Shamanic Journey Circles
Wednesdays - 6:30 - 9pm in Asheville, NC
On the second and last Tuesdays of every month we welcome beginners for an evening Introduction to shamanic journey work. In these intro circles we focus on Lower World snd Upper World Journeying skills, and on building relationships with our Power Animals and Spirit Teachers. These Circles are intended both for your own enjoyment, as well as for preparation for advanced shamanic trainings with this instructor. All levels of journeyers are welcome in the Intro Circles.

Journeyers with experience in Upper and Lower World Journeying via the drum are invited to join in our Wednesday  circles for experienced journeyers, when we come together in shamanic community to deepen our practice in loving community. Through shamanic practice coupled with increasingly refined intent, we can learn to relinquish our perceptual positions, agendas, belief systems, and strivings. We learn to truly nourish the core of our being, and open to the pure potential of Spirit to act in our lives.

As we call upon our Helping Spirits to guide us, we enter into a world where ordinary rules cease to bind us, and where we can find freedom from precepts that have constrained us previously in our lives. As we explore our own natures as sovereign beings of Spirit, we become increasingly able to claim the birthright of our own sacred gifts, and to create our world anew, with the light of spirit as our guide.

On the last Wednesday of each month we focus on Celtic Shamanic practices, brought forward from ancient ways into techniques that we can practice in our lives to deepen our connection with the natural world, the spirit realms, and with our own authentic selves.

The shamanic journey circle is a wonderful resource for practicing shamanic journey skills. In a circle, individuals trained in the journey process come together to practice in a dedicated environment where one can strengthen their relationships with their Helping Spirits, access spiritual resources for personal healing, and build community with others who love to journey.

This circle uses live drumming as the vehicle for journeying, as in the work of Core Shamanism, as taught by Michael Harner, or by Sandra Ingerman. Our approach is to honor the ability of the individual to find guidance and aid through accessing their own Compassionate Helping Spirits.


Admission: $12

In this workshop we will explore the shamanic perspective on death and dying, and actively engage with the power of death as a profound path of shamanic initiation.

We will learn ways in which to help those who are engaged in the end of life process to prepare for their imminent passing, and discuss ways in which a successful crossing may be inhibited. Techniques will be explored for assisting disembodied souls whose crossing was unsuccessful to complete their journey to the Afterlife.

Ways in which to cultivate a path of power so that we may be power-filled when engaging in shamanic work will be discussed.

We will explore the cosmology of the Afterlife, hold a ceremony for assisting a group of discarnate souls who are seeking assistance in completing their way to the Afterlife, and offer psychopomp assistance to a loved one who has passed on.

We will also discuss the ethics and principles for doing Psychopomp work, as well as the the use of language and the importance of a respectful perspective surrounding each individual's personal paradigm regarding their spiritual beliefs surrounding death and dying.                         

The instructor, Gail Gulick, is authorized by Sandra Ingerman as a teacher and practitioner of psychopomp and other shamanic healing techniques.

Transfigurative Mask-Making:
The Healing Power of the Mask
Asheville, NC
Dates: Saturday, September 7, 9:30 - 5, Sun, September 8, 9:30 - 5
Location: Asheville, NC:                                         Tuition: $250

When the power of focused intention is applied to an in-depth quest of personal import through the formidable medium of mask-making, the potential for catalysis is extraordinary. The transfomative impact of this work has the power to manifest in every area of our lives.

The mask-making process offers a boundless pathway to the deepest experience of the Self, enabling one to perceive and embrace aspects of the Self not ordinarily accessible in our daily lives. As we willingly open ourselves to the healing power of Spirit, and learn to witness ourselves through non-exclusive eyes, the empathy and compassion that we experience towards ourselves flows naturally into the world we live in, strengthening relationship with the Self and with all around us.

Join us in the sacred mask-making process as we journey into the unseen worlds on a quest of personal import. We will begin with the life-mask casting experience. Then applying techniques of focused intention and compassionate introspection to the mask-making process we will work to bring forth a mask of personal power and significance. 


Participants are encouraged to bring natural materials, found objects, items of personal import, or any items that they feel that they might want to incorporate into their work.

Basic materials expenses are included in the workshop tuition.

Pre-Requisites:
*    This workshop is open to all with an earnest desire to explore their deepest nature through the mask-making process.

Residential accommodations are not included.


Space is limited. Please email Gail for an application: info@dreamtimejourneys.net

In Celtic tradition, Samhain (pronounced "Sowen") is a time when the veils between the worlds are thin, when wayward spirits of the dead seek resolution, and when the forces of chaos challenge our determination to survive and flourish. The season of Samhain calls on the seeker to make a stand for life to take them through the hardships of Winter, and to engage in ceremony dedicated to assisting our dead in finding their way.

Join us for a long weekend exploration of the rich teachings of Celtic lore, and the powerful ceremony surrounding the special magic of late Autumn and early Winter. We will experience the multi-faceted approach to Celtic psychopomp work, based on what we moderns have been able to piece together from available resources surrounding the practices of the ancient Celts. In the safe container of sacred environment, we will learn how to engage with the diverse spirits whose specific roles contribute to the fabric of the Wild Hunt ceremony. Employing the tools of the spiritual warrior, we will engage with the wild forces of the Fall, while tending to the spirits of the dead who are seeking to transition to the next phase in their own journeys.

Advanced Shamanic Healing Training:
The Path of Courage and the Sovereign Healer
Asheville, NC
Dates: Saturday December 7: 9:30–5  &  Sunday December 8:  9:30-5
Location: Asheville, NC:                                         Tuition: $200
 
In a world that has reached a crisis point under the weight of academic and hierarchical imposition, are you called to take a stand for your own sovereignty in your healing practice or expressive practice, and in your life in general? Do you long to listen first to your own voice in the sea of relentless opinion, to deeply own and trust your own instincts?
If a vehement "yes" is your answer, then this training is for you.

There is a time and a place for everything, some folks say. In the life of a healer, tradition may provide the foundation on which a healing practice is based. There is so much to learn in any tradition. But for some there comes a time when the very tradition that has formed the basis of their practice begins to impose upon the true authenticity and sovereignty of of that individual, inhibiting their potential.


When we begin to recognize the limitations of a tradition that has once formed our foundation, we have actually embarked upon the path to our own original spirit. It takes courage to heed the call, to test the walls, and strike out from the herd. But when we do, we can finally enter into deep communion with our own True Self, and begin to express it's nature in our lives.

If you are a practitioner who is struggling under the constraints of a particular tradition,... If you are an artist, musician, writer, or dancer  who yearns for greater originality of expression in your work,... or a teacher who has lost inspiration under the confines of a limiting structure, is it really that your own True Self is calling you home?

In this weekend workshop we will engage deeply in the process of following our bread crumbs home. We will enter into an exploration of ourselves as sovereign healers, creatives, and individuals. We will learn ways in which to more deeply align with our own true nature, and discover ways in which we can blaze our own paths in our lives.  We will explore ways in which to take deliberate action to cast off the burden of outworn social structures, belief systems, and external constraints. Through the practice of deep internal alignment, in conjunction with healing arts practicums we will seek to reconnect with our own personal source of inspiration.

Join me for a weekend of deep discovery as we enter into the terrain of the Sovereign Healer.

 
Pre-Requisites:
*    Demonstrated success with shamanic journeying, including:
*    Upper and lower world journeying.
*    A strong relationship with your power animal and spirit teacher.

This training is designed for participants who are experienced with shamanic journeying, and allied with their compassionate helping spirits.

Residential accommodations are not included.

The Razor, by Gail Gulick

There is an edge
where all things crumble
A silver strand  
of waking peace.
We walk this razor
to relinquish
those errant cords
of false embrace
 
Those pompous claims
who split our substance,
Those clutching voices
of distant days,
Those staunch positions
who trap our essence,
Those nagging worries
who keep us prey,
 
We leave these all
to molder sickly
releasing Self
through sweet decay.
We come to know
our own deft urgings
and drink the balm
of love's bouquet.
 
I cannot hold
communications
where glamours bind
our thoughts with pride.
I can but hold
this mirror gently
that we may glimpse
what burns inside.
