Intro to Shamanism–Honoring the Summer Solstice

On the longest day of the year (we will celebrate the day after on June 22nd) we will harness the energy of the light and embrace our divine essence and power. Come join us for an outdoor healing circle where we will honor the directions, the elements, ourselves. We will journey to the heart to the beat of the drum, connecting with our spirit guides to find answers how we can spring forward into the vibrant sunshine of the summer. This will be a sacred circle of liberation. We will also learn a guided meditation to center ourselves and bring in even more light and love to our hearts.

Come and honor the solstice, come and honor yourself.

The sun is out dear sisters and brothers. It is time to shine!


The power of prayer is amplified in community; when we perform rituals together, the efficacy of healing is that much more profound. Let us heal together and thus by healing ourselves, we will have more love and light to share with all. Good vibes are contagious!

Please bring a yoga mat, blanket, or towel to lay on, and an open heart. Snacks to share can always be fun too. I will use my culinary skills to make something snazzy, chocolatey, and vegan.

We will meet to the right of the Central Park obelisk, a sacred and highly energetic site originally from ancient Egypt located behind the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Please enter the park by the 79th street entrance and walk past the cute bear statue, head under the tunnel and then immediately to the right. The obelisk is directly on the right hand side. You will find us near the tree next to the obelisk.

Weather permitting.

This is a healing circle open to all, those with or without shamanic experience/knowledge cordially welcome. Community LOVE!

Time: 4-6pm

Where: Central Park obelisk

Energy exchange: $20

Shamanism is one of the oldest spiritual paths known to mankind, a way of life that gifts one easy and applicable tools to apply to modern day wellness. Come and join Sarah Eve as she shares some of the core practices of shamanism, which allow you to access individual healing and ways to empower your daily life.

Shamanic practices globally have certain core characteristics. A shaman is a man or a woman who serves their community as a teacher, counselor, and healer by connecting with spirit guides, ancestors, the elements, to gain wisdom and healing guidance for others. Drums and/or rattles are most often the tools used in guiding the shaman into the meditative state to access this information. This process is what is called the shamanic journey. Other tools used in shamanic ceremonies include stones, crystals, and herbs for cleansing energy.

We will:

•Learn the easy techniques of shamanic drum journeying.
•Connect and meet with one’s personal guides and power animals for healing and accessing information.
•Use movement and meditation to release, heal, and expand.


Sarah Eve Cardell is The Culinary Shaman, making magic in kitchen and healing from the heart. She uses yoga, shamanic, crystal, tarot, and nutrition knowledge for whole-body wellness and healing. With a degree in biopsychology from the University of Michigan with experience in Zen Buddhist meditation, she then completed the yoga teacher training with Sri Dharma Mittra. Additionally she is a certified Usui Reiki Master and a student of the late shaman Ipupiara of the Ure-e-wau-wau Amazonian tribe. The path of healing led her to work closely with the Santo Daime community and with John of God in Brazil; other international trips including Mexico and Central America, Europe, Israel, and Southeast Asia, she encountered sacred spiritual practices in which she shares. Her experience as a vegan chef is another medicinal tool in the healing journey. In workshops and individual healing sessions she uses her array of gifts to facilitate one to connect deeply to one’s heart and true light, shifting illness, removing blocks, finding one’s higher life purpose. She provides a safe space in which you can heal you!
