Oracle 2000

An International Gathering of Individuals and Circles
Walkers of the Shaman’s Path
Sharing the Oracle Experience with the Global Shamanic Community

Those of us gathering in Oracle came with the intention to offer of our gifts, our prayers, our blessings to the Village, the Desert, and on behalf of the World. The finest gift we could offer in these reflections from our Oracle experience would be to convey to everyone visiting these webpages, experiences and reflections that would inspire the heart, delight the spirit, and give honor to the Spirits that bless all of us on this path.

We will begin posting materials we receive from those at Oracle. Some will seem highly personal; we invite you to peer within that personal reflection for what resonates in your heart. Other postings will reflect on some of the essential aspects of shamanism, eg. "How can we tend the whole world" as well as our individual paths and Circles. We invite you to visit these webpages from time to time. We welcome any comments, questions. If something seems unclear to you in terms of what was occurring, please let us know. For example, we are mounting some slide shows. Eventually all material will have ‘informative’ comments with them. In one slide show, for example, you will see prayer sticks. We will be writing about the making of prayer sticks and how they were used in the world map we constructed and around which we did healing ceremony.

So, remember as we begin posting material we receive, this Oracle Village came together on behalf of the Whole. Our challenge on these pages is to speak to everyone on this path, and to tend the Whole. We will continue to post reflections from Oracle as materials are received in the weeks ahead.

To begin with reflections from Oracle, we are posting the letter that Dan Jordinelli, one of the TSC Council members, has sent to the shamanic Circles around the world who are listed on our Resource Page. Whether you are in Circle or an individual on this path, this letter will give you a glimpse as to how we began and unfolded.
