This meetup will be part four of a four part series and will focus on the element of water. The four elements (earth, air, fire, and water) are a central concept in shamanism. Associations with these elements have also become a common part of our everyday culture, such as when you think of a person who is stable, reliable, and practical as "down to earth" or "grounded"; or a person who is the opposite, uncertain, unrealistic as "spacey" or an "airhead"; etc. In shamanism, we work with these elements even more deeply by reflecting on the energy of each element and the lessons it may have to teach us, and by considering how we express (or want to express) the characteristics of each element in our own lives/personalities, etc.
As part of our personal mission to become more closely aligned with the divine spirit within us, we will participate in a shamanic journey during each circle. In this way, we can practice conscious communication with our Spirit guides in order to heal ourselves and become more able to fulfill our life's purpose of service to others.
Please dress comfortably. Chairs are available, but you may want to bring a pillow, blanket, and/or backjack if you wish to sit/lie on the floor. Also feel free to bring drums or rattles, and a journal for recording insights gathered during your journey.
We will be meeting at the Comfort Suites Inn in Pflugerville. From I-35, exit 1825 and stay on the north bound access road. It is located behind Cheddar's. From 1825, turn West (towards I-35) between A1 Credit Union and Blockbuster. Then, drive around to park in front of the building. We will be in the conference room located down the hallway and to the left of the main desk. Our room is just after the elevators.
