FOUNDATIONS OF SHAMANISM - Shamanic Cosmos, Shamanic Journeying, and working with Spirit Guides Welcome to the One Spirit Shamanic Circle!
Whether you are a frequent attendee from previous circles, or are considering joining us for the first time at our opening Circle on September 11 (7pm-9pm), we promise a rich, enlivening, and rewarding dive into the world of the Shaman - a world closer to you that you may think.
We are moving through a tumultuous time on our planet; a time prophesied by innumerable indigenous cultures as a period of a tremendous shift and change. And, we are all looking for simple and practical ways to heal ourselves, dream new dreams, live in fresh ways, and shapeshift (the ability to change form) our realities to new paradigms of success, wholeness, abundance and joy. Shamanism and a return to Earth-wisdom can help provide a gateway into these new possibilities.
At our circle on September 11th, we will explore many of the basic tenets of Shamanism. We will begin to see how to use Nature a a template for nature of our own belongingness in the world. We will merge with the elements (fire, water, air and earth) to heal and empower. Journeying to inner worlds of mystery and delight, we will invoke spirit guides, navigate expanded realities, and learn to harness the power of the earth and spirit to dream new realities into being.
Some of the material presented on this evening may be slightly familiar to some of the participants who have been with us before, but this work never ceases to be vital, vibrant, and relevant. And remember that the circle itself is a powerful entity that needs the heart and spirit of whoever attends. So please join us!
If you are new to Shamanism this is a perfect evening to learn new skills, open yourself to these ancient ways, and meet new friends. All our welcome!
*Please feel free to bring a yoga mat and small pillow if you would like to journey lying on the floor. We also encourage you to bring any sacred items, crystals or talismans that you can leave on the altar to ‘charge’ with the energy of the evening.
