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 the 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 journeying, healing ritual, music and movement, 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.

An Important Note About Teacher Plants and Other Substances
As expressed above, this group does not advocate the use of psychogenic substances in any of our events. The reason for this is that the journey work we do is inherently trance-inducing and may be harmful to the person under the influence of such substances. In addition, such use generally is disruptive to the energy of the circle, as well as distracting to other participants.

Therefore, if someone attends any event under the influence of mind-altering drugs or other substances, they will be asked to leave. Repeated violations may result in the person being banned from the group.

[ONLINE] The Medicine Wheel Shamanic Journey

Online event

The Medicine Wheel Shamanic Journey Facilitated by John Burgess The Shamanic Community of Austin council has come to the conclusion that we cannot continue to offer in-person shamanic journey experiences due to the coronavirus outbreak. We are working to provide some online support and teaching experiences, instead. Topic: [Online] The Medicine Wheel Shamanic Journey Time: March 30,[masked]:00 PM Central Time Join Zoom Meeting https://zoom.us/j/283909081?pwd=SEFUU3RFc3J1L0dZTnh0N0dwQUtrZz09 Meeting ID:[masked] Password: 1111 While attendance for this event is free, please consider contributing to help us to keep making payments for our Zero Gravity studio rent, that would be most appreciated. http://bit.ly/sca_contribution Sacred Circles have been present and played a vital and dynamic role in the energetic and spiritual life of indigenous cultures for tens of thousands of years. From the great stone circle of Stonehenge, to the oldest Medicine Wheel in America, the ancients have used the sacred circle to not only record man's relationship with the outer Universe, but also as a guide to deeper inner explorations within consciousness. Tonight we will explore some of the core elements expressed within Medicine Wheels as a technique for understanding our deeper connection with the Universe, and suggest guidelines of how to use a Medicine wheel as a tool for meditation and shamanic journeying. For this evenings event, I would like to invite you to bring a piece of paper, maybe even a larger piece from a sketch pad, a pencil and between 4-6 small stones or crystals of your choice. Additional instructions will be given on Monday during the event. John Burgess has been both a student of and a practitioner of indigenous ceremonies for over 30 years.
