Background: After doing an immense amount of research on Earth-Wisdoms across cultures, I began working with a circle of stones that corresponded to the directions, elements, totems, energies, and aspects of Source. During this work, I discovered I had stumbled upon a deeper part of myself that had been teasing my consciousness since I was a child. I was finally able to conceive why I collected stones from any place I visited, and needed to have particular gems when I went to Pagan shops. I began to realize the similarities between the Stone Circles of Ancient Britain, the Mesa Carriers of Peruvian Shamanism, the Medicine Wheels of the Native Americans, and any Earth-Based religion that realized the energy that can be accessed from stones and the grid of Earth Energies below us! During my study of this European Shamanic practice, I met Sobonfu Some, a Dagara Shaman from Africa. I found out from her that I am a Mineral Keeper--one who gathers stories, prefers structure, brings passion out of others, and most importantly is drawn to gemstones because Mineral Keepers know that memories and wisdom are stored within them.
Over my years of study in Seminary, I worked to thoroughly understand the elaborate energies of the circle of stones I now carry and look to as my spiritual companions. Performing rituals that align my consciousness with the energies of the seasons, and activating the 9 stones that make up the configuration of my Sacred Circle is my passion. I have written a book explaining the rituals, energies and my discoveries about Shamanism. I am now offering the wisdom of this Path in a series of Ritual Workshops in both Southern and Northern California, AND NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE. During these events you will learn about the distilled-down ancient practices from many cultures in which you will utilize and integrate their core energies. It has been my goal as the Elder Keeper of this Path to make sure not to misappropriate from other cultures, and assist anyone of any spiritual persuasion in their use of this magnificent magical system.
EACH RITUAL WORKSHOP INCLUDES:
Journey Work based on the energy of the Direction we are studying.
Ritual Work to transform particular parts of your life.
Creative Practices like collage, writing, and trance dance to enhance the practice.
Instruction on how to use your own personal Sacred Circle of Stones wherever you are.
