WHAT ARE OUR MONTHLY GOLDEN ENSO SHAMANIC CIRCLES?

Zen circles, ensō, are symbols of teaching, reality, enlightenment, perfect in their continuity, balance, and sense of completeness, and yet often irregular in execution. They are at once the most fundamentally simple and the most complex shape with endless expression variations. Ensō evoke power, dynamism, charm, humor, drama, and stillness.

Ensō symbolizes a moment when the mind is free to simply let the body/spirit create. And you will be free to express yourself in accordance with the beauty of imperfection. Be ready to merge fully each month with powerful Toltec Rituals, Ceremonies, Initiations, Storytelling, Sharing time, Japanese Shamanic Forest Bathing, Cacao Ceremonies, Rites, Mandalas  and Esoteric Numerology readings to find your Ikigai (your soul mission), Divination tools, Shamanic Journeys, Meditations and more. Our Circles will happen in person,  in the Art and Spirituality Centre in Gorgie) or online according to the current time, but they will be there for you each month. Our Circles are Golden and you need to be an Inner Explorer to be part of them. “Since the earliest times, the golden thread has been the symbol of a knowledge that comes from personal experience and is free from institutional conditioning. It is a thread because it represents the continuity of an experience that is always old and always new. This thread is golden because it is immortal. “ Raimon Panikkar (Spanish philosopher and  theologian )

WHAT IS A SHAMANIC JOURNEY AND WHAT IS SHAMANISM?

Shamanic meditation is simple, even for beginners. It is similar to eastern meditation practices, but it doesn’t concentrate on leaving behind the stresses and illnesses of daily life. Instead, it focuses on using a spiritual connection to heal these worldly concerns in their roots.
You will lie down, close your eyes and, transported by the driving beat of Giada’s drum, you’ll be guided in your own powerful shamanic journey as a deep evolution of communication with your spiritual guides (your higher self as well as others) to lead you on a personal journey of healing and understanding. You will journey to find your power animal ally and with a purpose, a question to gain insight into an issue that you want to know more about. And you will come back with your ally and an answer.
Going on a shamanic journey, you will able to access the other worlds through your dreaming body, into non-ordinary reality. This is what happens when you dream in your sleep, but in a shamanic journey you learn to dream awake.

Shamanism is a spiritual practice that goes beyond every beliefs and culture and is about trying to reach your full potential as you walk on planet earth, so connecting yourselves to the whole. Shamans were described as the first physicians, magicians, artists, storytellers, spiritual beings. But shamans are healers that make changes in invisible realms to help healing in the ordinary reality of the community. Shamans see in the darkness while connecting with the divine outside the time in an altered state of consciousness.

Some powerful benefits from Shamanic drumming:

  1. Reduce stress
  2. Improves concentration
  3. opens up acceptance of self
  4. it encourages the body to desire a healthier lifestyle
  5. beneficial to your cardiovascular health
  6. boosts your immune system
  7. induces a deeper self-awareness by prompting synchronus brain activity and alpha waves
  8. helps releasing negative feelings and emotional trauma

February Shamanic Circle

With Giada from Invisible Caims 

The mood of our Monthly Shamanic Circles at the Art and Spirituality Centre in Gorgie, Edinburgh is  powerful, dynamic, charming, funny, artistic and relaxing. 

The theme of February will be Life uncertainty. 

Recognizing the uncertainty of all life, and not just the pandemic time, teaches us about the impermanence of all things and people, in a society based on the search for stability. But this search produces fatigue and suffering, because stability does not belong to nature, it cannot be produced, except in artificial ways based on forced balances. 
We will practice together the wabi sabi rituals practised by Japanese monks to make uncertainty a positive founding value of our lives. 

Expect Wabi Sabi Japanese Rituals from the Yamabushi Shamans Be ready to take a shamanic journey accompanied by Giada’s drumming and be in touch with your spirits allies to ask questions for which you need guidance. 

Be open to receive and explore!

12th February 2-4pm

Creative Shamanic Workshop

Follow your heart: chakra painting, soul mates and shamanic journey

With Giada from Invisible Caims 

Monthly Creative Shamanic Workshops

LOVE IS A CREATIVE STATE

Falling in love is a state of annulment of the ego. 

You can fall in love with a kitten, a lake, a human being, a work of art, an ideal.

Being in love is a state of ecstasy and always ecstasy takes you beyond the ordinary mind, allowing you to approach the Divine. 

This workshop is asking you to put aside everything that is commonly said and known about the relationship and the stereotype of the soul mate.

The emotional relationship is a very important element in everyone’s life and it is an element that can give a lot in terms of spiritual elevation, up to ecstasy, to union with the Divine, of which our partner is always the symbol. Love, in fact, is always impersonal. Those who love are elevated, healed, empowered. This is not due to having found the right person, but to having found love within oneself. The so-called ‘right person’ is a mirror of the possibilities, the talents, the wonder that we carry within us.

It is possible to attract your soul mate, to cultivate and grow the relationship to a point of fulfilment so intense that you can say you are in a state of ecstasy, but first you have to enter into a relationship with your soul and the karma that guides you.

We will talk about this burning topic and will then reach an ecstatic state through a shamanic journey and afterwards you will express your creativity through chakra painting

5th February 6.15-7pm
