New Happenings at My House

2 11 2011

Announcing two activities:

I have just completed a two month  process of helping my Mother:

a. recover from surgery

b. move

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.

ACTIVITY ONE

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.

ACTIVITY TWO

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.

Summer Shamanic Events

3 07 2011

WHEN: Wednesday Nights, July 6, 13, 20, 27

6:30 for visit, start immediately at 7:00

Finish by 9:00 sharp

My summer is as crazy as anybodies but it gives us the change to do shamanism outdoors. The only way to get it happening is to make it fit. If you want to join my shamanic work group, RSVP and be here. As much as possible, these activities will be outdoors so dress accordingly. A shamanic work group isn’t about cleaning the yard, it is about doing deep personal work to prepare us to help others. No fee but donations accepted.

Experience not required in this specific work however basic shamanic knowledge is required. If you need to get up to speed email me with a request. I can do basic training with small groups for a small fee.

 





Event: Healthy Living and Local Foods

3 07 2011

A primary requirement of shamanic activities is to maintain a healthy body. One reason we  have so much respect for people from indigenous cultures around the world is that although they may have little money, they eat local organic foods, perform physical labor and live in closer harmony with nature, our great teacher and ally.

There is information on a local showing of a movie which helps us understand why local foods are so hard to find and often expensive.

The movie will be shown
Tuesday, July 19th at  7pm at the GreenGrange, Santa Cruz

This event is for those of you interested in learning more about shamanism in daily life, either to deepen your own spiritual practice or to use to help others.  It is called experimenter because shamanism isn’t a doctrine, it is about your personal experience.

Four Types of Upcoming Shamanic Events: Woman’s Talking Circle, Drumming and Journeying Circle, Shamanic Healing Evening, Drop in Healing Clinic

29 08 2010


These four types of events are quite different. I apologize for the length of this email. It is sort of complicated to put so much information together but I don’t want to overload anyone with multiple emails.

September is not only back to school month but for me it is also a time of getting back to work. Since I finally have a sense of being home, it feels wonderful to offer to share some of my past practices with new friends. And speaking of friends, I encourage you to bring a friend as I don’t know that many people here.  I may find myself doing these practices alone but I will be here doing them, none the less. I am optimistically believing, if I build it, they will come. I am looking forward to getting to know others in the community. Please feel free to share this email with any friends you think might be interested. Don’t hesitate to call if you want more information.

I am excited to share this passion with you.  You may notice that one thing all these events have in common is that they are very affordable and perhaps less intimidating than scheduling a one-on-one reading or healing appointment.  They all allow as much or as little participation as you are prepared to do. Come to one or all. The more the merrier.
