“We are all part of the ancient Sacred Circle of Life. The essential truth of this reality cannot be denied no matter how we look at it; it is simply an irrevocable truth. To embrace and reclaim our Indigenous relationship to all Life is to remember and lovingly celebrate our sacred relationship with our Mother Earth, all relatives of our One Human Family and our kinship with all Life.”  ~ Hereditary Chief Phil Lane Jr. 

Indigenous Teachings hold the wisdom and the medicine to restore our right relationship with the earth, with one another and with all living things. We believe that these Teachings should be available to all people who are seeking them.

To honor and celebrate Mother Earth and the Indigenous Teachings of Turtle Island, we are inviting anyone who would like to attend this FREE day of Traditional Teachings and ceremony to join us. For the gift of receiving these teachings, we ask that all who participate offer one act of love and kindness to Mother Earth.

With Nate Long "Owl"
Saturday July 22, 2023
8am PDT / 11am PDT / 5pm CET
Approximately 2 hours

Shamans Directory Member Nate Long is an Intentional Artist and community builder, who gains insight through meditative journey-work, and whose creations are truly a “made prayer” to address something bigger or deeper in the individual or in the greater world. There are many reasons to use journey-work as a tool. Journeying allows us (or Spirit) to change our perspective. It gives us a different angle from which to view an intention or situation, to better empathize and more easily find wisdom and solutions where previously we had thought there were none.

Life offers us a spectrum of experiences from physical and emotional traumas, to those that heal and sustain us with joy and love. For better and for worse, these things shape us into who we are. Deep journey work provides a unique way of engaging with our inner self, allowing us to explore the path to healing from different points of view. During this session, we will have an open discussion about recognizing and emphasizing the importance of perspective change as a part of our practice. To explore and deepen this idea a special flute and drum journey will be offered where you will be guided to meet your child self.

Stepping back to talk with your very young self provides you with the opportunity to explore who you were before any of your limiting beliefs were solidified. It’s a chance to listen to that child's story and provide advice, strength and love for them - perhaps even allow them to more easily navigate the things that are yet to come. This journey is not meant to fix or heal things in your past, but as an opportunity to simply sit, listen, and converse with this very unique and impressionable you.

With Chuck Wilson and Wakan Drums
Saturday July 08, 2023
8am PDT / 11am EDT / 5pm CET
Approximately 2 hours

In the Spring of 2019 Shamans Directory Member Chuck Wilson was given a vision of a specific sacred drum that would honor the Earth, the Tall People, all Tribes, and all of our Earth Relations and Cultures worldwide. In the last part of the vision, the Spirits asked him to create these drums. Presenting Wakan Drums at his first Powwow in August 2019, brought him tears of joy as many Elders knew what they were, thanked him for “bringing them to the Earth,” and gave the drums their blessings.

Wakan Drums are Sacred Drums. Unlike sacred ceremonial drums which are only brought forth for ceremony, or personal sacred drums that are kept much like a sacred pipe, Wakan Drums are to be shared by the Keeper with others so that many people can have the opportunity to “chat with Spirit” if that is meant to be. They are to be played, held, honored and protected as they are here to help many.  Wakan Drums give a one-on-one spiritual connection with the person holding the drum. Having an intermediary hold the drum and interpret the visions or messages is not how Wakan Drums work. You hold the gateway over your heart and see what happens!

Today, Chuck’s work includes creating Wakan Drums for people who seek them, helping people journey and interact with Spirit as they hold a drum, conducting drum healing workshops to teach what he has learned, and helping people take their first steps onto the Red Road or expand their path as practitioners. His mission is to offer as many drums as he can to the world. His passion is to provide opportunities for people to hold these drums, connect to their Spirit Guides and Ancestors, and begin to understand that Sacred Drums are their own entities, and to know that Spirits walk with all of us, which is quite a surprise for many.

Hear Chuck's amazing call from Spirit, and learn about the spiritual aspect of sacred shamanic drums and drumming. If you have a drum, bring it with you. This session will surely deepen your relationship!

What Different Religions, Cultures, Faiths, and Ancient Texts Can Teach Us About Water
A Three Day Online Masterclass
With Veda Austin
June 3-5, 2023

Shamans Directory Ambassador Veda Austin is a water researcher, public speaker, mother, artist and author. Of Maori descent, her tribal affiliation is Tainui. Veda has dedicated over a decade to observing and photographing the life of water. She believes that water is fluid intelligence, observing itself through every living organism on the planet and in the universe. She sees water as Source rather than a resource, and considers all bodies of water to be sacred.

Her primary area of focus is photographing water in its ‘state of creation’, the space between liquid and ice. It is through her remarkable crystallographic photos that water reveals its awareness of not only Creation, but thought and intention through imagery. She loves to reconnect children to the living water systems inside and outside of their bodies, believing that the 'tamariki' (children) are the water bearers of the future. She also spends a lot of time doing interviews and podcasts where she shares her findings and inspiring perspectives. When not traveling the world, Veda makes her home in New Zealand.

Veda offers only one Masterclass a year, each with a unique and specific theme. This month she is offering her first ever 3-day event. Join her and an incredible line up of speakers from all around the world as they share their wisdom and knowledge. If you have ever wanted to dive into the deeper spiritual meaning of water, this is the masterclass for you! From science, culture, religion, and philosophy, they are linking Water, God and Spirit together in ways that will not only expand your heart, but also your relationship with the life force energy that we call water.

All recordings from the 3 days will be made available to registrants, regardless of whether you are able to attend the live online event. No prerequisites are required.

Traditional Talking Circle Honoring the Ancestors and Magnified Healing Crossing Over Ceremony
With Monica McWhirter and Consuelo Marroquin
Saturday June 23, 2023
8am PDT / 11am EDT / 5pm CET
Approximately 3 hours

Topic: Restoring and Healing Our Relationship with the Ancestors.

The traditions of the Anishinaabe Peoples and other First Nation communities across the world are rich with teachings that honor and celebrate the ancestors. It is a common practice in these communities to have ancestor altars, to feast them, and to communicate with them regularly.

It has been said, that one of the reasons for the extent of pain and discomfort that we are experiencing  on the earth at this time, is that we have neglected our ancestors. There are ancestors who have vital wisdom to share and are waiting to be heard, and others who are still suffering in this realm, unable to move on, due to trauma that they experienced in their lifetime with no one to assist them. This Talking Circle and Crossing Over Ceremony is an invitation to heal and restore our walk with those who have gone before us.

The Ancestors are speaking. Are you listening? What do they have to say? Are you aware of wisdom or suffering that has gone unanswered? Are you ready to answer their call? There will be two rounds in this talking circle where you will have the opportunity to share your current relationship with the ancestors and your promise going forward.

This session will end with a Crossing Over Ceremony for all of the ancestors who are ready to let go of their earthly suffering and move on to a higher vibration of pure Love, Light, and Freedom.

Talking Circles are traditionally offered by a skilled facilitator and an Elder who is working within their community. As we are a global platform, we are privileged to have Monica McWhirter an Algonquin and Metis Woman, a cultural teacher who lives life according to the 7 Grandfather Teachings facilitating the Talking Circle and Conusulo Marroquin, a seasoned practitioner of Magnified Healing, Reiki and Shamanic Energy Medicine guiding the Crossing Over Ceremony.

Lecture followed by Special Shopping Benefit
Center for Traditional Textiles, Cusco
With Nilda Callanyoupa
Saturday June 10, 2023
8am PST/ 11am EST / 10am PERU / 5pm CET
Andean textiles lecture  1 hour
Shopping benefit approximately 3 hours 

The history of Andean textiles stretches back thousands of years, to the first people who settled along the coast of what is now modern-day Peru. Long before a system of writing was developed, textiles were valued as the primary form of aesthetic expression and communication. Ancient weavers gave life to the stories and traditions of their people through original styles, motifs, and techniques that developed throughout the desert coasts and mountain highlands of the Andean region.

Nilda Callañaupa Alvarez, Founder and Directory of the Center for Traditional Textiles in Cusco Peru was born in the small community of Chinchero. Like many other children she was responsible for taking care of her family’s flock of sheep and spent her time learning to spin and weave with her friends. As she learned more complex designs, she could see there was a powerful history behind the art of her people. Seeing that the art was slowly being lost, she embarked on a journey that would change the fate of Cusco textiles. The first person from her community to attend college, she went on to become one of the founders and now the Director of CTTC.  An award-winning author, international speaker, and expert in Cusqueñan textiles.

Join us as Nilda guides us on a journey into this rich textile tradition that continues today through contemporary Andean weavers who proudly continue in the path of their ancestors brining forward their magnificent symbols and patterns in communion with spirits of the nature beings of the land.

Join us for either or both parts of this event

With Eva Tree Blum
Saturday May 13, 2023
8am PDT / 11am EST / 5pm CET
Approximately 2 hours

Please join Shaman’s Directory Member Eva Tree in a co-created hummingbird gratitude ceremony. In reverence and sacred play, we will honor and celebrate our courageous and mighty pollinators and their vast contribution to humanity and the web of life.

In tribal legends across the Americas, hummingbird is portrayed as a Spirit being who connects us with the ancestral realms and often plays the important role of messenger from the afterworld. The ancient Mayan’s believed that the hummingbird was the “sun in disguise” appearing in hummingbird form to court the moon. Today Hummingbird is a clan animal in some Turtle Island (North American) cultures including the Pueblo of New Mexico and some Northwest Coastal tribes as well.

In addition to being the star of magic and mythology, hummingbirds also play a vital role in the physical realm as amazingly adapted and vital pollinators. Their long, slender bills and tube-like tongues drink up to two times their body weight in flower nectars per day; moving from plant to plant, pollinating native wildflowers and seasonal gardens; while eating mosquitoes and other tiny insects in mid-air for protein along the way!

Together, we will embark on a guided journey to celebrate our beloved pollinators who flutter, forage and creep from plant to plant. Activate your body temple with buzzing and song. Become more spacious and alive as we deepen our roots and blossom with our inner garden. Be in greater sacred reciprocity with Pachamama and our pollinator kin. Add our prayers and intentions towards the web of life and a vibrant future with Mother Earth.

With Tricia Bennett
Saturday April 22, 2023
8am PDT / 11am EDT / 5pm CET
Approximately 2 hours 

"We are stars wrapped in skin. The light you are seeking has always been within."  ~ Rumi

Guardian Angels, Guiding Stars, Helping Spirits, Nature Beings, and all the names we use to call on the unnamable - the Cosmos, God, Great Spirit, Higher Power, OM, the Tao, the Universe, Wakan Tanka, the Collective Unconscious, these are just some of the names that we give to the voices that speak to us in times of stillness, confusion, and change.

Most of us are familiar with these voices and can recount, in detail, the times when we had the courage to listen and take a leap of faith or suffered the consequences of not listening when we knew better. The fact is, despite the profound and lasting impact these moments have on our lives, most of us don’t listen to these “voices of Spirit” until we are in a pinch and desperate enough to listen to a voice other than that of our own.

In Western societies we are taught to be self-sufficient and to rely on ourselves alone. This is tragically limiting from a shamanic earth-based view of our planet and the cosmos where everything is alive with wisdom to share. In these communities, children learn to listen to the wind and speak to the Spirits of the mountains and the streams from the time they are born. These voices guide them throughout their lives and are sacred and critical allies, offering a vast body of wisdom that extends far beyond our human limitations.

What could and would be possible for you if you allowed yourself to have regular and ongoing access to the wisdom and support of these living energies? In this session we will learn a daily practice for learning to listen and be guided by the voices of Spirit. We will see how this daily connection deepens with time and how, if allowed to expand, will guide you to the most authentic expression of yourself and the profound peace, confidence, and certainty of knowing that you are living out the destiny that you came here to fulfill.

With Monica McWhirter 
Saturday April 08, 2023
8am PDT / 11am EDT / 5pm CET

Approximately 2-3 hours

We are all medicine people. What are you doing with yours?

Talking Circles are a place to address topics of importance and urgency within a community, and to listen and learn from one another in the traditional way of the Indigenous Peoples of Canada and the U.S.A. There are many prophecies across the earth telling us that the time has come to gather together and make better choices. Although their wordings may differ slightly, their message is the same - humanity is at a crossroad.

If you are reading this, you are standing with us at that crossroad. Your life experience, ancestral lineage, or pure curiosity has led you here - and you have wisdom to share. We are all here to make a difference. Some of us are clear about the difference that we are here to make, others know there is "something more" for us to do, but we have not yet fully defined it, and many more are just waking up and experiencing the feeling that they are going to be a part of a great change that is coming. Where do find yourself in terms of claiming your medicine and sharing it?

This Talking Circle will be an exploration for all of us into the heart of that conversation. Voice your opinions. Allow yourself to learn from and be inspired by others. Discover and define the wisdom that is unique to you. Clear away the stories and energies that prevent you from fully trusting and manifesting your gifts. Further your knowledge as to why Indigenous Healers and Teachers from across the globe are joining Shamans Directory.

Please join us. Chi Miigwetch!
All are welcome.
