This Medicine Circle is an intensive monthly shamanic circle.
It is an intimate, committed teaching circle for shamanic journeyers to do deep work together and find life tools.

We work on a variety of things, as the spirit of the Eagle will lead us. It could encompass part or all of the following:
Developing a strong shamanic individual toolbox to carry you through your own personal practice.
Discovering what your regular practice is
Finding your song and symbol
Working with spirit to find out what your inborn gifts are, as well as your limitations and challenges.
Medicine Specific to Eagle and Cedar.
Ground work for being on the healer's path is covered: hollow bone, devotion, integrity etc. Some basic healing methods will be taught and practiced in the circle. If you are called extensive training in healing methods like extraction or soul retrieval, that would require taking extra classes.
You will be expected to maintain a personal altar at home. You will learn to rely on your Spirit friends for assistance in managing the trigger areas of your life and you will rely on the group to support you. We will run group journeys, interactions with the Natural Wheel of the Year as well as ceremonies for common intentions.
The content will shift to meet the group's needs as people's experiences blossom.
