Saturday September 8....
Join us as we move into the last days of summer. The past couple of months have offered 3 eclipse's, these powerful energetic times create portals to transform our lives. Let us move toward the balance point of the fall in a balanced manner. How can we make that happen? By continuing to focus on what we want, not what we do not want in our lives, calling upon the unseen realm for assistance and being in deep gratitude for all we have.
This extended evening of shamanic journeying & ritual gives us time to state our intentions as we move towards autumn. Let us begin an early harvest, celebrating the intense work we've navigated through during the "eclipse season".
Once again we will travel (with live drumming & other sacred instruments) to the Ukhupacha, also known as the lower world. Each person is invited to travel within - to the inner realms & the place of the sub-conscious. A world where things are hidden within the shadow-self and may be brought to light and transformed. Here, we may ask a question, request assistance, be open to a medicine gift or simply ask for guidance from our spirit allies.
An evening of spiritual inquiry, we'll have extended time of shamanic journeywork and of deep exploration both personally & spiritually. As community, we will integrate healing techniques and creative artistic expression to support our transformational work.
To assist this powerful process, we will perform ritual limpias on one another, these limpias cleanse/clear dense energies that may've accumulated in our energy field, thus lightening our load for the journey. In addition - we will incorporate writing/art process to help bypass the ever-busy-mind, bringing us out of the head and into the heart.
No prior experience is necessary for the journey work, writing or art process - just a playful spirit and a willingness to drop the notion of being "right" or "good."
Shamanic work may be extremely powerful and create change in one's life in a short period of time. This dream-like work may provide a key to a gateway that has always existed. Using the powerful container of the Pachakuti Mesa, a shamanically empowered altar.
It is truly soul-nurturing work.
- If you feel stuck, lost, isolated...join us to assist in a shift that may bring you back into wholeness. - If you are a curious seeker, this might be just the prescription you are looking for. - If you want to be with folks that are on a quest for deeper connection to spirit, this is the place.
All levels of participants, those that are new to shamanism and those that have been on a medicine path for years. It is for everyone.
