This is an affiliation with the Shamanism Without Borders program as run by the Society for Shamanic Practice. This is a recorded ceremony of a Shamanism Without Borders call that we have completed in the past. If you’re interested in viewing the archives, click below.
There is a feeling of isolation that is becoming more apparent during these fast paced times. People we thought we knew well turn out to be surprising us – and sometimes not in the good way. Inspired by the most recent shootings in Dayton, OH, this Virtual Ceremony will focus on how we isolate ourselves without meaning too.
As Sandra Ingerman says, the microcosm reflects the macrocosm. That which is within us is reflected out in our environment, and vice versa. Many can often either feel numbed out or overwhelmed by the events of today’s time. How do we move forward with integrity while keeping our hearts open without collapsing in on itself due to compassion fatigue? This is a very real question that we must ask ourselves as we move forward as a culture. As we process the grief of the human beings lost in these mass shootings, may we ask the deeper question of, “Who in me feels isolated”? The people behind the guns are still people, and often the feeling of isolation contributes to them performing these violent acts. As we come together in community, may we see this aspect of ourselves rise in this situation so we may do what is necessary to heal these cultural wounds by exploring them on an individual level through this hour long virtual ceremony.
This ceremony can be taken as many times as you feel as necessary. It’s recorded for a reason 🙂

Don’t forget to either wash your hands, take a spiritual bath, or spiritual shower to help seal in this work physically. As you wash, imagine your emotional body being cleansed of this grief, and allowing it to flow back to source.
If you feel like more grief needs to move, feel free to use this at home grief ritual. This is where you will find a recorded mp3 with wolf howls spliced in.
Many blessings to you! And thank you for doing the work! Or at least being interested in it 🙂
