Winter Solstice Drum Circle (In Person and Live Stream)

Our drum circles are held four times a year on the solstices and equinoxes. The focus of our circles is on healing for individuals, the community, and the earth. Ours is the longest running drum circle in the San Francisco Bay Area, having started in 1998.

The format for the circle includes calling power, drum circle meditation (or journey), healing circle and closing circle. Please note that this is not a jam or free form drumming (except for the calling of power). We follow an ancient practice of altering consciousness using a repetitive beat. There are no counter beats, harmonies, or melodies.

You do not have to be experienced in drumming or shamanism to attend. If you have a shamanic journey practice, you will be able to journey during the drumming circle, though experience with the shamanic journey is not required. If you are interested in learning more about journeying, you can find information about the Sacred Stream’s Shamanic Journey class here: The Shamanic Journey.

If you have a drum or rattle, please bring it. Some drums and rattles will be available to borrow.

Circles for the Earth (Live Stream)

The Circles for the Earth practices were originally established during the devastating California drought that lasted from 2011 to 2016. We naturally understood that the drought was part of the larger issue of climate change affecting the entire globe. When the rains came to California in the winter of 2016, we shifted our focus to bringing these same practices to other areas of the earth that were experiencing the consequences of climate change, pollution, or other negative effects of human activity.

Introduction to Shamanism (Live Stream)

In recent history, the term “shamanism” has been adapted by contemporary societies to refer to the vast knowledge and practices held in indigenous, nature-based cultures. These cultures have existed on the planet since the beginning of humanity. Each shamanic culture has its own unique language and understanding of the origins of the world and the nature of reality. These culturally defining aspects are referred to as “cultural shamanism.” There are also elements of shamanism that are not unique to any one culture, and are in fact common to all shamanic cultures. Applied Shamanism refers to the application of “core” methods of shamanic practice found in all shamanic traditions, with an emphasis on healing and integrity. In this workshop, you will learn about shamanism, Applied Shamanic Practice, and shamanic healing.
