Flow-Dreaming is a guided deep trance journey in which you go into the cosmic flow.
It is not a shamanic journey. You are not going into the spirit world to do the work. You are working The Flow---as in "going with the flow"---of the universe.
Flow-dreaming it is a valuable tool for learning to go into trance and create change there. That is why occasionally we use the Flow-Dreaming CD at Houston Shamanism Meetup this Saturday, January 12, starting around 6 pm. (Doors locked and no entry after 6:30 or so).
This time we are using it to begin get 2013 off to a good start for the Earth and for us all.
Also at Saturday's Meetup we will do a special shamanic trance posture from the Saami people of northern Scandinavia. Everyone who can should bring a hoop drum or frame drum to use for the posture. Or even a large round or oval box top, such as the lid if an old-fashioned hatbox.
The Meetup always consists of a ceremony that includes smudging, drumming, rattling, chanting, and probably healing posture and/or a shamanic journey. It is important to dress comfortably as we sit and/or lie down on the floor during the ceremony.
Some cushions are provided, but it is nice to bring a mat or sleeping bag and a light blanket if you can. Sorry, this Meetup is not suitable for children or pets.
