Medicine Dance
Medicine Dance Facilitated by Jason Traweek (Spirit Lab) and Lauren Tietz (EarthSkyBodyWorks) Doors open ~ 7:45pm Ceremony begins ~ 8:00pm Doors close ~ 8:05pm Medicine Dance provides the opportunity for you to deeply explore intimate connections with both yourself and spirit through movement. Lauren Tietz will provide gentile guidance to bring you into a deeper place of mindfulness and embodiment followed by Jason Traweek's drumming and sounds to guide your experience as you move through your journey. This is open to everyone of all abilities: no prior movement experience is needed. *Note* - this is NOT an ecstatic dance. Rather, this is contemplative dance where the focus is inward. Eye contact, touch and spectation are discouraged in this setting. We are together, but in our own journeys. This event is hosted by the Austin Shamanism Community. You can expect a ceremonial space and offerings, a dimly lit room and time in the circle for settling at the beginning and integration at the end.

What we're about

Shamanic learning is experiential. Only when you have experience do you really have intelligent questions and insights based on a direct encounter with reality. In the West, however, we emphasize talking and explaining first; then maybe have an experience that validates what we decide is real.

This group is about learning and experiencing the powerful potential of shamanic techniques and rituals that can be practiced in everyday life. We encourage you to join us, to experience shamanic practice first-hand, and then to test what you learn in your everyday life. This is the way to incorporate spirit guidance and wisdom.

The group meets several times a month for drum journeys, trance practices, workshops, and retreats. This group does not use or advocate use of psychogenic substances.

The core of this group has been meeting regularly since 2003, but everyone of all experience levels is welcome. As an established group, our circles are supportive, high-energy, and often astounding in content.

We meet weekly for explorations in shamanic journey, healing ritual, TranceDance, and other practices. There is something happening every week! Membership in this group is free. We do ask for a contribution of $10 per person to cover time and space rental for meetings.
