Come celebrate, reflect and "renew " at this wonderful time of year by the fire in the Sound Lodge. Booking required, cost £15
24th, 10-4pm – "The Eagle meets the Condor" Introduction to Shamanism, The Sound Lodge, Hexham
Unbelievably another year has passed since our first workshop together. Gwen and I are following our hearts and guidance and are committed to co-creating further opportunities for people to experience and learn to work in sacred ways. It is a real privilege for me to help facilitate Gwen share her extensive knowledge and our mutual gifts with the community at the Sound Lodge. It feels like the right time to "Remember and reconnect with the energy of the Old Ways" like we did when WaNaNeeChe Sioux/Ojibwa Teacher first held sacred Sweat Lodges here on the site of the Sound Lodge.
According to Shaman and Teacher Sandra Ingerman we need to start "going deeper" into regular spiritual practice, and as such it feels important to offer this day as another opportunity to connect in Nature and "go deeper," at whatever level you are at.
"Diving deeper is more of a kinaesthetic feeling where you feel all the insights you have read and heard are sinking deep into your cells so you are living the work instead of thinking of how to do your practices. It is an organic process that cannot be explained. You need to work through some of the projections you are placing onto others, work through issues around forgiveness, learn to love yourself and nurture yourself and use your words, thoughts, and daydreams as blessings instead of as curses. You need to stop blaming others for what is not working in your life and in the world and do your practices daily." Sandra Ingerman
The aim of our "Eagle meets the Condor" event is to learn to work and/or deepen your practice in sacred ways on many levels using Native American (Eagle) and Peruvian (Condor) traditions, and has been inspired through many years of learning and practice. We aim to ignite a spark to honour Earth, Water, Air and Fire and, as Don Americo suggests, "polish our windows of perception" in Life so that as we work, the ripples and blessings we create span across the web of life.
"I would just like to say thank you SO much for this introduction, it helped me se which way I need to go on my path and also reconnected me to the web of light, as I've been lost for quite some time. We both got a lot of healing from it and slept like logs that night"! (says a happy participant from last year!)
Our day is planned for around the time of the Spring Equinox on March 24th 10-4pm, cost £65. Please email me if you are interested. Cost £65
