Shamanic Drumming Journey Group
Fri, Jun 2, 2017 at 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Rest in savasana and experience the power of the circle and the rhythm of the drum to connect with helping spirits to release energy blocks, promote healing and gain insight.
Shamanic Journeying can restore balance and bring us into alignment with our true nature through the connection with our internal sources of power and the shamanic practice of "soul retrieval," or reconnection with the parts of ourselves from which we've become detached. In this Journey Group, we invoke the power of the elements to reconnect.
Arrive early to secure your spot! Bring a mat to lie on and make use of our blankets and props. Bring a journal and a pen as well as openness to learning something new about yourself!
If you're new to Shamanic Journeying, come fifteen minutes early to check in with Paul so he can give you a brief introduction to the practice.
Just $10 for this experience!

The Work That Reconnects: Sustenance to face global crisis Power to create sustainable change
Facilitated by Jim Tull and Karina Lutz Our world is in the midst of the most monumental cultural shift humanity has ever experienced. The magnitude of the crisis has caused many of us to shut down, while others burn out trying to make change happen.
The Work That Reconnects is a perspective-changing, life-affirming experiential learning process that will help you confront and move through alienating dread and despair — unleashing the energy that is thwarted when you are paralyzed or dissociated. The energy released will become your passion to effectively face the crisis as you find power in deep connection.
In this workshop you will find yourself moving from your sense of self as your little body to your completely interconnected, and therefore empowered, Ecological Self.
We invite you to connect more deeply with Self, world, and Earth, to confront despair and reclaim the passion for justice and love of Earth and each other, inspiring or rejuvenating our work towards healing the world.
Working in small groups we will reclaim our sense of interconnectedness to each other, to the web life and even to the earth itself, step by step:
Experiencing our gratitude for living in earth
Honoring our pain for the state of the world
Seeing the world anew, as a whole system
Preparing to engage in social change with renewed passion, clarity, and collaborative power
