Amazing! Last night, since Friday's formal ordinary reality circle is on break this month, eight human beings I know (possibly more, known and unknown) circled around in Spirit with the Spirits at our locations, over nearer and farther distances, along with many mineral, plant, and animal realm representatives. We were journeying for mission renewal, as well as inspiration and encouragement around this intention.
Message to me from Spirit and Spirits: Circling around over distances is not only a valid way to gather but one of the best ways, whether through higher-tech or lower-tech means.
The 7PM Friday night circle will return to ordinary reality in June. Some of the circles will be teaching and discussion circles, still offered as shamanic shifting for world transformation towards better and best. Anyone attending in-person regularly over a 2 to 3 year period will be able to receive instruction - ultimately from Spirit and Spirits though introduced by Elizabeth - on most of the topics, methods, and techniques relating to contemporary shamanic ways treated in the Foundation for Shamanic Studies (FSS) programs.
There will be an application and interview process for anyone wishing to attend the Friday circle regularly as the core of an official apprenticeship in contemporary shamanics. Those who complete a 2 to 3 year apprenticeship as well as qualified experienced contemporary shamanic practitioners who have already complete 2 to 3 or more years of experiential shamanic education may seek formal ordaination as a shamanic minister through Companions Circle Church through a similar application and interview process (including a background check and our Board of Directors vote of approval).
The Shamanic Shift Center Friday night shamanic circle will still be open to all contemporary shamanizers - and shamanic innovators. Pre-registering by calling or emailing ahead will be required.
Occasionally there will be Fridays when the circle will not meet in ordinary reality while still gathering through non-ordinary reality and cyberspace, because of Elizabeth's ordinary reality work schedules (for funding for keeping Companions Circle and Shamanic Shift Center open) - i.e. property management, writing and editing, and marriage (and other ceremony) officiating. Some weeks the circle may gather at other spactime coordinates.
