One of the most distinctive elements of shamanic practice is learning to enter into direct connection with guides, totem spirits, ancestors, and one’s own intuition through shifting out of ordinary consciousness into an expanded state of awareness, often called trance state. Rhythmic drumming or rattling is used to facilitate the shift into trance, and anyone can learn to safely and effectively journey as a tool for spiritual growth. Appropriate for both those new to exploring shamanism, as well as for those with experience, this gently guided session provides the opportunity for participants to enter into the trance state with intention; access guidance, protection, knowledge, and healing energy directly; and bring the gifts of the journey back into daily life to continue guiding them on their spiritual journey.
The Shamanic Empowerment Collective brings together a diverse community of individuals who share an interest in Earth-based spirituality, Indigenous wisdom traditions, Animism, and shamanic practices. We believe that we all have the capacity to heal and transform ourselves. We offer classes, workshops, events, and community rituals that engage people with all levels of experience directly in shamanic practices that support them in claiming personal power, self-knowledge, and sacred connection, while also anchoring deeply in respect, humbleness, and integrity in relationship to the origins of the work we share. The Shamanic Empowerment Collective meets every other month in Vienna, VA at East Meets West Yoga.
Collective founders, Angela Blueskies & Helene Garrovillo, have deep roots in the sacred traditions from the Peruvian Andes and Amazon, and have been journeying to Peru to work with shamans, mentors, healers, medicine men and women for over a decade. Angela & Helene co-vision a world where people live in balance and harmony with the natural world, with themselves, and with each other, and believe that through sharing sacred work in community, personal and global transformation is possible.
