A Humanitarian Crisis in Ethiopia

Tuesday, March 16th | Led by Lisha Hengeveld

The Tigray region of Northern Ethiopia is undergoing violent conflict. The scenario there includes destruction of homes and farmland, many thousands of refugees and millions lacking basic resources, war crimes, human rights violations, genocide, and famine. Please join us in seeing how we may be of service to the peoples and land of Tigray and surrounding areas. Powerful change happens in the world when we attend to what needs addressing within ourselves.

Tending to Tigray ceremony will use the Shamanism Without Borders process to illuminate what needs attention within ourselves and the hyperlocal spaces in which we live. As we bring balance to these inner spaces, our steadiness lays the foundation for equilibrium to expand naturally into the world around us.

To prepare, create sacred ceremonial 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.

**Zoom call info will be emailed with a reminder the day before and the day of the ceremony. If you have an active membership with the Society for Shamanic Practice or have signed up for a Call-to-Action event in the past, you will be automatically invited to all future Call-to-Action events and do not need to sign up again**

What is SWB?

  • Shamanism Without Borders (SWB) is a global response network of shamanic practitioners who tend to traumatic events and natural disasters.

What does an SWB process look like?

  • Establish what requires tending.
  • Open, protect and call allies into the container.
  • Journey from a place of neutrality for instructions.
  • Tend to the situation based on the information given.
  • Bless what was tended.
  • Thank and release the container.

What tools are recommended to use during a process?

  • We suggest being in a ceremonial space, setting up an altar and lighting a candle.
  • Any tools you already work with. Drum, rattle, feathers, tobacco, crystals, etc.

How can I continue the tending process or receive additional support?

  • Feel free to continue connecting through our member’s forum.
  • If you are interested in learning more about the practice of Shamanism Without Borders and how to facilitate this meaningful work, we invite you to join our network and gain instant access to a free 3-part audio training by visiting please visit shamanicpractice.org/swb for more info.
