been unable to attend these programs, workshops and events due to distance or timing. I hope you will find supportive teachings, guidance in reclaiming your cultural heritage, and a deeper sense of connection with the natural world, the spirit realms, and to yourself within these offerings.
