ASC's Children's Program

Austin Shamanic Center is now offering children the opportunity to embark on a fun, creative, spiritual learning experience. Shamanic, or animistic teachings, yoga, meditation, art, music and games will be interwoven throughout each event. Our goal is for participants to gain practical tools by building connections with the self, others and the natural world while having fun! At this time, sessions are designed for school-aged children and teens. Amanda Nitschke teaches this program.


Exploring Sacred Space

In these 5 classes, participants will learn how to create and explore sacred space by aligning themselves with animal archetypes, the earth and heavens. Shamanic teachings, yoga, meditation, art, music and games will be interwoven throughout as they slither in the skin of Sachamama, prowl like Otorongo (Jaguar), flitter like Siwar Q’enti (Hummingbird) and spread their wings like Apuchin (Condor). In the last class, they will connect with Pachamama (Mother Earth) and Inti (Sun) and receive the Earthkeepers' Rite, one of the Nine Rites gifted to us by the Q’ero Indians of Peru. Attendance in all sessions is recommended, as the classes build upon each other. 

Cost: $150 for all 5 classes. (Sibling discounts available.)

Dates: 5 Sundays: January 28, February 25, March 25, April 22, and May 20, 2018   10 am-12:00 pm


We also look forward to celebrating this new growth with you at our Solstice Despacho event!


Free Children's Despacho Events: 

Together we will create a Despacho, or prayer bundle, in the Q’ero tradition of Peru to bring things into “ayni” or right relationship. Despacho’s will be held from 2:00 pm-4:00 pm on the following dates. 

Blossom-Spring Equinox Event            3/19/17-Sunday

The Sacred Spiral:

Five classes on the Sacred Spiral, journeying through the 4 directions of the medicine Wheel and then into the center, our space of creation.  Create sacred space, explore the five elements, the medicine wheel and how to align with the energies of Nature, all while building a mini-mesa! The classes build upon each other, so participation in all is recommended, but drop ins are welcome. Sibling discounts available.

Cost and Dates: TBA
