North Austin Journey Circle
Facilitator: Gerry Starnes, M.Ed.
This location is a private residence located in Cedar Park. You will receive an address at least two days prior to the event. In the meantime, below is a link to give you a general idea of the area.
This Journey Circle is for anyone interested in the journey experience. Whether you have attended an introductory session or workshop or not, everyone is welcome to attend.
In Journey Circles, we learn to use the Shamanic Journey in very practical ways, approaching this contemporary shamanic practice in a structured and organized way, so as to better incorporate them into everyday experience. Journeys may be about certain topics or healings, or may be intended to find new places in the spiritual realm – mapping out the spiritual landscape.

The Circle meets from 7:00 to 8:30 pm. We begin promptly at 7:00 with a short meditation to drumming and end at 8:30.
What to bring with you?
In addition to curiosity and willingness to explore something new, bring a pillow to sit on, and a journal or notebook to record your journey and insights that you receive. If you have a hand drum, feel free to bring it, but it is not necessary. You might also bring a bandanna or blindfold to cover your eyes.
