The process for many of us begins with an undefined hunger to understand ourselves and the world around us. We begin to explore the teachings (Visions) of the "masters" like Buddha, Jesus, or a Shaman. As we apply what we have learned, we begin to have experiences. These experiences add up and begin to change us. Eventually we begin to have our own "Vision". The final step, we become the "Vision". Somehow related to all the "Visions" yet unique. This is the "Truth that we pass on". The most ancient way to define a Shaman is that he/she calls forth the knowledge, wisdom, and power of our ancestors, from the world of the ancestors into the world of the present living. The Shaman is a "medium" to get help from the other world. The purpose of this group is to share our journey with each other and help each other along the way. "The gathering of eagles is good medicine."
