What we’re about
We're meeting each month to drum, rattle, and journey together as a shamanic Circle in Durham, NC. Core shamanic journey experience is not necessary in order to participate in this group. We welcome your enthusiasm and desire to deepen your connection with your Compassionate Helping Spirits and Spirit Teachers, and motivation to connect with other like-minded journeyers on the shamanic path. You'll need to bring a rattle, a drum if you have it, and an eye cover along with you. We'll have a particular topic each month that we'll explore together on our journeys as a Circle. We're so happy to have you join us, but we do ask that all RSVP to Moon at LuminescentOcean@yahoo.com or preferably on the Meetup site. Suggested love offering for Journey Circle is $5+ (50% donated to charity). Please note: we do have non-Meetup Shamanic Journey Circle participants attending this Circle who are not reflected on the Meetup site, so RSVP is needed. Your hosts, Moon and Hawk, are core shamanic practitioners and teachers in Durham, NC, who completed advanced levels of training with the Foundation for Shamanic Services, as well as training with other shamanic elders. They do shamanic healing and divination for clients at Earthsong Shamanic Healing in Durham, NC. Moon is a Usui Reiki Master/Teacher, Angelic Reiki Master Teacher, Medical Intuitive, intuitive spiritual counselor, and Akashic Records Practitioner. Moon and Hawk are trained as Angelic intuitives, readers, healers, and teachers. They are deeply connected to the natural world, which offers a source of Oneness and peace to all of us. Their lives have been positively transformed by the joy of walking the shamanic path together, and they look forward to sharing this beautiful world of healing and growth with you!

- Despacho ~ Come Manifest 2024 and Release 2023!!6644 Cornwallis Rd, Garner, NC$50.00
LIFE CHANGING DESPACHO ~ Release anything in 2023 that needs to GO!
We are hosting a “Despacho" ceremony on January 27th. This ceremony is going to focus on releasing from 2023 anything that didn't serve your highest purpose and bringing in 2024 with a fresh start. This is a beautiful sacred practice used in the shamanic community for many reasons. They are very powerful for bringing in new habits and releasing old ones. The beginning of the year is a perfect time to come together and build a Despacho.
When we work in ceremony such as the ayni despacho, we work at the level of the soul. A despacho is similar to a mandala or sacred creation as it holds symbolic elements and the prayers of the participants. As the shamans add the elements to the despacho, the vibration of the participants and the area raises. The despacho becomes a living prayer that brings energy shifts and healing. In the shamanic tradition, an ayni despacho is done with the intention to bring oneself and one’s community into right relationship with the natural world. It creates a sense of union, harmony and reciprocity with nature.
For the ayni despacho, the shaman begins with a large piece of white paper that will serve as a ‘wrapping’ for all the offerings. All ingredients have significance, and each receives prayer before being placed on the paper. Coca leaves or bay leaves are used to hold prayers. Sugar and various sweets bring sweetness and love to the prayers. Corn and other grains are used to nourish participants and the Pachamama (the Earth). All ingredients will be provided for you. Once all ingredients have been added, the shaman carefully folds the bundle into the shape of a square ‘gift’ and ties it. After a despacho is prepared, the shaman uses it to cleanse the energy body of each participant.
A practicing Shaman will walk you thru putting together this sacred work. This Despacho will help you set in place your intentions for your life. Using goals and resolutions you will be able to place them in the despacho so they can come to fruition. The despacho takes the form of a very beautiful offering bundle. A sequence of items is placed on a flat surface, each representing the dedication of some aspect of life, helping to bring back wholeness. The process itself is an opportunity to reflect for all who participate. As the ceremony progresses, all involved form “k’intus”, little groups of three leaves, and, with their own breath, place their prayers and offerings into these. They are then added to the ceremonial bundle. We will have everything you will need to create a group despacho. You can bring a note to the universe to add or anything burnable that you want to add to the despacho.
