The term “Medicine Wheel” was used by certain indigenous tribes to honor and experience sacred rituals connected to states of consciousness, Spirit Guides, and cycles of life of an individual and community. This 5-week series will focus on the sacred “medicine” of life and consciousness, as honored by the shamanic Medicine Wheel. We will connect with our Spiritual Guides to receive guidance and healing for the gifts of each direction on the Medicine Wheel. We’ll use indigenous teachings I learned from one of my wonderful teachers, Michael Drake – a wise and talented teacher of Cherokee descent, who also studied in the Mongolian Shamanic tradition. Michael Drake is author of numerous books and many recordings. See his website: http://shamanicdrumming.com/
In addition to shamanic journeying, an ancient form of meditation offering direct connection to Spirit, each class also includes meditation with drumming patterns of each of the 7 Directions on the Medicine Wheel, as well as drumming patterns to clear energy and call in beneficial energy, as taught by Michael Drake. You’ll work with your personal Spiritual Guide for direct and personal guidance and healing in each class. Personal empowerment is catalyzed and magnified by journeying and processing together as a group! Remember, the external world reflects your internal state. The collective external world is reflecting a struggle with the process of awakening now…What a great time for each of us to clear, empower, and expand our consciousness, not just for our own happiness and destiny, but for the enlightenment of the global collective! As is said, “Be the change you want to see!”
