Hi! I am me and focusing on love and connection with the Spirits. I am a certified shamanic practitioner and did my training in Ireland. I am also a depth psychotherapist.

Why are you interested in shamanic wisdoms?

I found the training I did very healing and powerful. I want to find a group of people to do journey and nature work with.

Have you had much experience with shamanic ritual or ceremony?

The training in ireland was 5 weekends plus a full week. I also am part of an earth medicine group here and attend about once every other month.

Do you put your physical , emotional or spiritual wellbeing in other peoples hands or do you take responsibility for yourself?

Well of course I'm going to say that I take responsibility for myself. Who wouldn't say that? I try to always take responsibility and yet I am human. When I am telling myself that I've been wronged or attacked or belittled I struggle with projection and think my feelings are "justified" which is a tricky sibling of "someone else's fault". So it's lifelong work.

What do you think happens when you die?

I believe that we go on in some way. I think about this question a lot. Sometimes I think we just go into the sea of consciousness and are pure energy with no sense of people or places except as energy would experience people or places. Other times I think we maintain our own consciousness but are still part of that one sea. I know we go on though. The body is just the glass our consciousness has been poured into.

    I hope you can make it to one of our upcoming meetings. I think that a shamanistic approach to working with the lake is always appreciated in our group.

    Hello, Kathy, I'm still confused about how messaging works here. Some email, some posting, some messages show up in places with no connection to original contact. . . Anyway, this group sounds interesting, and I look forward to seeing how it comes to life.

    All the best.

    let's stay awake
    and listen to the dark.
    before the birds,
    before they all wake up.
    It's the ending of a day
    and soon begins another.
    hear the leaves
    applaud the wind.
    see the sun come rising
    and white-wings start
    to fly.
    like strings of pearls
    in the fiery sky.
    don't close
    your eyes, don't leave the night now,
    as the leaves applaud
    your stay.
