Today we learned that a teacher / acquaintance of Michael, Galina, a shaman born in Siberia and trained in that incredible tradition, is in town this week. In conversation with her Michael proposed that she offer two workshops at our home this Saturday to teach two different skills that we believe will directly contribute to the quality of our lives.
Workshop 1: How to build relationships with the nature spirits that live on the hills, in the parks, and in the bay near your home.
Saturday 12:45 to 5:00PM, Bernal Hill, San Francisco
300 Precita Ave, sf, ca 94110
Meet at the park corner of Precita and Folsom St. We will walk up the hill together.
Donation: $25 - $45
Galina will take us to Bernal Hill and show us how to locate the power spots where the spirits dwell. From there she will teach us how to make offerings to the spirits in such a way that they recognize your gifts and are inspired to offer gifts in return. She will teach us about the unique benefits having relations with land spirits bring to our lives, how to receive their help and cultivate the relationship over time. What you will learn on Bernal Hill can be used at any land feature near your home.
Workshop 2: How to protect and clean yourself from negative energy before, during and after embarking on Medicinal journeys.
Saturday 7 - 10:30 PM, Our house
Donation: $25 - $45
Virtually every shamanic tradition views the ingestion of medicinal substances as entering into the spirt world, a world of great healing and insight, as well as negative forces. Galina will teach us how to protect ourselves from negative forces, as well as how to make our intention known to our spirit guides so that they can support us on the journey. Finally, we will learn how to do energetic clean up after the trip to be sure we don't bring back any negative energy that could harm us or others. There will be no ingesting of medicine of any kind during this session.
Please feel free to send this invite to anyone who may be interested in shamanic practices as this is such a unique opportunity.
