“I recently completed my shamanic first year training with Cynthia Nado, and I am looking forward to second year training already!
"All of the elements of this training experience were thought out with love. I could feel that at love at each step. Cynthia Nado has an established relationship with the land on which she teaches and as her student I began to see that I too could connect to the land in this way. The lessons are designed to gently immerse you into a new level of truth. Cynthia is a skilled teacher who guides you deeper in such a way that you are prepared for the next step when it arrives.
"I met Cynthia Nado on Nov 10, 2016, after the presidential election. We met for the first time as two women, working in the same building, sharing our sadness and fear. That meeting began my journey into the study of Shamanism.
"I have experienced many Shamanic classes and workshops with Cynthia (and Cecile Carson), including How to Journey, Drum Circle, Introduction to Shamanism, Shamanic First Year. My Shamanic trainings with Cynthia have been consistent. Sacred space is prepared. She shares her knowledge on the highly respected and ancient practices of Shamanism. She provides a safe place for moving into and about non-ordinary reality and for returning to ordinary reality. Healing, guidance, and growth are experienced.
"Classes and workshops I have attended were held in a variety of settings: a boutique, a place of worship, Brighton Pathways to Health, and her home. Upon entering, Cynthia’s peace and balance and her respect for all is felt. Her relationships with the spirit world, ordinary reality, and nature are balanced; Sacred Space is evident. Each time I meet with Cynthia and a group of fellow students of Shamanism, I feel a peaceful readiness to learn more about the Shamanic way of life. I feel the safety needed to be the ‘hollow bone.’ I sense that Cynthia created sacred space before our arrival.
"Also, Cynthia and Karin Cole performed an AMAZING house clearing and blessing for my younger son and I that changed the energy in our home for the better.
"I encourage anyone inclined to learn more about the practice of Shamanism to participate in any of Cynthia’s classes and workshops."
