When is the next one?
Grandmothers Wolf Medicine is now in full swing :) check it out!
Our Drumming Circles...
are for those of us who wish to have a place to meet up with our Spirit Helpers
in non-ordinary reality and garner support from like minded peers.
We come together on or close to each New Moon to attune to the new rhythms
about to begin.
Our WolfWalking Drum Circles will start up again in January 2018.
"But I've never journeyed this way before?"
Shamanic Drumming is a great way to seek guidance, clarity and answers to life's questions!
I highly recommend that you schedule an appointment, spend a couple of hours with me to learn how to journey beforehand so that we can find you a Power Animal. It's fun. It's easy. Anyone can do it!
"Can I just show up?" Only if you have previous experience with journeying in the Michael Harner method. Our space is limited to a maximum of 12 people. Please RSVP with Sonara.
We'll ask you to partner up for the evening. Sometimes it's easier to journey for someone else than it is for yourself so having a partner and asking questions for each other, is a great experience but journeying for yourself is also an option. This way the information coming back to you is surprisingly accurate because the ego of the person asking the question has absolutely no attachment to the outcome. Most often your journeying partner will understand the meaning of the messages received even if you don't. After the journey, we remain seated or stand up to walk the circle if we choose to share our "experiences". Time allows for two drum journeys.
After we close the Circle, we pull a name to announce the prize winner of the evening. A simple unadorned leather medicine bag is the free giveaway handmade by Sonara. We've set aside social time and time for "shopping" before and after the Circle! Our mini Shaman's Market offers a variety of shamanic art, drum bags, medicine bags, services, opportunities, helpful information and exciting future workshops.
This Moon Cycle begins on --- December 29, 2016
Our Thirteen Grandmothers Wolf Medicine Modules are sent out on the following dates:
January 26, 2017
Skeleton Woman, Bone Woman, Wolf Mother...
Facilitated by Sonara ~ Grandmother SilverBear
For this lunar cycle in the month of January, the signature color is orange and the concept is to "Learn the Truth". Developing a partnership with Nature offers so many opportunities to learn directly from the source. This is the Medicine teaching we offer during this moon cycle.
"Talks With Relations" is our Clan Mother and journey guide. She is the keeper of rhythm, weather and the seasons, a Guardian of the languages of the trees, stones and creatures. The keeper of Earth's needs and the Mother of our planetary family.
"Bone Collector" is the medicine of Wolf.
Talks With Relations and Akasha from the ThunderWolf Pack are present in Spirit at this time to assist us in working along with our personal Totems and Guides.
Together they teach us how to understand the unspoken languages of Nature and kinship with all life forms.
- How to enter the sacred spaces of others with respect
- How to honor the cycles, rhythms and changes of the seasons and weather.
- How to communicate with the life force in all dimensions and understand the truths of each.
We work with our ritual tools, our Staffs -
Or learn how to make your own Staff in our On-line Course.
Come, join us on our adventures ...
When participants are open and willing to let the wolves speak to them, messages come forward for the growth of the Lodge Vision too. At our Circles we always begin by introducing ourselves, speaking our intentions to our Ancestors, Guides, Power Animals, Angels, Masters and the Place Spirits. Singing an Opening Four Directions song and casting a protective circle helps us step into Sacred Space and leave the cares of the day outside the door. A grounding exercise connects each of us to Mother Earth. Participants lay down on the yoga mats to journey, positioned comfortably with our feet towards the alter and our heads to the outer edge of the circle to embark on a quest for knowledge and answers to our questions. Sometimes we receive a healing or teaching from the Wolves or our Guides and when the drum beat changes and stops, we all return safe and sound to the circle. When it comes time to share with the group we may choose to stand or lean on the Grandmother's staff and tell the story of our journey like the Bard's of old or remain silent. By walking around the circle and sharing our journey with emotion and or excitement, we ground the new energies in our bodies and have fun doing it!
Having some previous journey experience is a necessary prerequisite. You should already have a Power Animal or Spirit Guide that you trust and some experience of traveling in the Spirit World. You will be protected and taken care of. All who journey at our Drumming Circles are carried by the humming vibrations of our Wolf Lodge Drum, our "shaman's horse". After the second journey we join hands to send the excess energy towards others in need. We close the directions and open the circle with a blessing and a Grandmother's prayer. As we clean up, someone will be asked to draw a name from the bucket and announce the prize winner of the free giveaway, to complete the event.
Will it be you?
A charismatic assistant will be at the front door from 6:30 pm until 7:00 pm
Everyone is smudged as you enter before the Circle starts and your name is entered in our draw for a chance to win a free medicine bag.
The mini Shaman's Market is open from 6:30 pm until 7:00 pm
At 7 o'clock the doors are locked for the night.
We'll do two journeys... share our stories after each as time allows and have fun!
We'll close the circle between 9:30 and 10:00 pm
Art, drum bags and medicine bags are available at our little Shaman's Market
