Edmonton, Alberta
Drumming Circle

Edmonton, Alberta Drumming Circle The Drumming Circle is still going strong led by Erin and Patti. They hold them on the first and third Fridays of the month at the Unitarian Church located at 10804 – 119 street in Edmonton. The circle starts at 7 and is generally over by 9.
The cost is still a bank breaking $5.
You need to bring with you a blanket to lay on, a cover for your eyes and a journal to record your experiences and thoughts in. I would bring slippers because it is a cement floor under that carpet and by golly my toes got cold.
You can find the page under Shaman’s Journey Drumming Circle on Facebook. Each circle has a different theme and is always well put together.

ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM

Bath, England
Bath Shamanic Journeying Circle

Our circle has been meeting since March 2009; we meet on the first Sunday of the month at 7pm, within the city centre of Bath. Our circle was originally set up to offer a safe sacred space to build a community of people interested in shamanism to meet and gain support and knowledge with and from each other.

Our work together is experiential and spirit given, so before we meet a journey is undertaken to ask to be shown the work we are to carry out for the forthcoming circle. We are a small friendly committed group and we welcome new people to the circle, because of the nature of the work we are shown there needs to be a confident level of experience of being able to journey. This would include being able to undertake an upper and lower world journey and to be able to journey for someone else. If you are seeking a way to learn to journey, or to improve your confidence in the practice, you are more than welcome to contact us and we can discuss this and point you in the right direction to take your next steps; a few of us are trained to teach journeying:

Please bring drum, rattle (if you have one) and something to cover your eyes when journeying, also anything you would like to add to the alter. The cost of the evening is shared equally between the numbers of people that attend; we look forward to meeting and working with you.

For more information please

Each meeting is themed and shamanic journeying, song, dance, art and craft have been some of the forms the group have used to explore creativity, healing and personal development. The group has also worked with ceremony and ritual for both personal and community healing. Whatever form the work takes we are always looking to deepen our relationships with our spirit helpers and teachers and to bring the power and wisdom available in the spirit world to this reality.

The circle is open to visitors and new members who have completed an introductory workshop in core shamanism, or have done ongoing shamanic counselling. As a minimum attendees must have journeyed to the Upper World, the Lower World and done a journey for another person. You need to bring a rattle, notebook and pen, your lunch and something to sit/lie on. For more information please email one of the contact people below. Please include when, where and with whom you did your introductory course or shamanic counseling.

We are an increasing in numbers group of individuals who do shamanic healing. We cover a large geographical region of northeastern Finland.

our Spirit Helpers, healing for others and Nature. We gather at least once per month for several hours; plan long day meetings and adventures; and plan to be outside more than inside whenever possible; work with Drum; work with sending healing and power; work with supporting one another on this path of Life.

Requirements to join our group: If you haven't been to a "basic workshop", you must be able to journey in a disciplined manner, know at least one spirit helper, know how to work with a partner. We have decided that we don't want to teach people how to journey when we meet.

Earth Blessings to You All!

I remember a world where the crash of ocean
waves carries the voice of our Mother,
the soft light of the moon is Her gift to us,
and every living being is my relative.
I remember a world in which the call of an
owl, the flight of a heron, and the sound of
the wind through the trees have meanings too
deep to tell.
I remember a world where dreams run deep,
life runs slow, and eternity
unfurls itself on a spiral.
I remember...

SPAIN
TARRAGONA, CATALUÑA
Shaman Group Therapy: Energetic Alignment
Energetic alignment is a therapy that takes its origin from the shaman tribes in Amazonia and that adapted its cure technique to the western world, getting rid of a few of traditional rituals such as absorbing plants for example. We all vibrate to a determined sequence of which the Universe is responding by pairing us off with people or situation which frequency is similar to ours. Doubts, fears and contradictory objectives take away from our experience field what we really wish, what is really good for ourselves. The shaman channels and incorporates in his energetic camp those low frequency vibrations, and with the help of the spiritual dimension, send it back to us enlightened and cured, helping us to harmonize our own life.

2 Brazilian shamans, Carlos Henrique Alves and Leticia Tui come to Spain every 2 or 4 months to help people bring harmony to their life. They organize what is called in Spanish: "rueda de cura" best translated as "wheel of Cure" which gathers a group of people who gets treated and actively participate to the shaman treatment. The group therapy is opened to anyone. For more information please

SWEDEN
Malmoe/Lund
Hi,
We are a little group in the south part of Sweden, i. e. Skane, and we have been working together for about two years. We try to mix together core shamanism with our native knowledge of herbal and spirit work. We don't do workshops, because we're still learning ourselves. The group meets on unregular basis but always on every third month. We work a lot in the deep forests of our country but also in municipal areas depending of the occasion and type of work. The group is open to guests or newcomers but you should have a basic understanding of shamanism.
Welcome to join the group!

Girdwood, Alaska 99587
ph: (907) 229.4216

Our school provides the best instruction, training, and life experience available in Alaska for those who enjoy Wilderness Adventure / Ecological Stewardship Projects / & Documentary Production. We accomplish this by blending indigenous wisdom such as Shamanism with the merging fields of video • computer • & telecommunications technology.

This Mystery School is open to all. We especially welcome those who share a respect for all living creatures and are interested in living sustainably and symbiotically with nature and people. Our vision is seeing people doing the work they love and sharing the highlights with our local and global community.

The Alaska Wilderness School mission is bringing people and nature together. Wilderness Adventure / Ecological Stewardship / & Documentary Production are the primary ways that we experience this. Survival / Holistic Living / & Sustainable Development are three major objectives. Our long-term goal is Higher Education & Deep Ecology for Economic Prosperity.

"In a healthy society, economy always follows ecology, and education precedes them both." -Ken Carey, VISION

There are no requirements for membership though there are several different levels of particiapation. Some are free, others require a small fee to offset costs. Everyone is encouraged to review the following three ancient forms of wisdom for humanity that are the basis for the Alaska Wilderness School and all that we do. These include: The Golden Rule / The Four Agreements (Toltec People) / and the Hawaiian Principles which may be found on our website: AlaskaWildSchool.com. These are simple guidelines for freedom, getting along well with others, and developing direct, personal experience and connection between Spirit / Self / & Nature.

The Alaska Wilderness School is dedicated to sustainable development of education & ecology for a prosperous economy. The administration and operation of this school are based upon the best indigenous wisdom and modern technology available. Learning, experiencing, and sharing the way of the Shaman are integral to nearly every aspect of the what we do. Our goals include providing the instruction, hands-on training and resources necessary for people to do the work they love while earning a decent living, particularly in ways that are beneficial to people, animals, plants, trees, and ecosystems large and small.

Costa Mesa, CA
Practicing the Shamanic Journey 2
Meets the first Tuesday of the month from 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. Come early in order to start at 7:00. Doors will be open at 6:30.

Many of us have learned the invaluable tool of journeying to the Lower, Middle, or Upper Worlds of non-ordinary reality in order to meet our Spirit Helpers. This visionary method is used world-wide to seek answers to problems, to obtain physical, emotional, and spiritual healing, and to restore power, purpose, and well- being into our lives. On our own, however, it can sometimes be challenging to practice shamanic journeying, especially when we wish to do so with others. If you would like to continue using the Michael Harner method of journeying for yourself, and/or others, in a like-minded group setting, please consider joining us on the first Tuesday of the month for this new drumming circle.

In addition to journeying, we'll also be discussing shamanic topics that emerge from the group, or from events happening to, or in our local and larger communities.

Location: Visions and Dreams Bookstore, 2482 Newport Blvd. Costa Mesa, CA.
Cost is $15.00 at the door by cash or check payable to Karen Palmer.
Pre-requisite: Instruction in basic journeying from the FSS staff or from another teacher or friend. Any level of experience is fine. For those who would like to be a part of our circle and don't know how to journey please contact me.
Bring a mat, blanket, or sitting cushion; bandana or eye covering; water; journal and pen; any small sacred object for the altar; drum or rattle if you have one; warm socks; and a sense of adventure.

Living In Beauty
For native people of every land, everything and everyone that exists has a purpose. The Hopis believe that each person is given this as a gift at birth by the Creator, and that it is one's mission to bring this gift into being in his or her own lifetime. The Navajo call this walking in beauty -- living in balance with all of creation by remaining true to one's essential Self.

Living In Beauty walks this path as a way of embracing life. For gay men. Small, 4-person groups meet 2 hours each week, exploring inner realms and states of being through dreams, ritual, imaginal states and the shamanic state of entrainment. Soul retrievals, vision seeking and power quests, along with practices of energy medicine, are integral parts of the work. As the experience is both cumulative and progressive, an ongoing commitment to attend is required. For gay men serious about the journey to transforming themselves and our world.
Initial interview is required.

Santa Cruz, CA
Santa Cruz Drumming Circle
We meet once a month, usually the last Wednesday from 6:30-8:30. Our Circle is closed now but we welcome shamanic travelers coming through Santa Cruz. Our only request is that they contact me (Carol) before coming so that we can change our plans if needed......to welcome the pilgrim and the stranger along the shamanic highways. We have been meeting for 9 years and just this last week 'reformed' our Circle for the second time. A core group of us has been steady with this Circle and have been profoundly impressed with how Power builds, Spirits bless, and unexpected healings occur because a strong container has been developed over these years. We have now decided to experiment with different states of trance discover other methods for perforating the membranes of the usual 'husk' surrounding our bodies and see what new ways and visions Spirits will reveal to us. We are excited about this new evolution in our Circle. We used to meet twice a month and discovered that by having a Circle that had met for so many years, with only one meeting a month we could quickly enter shamanic awareness and do what we used to accomplish in two monthly sessions!!

Monroe, CT
Healing Drum Gathering
The Healing Drum Gatherings are a gathering of those who wish to experience the healing energy of the drum, the heartbeat of Mother Earth. The drum has the ability to shift energy in a dramatic way as it is an integral tool for vibrational healing. The beat of the drum travels directly to the inner core and can facilitate the release of negative thoughts and behaviors, find the point of creation of illness or dis-ease, and raise the overall vibration of the entire being.

The intention of this gathering is the creation of a sacred space and loving community of beings of light and spirit to allow for a deep level of healing for all participants and to share our raised collective vibration by offering healing and gratitude to earth and spirit. At the Healing Drum Gatherings we are all teachers and messengers of spirit, so no level of training or ability is required. If you have a drum or rattle, please bring one with you. If you do not, some will be available at the Gathering for use. Wear comfortable clothing and bring a notebook and pen.

Suggested donation of $20. Monthly gatherings. Various locations in CT, frequently Monroe. Please see website for details/schedule. Must RSVP to attend.

WorldWeavers Workshop
Are YOU a WorldWeaver Illuminator? The Next Level.

As many of you saw and experienced in Women Weaving the
Worlds, we learned to chant, dance, and pray our way into a new world
reality through the integration of heart, mind and body. We believe that
the time to create the new paradigm of the universe is NOW.

Join Hawaiian kupuna Aunti Nahi, and Native American elder/teacher Robin Tekwelus Youngblood, as we explore the ancient teachings of indigenous people throughout the world. Special guest teachers will share with us traditions that transcend time and space. Through Shamanic Journey techniques, we will learn that what Quantum Physics is re-discovering has been known by indigenous Medicine People throughout the ages: 'Natural Magic' is the art of seeing in order to believe, so that one may believe in order to see. Together we will begin to Weave the web of Hazhro (harmony) through Sound and Movement, raising the evolutionary vibration of the planet.

In ceremony, you will Discern Your Role in the changes taking place today. Learn to Manifest Your Dreams, and to Co-create In Peace with neighbors, friend, lovers, and co-workers in the Dance of Life. This workshop is a Living Prayer. Only those who are truly interested in becoming WorldWeaver Leaders and Illuminators need apply. Reservations are limited for this three-day workshop in beautiful Haiku, HI, so please apply now.

Michigan City, IN
New Moon Drumming Circle
DRUM CIRCLE SCHEDULE at SAGE SPIRIT TERRA
The Drum Circles at Sage Spirit Terra are Journey Circles for Personal Empowerment. We go deep within to the beat of the drum to seek answers for ourselves. My teachers are from South America; we follow their methods. The Drum represents the womb & combined with the masculine beater stick, we create anew. The original drummers were women from the inception of the drums in 25,000 BCE.

The Women used single headed drums for ceremonies for family. The
single-headed drum is used around the world to achieve altered states of consciousness; to contact our Guides & Helpers in the Universe who are waiting for us to ask for help.

The drum circles are open to All who are called to the New Moon and the Sacred Days in the Circle of Life. On the New Moon we ask for what we want to make Manifest on the Full Moon. From the black void comes All Creation that is why the New Moon is the most power filled time of the month.

The drum circles are held at Sage Spirit Terra (healing spirit land)
at 9464 North Meer Road, Michigan City, Indiana 46360

Drumming the Soul Awake meets nearly every Friday in south Minneapolis or St. Paul. On average 35 people attend. We drum with a variety of instruments: ecstatic & fun as well as meditative & deep rhythms. We take a break and the second part of the evening is directly shamanic and ceremonial. The experiences, now in their ninth year, are led by Jaime Meyer, who has an M.A. in Theology and the Arts from United Seminary of the Twin Cities and has studied with Tom Cowan, Sandra Ingermann, Martin Prechtel and Ailo Gaup. Our circle is open and welcoming to new comers, out of towners, the experienced and inexperienced alike. We are less of a "core shamanism" circle—although we do journey often—and more of a reverent shamanic community, conducting ongoing ceremonial work for healing and connection to the spirits of nature.

This shamanic drum circle is free and open to all. Shamanic drumming is an ancient approach that uses rhythm to promote healing and self-expression. Recent research reviews indicate that shamanic drumming accelerates physical healing, boosts the immune system and produces feelings of well-being, a release of emotional trauma, and reintegration of self.
