Drumming in Sacred Circle
We come together in Sacred Circle to connect on a deep level and enjoy a time of drumming, singing, chanting, sharing our stories and in co-created prayer. Starfeather has been bringing people together in circles in the Seattle area since 1990. As facilitator, she establishes and holds the bowl of energy of the gathering to create a special experience that is healing and joyful. She is a ceremonialist recognizes the importance of empowering each gathering as a sacred event and ceremonial experience. Calling in and honoring the energies of the Directions brings power and spiritual connection to the gathering.
Shamanic Journey Circles
Journeys are guided by Starfeather for the purpose of connecting with your Higher Self and your Spiritual Guides. Two types of journeys are regularly offered in a group setting: Shamanic Journey to Retrieve Past-Life Memories and Shamanic Journey to the Sacred Earth Healing Temple of Light & Sound.
Spiritual Retreats for women offer us an opportunity to step out of our everyday world to journey within. With the help of Nature and time away from routine, we are more easily able to connect with our Higher Self, with of spiritual guidance. We open our hearts in ceremony. In Circle with others we pray, drum, share and witness. Time alone, time together, time in Nature. We are seekers, each reaching deeper within ourselves to honor our Path and quest for understanding and focusing on our life, our purpose, our joy. Join us for an enriching experience.

Beginning September 2019, our small group woman meets in Sacred Circle every other month on the 3rd Sunday of the month from 10:30 to 3:30 PM, through June 2020. During this gathering we meditate, share our journey in talking-stick fashion, drum and chant, sing Circle songs, and pray. Starfeather will offer a teaching at each Circle. We support each other as spiritual sisters on the Path.
On the alternate months, you will have a private meeting with Starfeather. It is here that your unique gifts are nurtured and encouraged through personal guidance and sharing. This appointment, scheduled individually, is a 2 hour check-in, which may include teaching, elder counseling, healing work, or Spirit Guide connection.

Learning the Cherokee Medicine Wheel is a fundamental part of the Mentoring Program. You experience ceremony and create your own ritual to create an energy vortex, calling to the powers of the Directions.
Singing/chanting and drumming are also an important part of our Circle. You will develop confidence and learn to focus your power of your voice, your rattle and drum. Circle songs as shared and vocalizing is encouraged.
There will be a reading requirement that involves some time of study of Native American and earth-based spirituality.
