The third of three articles by Tony on shamanism at Easton Mountain.

This week gay men who practice the ancient healing principles and methods of shamanism, for themselves or for others, will once again gather for the tenth time at Easton Mountain’s welcoming Land.

The retreat, first held in 2007, has met annually, with the exception in 2014, which makes the timing of the 10th Retreat rather serendipitous taking place in 2017 – a number “10” year. A good friend, a professional numerologist, wrote earlier this year about 2017 being a number “10” year:

The "10" in numerology is all about new beginnings with the added quality of the zero - the vibration of potential and reaching into the unknown for answers. 2017 is a powerful year of new beginnings and stepping up for what you believe in.

I also like to think that with each new beginning something needs to end, and that the number "10" holds two simultaneous energies – the “to complete energy” of "10" plus the “to commence” energy of "1 + 0 = 1".

Here are some photos from past shamanic retreats at Easton Mountain.


There's still time to make your reservation for the tenth annual Gay Men's Shamanic Retreat, which will be held September 22-24, 2017.
