Welcome to the Shamanic Healing Journeys Meetup Group! These ceremonies and workshops reflect the shamanic-psychotherapy teachings of Luisa Kolker MA LPCC (http://www.luisakolker.com).
In our journey circles we cultivate emotional and relational skills as a foundation for our journeys into non-physical dimensions. Building on a foundation of emotional and somatic (e.g., being in your body) presence, and accountability, we develop trusting relationships with our helping spirits and primarily with our own inner selves so that our shamanic experiences are grounded and safe.
No plant medicines are used in these ceremonies. As humans beings we are all biologically and energetically equipped to have direct contact with spiritual dimensions without the assistance or plant medicines or chemicals. The basic shamanic journey technique is a spiritual and energetic modality that allows the brain to entrain to a theta brain wave state through drumming, rattling, movement, and meditation.
Shamanism was a way of life for most of our ancestors dating back to about 45,000 years ago. When we develop our shamanic consciousness in a thorough and intentional way we become able to access healing, wisdom and guidance through various types of shamanic journeying.
All journey circles are conducted in a ceremonial setting, with the respectful invocation of the elements, our ancestors who are dancing in the light, and other guardian spirits.
A desire to grow emotionally, energetically and spiritually are key to participating in these ceremonies and workshops.
