Core Journey Circle

Journey Circle: Foundations
Gerry Starnes, M.Ed.
Donation: $10 and Thrive Community Card is accepted.

This Journey Circle is for anyone interested in the journey experience. Whether you have attended an introductory session or workshop or not, everyone is welcome to attend.

If you are new to the circle or to the shamanic journey, please do come 15 minutes early for orientation.

In this circle, we focus on the fundamentals and exploration of the shamanic journey experience. Shamanism is a very practical and powerful practice that is relevant to ordinary life experiences and decisions. It is not dependent on any particular organizational structure or belief system.

New to the Circle or the Shamanic Journey?
Please come 10-15 minutes early for a brief introductory discussion. One of our more experienced members will be glad to visit with you.

Watch this video for more about the shamanic journey:
Introduction to the Shamanic Journey
and other videos on the Shamanic Passages YouTube channel:
- The Three Worlds of the Shamanic Journey
- Power Animals
- Working With Power Animals

The Circle meets from 7:30 to 9:00 pm. Feel free to come as early as 7:15. We begin promptly at 7:30 with a short meditation to drumming and end at 9:00.

What to bring with you?
In addition to curiosity and willingness to explore something new, bring a journal or notebook with you to record your journey and insights that you receive. If you have a hand drum, feel free to bring it, but it is not necessary. You might also bring a bandanna or blindfold to cover your eyes.

You will also find these articles to be very useful prior to attending:

    Good question Monica! As I recall the image now it seems that the crows hopped up, wings spread out, from the chest area and into the circle, all of them at the same time.

      That is wonderful news haha as said before I learn from y'alls sharing as I am only sometimes visual in shapes/forms of different colors of light, but I am very sensetory and I felt distict pressure in between my heart chakra and solar plexus, without your sharing I would have not known what to relate the feeling to! Thank you for sharing and remembering much obliged! Happy Trance Dance...Moni

    This was an exciting, productive and pleasing gathering. Thanks to all of you for letting your crow spirits come out to dance in the circle, it was quite a spectacle.

    Monica, I don't journey visually either, nor do I daydream much visually. I day dream and journey through thoughts and conversations.

    Tonight was a strong practice. The circle was tight, and I had an insightful Journey. Blessings to all!
