Shamanism on Death & Dying Workshop

Shamanism on Death, DyingCircle of Life
And Rebirth

With Gary Gent of Shamanic Connection
July 18, 2015 | 10 am to 5 pm
Energy Exchange – $ 190
($50 non-refundable deposit due by 6/19/15)
Private Residence, Mt. Laurel, NJ

Life is a continuous series of deaths and rebirths.  We experience the physical death of friends, family, and pets throughout our lives. We also experience the death and birth of relationships, careers, and of aspects of our personality. “Dying” is a way to remove what no longer serves us so that we may truly live.

This powerful workshop explores your views about death and dying.  You will delve into your belief system, exploring your fears about death, the process of dying, loss of control, and your views about “life after death”.

The core of this workshop is a powerful guided journey through the death process, crossing over to Spirit, experiencing the birthing process and growing to your current age. The day concludes with sharing your experiences and a discussion of the Shamanic view of the death and dying process.

Join us for these experiential days in the healing ways of the shaman.

Please wear comfortable clothes as we will be playing on the floor.

Summer Solstice Celebration at Shaman’s Grove

I haven’t been blogging lately or posting much on Facebook. I am slowly (and I mean slowly) recovering from a concussion. Physically I’m pretty much back to normal, but my poor little scrambled brain isn’t quite up to snuff. So, writing, email, etc. is a challenge. As soon as I’m feeling “normal” again, I’ll start writing. We wanted to get these flyers out to you so you can keep on top of upcoming events.

So, until next time,




Creating the Sacred Drum— A Drum Making Playshop
Saturday, June 20, 2015 | 10am – 5pm
Energy Exchange: $250 ($100 non-refundable materials deposit due by 6/15/15)

drums Making your own drum begins a journey as you give birth to this instrument of Spirit. This drum making playshop involves not only the learning of a physical skill but also a journey into the realm of Spirit. Ceremonies are done throughout the day to connect you to the spirits of the elk and cedar tree as well as the spirit of the drum. Birthing your drum begins a relationship of healing, learning and teaching between you and Spirit through the drum as it sings its song.

15” elk hide drums on cedar hoops and beaters.

Don’t miss out on this great playshop!   Space is limited.

Energy Exchange $50 per Person ($25 non-refundable deposit due by 6/15/15)

Come help us build the medicine wheel here at Shaman’s Grove and spend the afternoon exploring the energies of the Medicine Wheel.

MedwheelThis workshop is an experiential day working with Medicine Wheel Energies and your Light Body energy.  The Native American Medicine Wheel is based on the perception that all things are related and must be in harmony for the earth to be in balance.  It acts as a springboard of power that will allow you to connect with all the energies of the Universe.  All will participate in creating the Medicine Wheel and learn how to apply its energies to daily life through exercises and ceremonies.  These exercises and ceremonies will help you get in touch with a directional totem, as well as gain knowledge and energy from the spirits of the wheel, which can heal both yourself and Mother Earth.
