Announcing two activities:
I have just completed a two month process of helping my Mother:
a. recover from surgery
c. Sell and empty her home of 32 years
I also completed my first participation in The Cultural Council of Santa Cruz Open Studios during that time. I am in the process of posting some of my art at my at my other website: LindaNadeau.com
Wow! There was so much to think about besides shamanism. Later I will post something about how my practice of shamanism helped me take care of myself during this difficult process.
As I drove home from my most recent trip North, my mind was flooded with ideas for writing about and direct sharing of shamanic insights and the desire to participate in a shamanic community.
Perhaps one reason for this was that I put out a call for assistance in Portland at one point in this process. My Mother said, “you haven’t lived here for three years. No one will come to help.” She may have been surprised but I wasn’t. Six of my friends came to help and others offered other sorts of support. Their kindness flooded my heart with gratitude. Yes, a shamanic or spirit based community doesn’t forget so easily.
In the spirit of community I invite those interested to bring your drums and rattles to a gathering at my home on Friday Night, November 18. 6:30 for tea and 7:00 for circle, sharing, and shamanic activity. No experience necessary, only a desire to learn and participate.
A one day workshop for beginning shamanic practice. I have had so many people ask me about various classes. In order to have participants able to benefit from these classes, it is important that they have rudimentary knowledge of shamanism. This class is to help anyone new to the practice achieve that knowledge. For more information please email me. It will be Saturday, November 19 from 9:00 to 4:00 and the cost is $60.
