Messages from the Seven Dream Teachers: Shamanic Journeywork w/ author Evan Pritchard (Bird Medicine)
As we enter Mayís full moon, the Flower Moon, we will go on a series of seven shamanic journeys into the spirit world to humbly seek answers from seven dream teachers in the seven directions. In each encounter we will request a message, a vision, and a gift bundle, each in a different but sacred manner. Participants are encouraged to share their experience - but it is not required. In this approach to journeying, we will focus on the meaning of the symbolic gift or token that is being given, one that could possibly hold the key to our future. When an ancestor or departed relative, animal, bird, historic or iconic figure, mountain or landscape reveals the concealed gift and says to us ďIs this what you are looking for?Ē we can be sure that it is, even if we didnít know what we were looking for before. These gifts are not material ones to be hoarded, but spiritual ones to help us serve The Great Mystery Itself.
