When I joined the SwanWaters team back in October 2017, I looked into the shamanic meaning of the swan. This is what I wrote about my discoveries in terms of our work at SwanWaters:
“SwanWaters has already tapped into some parts of the power of the swan: beauty, transformation, love, and harmony. These qualities are currently embodied in the organization’s aesthetic, philosophy, and approach. But SwanWaters, like the swan itself, is much more than simply feeling free and light.
We know that healing is often a very painful journey inward. It requires us to face our grief, addictions, fears, excuses, anger, and darkness. In SwanWaters articles, this truth is always acknowledged. And from a shamanic perspective, the swan—while being a symbol of beauty, transformation, love, and harmony—is a symbol of mystery, intuition, and that deepest place of self-knowledge.
This is the swan’s shadow, so to speak.
We want to reflect the commitment required to genuinely do the work of healing.”
Mags and I have had several discussions centered around this topic, and our passion for recognizing the light and dark sides of healing is what ultimately led to our desire to birth The Healing Academy. It’s been a 15-month-long gestation that will culminate in our launch come February. However, you can already sign-up and join us for the first activities (if you opt for The Healing Academy Plus Program).
So to begin your path of healing work, and to extend the depths of your self-knowledge, sign up for The Healing academy now.
