This Circle is for anyone interested in shamanic practice. Shamanism is not a religion or a dogma. It is not dependent on any particular organizational structure or belief system, but is a practical world view based on ancient understanding of the relationships between humans and nature or Spirit. The shamanic perspective on life and living is extremely relevant to the challenges and concerns of our modern world and ordinary life experiences, and is compatible with all religious and spiritual beliefs.
If you are placed on the waitlist: If someone does change their RSVP, the Meetup system will add you in the order in which you joined the event. You will get an email about that. PLEASE monitor your email, especially that afternoon, as that is when many people find that they cannot attend after all. Be sure to check your spam filter, too!
Please note that parking is limited and available only on the grounds, not in the streets. Overflow parking is available on Gibson. Carpool when you can!
New to the Circle or the Shamanic Journey?
One of our more experienced members will be glad to visit with you. Another great resource is the $2.99 Kindle book, The Shamanic Journey: A Beginner’s Guide to Journeying (http://www.theaustinalchemist.com/book-the-shamanic-journey-a-beginners-guide-to-journeying-by-gerry-starnes-m-ed/).
What to bring with you?
In addition to curiosity and willingness to explore something new, bring a journal or notebook with you 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.
If you are new to the group or new to the shamanic journey, you will find these articles in the Meetup Message Board to be very useful prior to attending:
