OK I'm interested, what happens next?

There is an acceptance process that requires an interview.  The first step is to fill out the application form below and we will contact you to let you know if you have been successful.  

You will be required to undergo an online interview to enable you to ask further questions and to enable us to assess the appropriateness and  suitability of your application.  No payment is required until after the interview.

If you are successful, you will be required to pay a non-refundable deposit of AU$500.  1-2 months after paying the deposit, you will be required to pay an additional AU$1,000 and full payment AU$4,888 (Early Bird is AU$3,999 - expires 30th April) is required by the 30th September 2019.

You will receive further information, recommendations and additional itinerary over the course of 2018 to help you prepare for the retreat.

We also recommend that you enrol on other Shamanic Energy Training's weekend modules if you are interested in deeper Ceremonial offerings.
