Solstice Shamanic Visioning Retreat, with Elizabeth Meacham.

Saturday, December 19th, 11 am to 4 pm, EST. This event will be on Zoom, with a long break for a guided offline practice.

As we move through the dark night of the collective soul that is the global pandemic – at the dawning of the decade of the Age of Aquarius – what are we visioning for our lives, our families, our communities, and what are we visioning for our Earth? Now is a time, more ripe than ever in our lifetimes, to ride the waves of shift available to us to find pathways to fulfill our spiritual mission on the planet. This retreat will focus on careful and intentional preparation for deep visioning and life guidance journeys using the Earth Spirit Dreaming shamanic ecotherapy method.
The retreat will begin a week before we meet with embodied practices you can do on your own. I will send the list of rituals and practices to everyone one week before the retreat; these preparatory activities will not be overly time consuming and I will create flexibility so you can fit them into your life. On the day that we meet, we will open with a shamanic ecotherapy ceremony to invoke and enliven our shared circle, set our intentions, and initiate connection with our spirit helpers and guides. Following this, we will each be offline for 90 minutes for refreshment and an individual practice that I will give you to do on your own. We will then reconvene for journey work, integration, sharing, and next steps.
Schedule for December 19th (times are EST): 11 am – 12:30 pm: Shamanic Ecotherapy Winter Solstice Ceremony on Zoom; 12:30 – 2 pm: Lunch and Personal Practice on Your Own; 2 – 4 pm: Journey Work, Integration, Sharing, Next Steps.
Cost and Registration: This retreat is free for Web of Light members. Joining the Web of Light online community cost $27 per month for this and other monthly events; cancel anytime). You can also attend this retreat by purchasing a ticket, cost $130 USD.

Walking the Sacred Way. Near PERTH, SCOTLAND, with Brian Anderson. Shamanism opens us to the sacredness of life, this process moves us away from a hierarchical and linear mind to a circular state of consciousness where we know we are connected as one web of life and come to experience life as sacred and that all life is alive and that land is sacred and so asks to be respected. Cultures across the world talk of nature as the visible face of spirit so as we walk we are walking in the presence of spirit this is why a conscious walk in nature can be so restorative for us.

This 3 hour workshop offers an opening and deepening of this sacred experience and offers a practical and effective method of healing that you can use in your life as and when needed. We start with our ceremony with respect and moving our perception to see that land as a sacred living spirit, one that is aware of us as we are aware of it. We then will walk out with the land to continue our work and finally return to share and integrate your experience where support will be given to carry on this opening in your everyday.

You will need to bring with you a question about something that you need support with or that is currently challenging you. There is no need to share this as we will be working to resolve this in a different way with the healing power of the natural world. Email
