Shamaness – A day of becoming

Shamaness – A day of becoming

Discover the Shaman within…

In this day of metamorphous we support you to connect to your innate abilities as women. We take you on a journey of remembering, using ancient practice and embodiment processes. Through connecting to your sensory abilities and expanding your sense of reality you will see what is possible in your every day. This workshop is accessible and integrative as we work with every level of the human experience, supporting you to cultivate your forgotten and hidden capabilities.

The Shaman was the wise one of the village, the counsellor, the healer and the adviser. We invite you into your innate wisdom, so that you may be your own Shaman in this world. Be the navigator of your own world as you lead with your intuitive heart and mind. This is a day of remembering, experiencing and integrating, so be prepared to change your world as you know it…

The Day Ahead

Introduction: we begin in circle to connect and share the day ahead


Facilitators share personal stories of their living connection with ancient wisdom traditions of Hawaii, Peru, India and Gondwanaland (Australia)


Connect with body wisdom and remember what you are capable of through a guided meditation practice


Tune into a deeper layer of your body’s wisdom and your sensory abilities through guided movement processes. Integrate this is your daily life using common daily activities, with shamanic ways of being. Feel more of your intuition and your potential.


We look at the beliefs and stories that hold us back, peeling away the delusion so we may live more freely. Reimage your life with a new sense of who you are.


We affirm our selves and our truths through written word and spoken word. In being witnessed we prepare to leave the cocoon and be accountable to living life grounded in our truth, so that we may reclaim our life.

This workshop is a space to begin your journey of remembering and deepen your connection to who you are. It is the start of a series of workshops that prepare you for a traditional rite of passage. You can find out more about the rite of passage on our workshop page.

About the facilitators:

Karla & Johanna are co-Founders of the Young Shaman Foundation. They are also healers, running private practices in Melbourne. Both have a lived experience of transitioning from mainstream society into a deeper reconnection with spirit in their daily living.

Karla Riddell

Karla integrates Perivian, Hawaiian and Australian shamanic practices into her daily life. She draws on her experience as a paramedic and embodiment facilitator to create transformational rites of passage that support people to reclaim their life. Seeing rites of passage in the every day, Karla brings through a new way of being, by embracing transformation and letting go of fear to come back to the simplicity of love and presence. Gentle by nature and strong in heart, Karla supports your journey, so that you may be the navigator of your own world.


Johanna Scott

Johanna has a deep living connection with Indian awareness and compassion traditions. She draws on her experience as a management consultant in business and with non-profit organisations to feel the embodied experience of love and fear. She discovered her own path to returning to loving embodiment in her way of living. Now she creates learning opportunities for people to discover more about themselves and return to a deeper connection with themselves as love. She has a big heart, a soft nature and a steadiness that reflects so others may see.
