Third Gender People, Two Spirits, Blended Androgynous Ones. You are called by the Spirit World to be a bridge between worlds!
Ones called to the Shamanic path are humans who are able to access the worlds. They are called by the Spirit World to be bridges between realities, and balance there to access helpful knowledge for the Tribe.
In the past this has meant that the Shamana her/himself often blended between the worlds of female/male and masculine/feminine in their societal gender roles. For people who are reading this, those gender roles are in the process of blending for everyone, now more than in the past. Still, those who are called to shamanize today (people are still called to be this Spirit Bridge) are often somehow 'in between' the polarities of masculine and feminine energies, whether called "the Third Sex" or "Two Spirit" by different cultures, whether considered "gay" or "bi" or even "straight" by self and/or society (one’s sex, sexuality and gender are not the same), there is a whole complex world of the Blended Spirit that is important for those called by the Spirit World to shamanize and resonate a healing energy for their People.
For this circle...
Remember the first time you:
Experienced being thought of as the other gender?
Wanted to participate in the "other" gender role?
Felt a "calling" regarding your gender?
Come share stories and feelings, experience a shamanic journey for guidance and connection with our spirit guides, and we will make rhythm together to realign our inner pathways of power.
There are many examples of cultural descriptions about their shaman people as 'the third gender'/'two spirit'. There is much consistency, as well as variety, of how this part of one's shamanic calling can manifest itself in a person's life.
This circle is open to anyone who feels they are a person of Blended Gender, and also who feel called to being a Bridge between Worlds. The drumbeats will take each person where they need to go to learn more about their personal relationship with their spirits within. Sharing is available, yet not mandatory. This circle is open to people with all levels of shamanic experience, yet please no 'observers'. All who attend are participants in their own personal experience.
As in all ISA circles, what is said in this circle stays in this circle. If you do not feel that you want to rsvp, you can email me, or just arrive.
Sliding Scale for this circle is $7-$20 depending on income. Thank you!!! Thank you for all donations that support ISA!
