At the retreat
center Åsbacka, located in the southern Swedish woods, we
have the opportunity to do varied kinds of spirit work in a
wild natural setting. These occasional days are intended to help
people at all points of their shamanic paths. We come together to
widen our experience of many possible ways of working with the Spirits
- not only journeying, but also nature work, ceremony, song and
dance. By sharing in the circle and learning from each other, participants
are encouraged to keep their shamanic practice vibrant and feel
a deeper relationship to both the Spirits, themselves and the world
Days run from 10.00 to 17.00.
Please note that no accommodation is available.
Roots are essential to life - but often they remain hidden and unseen, and we may not notice them. This day will help us to shift our focus, from the more obvious above ground to what happens underneath.
When we care for the roots, the whole being is nurtured. They connect us to the past and give us gifts for the future. They are our ancestors and everything that has brought us to this moment. Through our roots we connect to life and receive what we need.
Now is a good time to prepare for the growing season. We cannot sow seeds in life and hope they will do well if we do not also tend to our roots. Together with the Spirits, we will explore the importance of roots in the world, and how that reflects in our lives. What soil do we grow in? How do we receive nourishment? How are we connected to our spiritual roots? What happens when we become uprooted? What can the Earth teach us about community and communication through its network of roots? How can we help the Earth’s rooting be steady in times of stormy weather and challenge?
We will work with drum journeys, song and nature to learn more about the role of roots in our lives and how to make them strong, vibrant and healthy.
