Ethical Code


Striving towards good ethical practice is at the heart of the work of all therapeutic shamanism practitioners.

To bring good ethical practice into shamanic work was central to the motivation of setting up the Three Ravens College.

Our code of ethics for practitioners is below…



Code of Ethics for Therapeutic Shamanic Practitioners


Guidance

To strive to be guided by our spirit guides, and not our own ego.


Healing

To always seek to heal when appropriate, and never to use shamanism for harm. To treat everything we find with respect and compassion.


Safety

To strive to offer a safe and healing environment for clients.


Core conditions

To strive to show grounding, empathy, congruence, unconditional positive regard and awareness.


Confidentiality

To respect and protect client confidentiality (within legal and ethical limits).


Integrity

To strive to be aware of our personal limitations, skills, experience and appropriateness. To only work within our competence, and to seek supervision and/or refer on when needed.


Honesty

To be honest and truthful in how we present and represent ourselves personally, in public relations and in advertising.


Permission

Never to do shamanic work without the express and explicit permission of our clients, and our spirit guides.


Inclusivity

To strive to be inclusive, and  tolerant and accepting (of race, gender, creed, age, sexuality, disability or any other differences).


Power

To always seek to empower the client whenever and wherever possible. To not abuse our power through manipulation of others, including inappropriate sexual behaviour.


Payment

If charging money for our services, to offer fair and appropriate fees for the work that we do, and be clear about fees and number of sessions.


Words

To strive to be conscious of the power of the words we use. To tell healing stories, and be mindful and careful of the seeds that we sow with our words.


Energy hygiene

To strive to keep our own energy field  and that of our work environment as clean and clear as possible. To be mindful of what we may pick up from clients, and what we may pass on to clients.


Fitness

To know when we are not in a fit and proper state to work, and to take time out when needed. To seek help when we need it for ourselves.


Appropriate detachment

To avoid rescuing, and to try and stay out of the drama (victim-rescuer-persecuter) triangle.

Boundaries

To maintain good and appropriate boundaries with clients.


Reputation

To not act in ways that bring shamanism or therapeutic shamanism into disrepute.


Community

To not use shamanism for personal gain if doing so is to the detriment of others, shamanism and therapeutic shamanism, and/or the community.
