Bat Journey! Honoring Bat at the Campbell Bridge

This season of Bats in Tucson is coming to a close, and on this evening we honor their presence and coming migration south for winter.  These amazing mammals make their summer home in the support structure for the Campbell bridge.  Each evening they fly out at sunset, but soon, they will begin to fly away.  Come join ISA for an evening of Bat wisdom, drum rhythms, and community.

A few facts about Bats:

-Bats are the only mammals capable of true flight. With extremely elongated fingers and a wing membrane stretched between, the bat’s wing anatomically resembles the human hand.

-Almost 1,000 bat species can be found worldwide. In fact, bats make up a quarter of all mammal species on earth!

-Bats are present throughout most of the world, performing vital ecological roles of pollinating flowers and dispersing fruit seeds.

-Twelve species of bat are listed as endangered, and one as threatened.

-The greatest threat to bats is people.  Habitat destruction and fear are a lethal combination for bats.

So, let's honor our very important Bat friends, and be open to their messages for us. Bats can help us learn about listening and internal radar, death/rebirth, ego death and spirit flight. There will be a shamanic journey, and a group rhythm session. Join us!


We will meet at St. Phillip's Plaza, near the river. We will walk down into the river bed, and approximately 100 yards on sandy, uneven ground, to our place to watch and journey.

Please bring a drum or rattle if you have one.

Please bring what you need to be comfortable, including:  water, a blanket/yoga mat or chair (we will be sitting on sand in the river bed), a flashlight and shoes made for walking.  There is walking to and from the location, so please be prepared. Thank you!

Thanks to Alyson Greene for bringing this circle to ISA :)  This is the last Bat Journey circle of this Bat season. Please join us to send them love!

This event is offered by Spirit Guided Donation.  Ask within to know what to offer.  Your donations allow ISA to offer such circles. Thank you for your generosity!

    I've been feeding the bats for the last 10 days since they have arrived early for their migration. Every year in the autumn they drain my hummingbird feeder each night, so I set out 2 every day.
    Bat is the messenger from the underworld. it spends half its life hanging upside down; must be some message there.
    Very much looking forward to this journey, thanks Alyson
