The vision of a Shamanic Circle of Spiritual Seekers came to me in a meditation. It was an answer to an on-going question: how can I be of service to Spirit and to my fellow human beings during my time on Earth?
Although this vision/answer came many months before the novel coronavirus pandemic changed our lives, the uncertainty of our times makes it seem even more apropos. Because things are not the same. Because we humans don’t really like change very much. We have a hard time with it. And it makes us uncomfortable.
This current discomfort, however, goes beyond our outside circumstances and topical news stories. Somehow, it has stirred a place deep inside. Something way down in our core is waking up, longing to stretch, arise and go out to play! It’s your spirit remembering how much it loves to be open, strong and free!!! Shamanism, which is the oldest healing tradition known to mankind, takes you on a journey that leads you ‘back home’ to your entire complete self.
THE Shamanic Circle of Spiritual Seekers
Awakening the Spirit
FALL EQUINOX 2020 — SPRING EQUINOX 2021
The Shamanic Circle of Spiritual Seekers is a spiritual fitness training program. What it requires from you is a good sense of humor and the ability to find fun in the midst of hard work and sincere effort. But it also asks for your serious commitment to the program, to your Circle-mates, and to Spirit.
It’s a wonderful way to meet and spend time with people like yourself who find satisfaction and fulfillment in developing and sharing their gifts. At the same time, you learn powerful timeless ways of strengthening your inner being and connecting to forces of nature and spirit that are waiting and wanting to help you through your life.
