Meet other Earth lovin' people. We are gather to practice shamanism, natural spirituality, and bring back our connection with a sacred Earth. This is an open-hearted group of folks who perhaps have heard about shamanism or have been hearing the Earth's spiritual call, or perhaps have had training and seek to gather with others who have been walking this extraordinary path. It is equally for those who come because of a nagging curiosity, as it is for those who are experienced. It is a group with that is going to have various programs, from those providing the absolute beginner with a place to comfortably learn, to those who are extremely advanced with years of work already behind them. This hopes of this group are that it will have activities for all levels and interests. From drum circles to comprehensive healing training, and from donated community healing to insight-oriented shamanic growth groups. There is something that is going to be here for anyone with a love, or even a budding interest in shamanism and Earth-based spirituality.
We are being called back to our sacred Earth; back to our original wholeness. Shamanism's earthy, natural spirituality brings a timely and healing voice to a people who are increasingly yearning to reconnect with the Whole from which we came.
If shamanic training is you interest, educational gatherings will be presented by Dr. Steve Serr, originally trained as a clinical psychologist who fled the un-wellness of psychiatry and hospitals to our universal indigenous wellness with relationship with the Earth. Steve turned back to nature, where he developed a passion for the potential in shamanism, began to research, and later turn to educate and certify shamanic practitioners at http://www.shamanism-101.com .
If Nature-Based Spirituality is what you're seeking, shamanism is far more than mere ritual or healing. It is a spiritual practice, and our growing interest in shamanic studies meets a deep, perhaps even unrecognized widespread need to reconnect with our Earth and with each other. Nature-based and shamanic spirituality refers to ancient and worldwide grounding and orienting practices in which sensitizing, heart opening, focusing and intention-setting efforts lead us back to our original connected and integrated nature, where we are consciously aware of our sacred Earth.
This 'age of separation' that we are currently living in has severely fragmented us from each other, from our planet, and even from ourselves. Much of humanity has become distanced from the Whole of which it was once connected. Both time and change have led to widespread forgetting of our original connection with our full true self, our human community, and the planet upon which we live. We suffer as individuals, as societies, and as a biosphere. Let's connect!
Shamanism remembers our deep interconnection. It brings us home, and seeks to restore our essential, natural, ways of understanding and working with each other and the world. We need accessible gathering places where we can learn to recover our ancient ways and return to our vital, natural wellness.
We look forward to hearing from you. A Sacred Earth: aka The Black Raven is Steve's office space in Felton, California, located at 6245 Highway 9, across from the New Leaf Market. Shamanism 101 is his locally based international training that provides what is probably the most comprehensive and grounded training in core shamanism today.
Join us, come to our gatherings, and become a shamanic 'Earth'lovin' people' ! :)
