JANUARY SHAMAN CIRCLE: MEETING THE SPIRIT OF 2020 & BLESSING A NEW DECADE
This is our most popular circle every year...and we get to welcome both a beautiful 2020 AND a whole new decade here planetside! Wowza! This is a potent way to plant seeds of ease, power, joy, prosperity, health, and fulfillment for our upcoming cycle, and we’ve rented the beautiful Chapel at Fort Mason just for this special occasion.
Together, we’ll journey to the living spirit of 2020, to learn what gifts and challenges await us, how we can navigate skillfully, and what blessings are bestowed. We’ll then hold a special ceremony to anchor the blessings of peace for our planet and all of her children. NOTE: When I invite us to ‘pray peace’ I don’t mean we ‘pray for peace.’ I mean that we ARE peace, and feel peace, and vibrate peace out into the soup of creation – we become a living prayer together. Loved ones, let’s come together and ignite the sweet medicines of joy, love, kindness, creativity, generosity, vulnerability, and peace…AHO!
THINGS TO BRING:
- fresh flowers for the living flower altar we create together
- something to sit on and be comfy (blanket, yoga met, etc)
- something to cover your eyes (eye mask, bandanna, etc)
- journal and pen
- water bottle
- drum if you have one (we’ll have rattles for folks, too)
A NOTE ABOUT WELLNESS:
Folks may be in the middle of intense physical healing journeys, and it's really important that we honor each other and our community by staying home when ill. THANK YOU FOR STAYING HOME IF YOU'RE SICK, getting sick, getting over being sick, or live with someone who is ill...the sniffles or a lingering cough for you can be devastating for someone else in circle. Thanks for your kind integrity!
SOME BACKGROUND ON SHAMANISM:
Shamanism is one of the oldest traditions in our human heritage - we two leggeds have had some form of shamanic practice in each of our ancestral cultures on planet earth since time began. In early times, when our ancestors were unsure of what medicine plants to use, where to hunt for game, how to help a sick or injured clanmate heal, or how to work in harmony with the life-giving spirits of nature, a shaman would enter an altered state of consciousness, and journey in non-ordinary reality for information, and healing.
Based in core shamanism, the Shaman Circle offers a safe, joyful space to explore shamanic journeying and practice. Through listening to shamanic drumming and rattling, we'll enter non-ordinary reality and explore different shamanic worlds. Everyone can learn to journey, and work with compassionate beings to gain information about our life paths, insight into our struggles, help solve problems, and offer healing for all of creation.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT CIRCLE:
At each monthly event, we'll meet for three hours. We'll introduce ourselves, call in the directions together, and cover a 10-15 minute description of how to journey for beginners. We'll have time for two journeys with live drumming, and sharing around them for those who want to. We'll close with checking in, honoring and releasing the directions, and blessings.
We'll meet 15 minutes before the event begins, and lock the doors promptly at the beginning of the event with no exceptions. The nature of the work we do requires a sacred vessel, and we're diligent about closing the space to create it - thanks for your understanding. Please arrive early, allowing ample time to find the space and park. Thanks for attending to that, friends.
Shamanic practice is a profoundly wonderful experience - we have access to helping spirits who love us without condition. Welcome!
