These ceremonies and workshops reflect the Transformational shamanic teachings of Luisa Kolker MA LPCC.
Please note that this is not a generic shamanic drumming circle.
A high level of emotional maturity, personal accountability and commitment to enlarging your spiritual life are essential to participating in our journey circles and ceremonies. In this way, participants may be fully present with his or her process, and have the ability to be empathically and respectfully present with others in the circle.
In these ceremonies and workshops, we use the technique of the shamanic journey to develop a conscious relationship with what I call our "Inner Community," those aspects of ourselves—human and divine—that inform the integrity of our thoughts, actions and words.
Being in conscious, responsible relationship with our inner selves increases our ability to be empathic and relational with other people and the natural world around us. When we are in empathic relationship with all the worlds of Grandmother Earth (Plant, Mineral, Animal, Human & Spiritual), we contribute to the presence of balance and beauty in our lives and in the lives of others.
Even if you are a seasoned shamanic journeyer in another shamanic lineage or tradition, the Intro class is a prerequisite, as it provides journeyers in our group with a common framework for the ceremonial structure that is used in this particular body of teaching. Guidelines for sharing journeys, a common vocabulary of emotional literacy, the alchemy of projection and the development of our energetic infrastructures are among the details we review in the Intro class.
It's not unusual for journeyers in this meetup group to attend numerous Intro classes as the Intro class provides a structure and opportunity to do personal journey work in a ceremonial environment.
*Nonrefundable payment is required to register for all journey circles and Intro workshops. (*Payment is nonrefundable with the exception of a medical emergency, weather emergencies (e.g., if the public schools and government offices shut down) or in the event of Luisa canceling an event due to low-enrollment.)
IMPORTANT: Attending these workshops and journey circles does not constitute the formal training required to become a shamanic practitioner. These gatherings are intended to provide tools for one's own inner development and to create a kindred, compassionate community dedicated to the principles of love and personal integrity.
