Common Thread - Thursday - May 5th, 2011

The Common Thread Group will meet in Waveland Hall at 7pm.
This month we are going to change things around just a bit.  Just want to keep you on your toes!!! ;o)

We will begin our meeting with a few short announcements and Cathy Lindsay's astrological report for the month.  We will close our meeting with a love and healing meditation.  The energy that we create with our group is a wonderful feeling to take home with us!

Our May speaker is Carole Meade.
The title of her presentation is
Shamanic Journeying:  Walking Between Worlds

The shamanic journey is a practice common to all indigenous societies throughout history, dating back for thousands of years. The oldest burial site for a shaman, who happened to be a woman, was dated to 60,000 years ago. The fact that it has survived for thousands of years speaks to the potency of the work. By listening to a drumbeat or other rhythmic percussion, the shamanic journeyer enters "non-ordinary reality" - an altered state of consciousness beyond time and space - to access spiritual guidance and healing, assist others and the planet and to reconnect with the cycles and rhythms of nature. Join me to learn more about shamanic journeying and to experience a short journey into non ordinary reality.

Carole has been studying Shamanic Journeying and Healing for the past 17 years. Recently, she has been studying with Sandra Ingerman in the Two Year Teacher Training in Santa Fe, NM.
