1 or 2 times per month | Cost: FREE

We have a monthly Call-to-Action typically on the fourth Thursday of the month and regular Rapid Response Call-to-Actions as events arise.

Connect with other Shamanic practitioners as we work together as a community to tend to the suffering of our world.

Shamanic practitioners have been gathering together to tend disasters, trauma and suffering within their communities throughout human history. In our time, we can work together as a shamanic community in an entirely new way through the power of technology.

Community Call-to-Action (CTA) events are opportunities to work as a global community and use our combined shamanic skills to tend to the suffering of our times. Events are led by Community Leaders who are trained in the Shamanism Without Borders Process. Leaders begin preparing for the event before the Community CTA by journeying for guidance about what needs tending and how best to lead the event. These leaders create a strong container during the event and guide participants in the Shamanism Without Borders process.

Every one of us brings our unique abilities to this work. Everyone is welcome no matter how much shamanic journey experience you have had.

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

We hope you can set aside the time to join us for this important and necessary work.

More information about these events will be announced in the week before the CTA. Zoom call info will be emailed out the day before and morning of the event date to those on the mailing list. Please enter your name and email in the blue box form to the right to get on the mailing list and be emailed when the next CTA occurs.

PLAYBACK
Each CTA event will be recorded and made available on the website for those who want to listen at a later time or more than once. An email with the audio recording will be sent out when playback is available.

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 a tending process, 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.”

~Provided by SWB Community Leader Tasara Jen Stone

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.
