SHAMAN'S TENT: Walking with Your Inner Sage 1st Saturdays, March 7, 10 am-12 noon
Patricia Shannon - This is a series to touch in with your inner knowing, the sage that partners with you but whose voice is sometimes not heard or not recognized as your own divine light. We all have those times when the voice seems too soft, or our own doubting voice dismisses it through fear, lack of clarity, or mistrust. This series helps you connect with that divinity and learn to trust it. We will look at the shadow who mistrusts, the sacred warrior who finds the peace, the diviner who connects with the inner sage and the inner sage who embraces the whole of who you are. Join us to explore the Shaman’s way of envisioning life through shamanic journeying, wisdom sharing, and heartfelt ceremony. You may attend one, two or three of these sessions, $20/morning. Register with Patricia at 860-871-5467, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
