In case of severe weather, we may elect to cancel for the sake of everyone's safety. We know that many of you share our emails, while still others simply pass along the dates to friends. If you share these winter dates with anyone, please do not simply tell them the dates: be sure to give them this site's URL so they will know how to find out if a circle is cancelled due to severe weather.
HOW TO FIND OUT IF THE CIRCLE IS CANCELLED:
Check here, on the website. We will post an alert here if we have to cancel. If you can't check the website, you can call us. The best number is Amy's: 610-647-7768.
Here's hoping for no winter storms on second Fridays! Blessed Midwinter and a happy new year to you all!
The circle is open to all adults, whether you have experience journeying or are a beginner! We meet at Main Line Pilates & Yoga in Paoli. A short introductory lesson on basic journeying techniques starts at 7:20pm. If you're coming for the lesson, please arrive promptly. Drumming for the main event – the group journey – begins at 7:45pm.
Shamanic journeying involves going into a trance state in order to allow your spirit body to travel into an alternate level of reality. There, you can find healing and ask for advice from powerful spirit beings willing to ally themselves with you.
The advantage of working within a group is the energetic support provided by a roomful of people working toward a similar end, and also the input and insight you can gain from sharing your journey with others (sharing the results of your journey with the group is not required).
Amy Guskin and Paul Nordquist have been teaching shamanic journeying and leading shamanic journeying circles in the Chester County, Philadelphia (Pennsylvania) suburbs since 1997. They have also released several albums of shamanic journeying music. Amy and Paul have studied shamanism here and abroad for many years, with teachers from various cultural backgrounds, and have practiced their shamanic arts in settings as diverse as city streets, chamber tombs in Ireland, and in the center of the circle at Stonehenge under a summer full moon.

Donations go directly to the costs of holding the monthly circle. Whatever you can afford to give, we are grateful for your generosity!
