Journey Circle: Foundations
with Gerry Starnes, Organizer
Community Website: www.ShamanicCommunityAustin.com
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.

Do I need to journey or even know how to?
No. Not at all. If you want to learn the journey process, we are glad to assist you, and there are many good videos and other resources for you. However, we find that simply being present in the circle, with the rhythm and sound is very relaxing, rejuvenating, and healing.
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.
