Have you had previous shamanic training? The protocols of basic shamanic practices (journeying, sending distant healing, etc.) are reviewed during gatherings.
Would you like to attend shamanic practice circles where the focus is on insight, personal discovery, empowerment and growth? Are there other areas of interest you would like to see addressed?
What else would you like to participate in when at this shamanic and Earth-centered spiritual community, in addition to journeying, prayer, discussion and sharing, sending healing, and other shamanic practices?
All of interest
Are you an accomplished shamanic journey drummer (extremely steady, consistent journey beat with a good drum) who could occasionally drum while members do journeying or other shamanic practices?
Would you like to go on 'shamanic day-trips' where shamanic ritual and practices can be done at various places in nature?
Meet other Earth lovin' people. We gather in circle and community together to practice shamanism, natural spirituality, and reclaim our rightful, indigenous connection with our sacred Earth. This is an open-hearted group that is open to members with all degrees of prior experience, from longstanding to being brand new! Many come who perhaps have heard about shamanism or have been hearing the Earth's spiritual call, as well as those who have had prior training and who seek to gather with others who have been walking this extraordinary path. In other words, it is equally for those who come because of a nagging curiosity as much as it is for those who are experienced. There is something that is going to be here for anyone with a love, or even a budding interest in shamanism and a recognition of our Earth's sacredness.
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 you are serious about learning shamanic practice, you are strongly encouraged to take Dr. Steve Serr's (who initiated this MeetUp group) Level 1 shamanic training course at www.shamanism101.com, which will give you training in the shamanic paradigm and its foundation practices.
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 and invite you to join us, come to our gatherings, and become a shamanic Earth-luvin' people !
