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 April will be revolving around the topic of Air (http://eagletherapies.com/2017/03/31/inspiration-and-air/).
Today we will find the inter-connectedness and inter-relatedness of the element of air, and see how it fits in with the element of earth. Earth helps us cultivate a sense of wellbeing, as well as a sense of place, presence, and grounding. Earth helps us ask the question, "What do I stand for, and why do I stand for it?". As earth helped pave the ground work, now we can step into the realm of air and be able to take on responsibility and power. The element of air helps us connect to vision as well as clarity, clear sight, and truth.

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