The Art of Shamanic Circling
Articles and Books about creating and sustaining Shamanic Circles.

The material on these webpages addresses some of the many issues involved in developing and sustaining a shamanic circle. We desire and accept contributions from those of you wishing to write about your experiences in this area. Learning how to create Circle is itself a major challenge in shamanic practice. Learning how to work with other Circles with common intentions is another facet of this.

Each of us learning and finding ways of supporting our individual walk is equally important. In the future, we intend to focus on these three interrelated aspects of shamanic practice. If you have contributions you wish to make, please send. If you have comments you wish to share, please send also. If there are issues you wish to see addressed, let us hear from you. We hope these materials are of benefit to the development of shamanic circles.
