8th Annual Gay Shamans Retreat
Nurturing & Cultivating Your Shamanism Practice
We inhabit a time and culture that serves up many forms of busy, and while some are productive and inspiring, others distract and divert us down rabbit holes. Our annual retreat is an opportunity to press thepause button and to review, and maybe reboot, your relationship with shamanism practice in the company of kindred men and in nature. The call is being made for Gay Shamans to gather in community during the bliss-filled season of the year where nature is nourished and growth abounds –as Above, so Below- a fertile time between the Vernal Equinox and the Summer Solstice when seeds have sprouted and their potential, to flourish and fulfill their destinies, are manifested. With core shamanic journeying, ceremony, and ritual, you will have the opportunity to reflect, refine and sync your spiritual shamanism practice, and share the wisdom and experiences you embody living as a Two-Spirit shaman. You will be supported on how you hold your vision and make it available to all your relations.
The retreat welcomes gay men who are active practitioners of shamanism and use journeying to shift into non-ordinary reality to commune with their Spirit allies providing healing for themselves and others.
