IS IT RIGHT FOR ME?
Please note that attending the session on Malas is a prerequisite for this course, as mantras are integral to the practices.
This course is for anyone willing to experience and learn first hand the ways of a traditional shamanic
path and then to adapt those methods to their own circumstances, culture and environment.

You will learn about Sansari Mai the Universal Mother, and learn how to work with Bhumi Devi the Earth Mother, Jala Devi, Agni Devi, Vayu Deo and Dhumiwati. Each of the Elements has a corresponding Spirit you will encounter, and you will also be introduced to other relevant spirits such as Ganyap and Mastoo.

What they said about us
When you work with Bhola, you can't live a superficial instant at all; if you have the ability to tune in to him, live and experience what he feels, in that moment, in his interior. This is his great ability, that of giving you that part of you that you miss and that truly leads you to find in yourself your rewards which are peace, serenity, love of others, self-respect and sacred character of your life.
We feel privileged: we have Mimì and Bhola, she from Mantua and he from Kathmandu, to lead us in a rapid immersion and assimilation of the salient aspects of this culture so rich in history, spirituality and openness to sharing. Thanks to them, our steps have gained security and our looks that attention necessary to make us give up stereotypes and preconceptions.
What a great chance to be part of it! Thanks precious Bhola! And thanks to the ancestors and all the great people we met!
His teachings are profound, clear, practical. The shamans we met were fantastic and Bhola is ... how to say ... a GREAT man, he gives everything he can, he knows a lot and his heart and mind are wide open.
A delight!!! And Nepal is a fantastic country. Come and join, you won't regret it ...
It was a wonderful and very strong journey.
Thanks to Bhola for your generosity, for sharing and for meeting all these wonderful people ...
This journey will remain strong in my heart for a long time.
Thanks to Bhola for this wonderful experience ...
Bhola is the biggest incentive I have encountered to lead a shamanic lifestyle. It has left us with a stimulating but visceral and tangible sense of how to foment peace and harmony in our life as a way to create spiritual democracy wherever and however we live. Don't miss the chance to try out his many gifts.
Bhola is authentic, skillful, open, wise, respectful and a profound healer. People return to his retreats and for private healing sessions again and again, due to the many gifts they receive from his teachings. We heard from the group participants that during the year they worked with Bhola they went through a salient period of their spiritual journey. We are honored to be able to assist him in giving his gift to the world.
Bhola is a shaman of great power and with a big heart. His teaching style includes age-old Nepalese shamanic practices, mixed with traditional stories, healing rituals and travel. His command of English makes learning with him quite simple. His students and patients feel safe, encouraged and honored. In conclusion, Bhola has a genuine gift for treating people with sincere kindness and respect.
Participants leave his meetings full of wisdom and shamanic rituals that they can easily integrate into their lives. His lessons are so popular that we often have to turn people away!
I think you will find it very pleasant to work with him.
Bhola is an extraordinary shaman who is carrying on a beautiful tradition which was initiated by his grandfather. Bhola is a true example of a shaman who can walk in a room and radiate everyone present with his presence of light and love. His teaching style is full of love, clarity, truth, wisdom and humor. Everyone I know who studied with Bhola loved his labs. And it is a real gift to receive healing from Bhola. Don't miss the chance to work with Bhola!
