Another Kind of Journey

We arrived home, safely, last night, from our Colorado trip.  The kids seem good (although I worry about my son...), and the grandson is growing and becoming more and more interesting as he gets older :-)  We had some car trouble on the homeward leg, but it all worked out fine.

Today has been a day to do the laundry, catch up on some sleep, walk in the sunlight, and try to relax just a bit.  Tomorrow, we head off for a two day workshop that is the beginning of learning how to "DO" shamanism at a deeper level.  We have our drums, our rattles, our notebooks, our stones, our blankets.  We've done some significant amount of reading and study.  We are as ready as we can be.

I imagine that each of us have our own personal expectations, but I hope to...

  • learn how to live with more presence, more awareness, and more joy
  • begin to form ties to a community who can share this with me
  • figure out how to further the healing that began with my soul retrieval
  • learn how to transform power and energy
  • learn to create for myself and my future

We'll head to bed in awhile, set the alarm for an early start.  This should be interesting...



  1. I am glad you are home - safe and sound.......

    And I am looking forward to hearing more about your weekend workshop - I admit it I am intrigued....

    Happy to hear your trip went well, except for that bit of car trouble. Can't wait to travel through this experience with you as your share on your blog.
    Sounds exciting with some lofty goals and expectations.


  3. Indeed, this should be interesting. Keep us posted?

  4. Oh swan how exciting for you all! Can't wait to hear all about it!

    Hugs and love,

  5. Hi family.. hope that the shaman trip has gone well. Love your new kitten and watering system. Hope all of you had a great time. Looking forward to hearing how it went.

  6. We did attend the beginning shamanism workshop over the weekend. It was interesting, to say the very least. I am now plunged into the preparations for the school year, and aware that I should say something about our weekend... I am just not ready yet. There is much to process, absorb, and ponder. Give me just a bit of time....

      Life sounds good for you in recent times. I'm so glad. *smiles*

      I hope you came home with some richness to deepen with.

      I would be so interested to learn what you are reading. It's been a long while since I did reading on shamanism. At the time I refocused myself, there was a growing body of really good books on the topic. One of my favorite writers on shamanism is Joan Halifax. She's written some good stuff. She comes to things from an academic's perspective, not only from the perspective of a shamanic student. You might find that enjoyable. It is also wonderful in that she's got a very grounded perspective on the subject. I also enjoy some Tibetan Lama writers and some of the writers from other Asian cultures who combine shamanic practice with Buddhism. Very fascinating and really grounded also.

      I taught shamanism for about a decade when I was younger. My journey took me toward looking at another way to focus consciousness: Buddhism. My advice, if you welcome it, would be to not let yourself get distracted with ephemeral visuals from journeys or dreams. Look for themes in dreams, visions and journeys over long periods of time. Look for those things which stabilize you in every day life, not those things which cause distractions from being present in the moment. Both kinds of information come to you when you open up to this kind of spiritual journey. It is rather like a wondrous buffet. It is lush and so much to absorb and choose from. Yet, it is very important to understand what is nourishment and what is just going to cause a sugar high or mess up your normal diet. Most often, very simple foods are the very best for you and will get you the farthest in your explorations.

      I hope you find this journey a very great blessing. I did. *smiles*
