Shamanic Journey Workshops

Experience the art of shamanic journey in a potent small group setting. We share our collective wisdom in these circles as shamanic work is for the benefit of the community.You'll learn about shamanism, take your own shamanic journey, and uncover ways to interpret the information you receive. Each workshop is based on a theme of awakening and growing.

Shamanism, the most ancient spiritual system known to humankind, is an earth-based spirituality that centers on all things being connected and having their own spirit and energy.  A shamanic journey is a central feature of Shamanism where through ritual and drumming, one travels into an altered reality or the "spirit-world" for the purpose of gaining information, wisdom, and healing. In this modern age we can be our own shamans as we meet spirit guides in a safe, conscious, and inspiring journey. It is a wonderfully imaginative way to come into connection with your own deep knowledge.

 

Blessingways

A Blessingway is a ritual that marks a rite of passage. We gather together to witness and and support crossing through of portal into a new state of being. This is a transformational path where the group honors the courage and strength it takes to move yourself from one stage to the next. While the community shows up as a supportive weaving of support, each person must walk through their own gateway alone in their own wholeness. I create customized Blessingways for life events such as having a child, getting married, changing careers, graduating from school or a course, entering adulthood, coming of age, leaving home, and any other initiation.

New Moon Circle

Throughout time, women have gathered to support, heal, and lift each other up through life's challenges. All women are invited to join my ongoing New Moon Circle held monthly in the new moon week at Rare Bird Makers' Studio in Oakland, CA. Some women come each month and others drop in when they can. We gather on the new moon because it is a rich time to plant seeds, listen to our wise inner selves, and set intentions. Each month has a new theme and the gathering includes writing, sharing, guided visualization or shamanic journey, and an art project that correlates with our practice.

Seasonal Holy Day Workshops

The Winter Solstice, Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice, and Autumn Equinox are powerful gateway days in our year. Each season ushers in a new cycle and we learn from Mother Nature what is called forth from us as the wheel spins. We learn from these timeless ongoing cycles of life that life continues, changes form, and the light always returns.
