“In many shamanic societies, if you came to a medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they would ask one of four questions: When did you stop dancing? When did you stop singing? When did you stop being enchanted by stories? When did you stop finding comfort in the sweet territory of silence?”

Future drum circles for participants of this workshop and the one before it will be offered, with enough interest from students, in the foreseeable future.
Learn this very basic, mini introduction to shamanic work as taught by Shannon Hall Walker, a medium, healer, and student of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies.
In this experiential workshop participants will be taught how to use drums to alter the ordinary state of consciousness with the endeavor traveling to the non-ordinary reality known as the lower world. Particular emphasis is on problem solving and healing. Participants are introduced to core shamanism (as developed by Michael Harner, founder of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies),which are common methods used for the classic shamanic journey. Methods are taught to meet and study with each participant’s own individual spirit helpers to learn how to restore spiritual power and health.
Each participant can anticipate working alone and with a partner.
This workshop is intended for those who want to help bring strength & power to themselves and others.
What to bring:
A rattle or drum if you have one. Dress comfortably with warm socks. Bring a bandana, a cushion of yoga mat, a blanket, a rough-surfaced rock approximately the size of a grapefruit a pen and notebook to record your journeys. A lunch break of between 60-90 minutes will be part of the day’s activities. Bring a lunch if you like.
