Second course in the Siberian Cycle, we work with the Spirit of the West, Erlic. Mother Umay of the South was the first in our series.

Erlic is the Spirit of the past and of transformation. He is in the west. He is guarded by a red wolf. The red wolf clears up by eating whatever we are ready to release. He takes that to Erlic, and then you will begin to feel the changes in your whole being that will allow you to grow and renew.

Erlic can help turn illness and distress into powerful transfiguration. In working with him, we become open, honest and clear about our own shadow, our own emotions, and we can learn to bring the positive power of transfiguration though, even from the hardest aspects of life, to make the core energy we experience a missile of purpose instead of destruction. 

The Siberian Cycle takes us through our lives, as we unfold in time. Part of our experience as humans is soul loss and energy depletion. We do soul retrieval and essence infusion through our healing process with Erlic. Once we have let go of the structure of illness and other unpleasant and unhelpful aspects of being, we can then recover our essence and power to begin again. 

We will do many ceremonies with him, including the Two Lakes Ceremony. These are the lakes of our past and our drama, and they are the places we can finally release and transfigure the trappings of our past. 

The Erlic course is also perfect for us when we are trapped in the attitudes of our community. Because sometimes framework we need to change is not of our making. Erlic is the way we can create positive change in the whole way we walk in the world.

    Wonderful cook and animal lover!

In an earlier career I was traveling on cruise ships around the world, working as a cabin stewardess which gave me the gift of meeting many people of various cultures, traditions and with different habits. In answer to your question, “Yes~ It was that fun… and that hard.”

Since my youngest years I’ve been always guided by just one thought: it really doesn’t matter where our path will lead us, nor the influence of the external world on us. All that matters is our Inner Connection with our True Self!

Joanna’s outline of the 4 weeks:

Week 1:   The role of Erlic Spirit. Transformation and letting go. Illness as the possibility to make space for the new. Erlic’s blessing and initiation.  During this lesson we shall take a close and new look on Erlic’s energy. Our Spirits will teach us how to work with Erlic’s energy and his helpers for transformation and healing. We shall receive our initiation to the energy of Erlic.

Week 2: Predators as spirit helpers of Eric. What is the difference between fury and anger. Fear. Let’s learn from our Spirits about the Fury Spirit and the Anger Spirit. Are they useful? Following the Siberian Shamanic tradition- can we control them? The Fear Spirit. Let’s learn how to get rid of the Fear Spirit or to reduce its intensity. Our Spirits will give us our personal Ceremony for this.

Week 3: Attachments. Healing our personal attachments. Negative emotions. Our personal attachments are another powerful Helping Spirits of Erlic. During this lesson our compassionate Spirits will teach us how to free ourselves from our attachments. Negative emotions – should we suppress them? Let’s learn how to work with them, in order to let our blockages go and to make space for the new to come.

Week 4: Soul retrieval. Two lakes ceremony for healing ourselves and others.  Together with our compassionate and protective Spirits we shall go to the Erlic’s Underworld. Our Guides will lead us to two lakes – the lake of tears and the lake of blood. Our Spirits will teach us how to retrieve the lost souls’ pieces and we shall get our personal ceremony how to use two lakes for healing.
