Banniere Aztia, bask shamanism

Aztia, bask shamanism

Basque society is known to have managed to conserve and develop despite many obstacles, its language, its culture, its heritage through the centuries. But what about his spiritual heritage?

Is there nothing more than tales and legends to make our children sleep? After many years of study, with the collaboration of Filipe Lesgourgues, meetings, explorations and travels, we invite you to rediscover this wisdom that hides in the depths of our forests, by the fireside of our chimneys. amatxi but first and foremost at the bottom of ourselves.

Thanks to the many discoveries (and those to come …) that we have made, we can clearly testify today that we are talking about shamanism, that is, specific practices of modified state of consciousness connecting the person to powerful potentials, reconnecting her to her land, to her spiritual autonomy. These tools, concepts and techniques will allow you to reconcile yourself with this immemorial knowledge that has its place in our modern life whether you are Basque or not.

———————————-

Knowledge is the light of humanity. Because only knowledge allows us to mark our destiny from generation to generation. This treasure is built for millennia but a large part escapes us today because the material supports of knowledge (papyrus, books, magnetic tapes, DVDs …) arrived very late in the history of humanity. Gorka Etxarri is one of those people who roam the world to listen and observe people who possess an unwritten knowledge that they hold through a very special relationship to the world: shamanism.

Gorka does not affirm anything, he collects data and tries to know if we here in our old Europe have traces of this ancient knowledge. Convinced that knowledge does not belong only to Academies or Universities, Gorka continues his journey and shares what he discovers. Like a storyteller, he amazes us and shakes our certainties to invite us to cultivate our relationship to the world and to human society.

Eskualdunek, mendez-mende, sasi guzien gainetik hodei guzien azpitik zaindu eta zabaldu dituzte euskara, kultura eta ondarea. Haatik gogo munduaz zertan datza?

Ipunak eta lehiendak haurren lokarazteko ote dira soilik ? Ainitz urte danik ikasiz, Filipe Lesgourgues lagun, topaketen, aurkikuntzen eta bidaien ondoren berriz argitan emaiten dautzuegu aintzinako zuhurtzi hau ohianetan edo supazter ondoan kukutzen dena bainan oroz gainetik gure baitan. Agertuko direneri eta guk eginik azterketeri esker argiki diogu aztiaketaz mintzo girela. Erran nahi baita gogo aldaketaz, indarrekilan loturetaz bertzeak bertze.

Erakasbide hoietaz gaurko egunean adin gabeko jakintzarekin bat egiteko bidea agertaraziko dautzuegu, euskaldun izan edo ez 2017ko epailetik uztailaren arte 4 ikastaldi ukanen dituzue 15 jendearendako. Ikastaroetan Euskal mundua, gogoak eta izaiteak ikertuko ditugu. Nolaz lokaria egin eta nolaz bertze munduarekilan elkartu ikasiko dugu, jakitate horri esker gure biziaren hornitzeko.

Castellano

La sociedad vasca está reconocida por conservar y desarrollar , a pesar de muchos obstáculos, su idioma, su cultura, su patrimonio a través de los siglos……
No obstante que pasa con su patrimonio espiritual ?
Sólo quedarán cuentos y leyendas para que duerman los niños ?

Después de muchos años, en colaboración con Filipe Lesgourgues, entrevistas, exploraciones y viajes, le proponemos descubrir de nuevo esta sensatez que se esconde al fundo de nuestros bosques a la lumbre de la chimenea de nuestras abuelas pero sobre todo al fundo de si mismo.

Gracias a muchos descubrimientos ( y los por venir ) que hemos hecho, podemos claramente atestiguar del ” chamanismo ” es decir prácticas del estado específicas de conciencia modificado conectando la persona a potenciales fuertes, la conexión a su tierra, a su autonomía espiritual.

Estos instrumentos, conceptos y técnicas permitirán reconciliarse con este saber inmemorial que tiene su sitio en la vida moderna que sea vasco o no.

Un ciclo de formación de 4 cursillos reservado para un grupo de 15 personas como máximo se establecerá de marzo a julio 2017.

Durante estos cursillos, estudiaremos la cosmología específica del País Vasco, las entidades, los espíritus.

Aprenderemos cómo conectarnos y comunicar con este otro mundo para enriquecer nuestra vida gracias a este saber.

Ejecutaremos ceremonias, rituales, cuidados, visitas de lugares emblemáticos de la tradición vasca.

Esta formación con base la práctica dará un cambio concreto en su vida de cada día y una visión del mundo que le rodea.

English

The Basque society is famous for having managed to keep its language, it’s culture and its heritage throughout the centuries and despite all the obstacles.
But what about its spiritual heritage ? Is there nothing else than legends and bed time stories ?
After several years of studies among which a collaboration with Filipe Lesgourgues , and after encounters, explorations and trips, we are offering you to rediscover this wisdom shared next to the fireplace of our amatxi, hidden deep down our forests and deep down ourselves.

Thanks to the several discoveries we made (and those that remain to come), we can definitely assert that we are dealing with shamanism. We are dealing with special practices involving a modified state of mind which connects the human being with powerful potentials, reconnecting it with Earth and with its spiritual autonomy. These tools, concepts and techniques will help you to reconcile yourself with this timeless knowledge which should have a place in our modern life, wether you are basque or not.

Four training courses dedicated to a maximum of 15 people will be taking place between March and July 2017.
During these courses, we will study not only the specific cosmology of the Basque country, but also the entities and the spirits. We will learn how to connect ourselves and how to communicate with this other world in order to enrich our lives through this knowledge.
We will conduct shamanic ceremonies, rituals and treatments together with visits to the symbolic places of the Basque tradition.

This training is based on practice and it will lead to a drastic change not only in your daily life but mainly in your vision of the world.
