Welcome to 2020! I hope you are enjoying a good start to the new year. I’m so excited to announce that we have a time and location for our next Portal! Come join us the weekend of April 3rd, in Portland, Oregon for a weekend in the world of Elk.
As many of you know, Marv has been my mentor since we met at the Four Winds almost 20 years ago. I had the pleasure of meeting Shanon during my second experience through the medicine wheel about 10 years ago in Canada. I’m delighted to bring them to Portland so they can share their unique knowledge of the Blackfoot Tradition taught to them by Joe and Josephine Crowshoe. You can learn more about their story here.
For those of you who haven’t attended a Portal workshop before, the Portals series offers a gateway to the worlds beyond our consciousness. There are nine Portals within the series, they may be taken in any order, and they each stand alone. If you’ve been interested in shamanic training but don’t know if it is right for you, this is a great way to find out. Within each Portal we learn what each emissary can offer us. It is an experiential workshop, and so come prepared to create your own individual relationship that you take with you in your own life.
Elk shows us how to stand our ground. Elk is immovable, self-assured, and powerful. Elk shows us how to become our own person so we can claim our place in the world. While the male make his place in the world, the female creates a nurturing community safe under his protection, creating the balance of polar opposites. In essence, we will learn how to balance the power of both the masculine and feminine in our life.
Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have questions about the Portal series. For details on this Workshop, please click here.
