Welcome to the Earth Spirit Way Shamanic Journeying Circle,
a circle for shamanic practitioners and those curious about shamanism to honor, explore and practice shamanic journeying, with live drumming.
Are you ready to empower yourself
to live a richer and more meaningful life, to access your OWN answers to questions about your life, and to explore the invisible world in our infinite universe? Then we invite you to discover the Shamanic Journey and engage the quest for deeper, broader vision of who and what you truly are.
Journey to non-ordinary reality to get direct spiritual guidance.
This is a core shamanic skill used for many different purposes such as divining, problem solving, healing and gathering power. By using the beat of the drum, you will move into an altered state of consciousness to gain access to non-ordinary reality allowing you to receive direct spiritual guidance. This is a skill that will empower you on your path of discovery of your own medicine.
Within a supportive shamanic drumming circle, participants will have the opportunity to deepen their relationship to “Spirit” through shamanic journeys.
This is an opportunity to practice and explore skills of basic shamanic journeying and to develop confidence and trust in ones own experience of direct revelation.
If you have never taken a shamanic journeying class, we will provide a brief introduction to journeying.
Shamanic Journeying is a Spiritual Practice. This intimate circle setting will nurture your practice and prepare you to journey on your own with confidence.
Bring an eye covering and blanket if you wish.
What is Shamanism?...
Shamanism is the oldest spiritual practice known to humankind. This ancient and powerful path teaches us that everything in existence is alive and has a spirit. We are part of Nature , not standing outside of it. Through the web of life we are connected to all life on all levels; Spiritually, Biologically, Ecologically and Socially. We can contact and relate to all there is through this web. We know from the archaeological evidence that shamanism has been practiced Worldwide; in parts of Asia, Siberia, Europe, Africa, Australia, Greenland and native North, Central and South America for at least 40,000 years. (Many anthropologists believe that the practice dates back over 100,000 years.) Every culture has their own traditions and ways of contacting, working with the spirits and the spiritual aspects of Nature itself. The cross cultural experiences of this unseen realm are surprisingly similar the world over… And the most amazing thing is that shamanism is still practiced worldwide today. A practice that dates back so far and is still practiced today must be potent.
Shamanism is for skeptics!
It is 100% experiential. You are not asked to believe anything or to take anything on faith. Only your own direct experience will guide you. There is no dogma or need for spiritual middlemen. This is a practical results based Spiritual discipline. Shamanism is not a Religion. It is a personal spiritual practice grounded in direct communication with the divine. This is a path of personal Direct Revelation. There are no intermediaries that stand between the helping spirits and each of us. We all can choose to access the healing, guidance and wisdom of the compassionate helping Spirits.
The word “shaman” comes from the Evenki peoples, a Tungusic tribe in Siberia.
In Shamanic cultures it has evolved to mean “one who sees in the dark” or “one who knows”, reflecting the extraordinary spiritual abilities and talents as an intermediary between their peoples and the Spirit worlds. A shaman is a man or woman who interacts directly with spirits to address the spiritual aspects of illness, perform soul retrievals, divine information, help the spirits of deceased people cross over, and perform a variety of ceremonies for the community. Shamans have taken on many roles in tribal communities acting as healers, doctors, priests, psychotherapists, mystics, dreamers and storytellers.
