Core Shamanism Journey Circle - Online

Online event

No experience needed for our Shamanic Journey Circles.

Steeped in the rich beauty of the natural world, shamanic journeying heartens the soul, while weaving loving relationships with all beings in our world. This Circle is focused on the precept that all beings of nature are sentient, and relationship with these beings is the cornerstone of the practices within our Circle. Come join us in this sweet exploration of the beauty that is available to us in all the worlds.

This weekly Circle has been meeting under the loving guidance of Gail Gulick in the Asheville area since 2006. Gail's official training includes authorization by Sandra Ingerman as a teacher of Soul Retrieval and other shamanic healing techniques, training with Tom Cowan in the Celtic shamanic ways, as well as numerous other training experiences. Gail has been a shamanic mask-maker since 1989, and a life-long explorer of esoteric healing and consciousness-raising techniques.

No journeying experience required.

Suggested Donation: $10$ - $25

Self-Care and Community of Practice Led by Black Facilitators, for the Black Community.

About this Event
"Caring for myself is not self - indulgence; it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare." Audre Lorde

This is an invitation specifically for persons who identify as Black or African American and are overwhelmed with the injustice of the world and are ready to create space in their lives for self-care as we fight for justice for all! (We offer a parallel session for Allies to connect, learn and find support in their work to dismantle racism at allies.eventbrite.com)

We believe Black people deserve a space to relax, reassess, and realign ourselves.

We are a collective of Black stress-management & wellness instructors inspired by human values.

We are here to facilitate your journey of trauma-relief and stress-management.

Imagine how much more energy you will have and how much more powerful you will be when you cut your stress levels in half!

And it can be done in just a few minutes using nothing but your own breath...

Over the last 10 years, we've taught over 100,000 people to do just that.
The key is that your breath is directly linked to your emotions.

This 1-Hour Restorative Session Includes:
-Open, safe space for sharing and self-care for Black people
-Facilitated discussion
-Breath work and meditation

Led by Black facilitators, certified in stress and trauma relief.
Unleash the Hidden Healing Power of the Breath
