Shamanic Journeying through Drumming

  • Nov 27, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is no longer available

**NEW Location**

I'm pleased to announce our first ever Shamanic Journey, led by the amazing Don Rupert!

Many cultures throughout history have discovered the ability to leave their body through the trance state that emerges from repetitive drumming, dancing, chanting, etc. This can produce the typical OBE-state, but more commonly people would go on a Shamanic Journey to gain deep insights and answers in their lives. Many people are able to have a Journey on their first try.

Journeying starts with your Sacred Imagination and the heart beat of a Shamanic drum, then Spirit takes over. Some will see full 3D scenery while others will only hear and sense their experience. Newcomers will wonder if they're only using their imagination, or how to tell the difference. Answers to these questions come with more experience. The recommended approach is to fake it until you make it :)

It is very important to set an intention and create sacred space before you start. Without a focused intention, journeys can be chaotic, or you might find that nothing much happens. At the end of the Journey, you will hear the call-back rhythm of the drum (or rattle). When you hear it, thank those who have come to guide you and begin to shift your awareness back.

Don will be bringing both his drum and rattle and we'll take a vote. Don will introduce us to the topic, then we will spend some time on group intention-setting. We will lock the doors after 7:30PM, as there's no way to enter without disturbing others.

Juice will be out of town, so Tom has graciously offered to host from his house. It's only 10 minutes from the usual place. Seating choices are very limited so please bring your own mats and pillows for the floor, or foldable chairs with head support. We only need one drum, but we might use extras for a grounding exercise. You won't need to bring any headphones - Don will be performing live!


What to bring:

• Bring your own mats and pillows

• Journal and Pen to record your experience

• Crystals you use for AP or protection

• No headphones needed!

*Note this is the day before Thanksgiving, please check your schedule before RSVP'ing. Thank you!

    I got home, opened my IPad and a herd of wild horses appeared on the screen. I counted that as #2. Next day I was telling a friend about it and she smiled saying that she was #3, long story.

    I was creating an altar at Mark's new home, so he can have all his sacred objects together. I found a gift I brought him from Sedona. You guessed it, #4 an image of a horse carved on a rock.

    I got my answer, my power animal is the Horse. "Common Symbolic Meaning of Horses

    Power
    Grace
    Beauty
    Nobility
    Strength
    Freedom
    Thanks all for creating the space to learn and receive answers.

      Thanks, Don! Mark and I were sharing about our experience at every gathering we went to this weekend. You are loved and appreciated.

    Awesome! I can't think of a single thing you could have done, Don,to make it any better. Your talk was great, even as a first timer I felt totally prepared and ready for my first journey and it was incredible! And then you gave us such special gifts on top of everything. Saying thank you just seems so insufficient. But I do thank you!!

    Comfort question. Is your house generally a little on the warm side of the cooler side?

    November 27, 2013

  • Judy ".

    It has been crazy out there today I am running a little behind. Doing my best to be there by 7. but I am definitely coming

    I found a video clip where Robert Bruce asked Kevin Turner if Shamanic Journeying is the same or similar to Astral Projection?
    Paraphrasing: Basically the same but some difference. Most OBE's are what a Shaman would consider Middle World Journeying. Also considered the pleasure/pain dualistic zone. The lower/upper is non-dual. Robert Monroe, for example, started out in the Middle realms and began to move into the transcendent higher dimensions.

    • Tom

      yeah, he goes in and out. He may be inside if it's too cold tonight. I keep the place dusted and vacuumed and have an extremely good HEPA air purifier so it shouldn't be a problem for you.
