Details

The Shamanic Journey Group now works in partnership with Sticks and Stones (http://sticksandstonescircle.com/events). Feel free to look up their meetups to see the events they have going on!

The journey groups have a suggested "Journey Topic" that we discuss before journeying. The group itself is a-la-carte and no previous experience is needed. It is definitely helpful to have read some information about journeying (http://sticksandstonescircle.com/events) so you can come prepared. It is not necessary to come to all of the groups in order to understand the concepts we talk about, all of these individual groupings can be done as stand alone topics.

The generalized topic for the next few months are the elements. (http://eagletherapies.com/2017/02/03/purity-and-the-elements-2017/) The month of February and March will be revolving around the topics of Earth.

What is the earth element? How does it correspond metaphorically and apply in our lives? Here is where we look at our groundedness, our ability to stay in the present moment, and explore some metaphors surrounding our boundaries. What beliefs do we hold very concretely that are the foundations of what we stand on?

Outline of February and March (http://eagletherapies.com/2017/02/03/earthoutline/)

Basic structure of journey group: (https://eagletherapies.com/2015/10/14/structure-for-journey-group-in-fairfax/)

6:00 – Arrival and settling in. It’s good practice to “fully arrive” and make sure you’re in your body and here for the experience

6:15 – Suggested journey topic and Discussion

6:30 – Heart centered sound circle

6:45 – Journey (I will be drumming live, so no recordings)

6:55 – Writing/recording our experiences of journey

7:00 – Discussion of our journey and what it meant to us

Shamanic Journeying - What is it? (https://eagletherapies.com/healing/shamanic-journeying/)

Helpful things to bring:

-Journal/writing implement

-(optional) drum or rattle to sing/dance with

-an item for the community altar (generally something that is important to you. They could represent a power animal or an ancestor)

-a blanket to either lay or sit on

This is a space to learn about journeying and how to connect with yourself and your own spiritual guidance. We also welcome more experienced journeyers that wish to deepen their practice and find a small community to connect with.
