Join Our Next Call-to-Action

Led by Katy Breunig

Tuesday, December 8 from 12-1PM MST | Cost: FREE

Come together through the power of community and help to generate a greater impact within the world.

Shamans throughout time have used special techniques to tend to trauma and disasters. Our monthly Call-to-Action events apply these techniques in a practice known as Shamanism Without Borders.

Trained practitioners lead the group to tend to situations ranging from natural disasters, acts of terrorism, war and pollution, to anything that causes disruption and suffering to humanity, to the animal and plant life, and the earth’s delicate bio-system.

These events are by nature community healing events and provide an opportunity for anyone interested in being of service to participate. All are welcome!

Note: Upon entering the tending space, all participants will be placed on mute. Please turn the video-sharing feature off once the ceremony begins.

HOW TO PREPARE

Create sacred space in a quiet place where you will not be disturbed by other people or loud noises. Make a small altar, light a candle, and have your drum, and rattle available. Make sure your place is comfortable and allow yourself to be fully present.

PLAYBACK RECORDINGS

Each tending process will be recorded and made available on the website following the event for those who want to listen at a later time or more than once. An email with the audio recording will be sent out as a reminder.

December 8 @ 12PM MDT

FAQs

What does an SWB process look like?

The general outline of an SWB process is as follows. This process is facilitated by one of our trained community leaders and does not require experience to be a participant.

  • Introducing the issue that requires tending
  • Opening, protecting and calling allies into a ceremonial container
  • Journeying from a place of neutrality for instructions
  • Tending to the situation based on the information given
  • Blessing what was tended
  • Thanking and releasing the container

“When we prepare for our healing ceremonies, we journey to the spirit of the situation to look for guidance. This might be the spirit of the land, the soul of a community, country or the spirit of a culture, or collective consciousness. We ask the simple question, “What would be the most effective way that we can be of service?”. Sometimes the answer is clear. Sometimes it is unexpected. Sometimes the answer is to not do any ceremony at all.

 

Because we conduct this journey with the assistance of our tried and true spirit friends of kindness, we can trust that their answers come from a place more resourced than we could find on our own. This sacred listening practice is revelatory and healing to all beings. As we are all connected through unseen webs, answering the call for healing in this way brings healing to ourselves as well, through a beautiful circle of offering and gratitude. Blessed be.”

What tools are recommended to use during an SWB process?

We suggest being in a ceremonial space, setting up an altar and lighting a candle. You may also want to have any tools you already work with such as a drum, rattle, feathers, tobacco, crystals, etc.
