Journey Circle: Foundations
Gerry Starnes, M.Ed.
Donation: $10 and Thrive Community Card (http://www.thrivefitnessstudio.com/rates.htm) is accepted.
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.
If you are new to the circle or to the shamanic journey, please do come 15 minutes early for orientation.
In this circle, we focus on the fundamentals and exploration of the shamanic journey experience. Shamanism is a very practical and powerful practice that is relevant to ordinary life experiences and decisions. It is not dependent on any particular organizational structure or belief system.
New to the Circle or the Shamanic Journey?
Please come 10-15 minutes early for a brief introductory discussion. One of our more experienced members will be glad to visit with you.

The Circle meets from 7:30 to 9:00 pm. Feel free to come as early as 7:15. We begin promptly at 7:30 with a short meditation to drumming and end at 9:00.
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. You might also bring a bandanna or blindfold to cover your eyes.
You will also find these articles to be very useful prior to attending:
