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.

Where there is light, there is always the shadow that is cast. The shadow is not a bad thing, it is the unspoken aspects of ourselves and of larger archetypes. The earth itself has a shadow, and it is the earthquake. The earthquake is what happens when we hold onto our beliefs too tight, our foundation becomes rigid, and things have become so stagnant that the only choice left is to shake things up. What happens when our world seemingly "falls apart", and what wisdom can come of it?

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/)

6:30 – 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.
