What we're about

Shaman Circle of Virginia Beach Founder and Organizer

The Shaman Circle of Virginia Beach is a community of those interested in, those practicing shamanism as a personal practice and those who are shamanic practitioners. Monthly journey circles will be offered as well as classes, workshops and guest presenters. Individual shamanic training, counseling and healing services are also offered. The Shaman Circle of Virginia Beach has a sister group on Cape Cod, MA which began 5 years ago. You can find this group on Meetup as well as The Shaman Circle of Cape Cod. As our community grows we will establish sweat lodge, pipe ceremony and fire ceremonies. Shamanic circles and community is the heart of shamanism. Come and be a part of it!

As the founder of Shaman Circle of Virginia Beach I welcome you! This is the second Shaman Circle on the East Coast and in the next few months a third will begin in New Bern, North Carolina. My life has included shamanism as a personal practice since I was in my 20s (1988). In my early 50s I was called to walk on the path of the shamanic practitioner. My training includes three frameworks: Core Shamanism with Michael Harner, Siberian Shamanism with Steve Serr, and Peruvian Shamanism with Chris Krohn (Alberto Villoldo teachings). I also worked on my own personal healing for 13 years with Shaman Foster Perry of Golden Hummingbird Medicine. My work encompasses healing sessions in person and via the phone.

Currently I am offering a transformative journey through the Medicine Wheel through the Peruvian Shamanic training that is deeply healing. The journey happens over the course of a year via four weekend retreat experiences. Keep an eye out for meetups around this opportunity!

Please feel free to connect: 508-560-6891 or centerforpersonalevolution@gmail.com

I look forward to our paths crossing!

Where can you find Erika?

GREAT QUESTION! She holds classes in her space in Virginia Beach. She offers healing services in her Virginia Beach space OR in your own home or space. What would "another space"' be to receive classes or healing sessions? Outdoors, at a park, on the beach, in a field, at a wedding, at a Baby Shower or Bridal Shower, during a party or cookout- The possibilities are endless!

Rewriting Your Story: Defining Your Legacy

Needs a location

From the time we are born, we all have a finite time on this earth. Yet in our society, many of us are not prepared for the inevitable. If something were to happen: - Do you have a plan in place for your final arrangements? - Does your family know your plans? Are they in writing? - Do you have a plan in place for your children? For your animals? These are all very important questions but the thing most of us overlook is: - Do you know what your legacy will be? During this two hour group, we will take a look at the story of our lives, determine what we would want the story to look like if it ended tomorrow and begin to shape our stories going forward. $25 Limited space available, prepay to reserve your spot today! https://www.healingtreecenter.org/store
