SHAMANIC JOURNEY CIRCLE with Comma Williams ~ Livestreaming Tuesday, October 5, 9:30-11:30am

Shamanic journeying is a tool that has been traditionally used by indigenous shamans for the healing of individuals and communities. Most commonly, shamans use drums and rattles to shift theirconsciousness into non-ordinary reality, a trance-like state, to communicate with their helping guides and spirits. We know now that anyone can learn to journey, to connect with their own helping guides and spirits in non-ordinary reality in order to get answers to personal questions, solve problems, open creativity, see new ways of being in the world and obtain healing information for themselves and their community. Join Comma Williams online for this journey circle where we will travel into non-ordinary reality and ask for information to help us get clarity about our path for this coming year. At the end of the journey you will have an opportunity to create a visual representation of your journey, to help ground it in ordinary reality, to make it visible in this world. $20 ~ register here
