lore and knowledge he’s garnered thus far while he's still here!

A look into the way of the Wounded Warrior, or Shaman. Introducing the methods and over all principles of Shamanism. The discussion will lead into an overview of Native Spirituality, with a look into the Medicine path of the Lakota Sioux. This discussion will also try to place the spirituality in context with the Native American experience and complex history and relationship with the United States.
This will be a two part session, with lecture, teachings and some practical materials in the first half. The afternoon will end, if the spirits should bless our intention, with a traditional Chanupa, or Pipe Ceremony in the Lakota manner. Kurt has been following the Native path for nearly three decades, and has been trained as a Firekeeper, Water Pourer, Pipe Carrier and Traditional Singer, in that role he supports a traditional Sun Dance every summer. He is also an accomplished sacred Bard, pursuing interfaith and intercultural sacred drum, song and chant.
This has been a very well received lecture, and may be the last one on this topic for WFT. as he and his family are working on moving from the Tri-state region. This may be your last opportunity. Catch him while you can!
There is never a charge for ceremony. A $25 fee is requested per workshop to pay for room rental and expenses.
A very special two part, two topic day with Kurt Talking Stone. This will be a
two part session, Part one will be Shamanism and Native Spirituality. Followed
by Advanced Sacred Drum and Chant. Sacred Song is a very central aspect of
Shamanism and Native American spirituality, so the two topics are a

Next, continuing material and concepts introduced in the basic Sacred Drum
& Chant class, we will expand on that material with the HeartBeat Drum,
Polyrhythm, Ritual Awareness and a selection of new(?) songs and chants for
ritual and ceremony. This is absolutely Hands and voice on. There will be some
instruments to borrow, but if you have your own noisemakers, by all means bring
