Shamanic Journeying Class Series – Four Part Series starts June 19th!
Connecting Heaven and Earth
Learn the contemporary practice of Shamanic Journeying, based on ancient techniques to connect with the Spirit world to meet with benevolent guides, angels, nature spirits and ancestors for the purpose of obtaining guidance, self-healing and self-empowerment. Safely explore the world of Spirit, meet your Power Animal and learn how to work with helping spirits in everyday life to improve health, happiness, intuition, and connection to Mother Earth.
We will discover the history of Shamanism, how it has transformed as a contemporary practice, and learn about the practices of traditional Shamans and how they differ from other medicine people. We will also cover how to journey safely in sacred space, incorporating energy clearing and protection techniques along with some basic practices from the indigenous healers and mystics of the Andes.
This is an introductory and foundational course for beginners and more practiced students to learn techniques for their own personal use. Most of us have the ability to journey and no previous experience is needed.
This course; however, is not training to become a “Shaman.” A Shaman is a medicine person who hails from specific tribes in Siberia, Mongolia and a few other places across the globe who have been given this title of honor by their community.
Contemporary Shamanic practices are open to all of us as we honor indigenous and cultures by respecting their titles and traditions, and sharing traditional teachings that we have been given permission to share. In this way, we work with integrity and learn to connect to our own spiritual power, ancestry and guidance which will truly support our evolution, healing and growth for the highest good of all.
Dates: June 19, June 26, July 10 and July 17th from 6:30-9pm, at Twin Star Herbal Education, 65 Bank Street, New Milford, CT 06776, twinstartribe.com.
To register, contact Deana Paqua at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 203-994-5045. Cost is $197 for this program including materials ($177 for current Twin Star Students and Embody the Sacred's Shamanic Practitioner program students). Full payment due at time of registration to hold your spot. Bring a rattle or drum if you have it, a journal and a covering for your eyes if you wish.
Midsummer's Night Drum and Healing Circle
Join us for an evening of drumming, healing and practices to connect us with the energy of the Summer Solstice. The drum will escort us through spiritual and drumming practices to honor this sacred time of year where we welcome the warmth, inspiration and the first harvest. We will work with the medicine of hummingbird, serpent, the spirit of St. John's Wort, and honor the tremendous transmutation power of fire. By taking time to honor the change of seasons and to gather as a group in community, we can enhance our own health, vitality and connection with each other, Mother Earth and the Divine in all beings.
We will be donating 11% of the proceeds from this event to Green Chimneys school in Brewster, NY.
Hosted by Deana Paqua of Embody the Sacred®. June 21, 7pm at Turning Point Healing Arts & Education Center, 100B Danbury Road, Ridgefield, CT. Cost is $22. To register contact Deana Paqua.
