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:

    I enjoyed playing with the child-like energy during this core journey. Approaching with a "beginner's mind", as Gerry suggested, was just the tactic I needed.

    A former member More than you ever wanted to know! I think he's probably symbolic of family dysfunction.

    I forgot to get the name of whomever spoke to me about him after the meeting. Can you identify yourself for me? Thanks!

      I'm a history major, so that one didn't escape me! It's the humor like that in the Simpsons that I do like.

    Just a reminder for tomorrow that I plan to attend. If folks could refrain from wearing synthetic perfume, cologne, and aftershave, I would appreciate it. I am find with essential oils. Thanks so much!
