Shamanic Practices: Equinox, Balance, The Great Song

This seminar will include three main topics:

  • A Celebration of the Equinox—Spring begins on March 20 at 4:59 p.m. We will explore ways to celebrate this day of balance that ushers in the season of light.
  • Balance—In this time of balance, we will engage with our own light and dark.
  • The Great Song—One of the Celtic conceptualizations of the universe is that of the “Oran Mor” or Great Song. We will experiment with sound, toning and song to seek our song within the Great Song.


We will, of course, continue to deepen elements of previous sessions, as well as discuss directions for the remaining two sessions of this series (which will certainly include outdoor activities in nature). 


Participants should be familiar with the shamanic journey and have a relationship with their spirit helper(s).
